Oh Joy. An Update.

Blogging has definitely hit the bottom on my list of priorities. I'm not happy about that, but there's not a whole lot I can do about it until life slows down to turtle pace. Who am I kidding? That's never going to happen around here . . .

Briefly, this is what I've been up to the past week or so:

1. Promoting my puppies . . . they're all sold. I've got Sir Lancelot with me until Thursday morning and then he meets his new owner. For some reason I'm having an extremely difficult time departing with my puppies this time around. I don't know why . . . I just am.

2. Work. Work. And more work. But the good thing is, I'm down to four-days-a-week in December, which means I've got every Friday off. PLUS . . . I get two weeks off at Christmastime to coincide with Mitchell & Ty's school break. Yeah for flexibility!

3. My car. Apparently a wire had completely disconnected . . . a very important wire. That's why my car would start one day and not the next. Thankfully, this bill was only $55. That, I can handle.

4. Snow and extreme weather. I've done a lot of shoveling the last couple of days, and a lot of bundling up too. Last night we were down to minus 27 degrees Celsius with wind as well . . . today we had a bit of a mini-snowstorm. Our school bus hasn't ran once yet this week, which means the Dodge Ram and I have become public transportation providers. Hopefully the bus gets fixed soon . . . being a chauffeur is cramping my style.

5. Christmas decorating. Yesterday I brought home 3 foot artificial trees for the boys to decorate for their bedrooms. They had so much fun decorating their little trees! This weekend we're going to pick out a 'real' tree . . . we've never had one, so this is a huge deal for me. I've got my silver and gold decorations all set and ready to go . . . I can't wait to see my tree after it's all trimmed!

6. Christmas baking. Yes, I've begun. I'm not in full force yet, but having my Fridays free in December is really going to help me get a lot of treats made!

7. Sleep deprivation. Need I say more?

Ha! Ha! I listed seven things without even intending to. I love seven. Just thought I'd remind you all of that again . . .

Halleluiah that it was just a wire on your car!

And your extreme weather comment makes me miss No. Wisconsin. I love that type of weather...

i am thinking the puppy thing might be related to the previous baby thing!

great news about your schedule; it will be so nice to not have to worry about work with the boys home!

take care!

Suuurrre you "accidentally" named seven things! I don't buy it girl! LOL!

Hooray for free Fridays. That is a blessing for sure!

And PTL on your car!

Hugs, Amy
