I didn't realize how bad it had gotten. I haven't really done a "deep" cleaning since Blake has been born (keep in mind he just turned 10 months). Since my hubby and I got all the Christmas stuff out of the attic I thought it was a good time to clean the floors good before any Christmas stuff goes up in the house. We have wood floors, which I've learned to hate. They are just there so dust bunnies can easily collect now, this was never a problem when we had carpet. So, I got the vacuum out so I could start with the baseboards. Normally this would be an easy, quick and simple job....not so much when you have to watch your baby and this is his first time hearing the vacuum cleaner (Alexys normally vacuums before we get home). He screamed bloody murder, so I did it in spurts. I even flipped the couches and vacuumed under there as well. After all that was done I put up the tree. No ornaments, but the tree is up with lights and the room is clean.
Tonight Devon and I will put the ornaments on the tree. I like to do this as a family but I'm over "making" them do it. I shouldn't have to pull teeth to do traditions so I'll do them without them. Robert does at least put the angel on the tree for me but Alexys is just over the whole thing. Whatev!
This will be Blake's first Christmas! And our first Christmas as a happy party of 5! I want to decorate big this year and enjoy time with friends and family.

I have to say I hear alot about how thoughtful I am. I write down every ones birthdays, I mail a card. I write down couples anniversaries, they get a card. If I find out you are expecting a child, you guessed it, a card. I take pics of everything and try to get copies to the people they mean the most to. I believe the little things mean the most. And I try to do a little something for people. A friend of mine lost her mom a few years ago in a tragic way. It's on my calender, and on that day I always send her a text or email telling her I thought of her mom today. Occasionally I have even gone to the cemetery too. A little card to brighten someones day, a text to show you care, a silly gift to say you were thinking of them...these are the things I love to do. I know a few of my friends when they receive a card in the mail, before even looking at it they know it's from me. I'm ok with that. So I'm predictable in that way, but they know how much they mean to me and that's important.

I don't really know how to answer this one. I've thought about it for a few days. I'm a firm believe in everything happens for a reason. If I wish that I never met someone, that might change who I am today or where I am, in a positive or negative way. I wouldn't go as far as saying I've had a hard life by any means, but I've had my issues. But who doesn't? No matter how bad you thing you have it, there is someone that has it worse. Everything in my life, good or bad, was a learning experience and helped mold the women I am today. And I don't think that woman is half bad.
