It's been too long. Bad, bad blogger.

We went to Frankenmuth for a night, last weekend. The weather was terrible. We still had fun, but cold, rainy, windy, is NOT my cup of tea. I'll have to post some pics. Alexa was amazed at Bronners.

John is aceing his second class so far. He's even "teaching" other students. Yay! He just signed up for the next two classes to finish the certification.

Ava's hair is getting darker. It makes me a little sad. I love her blond hair. So striking.

Alexa has finally said the "B" word about day care. Bored. She knows the curriculum inside and out. I was hoping Wendy would make it a little different, but we'll see.

John's job is on the line. Again. I'm actually tired of writing that. Basically, his boss has him safe until 12/19 - last day of work for the year. We'll see if they lay him off after that. She doesn't want to lose him, but, it won't be her decision. Good times.

My job is in jeopardy. I can't believe I'm saying that. The unions aren't budging on negotiations and neither is the county. I saw the concessions they wanted. I don't know what's worse, worrying about losing my job or trying to figure out a way to make up over a 10% pay cut. Even better times.

I think we are going to decorate for Christmas this weekend. Alexa will probably be too excited to speak in clear sentences. My girl loves Christmas.

Santa needs to do some shopping this weekend. I'm undecided if I will brave the other crazies on Black Friday. I go almost yearly. We'll see what's in the papers.

I need to do some scrapbooking. Way behind and way too many projects for Christmas gifts.

Off. To. Bed. :)
