Well for all of you who would rather receive a Christmas card, I'm sorry, I'm too lazy for that. This is what you're getting.
I've already received one Christmas present, on accident. I got home from scouts one evening to see a nice big Brother box on the porch which Jake hadn't noticed and hidden. Amazon had shipped my new laser printer (yay!) in its original box (boo!). It's really nice. Prints faster than our old one and hooks directly to the network so we don't have to leave the computer on to be able to print. Whee! Technology!
We're going to one of our resorts in Bear Lake for actual Christmas this year. I've already put a plethora of Christmas music on a CD for the long drive and I'm so excited!
Jake should be getting a double raise and some back pay this Friday so we'll have enough money for the holidays. Overall I'm just plain excited. I love Christmas. I wish I could spend it with my family but we'll have to just save up to be able to do that next year. I wonder how that will work with foster kids? I don't know, I guess I'll have to ask at our class next month!
Three things to update you on news-wise: 1) We've almost completed the process for fostering. We have to take a class next month (like 30 hours of class) and my mom is coming next month to help get the house ready and then we'll be done! I hope to have a kid or 2 in the house by February. 2) I've been working a lot on my book. It's getting better, if you ask me. Silly anxiety. Why did I ever listen to you? Anyway, if you are interested in reading it, let me know and I will e-mail you a copy! I could always use more input! 3) I'm back in counseling, which is helping with the writing and getting the house ready. It's hard work though. Stupid depression.
Otherwise, I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas! See you around!
