Sick...exhausted...overwhelmed...and soooooo looking forward to 3:35 PM today!

Before I get into where I've been...I wanted to share another great blog giveaway going on! 

Alma is trying to reach 300 followers and with a little help from her blogging friends it shouldn't take her long!  As a "thank you", Alma is giving away a Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake Art Cricut cartridge on her blog.  Be sure to stop by Alma's blog and leave a comment for a chance to win!  Good luck!

Okay, so....I feel like I've been hauling this cold around for weeks now.  I haven't been sleeping well at all (not that I ever really do!) because every time I lay down the coughing takes over.  Things at the boys school have been crazy busy and I really don't see things letting up until our Christmas break begins.  Just finished parent teacher conferences last night where we (the PTO) was in charge of dinner for all the teachers both nights and had our many tables set up including our Giving Tree and can food drive along with selling our school Spirit Wear and Gold Fish crackers to help support our newest endeavor to bring a salt water Touch Tank to our school for our kids!  Now it is into high gear to get organized and planning and purchasing for our Santa Breakfast and Christmas party and assembly for the entire school.  I love being able to be so involved at the school, but there are times that I feel like I'm there as much...if not more than the teachers! lol  I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to today at 3:35 PM when we walk out of the school for FIVE DAYS!!!!!  I even cancelled our plans to go up north to be with the rest of our family. We've never stayed home for Thanksgiving, but I just felt that some much needed down time was in order for us.  Not to mention the fact that my house looks like a bomb exploded in it!  Things have been a little neglected lately.

So...plans are to do a little housework tomorrow and make a path to the kitchen so I can at least make my family a turkey on Thursday!  :)  Seeing Tangled (the new Disney movie) is at the top of our list for tomorrow as well!  I have a few pictures of recent creations trapped inside my camera that need to come out...and of course...BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING!!!!!  I have some Wal-Mart gift cards that I received for my birthday burning a hole in my wallet...screaming to be spent on some Cricut Lite cartridges!!!!  :)  Need to help Parker finish a 3 part book report and most importantly....have some down time to just enjoy my kids and my husband and not have a calendar of scheduled events setting off alarms on my phone every 5 minutes!  What are your plans for the Thanksgiving holiday?  I hope you all have safe travels if you are venturing out and enjoy your family and friends.  I am thankful for each and every one of you!

Yes the holidays can be very overwhelming and so can the demands of extended family. So for the sake of one's health and sanity, it's okay to say "no" from time to time. Taking care of yourself should be a priority right now. Because as all moms know, we are on call 24/7 and when we go down, the family does too. Moms need to get rest and stay healthy to keep the family going. So, Melissa, please take care of yourself and I hope you & your boys enjoy the weekend. :)
