Project 365 {week 48}

Oh hey. Look at that.

I went a whole week without blogging.

Instead of blogging I graded papers and did some lesson planning.

I baked a pumpkin pie.

I did over 75% of my Christmas shopping on Black Friday.

I finished my classes that I was taking for this semester,

and registered for two for next semester.

Along with my boys I tackled our playroom/family room and WON.

I did seven loads of laundry.

And I ate a giant Thanksgiving meal.

See?

November 30: My little buddy. Cort is bowling in a tournament and little brother is sleeping, so this guy makes it his job to keep me company while I work on the couch.

I can’t even begin to explain how needed this time off was.

Amid the busy, it was calm.

I was hardly on the internet and instead read books and played with the boys.

It was delightful.

And now as we begin the Christmas season, I will probably also be taking it a bit slower here on the blog.

It’s an important time to spend the time we have with each other.

So we will.

I’ll share as we go.

Happy holidays.

  2. I’m glad you got this much-needed break with your family.

    Like you, I didn’t blog or go on Facebook or Twitter. In fact from Thursday through Sunday, I barely looked at my phone.

    It was lovely.
    I was loved.

    And oh so lucky.
