Yesterday my day was packed, so even though I had good intentions I never got around to blogging. Better late than never?
I am ready for Christmas! My shopping is 100% done. Yesterday I finished my holiday baking, so teacher gifts are finished. I still might make a few more treats, but there’s nothing pressing that HAS to get done. Of course, the kids are still in school, so that’s kind of a bummer… but they are out Thursday! I am ready!
This past weekend was jam-packed. My eldest had a choir concert. My middle had a Region Band concert, and then we hosted the Into the Woods cast holiday party. The kids had fun and the house survived 15 middle school theatre kids unscathed. Awesome.
We had our double orthodontist consult this morning. Thankfully only one of our girls needs braces right now, so that’s good. We’ll be looking at getting those started next year.
My husband had to use up some vacation days, so he’s off until the end of the year! He’s been keeping himself occupied by doing little jobs here and there around the house. Today is getting the gameroom organized. Yay for time off!
Do you use Craigslist? We’ve made two great purchases lately off there. We saved a lot of money on a used practice marimba for my youngest and we bought a counter-high table for our breakfast nook. I still need to find stools/chairs. I’m trying to convince Kevin to let me get red ones to match my KitchenAid mixer. He’s not a huge supporter of the idea. Anyway, both craigslist experiences were good ones.
Did I mention I’m ready for Christmas?
Alright… guess I’d better log off and go help hubby in the gameroom. Have a great week, friends!
