I can't believe that it has been so long since I last posted. Since I last posted, my oldest son left home and is testing the waters of a "real life." I haven't heard much from him but my thoughts are frequently with him.

My other children are blossoming at school and enjoying their lives. We enjoyed Halloween and are preparing for the upcoming holidays. UMMM - Thanksgiving sounds soooo wonderful (plus time off of work!)

I have turned 40 and have reflected on my past and am looking forward to my future. I know where I am headed - now I just have to get there. My thoughts always lead me back to staying home and taking care of my family. There has to be a way . . . . Well, I have lots of time to work on this.

Thanksgiving is bound to be fun this year. Last year, JC was so sick and was getting his tonsils, and adnoids removed and got tubes put in his ears. Then he got bronchitis. He missed almost a whole month of school. The surgery was a success. He can hear and is excelling at school. He keeps telling us how last year he didn't get to eat turkey so this year he wants doubles!

Following close behind is Christmas. My dear friends always provide me with a countdown and I am at the panic mode because the Stay-home mom in me would so be done with her crafts by now. But the Working mama in me is just not there yet!

So I'm off to make menus, clean the house, and get some crafting in before I decide to put it all off until next years Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Til next time,
