I'm ALMOST done my Christmas shopping!

First off, thanks to all of you who gave suggestions for how to deal with Emily's nighttime fears. We're still having a rough time in that she's still getting up in the middle of the night and wanting to come in bed with us. I'm taking two weeks off of work over the holidays, so that might be a good time to put some new strategies in place without worrying too much about the consequences of added sleep deprivation! Will keep you posted.

Before I forget, Amy and Tom, how can I access your blogs? When I clicked on your names, I couldn't get in and your old links don't work anymore.

OK, now on to the Christmas stuff. How is everybody doing in the shopping department? I have Tuesdays off of work, so I hit the mall with Emily today hoping to get the last of my shopping done. I almost did, but I still have a couple of small things left to find. I am one of those people that is always shopping during the last week before Christmas. Every year, I keep telling myself that I'll try to have the shopping done by mid-December, but nooooooo, of course I wasn't able to. Same thing with getting my Christmas cards written and sent out. I always mean to do them early too, but here it is December 19, and they only went out today. Most years it's because I procrastinate, but this year, it was more because there were just too many other things that HAD to be done school, work, and family-wise before I could even start thinking about Christmas. So mark my words, NEXT year will be the year I get it all done early. Is that a "YA, RIGHT JULIE!" I hear you saying? :)

As promised, here are a couple of pics so you can see the new do.

BTW, I've officially been a blogger for over a year now!! Thanks to all of my wonderful blends for all your support!
