Life is getting busy - not that it wasn't already, but now it's really busy

So far December has been better. I got my root canal on Monday and my mouth already feels better, plus the dentist charged me $400 less than normal. I also received the go ahead to start practicing with my soccer team again. Good news all around,

Tonight I went to a parents meeting for my son's high school basketball team and we received his schedule for the next four months. Practice everyday for 2 hours, except on game days, which is once a week. Plus they're in six tournaments. We have one this weekend, and next.

I love basketball. I like playing it and I like watching it on TV (go Raptors), but I especially like watching my boys play. It brings me all kinds of joy. Now between my older sons games, my younger sons games, and my soccer games, it will be a busy winter. The thing is, I don't want to miss it. I want to be there for all of it, but I also know I need to find time to write.

So this post is actually a plea to my husband. Please buy me a laptop for Christmas and since my birthday and our anniversary are right after Christmas, you can consider it a combo gift.

A laptop would sure come in handy if you have so many things going on in your schedule. Besides, writing while a particular emotion is still high would make it so much easier to yield the kind of atmosphere you want to project.

Please, please buy Patti a laptop! A happy woman will be on your hands, and you will not regret it!

Praying for you Patti!

Mine is on the fritz right now. I sat in the doctor's office this morning, watching all the other women on theirs. It was very sad :(

I hope Santa (aka hubby) is nice to you this year!

I hope you get what you want. Of course, make sure there is a nice battery on it, or you'll always have to try to find the seat next to a plug.

That's a great combo gift! That's point from Tara too--make sure it has a good battery!

And woohooo for the "cheaper" dentist bill!

I love my laptop! I can take it anywhere with me and write at my convenience. I hope you get surprised this Christmas.

I cannot imagine life without a laptop. You should definitely get one!

I hope your husband gets you a laptop. And you even made things easy for him - instead of buying three different presents, he can just get one. He should appreciate that:)
