I feel like it was just Thanksgiving and now the kids only have two weeks of school until Christmas break. I need to remember that I'm in charge of getting the goody bags for the kindergarten class holiday party and I am pretty sure I remember Gray mentioning that he signed me up for something in his class. I should probably look into that. We're sneaking in shopping for gifts (instead of us buying all the kids' gifts we're letting them buy for each other... with our money. It's been fun so far, but this means four separate trips over a very tight schedule.)
This weekend Ivy had long dress rehearsals for The Nutcracker and next weekend she has four performances. Of course I'll be helping at three of them and in the audience watching one.
Tomorrow Noah starts his prep for another procedure up in Seattle this week. This is kind of my way of sharing that he's been diagnosed with Crohn's Disease and so, that's one big thing we've been battling and is basically where my head is 24/7 right now.
I remembered that the pets were out of food so Buddy and the gerbils just got a dinner of really good granola from the bakery and what was left in the bottom of a box of Cheez-its. They don't seem to be complaining. I'll go to the store tomorrow.
