School is over!!!!!!!!!! It's been over but I've been so incredibly busy trying to get things done around the house and get ready for Christmas. Friday both Hayden & I had to go to the doctor. I was still having a ton of sinus pressure (even though I had finished my antibiotics a week prior) but the sinus infection had cleared I just had a lot of swelling still (which wasn't surprising seeings how she couldn't see the infection when I was diagnosed because I was so swollen! So another prescription for me-this time a nasal spray to decrease the swelling. CJ had to go to the doctor Thursday for a sinus infection. I thought Hayden had one but when we went to the doctor Friday he said it's just a bad cold (the same one we've been passing around since Halloween). Thankfully Hayden is starting to feel better. Of course my plan for Friday had been to get the rest of my Christmas shopping done. With Hayd with me that obviously didn't happen. I did get quite a bit done with him and even got some things for him :-)

Plan for today is drop the boys off at school & head straight to the mall that I don't normally go to. I need to go to Lush to get some things for my mom-we tried to go Friday & spent 45 minutes looking for a parking spot & finally I gave up!! I figure if I get there right when it opens it shouldn't be too bad. I also need to pick up a few things from Target & the grocery store, & swing by the post office to mail off a couple of swap packages (so sorry they are late ladies!!!) Finals last week kicked my butt & basically NOTHING got done around the house!! I got the big tree downstairs decorated yesterday and Hayden's little tree done as well. So today I need to get the upstairs tree done & move all of the storage containers into the bonus room so they are out of my hallway!!

I am hoping to get my knee surgery scheduled today. We are still hoping it can be done next Friday the 28th which means I need to get my house cleaned this week & make some freezer meals plus wrap presents. CJ is going to have a lot on his plate for a couple of weeks. Plus his next blood patch is January 9th-hopefully this one goes as well as the first one with NO SURPRISES!!

I cannot believe Christmas is in 8 days and that it is almost the New Year. I feel like 2012 flew by so quickly. I hope that 2013 is a much better year for us with less sickness and no health surprises. We know we are going to deal with CJ's health issues for the rest of his life so now hopefully we can manage it without him having to take months off of work!!!

I ran into a family last night that I grew up with. I hadn't seen the mom in probably 8-10 years and the boys I hadn't seen in at least 6. It was so good to catch up with them after so long! They have recently gotten back into bowling so they are going to help out my team while I'm out recovering from my surgery.

I hope everyone has a great day!!!
