Catching Up.

A lot has been going on over the past couple of weeks and I don't even know where to begin! We had company for Thanksgiving, they left, we went back to our regular scheduled programming and now it's already December 7 and I can't figure out why the heck time is going by so fast?

This year was our "1st Thanksgiving" as hosts. It was fabulous. I was really pleased with our turkey, all of the side dishes I made and the good company that surrounded us. Everyone seemed to enjoy the afternoon/evening and all in all it was a success! The only thing missing was Joey. He was in Florida with his dad and grandparents for the holiday weekend. He had fun, however, got a little too spoiled. Ugh. Nothing I can do about that except show him how much we love him and let him know that it's not ok to eat chocolate everyday and not brush your teeth. (but we won't talk about all of that....)

Joey had his first band concert for 5th grade on December 1. It was so cute! Brought back so many of my GOOD memories of being in band as I grew up. It was always so much fun and I will never forget some of the friends I made and the lessons I learned. I still remember my band teacher Mrs. Snyder. She was a hoot!

This past weekend was so great. Joey and I went to the movies on Friday night for a Momma-son date to see "The Christmas Carol". It was cute. Same story, obivoulsy, but the 3D animation was a lot of fun! Jim Carrey is always a pleasure to watch in movies as well. His humor always gets me laughing. Saturday morning Joey had his last soccer game of the season. So happy that is over. I think he was getting a little burnt out by the whole thing, not to mention I was a little burnt out by a certain mom. (again, something we won't discuss here). After Joey's soccer game we went to Chander Subaru to meet...... Travis Pastrana!!!!!!!!!!!!! When Paul's cousin Stacie told me he was going to be there for the day signing autographs I instantly knew I had to be there! I LOVE HIM and have always wanted to meet him. The best part was that he 100% lived up to my expectations. He was so charming and nice, down to earth, sociable and not stuck up like so many of the other "celebrities". Joey was really stoked to meet him as well, as he is one of his idols. I think Joey (& I) would give ANYTHING to just hang out and ride with him for a day. After spending the afternoon hanging out with him we went home to get ready for the Phoenix Suns vs Sacramento Kings BBall game. Something else I had been looking forward to for quite some time. When we lived in California, Paul and his brother had season tickets to the games so we went to quite a few. I really have missed basketball games and was so happy to go! It was def a different feeling though being almost the only Kings fan at US AIWAYS Center. It's ok, we still cheered them on (& they lost).

Aside from my daily schedule I have a lot going on in my mind and my heart. Trying to sort life out and take it one day at a time. I'm enjoying it as I go and am trying to make a difference. The answers will come to me, I just know it.
