I've been spending a lot of time lately just cleaning and organizing my house. I am trying to cut back on my smoking with the intention of quitting and realized that the busier I keep myself, physically, the less I smoke. The unintentional side effect of this is that I have not been on the computer as much.

In reality, I also have nothing to write about! LOL The boys have been fairly normal and Jenna has her normal life and very little excitement has been going on in my life! Steven's job is going fine and I am just trying to get through every day without tearing my hair out. I try to get things accomplished and still be a good mother to the kids..... it is a challenge. I am not quite sure how other Mothers do it.

Christmas is coming up fast! We are planning our Thanksgiving feast and can't wait for that. My mother and Mother in law will be coming for a week and it will be wonderful to see both of them. Maybe Steven and I will actually get a date night while they are here! We could certainly use a night off.

I am planning my CHristmas presents and baking and decorating. The kids are older this year, Braeden will really appreciate things this year. Mal is still too young but he will get excited because everyone else is!

I have a really cool advent calendar that my Mother gave me and I need to decide what I am putting in it. I know a lot of people do candy but I want something a little different. Any ideas?

I will post again soon with something a little more interesting, I hope! (ALthough boring in my life is like a vacation! LOL)

I can always live with a little boring going on in my life too. Please do not give up on quitting smoking. How about stickers or little plastic animals or cars? Love and hugs.

It's odd that every day life can appear to be boring, when in reality we're accomplishing a lot!

I hope that you are able to quit smoking. What a gift that would be to you and your children! I can tell you that asthma has taught what being unable to breathe is all about and it blows.

Be good to yourself!
