All Alone...

and LOVING IT!! No offense to my family but it was so nice having a quiet home this weekend. I brought up all the Halloween/Fall decorations from the basement and started prepping my house for the upcoming ghoulish holiday. Yes, I know it's a tad bit early but we leave for Disney in 12 days and when we get back it will almost be October. I figured that it would be good to come home from Disney and the house already be decorated. Our last day at the World will be spent at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party so it will be great to come home to our Halloween inspired home after that.

I also brought up the Christmas wrap so that I can get all of our gifts wrapped up. Since the boys are gone, it is much easier to get this done because I don't have to worry about them seeing anything. ;) I also got my Christmas cards ready to go a few days ago. If I didn't stay on top of these things early I would surely go nutso in December.

Bad news/prayer request...
I got a phone call on Thursday about my Father. He unexpectedly got laid off from his job and now he is terribly upset. Please say a prayer for him that he will find another one soon. My Mom is a housewife so he is the breadwinner. I feel so bad because he actually liked his job and took pride in his work. Life can be so unfair sometimes. :(

Oh Brandy, so sorry to hear about your dad's job. How awful! I can't believe you've finished Christmas cards and are ready to wrap presents. Every year you just amaze me! :D

Christmas Cards and wrapping gifts...in Septemeber? Oh that's just unnatural, LOL! Good for you!

Sorry to learn about your Dad losing his job. It seems that kind of thing is going around. We will keep him in our prayes and hopes that he finds employment soon.
