I guess a decision has been made. I have been dithering for a long time about Grace and whether or not to push for her going through an honest to goodness ADD/ADHD assessment. I am going to call first thing tomorrow morning to see if I can get her in to be tested. I have researched it to the hilt, and I swear that every symptom I have seen listed fits her to a tee. She needs some kind of help, whether it be medication or simple behavior modifying strategies - but the fact remains that she needs help, and I am the only advocate she has for getting that help. I feel like I would be failing her as her mother if I didn't explore every avenue I could.

I finally put my Christmas tree up on Saturday. We listened to Christmas music, made gingerbread cookies from scratch, drank hot cocoa (in Momma's case, spiked with espresso), and decorated the tree. Lexi was in raptures during the whole process, since Christmas is her favorite holiday. Josie was a little more alert this year, but has been surprisingly good about not touching the tree (so far). Ha!

I watched a bit of Dexter on tv tonight, and have to say I'm disappointed. They surely didn't follow the books very well, did they? That stinks. I hate when they do that to books I like.

NFL - GO STEELERS!!! I am loving Ben! (Not that I didn't before, but still.)

In other news, I joined Facebook, and am totally, utterly addicted! My favorite thing to do on there is fight with my zombies, vampires, and slayers! It's not an RPG (a role-playing game) - it's more like Myspace, but... cooler. Here's the link to my profile:

I also looked into a printer tonight that would print out 12 x 12 pages (for scrapbooking), and great googly moogly, they're freakin' expensive! I don't think I'll be getting one any time soon. :( But that's okay, it's still fun to digiscrap anyway! Plus when I can, I still do it the regular way, too.

I think that's it for now. Hope everyone had a good weekend, and have a great week!
