:: I've made a decent dent in the Christmas shopping (online mostly)
:: I found this awesome Nativity puzzle on Etsy. I cannot wait to give it to the boys on December 1st. Ours is a little bigger than the one I linked to - this mini one looks so cute!
:: I have no idea where all my time is going and I don't have too much to show for it either!
:: I am falling in love with my crock pot again
:: Realized that it was time to mix a batch (or two) of some chex mix
:: I have been totally slacking when it comes to the gym. Need.to.get.back.
:: I took my sewing machine to be services - finally. Who can disco while listening to Christmas music?
:: I was given an older serger (read - manual threading/tension adjusting) this summer - for free. It terrifies me. I was going to name it Serge or something clever like that ... for now I'm calling it the Terminator. The man who serviced it was so nice and even gave me a lesson; told me to come back if I ever needed help. I haven't touched it since. One spool of thread is almost out ... do you think he will mind if I brought over all my Christmas sewing to his shop and just set up camp?
:: Henry looks just so ... so big to me now that he's lost a tooth. What will I do when his voice changes and he is taller than me!
:: My house is trashed. Lincoln Logs, Lego's, super hero costumes, light sabers, and lots of small plastic pieces litter the
:: I spent waaaayy too much time the other week sorting the Lego's. I was obsessed. For real. Now each set has it's own tupperware container with the instructions. It was worth it (despite my aching back and John constantly asking when I was going to share). The boys rediscovered sets that they didn't even remember having. I type this to remind myself that it was not done in vain - my hard work brought them great joy for one week ... and once they find their way back into one communal bin I can reread this and remember that ;-)
:: I managed to go 38 years without ever mowing the grass. I grew up in a town house, lived in apts., and then got married. I never had the need! Our mower is not self propelled so it was a work out!
:: I have finished two books and picked up and put down two others. I know I will come back to them but they just aren't what I am in the mood for. I find it hard once I've finished a really good book to move on to another unless it too just grabs me from the first page. How about you?
:: I am doing a swapwith a friend of mine - she is going to take pics of us and I am going to make doll "quilts" for bunk beds that were hers when she was a little girl that her granddad made - the quilts are part of a Christmas present for her daughter. I love that family history and I'm excited to have a little part to play.
:: John appeared downstairs today donning his full batman costume - the one he was supposed to wear for Halloween (but refused to even try it on - despite having picked it out). Wonder if I can convince him to wear it for next Halloween ...
:: I think I better go bake some bread.
Do you need to declutter?
