Where is it?

Have you seen my holiday spirit? I'm not sure it has arrived yet. I don't know what to do. I've got a million and one things to do, but I can not get motivated to do any of it. I have a cookie excahnge that I am attending on Saturday, but I've not even picked out a recipe. I have another exchange for my mom's group the following Tuesday and my house is a disaster area. My dining room is trashed. Can't even see the top of the table. The tree has been up for over a week. It had maybe 4 ornaments on it. I need to take them off and really decorate the tree.

(Looking at the photos I took with the point n' shoot makes me think that it is ruined. It got left outside in the seat compartment of Miss's K wagon for days...in the rain.)

I think I am depressed. I honestly think it has to do with babies. It seems like a lot of my friends who have kids Miss K's age are pregnant with their second child. Did we make the wrong decision? Should we have tried one more time? If we do decide to actually adopt a baby, how long will that take? It just makes me a little sad. My neighbor recently had a baby girl, so I get some new baby smell when I need it.

Gotta snap out of it.

Miss K has been a little sickly lately. Nothing that every other kid in town doesn't already have. Constant runny nose. Thankfully, she has learned to blow her nose and she thinks it's funny to do it, so that works. I would hate the thought of trying to actually hold her down and suction it out!

I gotta run. Blog ya later!

Do the Italian Sprinkle Cookies again! They are so yummy:)

Please don't be depressed..you have a lot to be thankful for and I know that you know that:) I understand the fear of trying again..you don't want "that" to happen again..and I don't blame you. I feel the same way right now..about seeing my friends newborn babies..except my reason for not getting pregnant is that I don't have time for another one right now..and I feel so selfish..what kind of reason is that! I should just quit working, but then I think I have worked so hard to get where I am. I have a million different feeling right now..so I just try to stay busy so maybe I won't have to deal with feelings right now..sigh:(

Have fun with Miss K & the potty..she is so adorable!
Hugs!

I am so with you about not being in the Christmas spirit. Different issues, but same feelings. You know I have seriously thought about adoption as well, Brian is just not on the same page. Maybe someday. Have you ever looked into foster to adopt. My neighbors keep foster children so it has kind of put the idea into my head. It might be another option to consider. Anyway, thinking of you Miss Hollye, and thanks for your sweet words about Aidan-pooh. I think we are going to head to Tx for the holiday and just load him up on tylenol and benadryl and hope for the best.
