I have found that coffee is my best friend in the mornings! As soon as I get up I can't get it out of the coffee pot fast enough. I've seen those Keurig machines that make one cup at a time and they make one in like 2 minutes-wow that would be Heaven! I can't tell you how many times a day I want a cup of coffee during the afternoon or even at night yet I don't want to make a whole pot. But has anyone seen the price on those machiens?!? they're at least $100 and then you have to buy those miniature K cups that are incredibly expensive too. Keeping up with buying those would cause me to get a job on third shirt!

My computer is still down. I still haven't fixed anything so I can get to my pictures. Yesterday my existing camera card was officially full with 1527 pictures. I'm going today to get a new memory card so I can at least take pictures over Christmas. I just couldn't go through the holidays without hundreds and hundreds of pictures. Then I suppose I'll figure the computer situation out after Christmas is over. It's enough to make me cry and drive me crazy at the same time right now.

This week is insane-who ever thought of the idea of letting kids out the entire week of Christmas? It was obviously not a parent that had last minute shopping to do in order to get done. Especially not a parent with 4 kids and a husband that is hardly ever home! Driving me crazy!!!! I cleaned everything yesterday-got the house cleaned and then he walked in this morning to go to work and tracked mud from his boots all over the carpet! :( I may not sanely make it to next year! I am so missing blogging and posting about everything with the kids. When I get my pictures and computer back up and running I am going to have tons and tons of catching up to do-you all will get sick of pictures :)

Glad you are atleast able to check in. I hear ya. I have a few stocking stuffers to get and have not had the time with the kids running around here:) It always ends up getting done though. Good luck with the computer. I am feeling your pain...that was me in the summer I went crazy.

Yes, I have to say I had one of those coffee pots and it is NOT all they are cracked up to be. The coffee is sooo expensive that you spend your mortgage on 20 cups of coffee. I went and bought a Cuisinart @ Kohls that I love..LOL

Bring on the pictures! :)

It is crazy. I've always enjoyed December, but it's getting harder to do so w/ all the busyness.

Here my son had school yesterday & today is their last day. It's nice because of reasons you listed, but it's also insane they have school at ALL this week. It's delaying our baking.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! try to enjoy it. :)

Seriously doubt I could ever be sick of precious photos of your kids!! I always think there is a lesson being taught to us during trying times like this... any thoughts as to what that may be? Have you had to focus your attention elsewhere or spent your time differently? I usually feel better once I realize something came out of the experience!

Shannon said...

Those Keurig machines do look great. But you're right about the $$$$$!!!
Good idea with the new memory card. Try to stay sane at least through Christmas. :)

Erin said...

The kids here don't have This entire week off! But I think they have all of next week off. Cole is in 1st grade and he has tomorrow off but the past two days has been in school :). I am taking the other 3 out today to finish some last minute things!

Can't wait to see all your pictures! I am so not a coffee drinker!

Stephanie said...

I still enjoy your posts without pictures :) Joe has tracked mud into the house after I've cleaned, too. UGH. I think I almost killed him.

I hear you on how difficult it is to go out and do stuff with kiddos, and I only have two! You should have seen me at the post office with Audrey on my hip, with my big ole belly and Alyssa right next to me. Never mind the fact that I looked silly holding the packages I was sending off in a huge garbage bag! The lady at the counter even said "Ho, ho, ho" when she saw me! Oh boy...good times!

P.S. Know what you mean too about the trouble with hubbies tracking in mud. That's why we started the no shoe rule in the house. It's a pain but it's worth it!

Isn't it crazy that I do not drink caffeine? None what so ever?!?! Some days I think to myself that I am so insane for this but I haven't had any in six years!!! J is a big coffee drinker, recently I bought him the Keurig. It's GREAT!!! Not only does it make coffee but tea and hot chocolates. I love it just as much as he does! I've thought about doing a giveaway on my blog for one... I'll let you know if I do :)

Do you have a computer repair shop there? My computer died with TONS of pictures on it and I almost died. Since I am a photographer, my life and work is on my computer. (No, I didn't have the sense to back up my work...) Thankfully I found a computer repair shop who could get EVERYTHING off my computer even though my cpmputer was way past dead and couldn't be saved. I was so thankful!!

I am ready for school to start back!!!!!!!

Nah, we won't get sick of pictures. NEVER! Afterall, I'm a picture freak. Have you met me? Oh wait - no you haven't met me. But you know me well enough. ha ha ha

Hope you stay sane til you get your computer woes fixed. =0)

Merry Christmas!!!

Glad you are getting a new memory card. :)

Wish I could help with the computer situation.

Merry Christmas!

♥Kim said...

Ha I look forward to seeing ALL of them! :)

Hang in there, it's only another week or two with the kids! ;/

Hope you guys have a Merry Christmas!

Alicia said...

Coffee is my BFF too! I would be lost without it in the morning!!

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas, and I hope your computer gets fixed soon!!

Heather said...

Can't wait for the pictures - bring it on!!!

Becca said...

I cant wait to see all the pictures!! :-) ps - I didnt start drinking coffee til Jayci was born and now I seriously cant live without it!

Kelli @ RTSM said...

My kiddos are out of school for two whole weeks....and it is much harder to get stuff done with them running around the house! Luckily my parents and sisters have watched them for me so I can get some last minute stuff done! I'm glad you are going to be able to take some pics...can't wait to see them!

I have one of those coffee machines and they are heaven. You don't have to buy the individual things for it. You can buy a thing for $10 and then can buy coffee and it is cheaper by a lot. I waited until I had a few gift certificates to Bed Bath and Beyond and then used a 20% off coupon.

I can't believe Christmas is almost here. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. Thinking of you and yours! xoxo
