Happy Thanksgiving every one!!

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I am very excited to be having my family over. I am making a huge turkey and all the trimmings. I spent all day today cleaning and got totally wiped out but it is going to be worth it.

I hope all my friends out there will have a great Thanksgiving also.

Feeling much better about life!!!

Well for the past week I have been back on my meds and I am starting to feel much more likable. I talked to my bosses about my feelings of unapreciation and over worked without much pay and they felt that I was justified but not to worry because money is comming my way and they really do appreciate me alot. I feel much better about work.

Now I just need to feel better about my home life. I feel like i send all problems at home to my hubby and make him handle it as much as he can. We started marriage counciling and it seems to be helping.

This week is really hard because Aaron has pink eye and now a soar throat. He has allready missed 3 days of work and now will be missing today and I know that this is selfish but I keep worring about his paycheck. Especially with Christmas comming. I want to have an enjoyable Christmas this year. And I know that money can not make you happy but it can make things easier when you have the money to buy the things you need. So i am just praying that we can do that next month.

I am very excited abotu Christmas this year. I am not exactly sure why either. I mean its not any more special this year then previous. I actually should be sad aboutthis year because I don't have my friends nearer to me. But I really am excited. I can not wait to get to put my tree up and decorate. I can not wait to spend time with my family doing holiday things. And I am really excited for the Christmas play that my work is doing.

Trick or Treat!!

Well besides the below events, I think that Halloween was a great time for my girls this year. Kayla dressed as a fisherman, Cherise a purple Leopard, and Maddy a white bunny. They got to go to a party at a friends, and then go trick or treating at the Tower. Then they had a party at the school and finally we did house to house trick or treating. They made out big time there. ANd they got lots of chocolate which I love. Unfortunatly i did not get any pictures of any of the Halloween fun. But the memories will last forever.

Feeling very unapreciated!!

Ok i volenteered to plan the Halloween party for work. First mistake! It consisted of a haunted house, fishing game, painting under a black light, face painting, and treats.

Monday I spent a good 45 minutes blacking out a room with big black garbage bags only to be old there was a change we could not do that activity because they did not yet have the paint or the black lights.

So then yesterday. I did my usual cleaning after lunch and was trying to get some of the decorations up I could while the little one slept in the room for the Haunted house. But there was this mom that was freaking out because her little girls where watching movies everyday at relax time instead of being allowed to read books in a different room. So she came at relax time and put her kids in the main room and tread them books for a coog 45 minnutes making it difficult for me to be allowed to get what I needed done.

So it was time to get the Haunted house done (the biggest undertaking for the party). Where was my help. Well out getting groceries, or preparing snacks, or getting the paint for the black room. i had to have a parent help me which was very appreciated but hard because she had her daughter fallowing her. And the haunted house did not turn out like i would have liked it too.

SO we get the kids all dressed ( i never have a chance to get in my costume) and I explain to them what activities they can do and we send them off in groups to start with. I did the face painting which I actualy did not mind. But after getting all the kids done I hear that the haunted house is falling apart. Great!! All my hard work going down before its supost too. Oh well.

SO after we let the kids go trick or treating in the building and settle in one of the rooms to eat thier candy i was told to start cleaning up with the other girls.

So after planning a bomb diggidy party and doing all the decorations including hand drawing and painting an awesome witches cauldron out of cardboard, setting up and tearing down the Haunted house, blacking out the black light room, and doing the face painting, what thanks do I get?? Well none because my bosses where to worried about going out trick or treating with there kids to even care that I was leaving. Oh yea I feel very unapreciated.

They expect me to do some stuff for them for the Christmas program they are planning. And right now I am having a real hard time wanting to do any of it. But i will because I am excited to do all the drawing and painting they want. But they better show me some appreciation for this or I am out!!!
