I almost waited a few more days so it would be one full month since I blogged but then I realized if I didn't just get back here it might be another month! In another month, it will be January!! I know that's obvious but still, it is shocking. :)
So, how is everyone out there? I am good. At last broadcast I shared how I had hit a deer and Patrick was going to fix the headlight. He did get it fixed and I was so happy to have a van again! So happy! Every time I got in it I said I didn't care about the fender/hood/door/bumper/cdplayer (haha) and I was JUST FINE. And then the transmission went out. :) On Thanksgiving night as I was going to meet my sister at Kohl's. :( So, on Black Friday we shopped for a new van and got one. And it is very nice and I am only slightly bitter (still) that we had to get a new one but fixing the old one just made NO sense. (Progressive had deemed it a total loss after the deer and paid us for it so that deer was a huge blessing, actually. no deer=no check for $3000.00)
My Dad and Mari and Thomas all came down for Thanksgiving and we had a very nice day at my sister & Ronan's house. see below for evidence:
I have been failing miserably at taking pictures lately. I didn't do my annual photo book this year. I didn't put up any outdoor decorations. My cards are not sent. My gifts are not all bought or wrapped. It's kind of a bummer but I have been working a lot and cutting stuff off the list that will stress me out. I'm good with that. I don't feel like I have too much to do and if I just do the basics, we will be just fine. We are cozy in our house with pretty snow and lots of cocoa. Right?? :)
But of course I will finish shopping and wrapping. That is so fun!
