A Very Zombie Christmas Update

Merry Christmas Eve to those of you who celebrate!  I'm up later than I should be because I have A LOT to do tomorrow because as you can imagine I'm a last minute shopper.  I miss my blog so I decided to make a post and update a little bit. 

We moved back to civilization.  I couldn't take living in a house so close to my Mother-in-Law, and quite frankly Justin couldn't handle it either.  We were trying to help our friend Jon get visitation with his son, who just happens to be our nephew and Justins sisters son as well.  His Mother flipped out about that, even though Justins Sister - the mother of the child - was okay with it.  She ended up making our lives a living hell so we had to move back.  I may go into more detail later on this, but I'm in a good mood and I don't want to talk about it right now.  As you can probably all imagine she's quite the mood dampener with her childish antics.

We're not quite settled back in yet, and we have yet to get the Christmas Tree up here yet.  That's on top of my very long to do list for tomorrow.  We've been back since last Saturday, so it's been almost a week.  Things with my Daddy have actually been going amazingly well.  Our relationship has improves a hundred fold, actually.  So I'm enjoying that quite a bit.

Some of you may remember the rash or bumps that Jagger broke out with a while back.  If not then you can scroll down to see the photo.  Well it wouldn't go away even after we finished his round of antibiotics and his bronchitis cleared up.  I kept using the cream for about 2 or 3 weeks, and it would still come and go.  I took him back to the doctor and it turns out that it is eczema.  Aiden had infantile eczema, but it was never bumps.  His was always just rough patches of itchy abnormally dry skin.  So I never suspected eczema, but that's what he's been diagnosed with.  We are using a new cream now and if it doesn't improve then we will get a referral to a dermatologist and have him seen there.

After the Holidays Justin has decided to enlist in the National Guard.  So he's looking forward to that, but I'm not because I will miss him terribly while he is gone.  It's a move in the right direction we believe though.  I don't know much about the National Guard, so I'm going to have to start doing some research.

Aiden is excited for Christmas this year for the first time really.  He was excited last year, but this year he just seems to get it more I suppose.  So it's really made the Holiday season more magical for us.  Jagger obviously doesn't know what's going on really, but he loves the tree and all the lights.

I will be back in full force after the Holidays are over and everything gets settled a bit more.  I can't wait to get back to blogging because I've really missed it.  I never realized how truly addictive it was until I had to take a break because of all the stress, drama and family weirdness here recently!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas & enjoy the time spent with your families!

What have you all been up too during the hectic Holiday season this year?

Too bad living in Brenton didn't work out...but I'm glad you're back :)

We need to hang out soon...I haven't had a chance to talk to you for a while, but mom is really sick right now and 4 different doctors are trying to figure out whats wrong with her :( I'll tell you more about it next time we talk.

I have to work Christmas Eve, Christmas day, and New Years Eve. Yay me.

All I can tell you on the National Guard thing is to drop in at one of those recruiting offices in Beckley next time you're up there...I'm sure they'll tell you anything you want to know. You can probably go to the NG website and request that a recruiter contact you so you can talk to them.

Have a good Christmas :)

We live directly next door to my husband's sister and her family. We moved here about 9 years ago, a couple of years ago there was a foreclosure next door, they put in an offer and the rest is history. At first, we thought it would be fun, but not so much. I feel smothered most days. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

I hope you've had a great holiday! I didn't even get a tree or any decorations up...was sick, and passed the time by watching tv and working. Just not into it at all this year, though we did have a good one and it was a nice break from the norm.

Here's to a great 2011!
