Scamp ended up having a virus. She seemed to really feel better after we got home from the mall, but she woke up throwing up that same night. She also had a fever, which has finally come down today. Hopefully, Beef and I won't get sick as well.
Beef couldn't find anything wrong with the car. He thinks I may have just ran over something instead of it falling out from underneath the car.
I did manage to get most of the presents I bought at our last shopping trip wrapped and put under the tree. I spent an hour shopping (not including driving) while Scamp was sleeping on Monday. I don't think I've ever been that productive before because I went to four different stores (including Wal Mart!) and got home with several more presents.
Our first family Christmas party is this Saturday. It's my maternal grandmother's side. Lately, they have been having it at the church I grew up at, which has started a whole new tradition for my family. We take family pictures in front of church's Christmas decorations. I'm sure I'll share some of those.
