All I want for Christmas is some extra sleep!

We are doing great. Really, we are! I am just very, very... very tired. Too much Christmas-ing, maybe? Too much being single mommy, maybe? Too much cheerleading to a boy with a cast and a fussy disposition? Too much redirecting-- and not always in a nice way--to five and seven year old boys who can't seem to stay on-task to save their life?

Probably all of it wrapped up in one. Oh well-- It's Beginning to look a Lot like Christmas... In Illinois, anyway :). Which is GOOD, because that is where we will be this year! So, I hope since we are to travel that way, my boys get to at least experience a sweet snow fall and some good old fashioned snowball fights! All while I sleep... because that is what I am SURE I am getting for Christmas ;).

Grace and Peace,

Surely you'll get some relief (and sleep) once you get to your relatives' house! Hoping you have a safe trip and get some rest before you leave!

Shari, I must confess that this is my first time visiting you site. I always mean to, once I get home, but somehow it never seemed to happen. Guess not getting to see you prompted me to check out pics of the kids. I can't believe how much they have grown! I hope that you have gotten some rest now (and additional rest after the flu epidemic). Wishing you a very blessed new year and that the days fly by until Tony's return. Love ya! Aunt Bette

Hoping you are much rested and praying for Tony's safe return! We were just able to visit with a friend that is doing a 2cnd tour and had been out 10 months so far ~ Wonderful!!! So can't wait for him to be home forever!
Just wanted to say hi!
love, jori
