Over the Holidays

We hosted our Christmas dinner at our house on Christmas night. We had 12 people total there. His family and mine. Not every one of course. It went well. We had a ton of food left over and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves! We will not be hosting another dinner at our house however. I got told I needed to invite people I hadn’t and that next year they (Robert’s parents) would give me a list of who I needed to invite. They obviously don’t know me that well yet… I informed them that there will not be a next year and this is my house and I will invite who I want. If they want every second cousin and third removed in-law invited they could host it at their house. I made my point and Robert’s dad apologized.

On another note I have been working on another goal: I am close buying a gun. I am researching what kind I want right now and for Christmas Robert got me a pistol training class. It is an 8 hour class and I will be taught how to disassemble a gun, put it back together and all the inner workings. Along with firing a gun properly. Very excited about this! I am on my way to accomplishing two goals with this: Buy a gun and get a concealed weapons permit.

I do have a goal to learn how to sew and make something. My mom got a sewing machine for Christmas thanks to my dad! Once she gets it all set up and starts her first project she is going to teach me how. She doesn’t know this yet. 🙂 I think for my first project I want to sew a nursing cover. Like the thing women put over there bodies to breast feed in public.

One more goal almost complete. Clean out the back room and make a living space: I have cleaned out the backroom and it is livable at this point. I still need to get my wedding dress cleaned and preserved so it is not sitting on the futon back there. Also, I need to get a small desk to house our office supplies and laptop. Once these two things are complete I will check this goal off.

On a more personal note the baby is just over 2 inches now and about the size of a lime. I am into my second trimester and should be out of the woods of any morning sickness which I never really got. Thank goodness! I have my next appointment with the doctor on 1/14/2010. It is just a check up though so no ultra sound 😦 Not sure when I get another one of those.

P.S. we are having a game night at our house for New years eve… That’s another goal!
