I almost didn’t blog today… I feel compelled to blog on a schedule, because that is how I am wired. I like to blog every 7-10 days and sometimes I push that out to every 2 weeks. It’s my rhythm, my flow. For some reason though, my brain froze at the end of October. While November has been happening, I’ve been kind of a sitting back wondering how we got here. Usually I have all sorts of stories about our happenings, cute pictures of the kids. I’m low on all of those right now. I’m not quite sure why, but here are a few highlights…
We survived daylight savings ending. For some reason, it was harder on me this year. My body just didn’t adjust to the time change all that well and I felt off for a about week. I’ve been in major book party mode with the holiday selling season upon us. That fills up a lot of evenings. I went away to a conference last weekend with some children’s ministry leaders from our church. The boys had a fantastic weekend Nana & Papa. I will admit that while I enjoyed the kid free time and while the conference was a wonderful resource, I often wished I could sneak back to the hotel and take nap or start my Christmas shopping. However, having a team come with us, kept my head in the game and made me responsible for participating. The pictures I took that weekend were of my first pizza at MOD pizza and the “waffled” pancakes the hotel breakfast offered. I live an exciting life, folks.
While the first half of the month has just been keeping up with business, the second half should offer more fun and entertainment. This weekend we plan on going to my nephew’s birthday party. We also plan on starting our Christmas shopping. Then comes thanksgiving. I have a huge list of goodies that need to be baked. I’m making my baking schedule for Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday morning. Friday is the day we plan to decorate the inside of the house for Christmas. On Saturday the 24th, we’re hosting a holiday cookie decorating outing for our MOPS & MOMSnext group at the house. That should be fun… and sticky… So yes, as you can see, the latter half of the month promises to be quite holly, jolly, merry and bright.
Here are the photos I could find since my last post. Enjoy!
