Well, sort of anyway! LOL!! Moving my Mom was a bit more complicated than I expected. We brought her down on the Sunday after Thanksgiving and then moved her into her new apartment in the assisted living portion of Lutheran Homes Monday evening. Tuesday morning she had an appointment with her new wound Dr. He immediately put her in the hospital. Geez...Welcome to Muscatine!

Anyway, she stayed in the hospital until Thursday and is now in the Nursing Home portion of Lutheran Homes. Needless to say, I've been spending way more time with my Mom's situation than I expected. The plan is to get her into her apartment by the end of the month. I am hoping, praying, and providing as much support as I can to motivate her to do what she needs to do to get into the apartment. Otherwise, it looks like the Nursing Home will be her new home.

I am finally working on my calendars! Yeah...scrapping. I have not scrapped since the end of September. I'm definitely going through withdrawal. I haven't been on a message board, walked into a store, or even blogs. I LOVE having my Mom close by, but it is like I now have a third kid. I need to work on balance again. The schedule has just been too crazy. But, I can see the more gymnastics competitions until next fall. Cheer competitions will be done in January and we won't be continuing that sport. And Christmas busy-ness is almost over.

I never thought I'd get to the point were I actually need to schedule time for me, but I really need to look at this in the new year. Maybe even create some scrappy goals to motivate me.

Tomorrow I'll put up my January mock-up up. I try to keep the calendars simple (I am making 6). But somehow...I always manage to make them a little more complicated. Oh well.
