Thinking about everything I need to get done in the next couple of weeks and organizing my lists. There are many lists.
Feeling sad for Elizabeth. She's had a rough couple of weeks and just hasn't felt well. Seizures and the worst migraine she'd ever experienced had me on edge for over a week but she's on the mend now. I'm sad that she has to keep going through this and I'm sad that she's sad.
Doing everything we can to look for the positive things in spite of the sadness. I'm so proud of the way she bounces back and always finds a way to smile.
Wishing that the holiday season came with a slower school schedule for the kids. But of course it doesn't. Their schedule gets even busier and I always seem to forget that.
Shopping even though most of my shopping for the kids was done before Halloween. I was so relieved to have it done but then you add in extended family, homemade items, neighbors, and teachers and on and on and it never ends.
Worrying about Emily's stress level. She knows that her junior year is the most important for college applications and she's very stressed with school, finals, speech team, library board meetings, and her job. I've finally convinced her to cut back on her hours at work. She's not happy because she's trying to save up for a trip to Germany but it's simply not worth jeoparding grades for.
Forgetting to take photos for December Daily. I don't know why but I've gone multiple days without taking photos so I need to do a bit of catching up.
Missing my hubby. He's in trial this week and next and just not here.
Hoping for some quiet time to just relax with the kids and Tom and enjoy the twinkle lights, some hot cocoa and some family time but realizing that it may not be this week.
