busy, busy, busy

this week has been crazy. so much for my relaxing vacation! oh well. it is partly my own fault because i didn't finish my shopping and wrapping as early as i could have. here is what i did today: woke up, started laundry, wrapped presents, more laundry, vacuumed basement and stairs, had some coffee, made the bed, checked my email, watched some tv, had lunch, back to laundry, went to the gym, went to Target, dropped some donations off at the goodwill, came home, started dinner (turkey tacos), steve came over, continued to cook dinner, michelle and brett came over, ate dinner, made cocktails, conversation, played warioware smooth moves, played guitar hero, watched andy play ddr, said goodbye to everyone, cleaned up, finished wrapping presents, more laundry, tv, and blogging. whew!

i still have a lot of housework to do, but i guess it can wait until the weekend. hopefully the roads will be okay tomorrow and we will be able to get to my parent's house...i can't wait for everyone to open their gifts!

so bad at this...

i am not good at updating this blog...or any other blog i have ever had. i wish i had more to write about! thankfully i have twitter and facebook to remind me of what i have done.

cancer update - i had my 3 month checkup with the doctor last week and everything is still looking good. the doc wants me to keep my port in until may or june which is sort of a bummer. i was hoping to have it out by february or march. i guess it's not that much of a difference. he said that if the disease were to reappear it usually happens 6 to 9 months after the last chemo treatment. i definitely don't want to have another port put back in so i guess it's better to be cautious. my hair is also growing back. i wish it would grow faster, but at least i have something there now.

i have been very busy with holiday parties and activities. this is probably one of my most favorite times of the year and i am definitely making the most of it. we have lots of fluffy, white snow on the ground and it is cold, but not so cold that you want to die when you step outside. we did have one week of that stuff but thankfully it has warmed up to the 20's. i will enjoy it while it lasts.

i just finished putting the final stamp on our holiday cards. hopefully everyone will get them before Friday! we put save the date magnets in some of our cards (out of towners and whatnot), i guess we really are going to get married! exciting! i have been looking at dresses lately. that is the most urgent thing i need to accomplish at the moment.
i have this whole week off of work. awesome. merry christmas!
