The Christmas Stretch!

Hello all! Today is another day off and it is starting on the very lazy side. :) Just like I like it. I'll be working Saturday and Sunday, and then I'm not sure about the week of Christmas, but I assume I'll work most of the week before the 3-4 day break. I'm VERY excited to see Kara & John, who will arrive late on the 21st.

I have received TWO Christmas presents so far and I am in Heaven! I know I wasn't supposed to, but I opened one present already. It was an ACCIDENT! I cut the package just a tiny, tiny bit to see if John & Leah had wrapped the gift inside, and instead I saw an AWESOME pair of earrings Leah made and I just couldn't help myself! (As a side note - J&L: I wore the purple shirt yesterday - it fits me perfectly! And I love love both sets of earrings! I've been wearing them nonstop, too! THANK YOU!)

Yesterday was the first real rain I saw in Tucson since the night I drove in. Ryan and I were running the stand by ourselves, as Laura and Randy were picking their youngest son up from the airport in Phoenix. Business was slow due to the cold weather, but watching the clouds move up and down the Catalina Mountains over and over was breathtaking. The rain continued into the night, so I got to listen to the beautiful sound of raindrops on my roof as I went to sleep. I didn't realize how long it'd been since I'd seen precipitation!

Today I might try out a new gym. Or I might not... :) I will definitely get further in a few books I'm reading and watch a few more Bones episodes (I'm addicted, at the moment). For the most part, I'm just waiting around for Christmas - but hey, at least we're on the home stretch!

I hope this finds you all well! Have a great day!


  1. If it is raining in Arizona the entire time I am there I am going to be VERY UPSET!!

  2. yay! i;m so glad it fit! it's a funny story... how you were blessed with that shirt. But, I'm so glad it fit! And the earring! John has a letter, but he is pretty slow about sending it off... all our love! tommorrow we can put you on skype if you would like to join FPPC at our place? YOu in? love you!

  3. We may even have a camera so we can teleconference.

  4. Hi there! Hmmm, well I don't have a webcam on my computer, so I'm not sure if the skype will work. I also have plans to try out a new Mexican restaurant for dinner. But I'll give one of you guys a call when I get back in (probably 8 or 9 your time) to see how things are going! :)
