It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, at least in our house we’re getting closer. We finally got our tree up yesterday, although I’ve come to the conclusion that my house is not designed for Christmas trees. We’ve had our tree in several different places throughout the year and we’ve never found a […]

Another week and another week closer to the end of the year! I didn’t post anything last week because I was so close to finish a couple of books but hadn’t actually finished anything by the time I would have had to post something. So, I decided to just wait a week. But, in doing […]

Welcome everyone! Are we ready for the craziness to come. For those of us in the US, the craziness starts on Thursday (or now–if you are like me and hosting Thanksgiving). We actually got a jump on it last night when we headed down for our town’s Holly Days and Christmas Tree Lighting. I can’t […]

Hello all! I skipped my update last week because, by the time I would have posted, I hadn’t yet finished a book. I figured I should wait until I actually had a book update! This past week has actually been a quiet one for us. The kids had Thursdays and Friday off from school (Thursday […]

Happy (almost) Halloween! I have to admit that I enjoy Halloween more as an adult than I did as a kid. It’s not because I get to go out grown-up parties, but I love watching my kids (and husband) have fun with the holiday. My brother-in-law came down for the holiday, as he usually does, […]

Once again, I’ve gone off the radar and, once again, it was not intentional. I’ve been writing these posts on Sundays, but our Sundays have just gotten busy. I guess I should shift things and write this on Saturdays or Sundays. Anyway, what has been new with us? The kids have been busy with school. […]

I once saw a meme that said something like, “Adulthood is just saying, ‘In two weeks, things will calm down’ over and over again until you die.” Folks, truer words have never been spoken! I (once again) convinced myself that things would calm down once the kids were back in school…but NOPE! Because of this […]

What a week! The kids are back in school–Chris went back on Tuesday and Lillie on Wednesday–and so far all is going well. Lillie is having some frustration with her math class. She tested ahead in math so, last year, she took algebra–which she would have normally taken in 8th grade. This year is geometry, […]

I’ve decided to do monthly updates as a Wednesday post, instead of tacking them onto my weekly update posts. That being said, my last weekly update post listed all of my August reads, so I won’t be including them here. Also, I cannot figure out how to do one of those nifty infographics with all […]
