Hi Honey. I hope your trip to Ohio is going well. I know it is cold, so just bundle up. I know how important work is and traveling is a part of it. I wanted to say I miss you and I can't wait to see you and give you a big ol' hug when you get home.
I have thought this morning - hmmm, I am finally noticing a trend here. You always seem to book a work trip - I don't know - THE WEEK WE ARE HAVING A CHRISTMAS PARTY!
I am writing you this quick note, because I know that when you are away from your family, you like to jump on the net real quick, and read the blog to get a quick little "fix" - you miss us so much.
HOW THE HELL DO YOU MANAGE TO DO THIS EVERY YEAR??
Anyway - I have a lot going on. Not only have we just come off a very stressful swim meet weekend, the kids are wrapping things up at school getting ready for a 2 week break, school holiday parties, I have to order the food for our party, order the plates, wine glasses, and utensils, go to Costco, bake cookies and whoopie pies for the kids to take to school, get the laundry done, go to the Doctor this morning, shampoo the carpets, wash the kitchen floor, finish decorating the family room Christmas tree, still do the garlands on the banister, take Garrin to a swim lesson, get the kids to and from school and then to and from the pool, pay some bills, find timers for the lights outside so I don't have to keep plugging them in and them unplugging them when it is 11pm and about 30 degrees outside, finish up the Christmas shopping, get a gift out to the Wilson's that they will get for New Year's probably, start to think about what we are going to make for our actual Christmas dinner, make sauce, and probably one or two things I am not quite thinking of right now.
I just wanted to send my love to you, across this big ol' U- S- of A, baby. I can't wait to see you and snuggle up with a warm blanket in front of the fire with you....
MAYBE SOMETIME NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love love love - Gini
