So the Christmas season what. I am usually so prepared for this season and have 90% of gifts bought and the rest planned out. This year has really thrown me off course. From Jason being unemployed since April and difficulties in the family life and the play and regular life...need I go on, I'm just not even ready. I don't even have any great ideas. This was supposed to be our trip year. If any of you don't know what that is, we take Christmas trips every other year instead of gifts from Santa. There is just too much drama going on in the house to get that ready, plus we don't have the discount to Marriott as we have had in the past. It's frustrating not having any money to buy gifts for your family as I assume many of you are experiencing as well. My creative streak is not so creative. I'd be happy for any suggestions. Jason is still actively trying to sell insurance. He puts in so much time and has yet to make a sale which cash since it's commision only. We hope and pray and that is about all we can do. This is such a downer post, being sick doesn't help I suppose. It's hard to be optimistic when your body hurts and doesn't function properly and has a lack of energy. At least Jason keeps it going. Thank goodness for wonderful husbands.

  1. Hey Candee hang in there. Last year was horrible for us and soooo stressful. But it has made us realize how much we can deal with and has made our family a lot closer. We couldn't go on any trips so it was our "discover Arizona" year. It was fun and the kids loved it. And it was good for my spirit to enjoy the outdoors. I feel like everything happens for a reason and we don't always see the big picture. This year is better but we are still just getting started and the lawsuit with buffy was the icing on the cake. I thought now this after soo much crap! Anyways sorry for that rant.. You will get through this. It's tough thinking of gifts for boys. I think of anything I will let you know. I have posts like these too and I think it helps to get it out. Love you guys.
