I keep feeling like I should come here and write something but then I come here and I've got nothing. 

It's so much easier to throw a picture up on instagram(I had to go private again. Stalker) or one sentence on Facebook.  I do miss blogging though. Especially reading other people's.  

Been busy.  Super busy. 

Work. Sucking the life out of me.  It's the time of year. Everyone wants to come in before January first.  Well guess what people?  We're booked. You should have planned ahead like everyone else. 

Every day is an exercise in patience.  

But I'm lucky to have a job. 

Holiday prep is in full swing. 

Commercials, decorations, and Christmas lights are popping up every day. 

I'm loving all of it.  

Christmas is in 35 days.   Thirty five days!!  

We will be making our yearly trek up to my sister's house for thanksgiving again.  It will be just the three of us for thanksgiving dinner this year, since my sister's Ex-hole(sorry. It fits) has the kids on thanksgiving day this year. 

But we get them the day after and for the weekend.   We're going to get a Christmas tree, and watch Christmas movies and do all sorts of fun stuff.  I'm excited. 

I told Lisa we didn't need to do anything fancy for dinner.  Pizza would be fine with me but she says she's still going to get a turkey, which means we will have left overs for days.   Score! 

Joe really wants to try the overnight drive again.  I'm not so sure. I didn't enjoy it at all last year at Christmas when we did it.  It is nice to wake up and be there but it's brutal. 

If he gets his way we will leave at eight or eight thirty and arrive by two or three am.  I am wondering if the traffic will still be bad though.  Last year at Christmas we left on the 23rd so there was no traffic.  I have a feeling it won't be so for thanksgiving.  We will see.  

I'm almost done Christmas shopping and our staff Christmas party is a little over three weeks away, which is always a great time. I especially tend to have a good time, as my co workers will tell you if you ask.  :)

I'm getting a Christmas tree this weekend(a fake one). I know it's early!  I don't care.

I got new bedding. I love the colors. It's been eight years since I bought myself new bedding.  I needed something that would go with the yellow walls in my room and I love turquoise so when I saw this pattern I knew it was perfect.  Love it!  On my Christmas list too is new towels.  It's funny how our wish list changes when we are grown up.  

I had a lovely ride on Saturday.  My back seems to be on the mend. Thankfully. 

Bentley is going to move to his new home in a couple of weeks.  I'm excited to see the new place and also have another horse to ride so maybe joe and I can ride together!
We house sat last week and I got to cook in a kitchen again.  I made the most delicious meal.  I forgot how much I miss having a kitchen. Hopefully not much longer.  I'm so ready for my own place.  So ready.  
It was soooooo good. 

I suppose that's all for now.  Nothing too exciting here.
