Life is always hard, for the belle of the boulevard.

Wow, I haven't posted in weeks.

Been busy getting ready for Christmas. We are working extra hours to be able to afford gifts (for each other and our families). I am anxiously waiting for my mom to arrive - in less then four weeks. I haven't seen her since March, and I miss her like crazy.

I really hope the next three weeks fly by, but I'm not sure that they will. I have to work alot, and I've been sick and exhausted and I don't feel like working, at all. At least I'll have almost a week off, when my mom's here for Christmas!

We bought a new 7 foot fake tree, and decorated it last week. It looks great, especially compared to our old, apartment-sized tree, which missing branches and such. I used to be one of those people who didn't like decorating for Christmas until December arrived - but now I like it get the tree up early and we have even already started wrapping gifts and putting them under the tree. After all, there's less than a month til Christmas!

Is this how a toy feels when its batteries run dry?

Today I'm feeling... heavy-hearted. A friend of mine - that I met on a message board for brides getting married in August 2009 - is going through a really hard time right now. It's not my place to tell the details here, but I am still very sad for her and her family. I'm not really one to pray, but if you do, please keep her in your prayers in this very trying time. Emily, you are in my thoughts everyday - I know you have the strength to keep your head up and get through this. Your angels were (and still are) very loved and we will never forget them.
