December was a little nutty.  Hence the vacation from my blog.  I didn't actually intend on taking a blog-cation, but that's just what happened.

The beginning of December was crazy as I finished up the semester at YCCC.  There was so much homework in all of my classes it just seemed like it was a constant uphill battle to get it all done.  But I did.  And I'm happy to say I had A's in all of my classes.  A 4.0 GPA is a pretty sweet way to start off this degree!

Once school and finals were over, Christmas started in full swing!  We took Ben on the Polar Express, went north to visit his grandparents and went to a family Christmas party.  There was shopping, wrapping, cooking and hanging out with family.  It was a lot of fun, but it also kept me quite busy!

Now it's over.  And my house looks like a toy store exploded.  There are currently four separate race tracks set up in my living room, in addition to a train/car table and a medieval castle.  How no one has tripped and broken an ankle is beyond me.  Tomorrow's goals will be to get rid of the Christmas tree so we can find spots for all these toys...just in time for January to get here with Ben's third birthday.  It's never ending....

January also brings boatloads of work.  1099s and year end stuff will all need to be done for my bookkeeping job in addition to my two usual jobs.  Fortunately I have a few weeks before school starts again, and then it's back to business with Accounting II. 

In the mean time, I'm going to enjoy the last couple of days of 2012 and relax and play with my kid.  We've got enough toys to keep us busy indoors and plenty of snow to have fun outdoors!!
