Whew, lots of work done on Julia's room! So glad she liked it, and that JJ's room was easier.

Been busy writing lately since the beginning of the month. I hit 25,000 words tonight! Woo hoo! Hopefully I have enough in this story to get the second half of the monthly goal. I think I know where to go with the plot, something I hadn't thought about before but would be a logical next step. If, when I'm editing, the story gets too big, I can split it up into two! :)

My computer tutoring gig was cancelled today because the pastor's wife was called to work (substitute teacher). I got the bathroom cleaned, made some applesauce and started my writing for the day. Made for a good use of time with the change of plans.

Reading is more fun than politics any day. ;) Good job with the long walks in the park!

I'm glad to see that everybody is doing well and keeping busy.  Time is going by quickly here.  I just realized that I need to buy the kid's Christmas outfits and start getting their Christmas pictures taken.  I need to order cards and a few things that will be given away as gifts.  Luckily, the outfits I want to buy are in a store that is offering 25% off this weekend.  :)

Yay for the sale! I love the idea of the cards, but I think I'm just too cheap to do it. ;) I'm not sure if we'll do a pre-Christmas photo session for the boys. It's hard to get them to cooperate, so it might be best to do our own pics at home.

I'll probably include photos from 2012 in my Christmas letter, or just make one or two pages at the end with such photos (whatever's easier to set up as I write it). I'll only be printing out two or three copies of the letter and the rest of the recipients get it by email, or a link via Facebook to a PDF I'll have on my website. I keep the cards going out to a small number so our postage cost is low. (Told you I was cheap, hee hee.)

I'm doing gifts in a jar for my family. It was a hit the year Ben was born, so I'm trying it again. Cake or cookies, not sure. Or maybe I'll mix it up. If my little sis stays in Vancouver for the holiday, I'll send her a bookstore gift card since she likes to read too. :)

I watched hubby clean the carpet today with the rented machine.  Watched hubby stain the deck today.  My eyes are tired from watching. lol

He knows my back has been hurting.  But it is getting better and I walked the trail at the park yesterday.  

Had 70's again today just like yesterday.  Tomorrow rain and turn cold by tomorrow night!

Dd worked all day at the dry cleaners.

We're going to my mom's for dinner and then come home and put the house back together.
