November Currently

So I can see it's been awhile since I posted.  I have such good intentions, and then life happens!!!

Here some reasons (excuses) as to why I have been missing lately!  (Other than being a teacher.)  I'm linking up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade.
Listening to the washer, because no one is even up yet!  I know it's FALL back, but my tiny dog friend was not informed. Please note after he pranced all over me and tortured me to get up, he is now asleep in my arm.  One armed typing is not fast or accurate if you are wondering.
Loving the cooler temperatures.  Wish we didn't skip fall entirely in Kansas, but the 80 degree days can take a brief leave of absence.  I own a lot of sweaters, and they need to be worn!
Thinking my lovely Ali should be home soon!  As in out of the Navy, moving in with me (and her sisters) so I can hold the grand baby in February! This is the newest development in my already busy life.  A happy one, but it has caused some changes.  The girl is coming home!!  I am for real going to be doing some baby holding.  AND I am going to need to move!
Thus, I am wanting another day to rest.  How about a day between Sunday and Monday? Anyone?

I NEED to finish packing!  I have most of the house in boxes.  With the daughter coming home- no car, and the other 3 of us already sharing two cars, being 30 minutes away from Olathe is too much.   So happy, happy, joy, joy... the girls and I are off to a new place.  (A tiny place.)  That's all girls and eventually one very small baby boy!  (And Emerson of course!)
Finally, I have been scouring all the blogs/Pinterest on small spaces.  We will have 1300 square feet with 4 of us and a baby.  I have measured, down sized, multi-purposed EVERYTHING I can.  I feel good about it, I feel even better about being close to work.  I love that we can support Ali, and we benefit from the little dude.  BUT I am slightly concerned about space.  Baby is getting a mini crib.  Kate and I repainted/refreshed the dresser,  I used as a changing table with Libby (nearly 17 years ago!)  I had the sewing machine tuned up so I can make little guy all the bedding and nursery décor.  I'm waiting for Ali to pick what she wants.  Personally, I love those little woodland creatures that just keep popping up.  Who doesn't love little foxes and raccoons?? (However, I do VIVIDLY recall how I felt about my mother's input --- so I will be supportive and keep my mouth shut!)

That's why I have been crazy busy aka missing from the blog!  I forgot to mention, I also made a personal TPT goal and I'm having a SALE!


  1. SO exiting that your daughter will be home soon, and babies are so much fun!!! I have a 7 month old and time is FLYING by!!! Good luck with moving into a smaller space. You are so smart to be so organized and plan everything out!!! I bet everything will look great!

  2. My pup always does the same thing-wakes me up to go out and then goes right back to sleep! :) He/she is just adorable! You definitely have everything all planned out-how exciting to have the family together.

  3. It will be so nice to have your daughter (and baby) home! Togetherness is so important (even if it means moving). :)
