Christmas? Really??

First off, please accept my apologies for my absence. Between work, getting ready for baby and having some computer issues, things have piled up on me! EEK!

My work schedule has been rather crazy, although somewhat consistent. Basically my daily routine is wake up, go to work, come home, have dinner and go to bed. We work a later shift so it feels this way, anyway. However we are grateful to have jobs, so we're not going to complain that much. LOL Besides, lord only knows how much longer I will be working. Since I haven't been there even 3 months as of the due date (1/27, 3-month mark would be 2/2), I will only be eligible for unpaid disability leave, without job protection., unfortunately. I'm not going to stress too much about that; it is what it is at this point. If my job is handed off to someone else I will have six weeks to do a job search within the company and find something else without having to jump through too many new-hire hoops again (blech).

Enough about that front. I am exhausted today as we had a nasty turnaround (working til 8pm and having to be back by 7am!) and those always mess me up (even before I was preggo!). We expected to have chilly precip today with alot of wind, but who knew we'd get SNOW?? That's right- tons of tiny (and big & fat!) little SNOWFLAKES fell today, blanketing much of North Texas with a white dusting, and it's supposed to continue overnight! I'm trying to not get too excited, but a white Christmas would be awesome- no dreaming needed!

As for myself and Keith, we are getting ready to celebrate the last Christmas as we know it. Our last christmas as just the two of us; by this time next year we will (hopefully!) have beautiful Jessica Nicole getting into everything and us chasing her around the house and keeping her away from the tree. :P But let's not think about that now; we've got plenty of time til that happens. First, we need to meet her and enjoy those first several months, and I'm not about to rush that along- it's going to go fast enough as it is.  Her bedroom is coming along nicely, and her fur-sister enjoys it just as much as her mama. ;) We're already sitting at 35w 1d and will start weekly doc appointments, um, next week! Scary and exciting at the same time!

The photo frame will eventually hold a pic of miss JessyNicole. There is caption underneath that reads, "When I count my blessings, I count you twice." That just had Jessica's name written all over it!

Jessica's big-fur-sister checking things out. Eventually, somehow, we're gonna have to train her... EEK.

Jessica says "hi!" and wants to wish everyone a merry Christmas!!

Wow - you are getting so close to meeting Jessica! Have a very Merry Christmas and I hope that it is indeed a white one!

Thanks! Unbelievably enough our Christmas has been a white one! Of course (and as usual around here) it's melting off now but it was still awesome.

Hope you are having a very Merry Christmas yourself!
