Well it's finally September. All the kids are getting ready to enter school again. The summer went by really quickly and pretty soon it'll be 2009 already. It's scary how fast time has been flying. I mean I don't even remember much of what I did during the summer. We will soon enter the holiday season and be spending money on presents and candy and food and so many things. But since the economy isn't that good right now I doubt that we will be spending too much money. Right? I know that this year I will not buy too many things. I'll just have to buy the necessities. I'll probably start buying Christmas presents now. Little by little so that by Christmas time I won't be rushing at the last minute to find a present. So before that we have Halloween in October. Thanksgiving in November and Christmas in December. I already bought some candy for Halloween but unfortunately I already ate them and then went to buy some more. I'm addict but I'm trying to get better ^_^ What do you guys think about how fast summer finished? And what do you think of this holiday season? Will you spend more or less than last year?

That's what I plan to do as well...start buying some little things now for the holiday's. That way it isn't such a burden come the holidays. It seems like the summer just flew right by and Christmas and all that is fast approaching. I don't mind it too much...I'll be holing up for the most part...only going out for necessities. Time seems to keep going faster and faster. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Time is just going at warp speed. I mean wow. I can't believe school is starting already. And today I went with my cousin to register her children at the school in front of my building and I saw all these children in middle school and I was like wow. And I felt kind of weird actually. I think I felt kind of grownup already. But that's just crazy me.

Here in this part of Missouri the kids started school on August 13th. They've been back to school for a little while now. We never used to start school till like the end of August...it seems they keep making it earlier and earlier. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

The summer did seem to go by super fast but I was ready for the kids to go back to school. As far as the holiday I will most likely be spending ALOT less this year. This year prolly get them one medium thing they want then a comple small things like clothes, new shoes, etc. Plus kids birthdays are November, 2 are December 29, then Feb 2 so all near the holiday. With 4 kids and husband in school it is rough here. But we will survive always do.

It did go by fast. We started school in August though. But its crazy how fast it went by. The next thing you know it will be christmas. I think less will be spent for the holiday season. wow you already are buying halloween candy. maybe you should lock it up and give the key to a friend so you wont eat the candy. maybe i should get started buying for the holidays. well Happy Halloween, Happy Thanksgiving, and Merry Christams.

I know. But I'll probably bribe that friend or find a way to steal the key so I can eat the candy. But the good thing is that I am not eating the whole bag by myself. My cousin is here with her five kids and I give them. And then I give to my mother, my three siblings and my grandmother so I'm not eating too much. And a Happy Halloween, Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to you too. ^_^
