Let me start by saying we had a mighty fine Christmas. Although, I will have to admit that it is becoming my not-so-favorite holiday. It just doesn't seem right to have to rush around, stress out, feel guilty, and everything else over one of the most important holidays. This year we decided we were going to cut back, try not to spend as much and not buy for as many as well, in other words we cut out the neighbors. Oh my gosh, but the guilt I felt when those neighbors brought over gifts for us and I had nothing to give them. They must think we're terrible neighbors now, they'll probably egg our house or something, or what if they tee-pee our house?
What we did cut back on on others, Jordan made up for and although Santa struck out on the only think he asked for, a Blues Clues Thinking Chair, he seemed pretty happy at the end of the day with his Handy Dandy Notebook, Buzz Lightyear, Racetrack, VSmile, Movies, and all the other toys that has kept him entertained over the past week. Wow, I never realize how easy it is to spoil a kid.
Next year I plan to be a little more smart and take a couple of days before Christmas off in order to get it all done, especially since next year we'll have two kids to buy for. Although, these days off have been quite relaxing, and my house has stayed clean for a week straight, that's a first. Jordan has also enjoyed sleeping in 'til 8:30 and lounging around in his p.j.'s throughout the afternoon. We also did some shopping, baking and we had 'too much fun' at the Maine Discovery Museum.
And one thing I do have to admit to that I did way to much of on my vacation was....eat food. And no I haven't had any weird cravings yet, unless you call whatever is put in front of me a craving. Especially when it's my mother in law's peanut butter fudge. Mmmmmm!
I do have a question though? Did you ever crave the stuff that you're not suppose to have while pregnant? Like coffee, and I know it would probably be fine for me to have a small cup here or there, but I don't want to get myself in the habit, so instead I just sip Darric's. And can I just say that the cheap price on my all time favorite food, lobster, is not helping me not crave that.
Now I know that usually you start showing sooner with your second pregnancy, but I can't tell if I should be calling this my baby bump or my fudge bump, whattya think?
Oh and before I forget...Happy New Year!
