Welcome to Monday Mumblings

Everyone seemed to enjoy my random list of thoughts in my head last Monday so I've decided to turn it into a regular Monday activity...

I make no promises that I'll be able to keep up with it, but I'll try my best.

So here is it...

Monday Mumblings:

1. Today is my sister's 25th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIN!

2. It's December 15th and we STILL don't have a Christmas tree. Honestly, I'm ok with not getting one this year, but it's a little sad since this is the 1st year that we've had presents wrapped and ready to go so early into December and we don't have a tree to put them under.

3. This is Chandler's last week of school before Christmas break... I've changed my mind about not looking forward to Christmas break... I'm looking forward to it for one simple reason... I won't have to get up before the sun!

4. I'm SO excited about the gifts we got for the girls this year!

5. Taking on the job of Cherub Choir (the pre-school choir) Director and the Nursery Coordinator at church has helped us out financially this Christmas. :) We have been able to pay for ALL of our Christmas gifts IN CASH!
**By the way... My Cherub Choir is singing in church this Sunday... I'll have to figure out how to post video of that! They are adorable and I NEVER know what kind of craziness will happen in the middle of our performances!

6. I'm anxious... maybe more excited than anxous... to see what is in store for us in 2009.

7. 2008 has been full of medical type stuff for us... I'm hoping for LESS of that in 2009.

8. I'm still working on my list of 30 things to do before I'm 30.

9. It has been slightly warmer this past week than it was on this day. For that, I am grateful!

10. Only 1 more Christmas party to attend and only 1 more Christmas program to sing in.

So what's floating around in your head this Monday?

Um... floating in my head is the fact that it's Tuesday here. That means we get to Christmas first! I'll be thinking of you still happily sleeping (or not yet in bed) while we are opeining our presents christmas morning and desperately trying to get to our churches 8am service in time to get a seat.

My very random list:
1) Ditto to your 3, 4, 6 & 7!
2) I'm wondering how to fall asleep at a decent hour like a normal person after pulling close to allnighters with sick kids the past few days.
3) how I really need to email you and place a few bow orders for A's birthday in February!
4) hoping school will be canceled b/c of freezing drizzle tonight
5) I really need to exercise instead of eating everything in sight!!!

Great list! I'm having a laugh at Mummy McTavish's comment - we do get to Christmas earlier!!! Is there a reason you don't have a tree? Well done on your christmas shopping - you are much more organised than I am there!
