Tackle It Tuesday

It's Tuesday and I'm clean! Ok, I know that's random and that nobody really wants to know that I took a shower and now have nice, clean hair. On a not so happy note, today I'm reminded of just how fragile life is. My friend Dave lost his wife 6 months ago and his pain just tears at my heart. I know what it's like to lose someone that you thought you'd have a lifetime with and it's one of the hardest things to survive. I'm also so sorry to hear that Kath's mother has died. I never had the opportunity to meet her, but when I was in Canada, Kath gave me a blanket that her mom had crocheted. It's absolutely beautiful and I'm going to treasure it. I have it on my couch right now and will have to take a picture of it to show all of you.

Now, since it's Tuesday, I'm supposed to be tackling something, huh? Well, I think I'm going to work on finishing up my Christmas newsletter. It's something I can do sitting right here while I wait for a return phone call. It seems there was some sort of a mixup with Ben's insurance and I'm working on getting it sorted out again. We have an upcoming doctor's appointment to have him evaluated for hamstring lengthening surgery and we need to have all of his insurances in order before then.

So, that's my tackle. What are all of you tackling today? How are your holiday plans/preparations coming along? Let me know!

I need to get started on my holiday letter. Last year I never got around to it -- or much of anything holiday related -- so I need to make up for it this year.

Great tackle! We don't do a letter since nothing really exciting happens, but I hope that in the future I'll find things to write about and update our friends and family.

If you have a chance, please feel free to stop by and see my tackle!

Christmas letter! I'm impressed! I'd love to get ours done early this year...

I gave up on Christmas letters a few years ago. It seemed by the time I got them done it was March. Nice to see that you're on tip of it. I'll live vicariously through yours.
