Tonight is the night before Christmas Eve, and my parents house is quiet.  Since I have 2 days off work, I thought I would get in as much family time as possible.  But the house just doesn't feel the same......

It is super windy here again, and there is NO snow on the ground :)  

A brown Christmas is just fine with me, as I do not care for the snow at all.....  I do know that when I retire I will be a snow bird.  Warmer climates just call my name!!

There are some days (well, make that most days) when I wish I was back in Tequila or Guadalajara, Mexico.  I spent 2 weeks there last summer, and it was the best time of my life.  I have made some really good friends there, and being away from them all really sucks.  

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve, and my mom wants me to go do some very very last minute shopping with her....  What have I gotten myself into??  I just hope that we can get everything we need fast, and not have to fight too many crowds.  

Time to go.... my typing is driving my daddy nuts!!

Fresh Start

Its been a while since I last posted.... over 2 years!!  Wow!! 

I'm not sure what has prompted me to start this again, but here we go......

Life has been busy these past few months.  My sister, her husband and my two adorable nephews moved to Kelowna.... far far away!  Its been hard without having them here, and just popping by for a visit.  But, thank goodness there is a thing called Skype!!  At least I can see them, and talk to them that way!!

The Christmas Season is upon us, and it doesn't feel like Christmas.  Maybe, as my sister put it, its because the whole family is not together this year.  The first Christmas without all the family members.... its strange in a way.  As well, I am working on Christmas, Boxing day, New Years Eve day and New Years day..... so, that could be another reason, as I have no holiday days in there.  Kind of sucks, not gonna lie........

I am not sure where my head is at these days..... I know that my parents are planning on selling the house that I live in in the spring, and I don't know where I want to go, or what I want to do..... Any ideas????
