I have to apologize to all my lovely readers for not blogging regularly the last few days. I have gotten in a post or two, but seems like I just haven't been able to a couple of times and I really miss you guys! It started off with 15 hours in the Hospital the day before Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving day was filled with DH working 12 hours, I cleaned the ENTIRE house (four bedrooms, two baths, kitchen, dining room, living room and laundry room), and then spent a short evening with DH and Mika my 2 year old eating turkey and watching a movie.
Yesterday I was STILL catching up on everything I hadn't gotten done the day before Thanksgiving and then I found out my parents were only 1.5 hours away so we spontaneously grabbed the 2 dogs and packed to go spend the day. It was really great. Matthew cooked his homemade spaghetti, we all sat and socialized while Mika played with his "bi-kickle" Grandpa brought him and we finally got home at midnight last night.
Today we had to do some shopping in Town and then I am helping Matt put up a LOT of meat. We try to put up several deer every year because it is such a lean red meat-even my husband's doctor said it is much better than beef and due to all the unexpected things, we have to cut this up NOW so I can pressure can it tomorrow for 2 hours.
I promise to write to you lovelies tomorrow morning before I drive six hours to get my three oldest children who are spending Thanksgiving with their Father and his parents. Ahhhh I love the Holidays, they are busy, fun, all sorts of unexpected things pop up, but I wouldn't change it for the world! Despite a week full of doctor's appointments, I have some great things planned for next week, so stay tuned!
