Not much going on but I still feel overwhelmingly busy

My life has been busy, my house is a mess but nothing has struck me to write about. So, here are some of the highlights of the past few days:

--I have been taking care of my 18 year old nephew after dentist husband removed his wisdom teeth. Great boy and my kids worship him. He is now on the road to Idaho. FYI: My black bean soup was a hit with him.

--Kids are out of school.

--My birthday was super wonderful. Thanks to all of you well wishers as well as my local friends who joined me at Noodle and Company for the lunch celebration. Thanks Lisa for organizing it this year. (On a side note, I ate out all three meals, McDonalds in the AM, Noodle and Company in the noon hour and Barbacoa for dinner. Yes, I need to lose about 7 pounds now.)

--Book club was super nice this month. Catherine's house had such a great feel to it--nice and cozy.

--My four year old (toothsome #3) had a pre-school program and had a solo as well as a speaking part. I knew about the speaking part but NOT the solo. Who knew he had it in him?

--I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting Christmas cards.

--While it has taken me awhile to get into it, all and all I really liked Glen Beck's "The Christmas Sweater."

--I am still wasting a ton of time on Facebook.

--And last but not least, I spent three days with a magic eraser getting all of the pen marks off my walls done by toothsomes 3 and 4. What in the world? Have these children never heard of paper?

Merry Christmas!

In my house, they have definitely heard of paper. It is used for cutting into teeny, tiny little pieces that even the vacuum doesn't want to pick up. But walls, well that's just a blank canvass ready to be covered with their art work! And happy birthday, a bit late. Actually I can't remember if I mentioned it on Facebook, but another happy wish never hurts, right?!
