Today I headed off to work in the AM, working a half shift. Boy do those go by fast! I gave almost half of my hours away this to my co-worker and friend (last week was supposed to be her last week) so I've had my afternoons completely free. I've definitely been using the time, shopping, shopping, and shopping. I am in and out and on with it all. I have decided if I'm not 100% by the end of the day friday, that is it. Nothing else is going to be bought and given. Next week will be work and Christmas oriented. Christmas dinner shopping, cookie baking, and spending time with family. No more going out to the stores!
Today my brother came home from Seattle and is going to be home for the next couple of weeks at least. He was funny because he was asking about slow cooker recipes (mom and dad got him a crock pot for his birthday) and he has been using it a lot, which is great.
Other than that Jesse hasn't had a lot of new things happening to him -- he has had plenty of adventures though -- I will post photos of those sometime here soon. Other than that he has pretty relaxed days (it seems that way at least) and sees a friend from ROTC he knows every so often. Just don't talk to him when it's really late there. He's a little cranky!
Other than that, things are good. Tomorrow is Thursday and it's almost a week until Christmas. I know that next week should be one of the most interesting....
