Confession Friday

I confess that last weekend was AMAZING!!!  Our room had a gigantic hot tub.  I was able to soak in the tub for hours while watching a movie.  Luxury.  I even spent about 10 minutes with my feet on the jets and afterwards they were humming in pleasure.  We each had a margarita at Margaritaville and shared some wings.  My drink was called License to Chill and it was deeee-lish.  It came in a glass that was huge.  Good thing we were just across the street from our hotel by this time and no longer needed to drive.  We had stopped earlier at the outlet stores and I bought 2 pairs of Nine West shoes for less then the price of 1 pair at home.  I need new shoes to go back to work since the heels I was wearing have cracked soles.  We also went in the Coach store and Brian bought me a lovely bag for our anniversary and Brian picked up my xmas gift from Addis there as well.  We ate dinner at East Side Marios.  On Sunday we crossed the border and went to the Buffalo Bills/Tennesee Titans football game.  We had a great time.  Our seats were sooo close.  We were 20 rows off the field.  Brian and I have never sat that close to the field.  The game was good and the people watching was a lot of fun too.  We saw a lot of people get thrown out of the stadium by the yellow jackets.  We lucked out with the weather.  We came prepared for cold weather but it ended up being warm enough that we were comfortable in our jackets and even had to take off our hats and mitts.

I confess that we only have one holiday party to attend this year.  I'm really looking forward to it.  We are getting together with two other adoptive families.  I can't wait to see the new photos one of the families has of their son and I'm excited to meet the other family"s little girl.  I'm so very grateful to have these friends.

I confess that we finished our family holiday card this week.  It was a more difficult project than I expected but I'm very pleased with the finished product.  Some have been sent out in the mail, I'm still collecting some addresses and some will be hand delivered.

I confess that we did our second post placement report this week.  It was nice to be able to get that out of the way before the holidays.  We were able to show off our new house to our practioner.  More importantly we were able to brag about all of Addis's accomplishments.

I confess that I only have 1 Christmas gift left to buy.  I'm behind on my Christmas shopping this year.  I'm one of those sick people who likes to have everything bought, wrapped and under the tree by December 1st.

I confess that today's paper had a schedule of all the holiday specials on tv and I immediately ripped it out and sat down with a highlighter and have marked all the ones we want to watch.  It's now sitting on the side table in our family room so we don't miss any of them.  I can't wait to see some of my favourites.  The Grinch, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Charlie Brown Christmas, Frosty.  It was however missing my very favourite holiday special.  The Disney Christmas Parade.  It's always on the morning of December 25th.  I always tape it and watch it later that afternoon once the turkey is in the oven.

I confess that I bought myself a little present this week.  I picked up a copy of the movie The Help.  I loved the book and can hardly wait to see the movie.

I confess that I was sick again this week.  Is my immune system ever going to be strong again?  I swear Addis is a little germ factory.  Luckily he's only a carrier and of the 7 times I've been sick since May, he's only been sick 2 times.  I'm definitely over being sick all the time.  I'm not joking, it's a once a month thing.  Enough already!!!
