Stuff from Stephers

I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.

Fa la la la la

I feel so out of it this year. I'd like to start by partially blaming my work schedule. It doesn't make it easy to do much more than sleep and get things done that are absolutely necessary. I feel like I've been a horrible friend. I haven't gotten together with anyone. I haven't sent out cards. I barely even finished shopping. I have to go into work tonight and work over Christmas. Saturday I am going home to do a family Christmas and then it's back to work. The other day I just started crying because I'm so stressed out. One of our kids got to go home which is great but just reminds me of all of the kids that are gone. This is a tough's like practice losing people over and over again. Anyhow, I look forward to spending some NYE time with my friends and then I appreciate everyone's help in not asking me to go out to eat bad foods because I have some serious weight to lose. I'm not just saying that...I've gained everything back I ever had which is depressing and I need to do something about it. Not that there's much I can do while at work, but at home I definitely can. In other news...Sara had baby Benjamin who is a healthy little dark haired blue eyed treasure. I can't wait to meet him!!

Time Flies

I can't believe it is already almost Christmas!! Luckily, or unluckily, I am working on Christmas so I guess that gives me a few extra days to get gifts together. Unfortunately my schedule is crazy enough that I don't really have much time to figure out what to get for people. So, what have I been up to? Mostly work. Last night was Adam's company Christmas party and that was fun. Last week I made a vegetable pot pie and it was delicious. The recipe is from and is super simple. Try it out!
