It's been so long since I updated this thing, I forgot my password.

My bad. I don't know if it's just that I've been busy. Or just lazy. Or some of both.

In the meantime, my oldest child is now certifiably a teenager, having turned 13 on November 22nd. She and her friend rang in their teen-ness with a dance. It sure wasn't like I remembered from junior high. We used to stand together in little girl and boy-only packs and start to dance an hour or two into the thing. These kids got out and danced from minute one and never stopped. I kept trying to sneak peeks at who my girl was dancing with without looking like I was doing so. I never did make out who was who. They all look the same in the dark. Anna had a great time though and I think it's something she'll always remember, which is what I'd hoped it would be.

Emma's having a birthday get-together tomorrow night at the Festival of Lights Xmas event here. It's going to be freezing cold, but I guess that goes with the theme, huh? Sucks for me though.

My Christmas shopping is almost done, and I'm going to keep how much money I spent on the down-low. Just doing my part to stimulate the economy down here, right?

Our tree is up, Xmas decorations in the yard and cards on the way. I think I'm actually ahead a little this year. Maybe after Emma's party, I can sit back and relax some.

This has been one boring post, but hey, at least I got back on the wagon.
