Project 365 {week 49}

I can’t believe we are starting week 50 of 2013 this week.

This year flew by.

It’s the simple moments that seem so…mundane.

Yet they are packed with special.

December 1: Caught--and mad about it.

December 2: The boys color their Advent pictures for the day.

December 6: I finally go to the doctor for the ear pain I have been having for the past month. Yup, it's an angry ear infection. boo. Drops and an antibiotic.

This week I finish up my fall semester of teaching at GRCC by grading research papers and exams.

Cortney will turn 35 this week.

Eddie and I have a Christmas shopping date.

And we have our first Christmas party.

It’s about to get busy up in here, yo.

Happy holidays.

  1. Yay for Christmas jammies, and yuck for ear infections – hope you’re feeling better.
    Sounds like a great week ahead!

  2. The older I get (and the older my kids get) the more I treasure our moments that were mundane.
    These are the things that we remember…that stories that get re-told.

    It’s the routine stuff, the tradition, the normal and everyday that my teenagers recall with smiles.

    The most recent memory they brought up (and I’m sorry if it’s gross, but OH MY GOSH my kids were cracking up) is this:

    When Jack and Karly were little, they hated having their fingernails trimmed. Naturally. So to get them giggling about it and willing to participate, I’d cut their nails over my coffee cup – as if I’d actually DRINK THE COFFEE afterward. Of course I didn’t, but they thought it was hysterical. We did this whenever the kids needed a trimming. Nothing special about it – in fact, I’d forgotten (probably intentionally).

    But they remember. With love.
    Go figure.
