Hello, Emily is home from school today because she is not feeling well. I don't think it's anything serious just a winter cold. She has been having a runny nose for a while but this morning she just seemed really tired and kept coughing. I think she may have had a fever too but I could not find the thermomemoter(sic) to take her temperature. So I decided it was better to be safe then sorry. SHe's watching TV right now and I just gave her pill (epilepsy) and some medicine for her cold. So I decided to write for a little while. The best thing for her is to probably rest anyway. We are doing pretty good with our shopping. We usually don't have this much done this early. We still have quite a bit to do but atleast it's better than usual. Yeah. Okay, I wanted this book called " An imcomplete Education" because I have always regretted the limited education I had. I want to feel like I have a mild knowledge on more subjects and events. so I asked for this book. I started reading it and it annoyed me from the get-go. Well first it is all about what you didn't learn in college, as if the only people who are concerned about learning more are people who went to college. It completely rubbed me the wrong way. Okay, so I didn't have the resources to go to college, that doesn't mean that I have no interest in bettering myself as a human being. I found it very insulting. I guess. Oh well, It annoyed me. But I'll still read the book. I hope!! Christmas time is so stressful. I've been trying not to be stressed becuase well I keep reminding myself that we are ahead of last year. Our Christmas tree was a total disaster. We usually have a fake tree, I like real trees better but they are such a pain. So we had this fake tree. When we went to put it up 3/4 of the lights would not work after multiple different attempts to get it too work and changing fuses and wires and such we gave up. We threw it to the curb just for our own sanity. SO we went out and bought a cheap replacement and when we got it home and put it up realized how shitty it looked so okay we went and returned it the next day. Then we decided okay we will go look for a better fake tree and realized that they are really EXPENSIVE so after poor Brian went to like 5 stores, he came to the decisions that we will just get a real tree this year and look after christmas when the fakes go on sale. I was thinking the same thing, so atleast we were on the same page. SO we went out on Sunday and bought a real tree. I decorated it on Sunday, Emily helped a little bit! But mostly I did it myself. Brian is not into decorating the tree at all. Oh well I am very critical of the tree every year. I stress and try so hard to make it perfect. It really isn't fun so this year I tried hard to just accept how it looked and I think it looks pretty. Yesterday I made a paper chain. I put it on the tree. It looks old fashion--- I like that. Anyway so we are "FINALLY" done decorating and I am VERY HAPPY about that. Yeah. Okay I"m tired of writting so I guess I'll stop. Happy HOlidays!! :)
