holiday parties and stomach cramp hell

Friday - We had our soccer Christmas party. I was the DD for Chad and my parents. I cannot even begin to tell you how annoying my soccer team is - ha ha. Love each of them to death but trying to get them to get organized for the gift exchange game was pure hell. Finally got it all together and I shared some lotions, body wash, etc. gifts with Gillian - we split ours in two so we got the best of both worlds. Chad and Rob drank together so Alli took them home while I drove my mom, Jim and Gillian home. Chad fell asleep on top of me snoring. Good times :)

Saturday - Finished our Christmas shopping! Woohoo! Then home to watch Alvin and the Chipmunks and a nap. Back out to Chad's parent's house for their tree trimming party. Super fun.

Sunday - Up at 2 am with the worst stomach cramps of my life. In the bathroom from 2 am to 10 am and thought that death was coming for me. Must have eaten something that did not agree with me. Tried to sleep for a few hours but Chad and Lexxus would not leave me alone. Met my parent's at the house that we are wanting to buy and looked around. I am still in love. To Chad's parent's place for Chad to shovel the driveway and home to finish my file work that I do on the side. Watched some Christmas specials including Smurfs, Garfield AND He-Man/She-Ra and in bed by 8:30. Still having stomach pains today but only when I eat :(

chad's away so jay will ... get down to business!

friday ... Chad was in Kelowna for the weekend visiting friends, drinking and I guess snowboarding :) I got off early on Friday and went and picked up Lexxus from his parent's house - it was for sure going to be a girls only weekend! Went home and made hashbrowns and a sandwich (good old Jay "single days" food). Made a rum and coke and got down to business. Finished a jewelry project I was working on, started working on Christmas cards for a client of mine and finished my Christmas wrapping. In there I watched the new Muppets "Letters to Santa" movie and then Lexxus and I snuggled in for a long winters nap :)
saturday ... Slept in until 9 am!! WOOHOO! Did some running around and then went to the gym. Home for more Christmas cards and then off to my parent's for Chinese food and tree decorating - only I got distracted by looking at old photos so the tree is still not up nor decorated.

sunday ... Another 9 am - woohoo x 2! Off to the gym (game cancelled due to frozen field conditions) and then home for lunch, a nap and more Christmas Cards. Chad came home around 5 and we took the kid (aka Lexxus) home. Grabbed some grub and settled in to watch "A Christmas Story" - a perfect start to the holiday season :)
