Life: It Goes On - December 8

Here's what no one needs this time of year - a cold that basically takes you out of commission for two weeks. Poor Big Guy and Miss H both caught it this week and I still didn't have the energy to care for them the way they deserved to be taken care of until this weekend. Pushing myself to get the main floor of the house cleaned this weekend and the Christmas decorating done (I started two weeks ago; it's sort of time, don't ya think?).

How are you all doing with getting all of the things done? I can't believe Mini-me and Ms. S will be here in just two weeks! So much left to do - gifts not even started, cards just getting ordered today, and I need to finish shopping. Same story, different year!

Last Week I:

Listened To: Ta-Nehisi Coates' The Water Dancer. So good and the reader, Joe Morton, is phenomenal.

Watched: Some of the traditional Christmas shows (The Grinch, Rudolph), White Christmas and Elf for movies. And, of course, The Voice, football, and college volleyball.

Read: Guys, I finally hit a wall. I've been reading like crazy but being sick really put a kibosh on my reading. I've got books from the library that I'm probably going to end up taking back unread and I hate doing that! I'm feeling a little bit like reading is work right now and that's never good.

Made: I think spaghetti pie and brownie sundaes are the only things I can really say I made this week. Otherwise, it's been mostly tossed together meals, whatever is easiest for which ever of us feels best.

Enjoyed: Happy hour with friends the other night. It was so good to get out of the house and do something fun!

This Week I’m: 

Planning: On finishing up the majority of the shopping this week and getting Christmas cards sent. 

Thinking About: I'm pretty sure you've figured this out by now!

Feeling: Happy about the lovely weather we've had the past week - lots of sunshine and it was even warm enough yesterday that we had the back door open.

Looking forward to: Book club this week!

Question of the week: I'm thinking of what I'll make for meals while my family is all together. What are your go-to holiday meal ideas?

  1. I'm not done shopping but I may be done sooner, rather than later just because I am not wanting to spend a lot this year. My son asked for nice marble coasters and Tupperware. He's really an adult now. I DID just throw my Christmas card together. It's hard when no one ever wants to take a group pic. I have to go hunting for several pics to patch together. But it came out nice and boom... ordered. I feel so productive. My daughter is calling me from school because she is tossing her cookies and has a choir concert tonight. Fabulous!
