It's a fabulous post #101!

Or not. I can't believe I have posted on here over 100 times! Crazy.

Anyways, sorry for the absence. I am a sucky blogger. My laptop broke. :( I am going to have a hard time updating for awhile since Mike is a computer hog.

A few quick updates -

Pregnancy:
Going well. I think just about everyone knows now. I finally got in touch with my grandmother and let her know. (Very strange story. I'll have to fill you guys in on that one soon.) She's very excited for Great-Grandchild #11. Yes - 11!

Life:
It's going. Things just keep breaking down though. Mike and I are down to one car. His truck went kaput and we just don't have the money to take it in right now. Also, as previously stated, my laptop is being a pain as well. It won't load up. I'm in such a bah humbuggy mood that out house isn't even decorated for Christmas. And every day that it's not decorated makes me even less motivated to do it. Arg!
Mike and I went to The Magical Forest this week to try to get some spirit going. It was beautiful as always but neither one of us was really feeling it.

Work:
School winter break starts this weekend. Hooray! Conferences are this week. No kids on Wednesday and very few conferences scheduled. So, here's to getting things done for when we come back from break.
Mike finally had his annual review. They agreed to give him a raise (THANK GOD) and hopefully he'll be a little happier at work now. He was feeling really underappreciated and was able to get out a few of his issues at the meeting. He said last week was a much better feeling time to be there.

I hope all is well with all of you. I'm sorry I haven't been keeping up with blogs. ((hugs)) to all who need them and HOORAYS! to those who need those, too!

Sorry about your laptop and the truck... all that frustration definitely don't help the Christmas spirit. At least you don't have to work on hiding your pregnancy anymore so hopefully its a relieve.

Yay for his raise!!!! Good for him =)

congrats to Mike on the raise! I'm fearing a wage freeze come my annual review time in January/February. Wouldn't that suck?

Here's a little Christmas spirit for you - this time next year, you'll be festively decorating with your son/daughter and over buying every toy at Toys R Us as any new parent should. :)

Congrats on the raise for Mike and for winter break for you, and Merry Christmas dammit. ;) I have a little too much Holiday Spirit over here, so I am hoping it will rub off on you.

The site isn't always safe for work so I recommend waiting until you can pry Mike off the PC.
