Hello, Monday!

I’m back from almost a two week hiatus. I felt a little guilty about not posting during the holidays, but not guilty enough to motivate me to do something about it. Our holidays were pretty hectic this year due to the play Audrie and I performed in. We had two performances Christmas Eve and one Christmas morning, and right afterwards, we headed out of town to have Christmas with Jonathan’s family. Also, we welcomed a new cousin on Christmas Eve, Miss Ava Grace, who threw everyone for a loop since she wasn’t due until this Friday. On top of that, we had a couple of cases of pinkeye as well as some winter colds that made for an interesting visit, meaning that we were quarantined for the whole week we were away. So, we have to schedule a make-up visit to see all of the family we missed this Christmas.


Now that we are back, we can resume the normal schedule, make that, the new normal schedule.

This morning…

:: I’m writing down my goals for this year for the house, schooling, business, and the blog. We are going to make some big changes this year. One of my goals is to quit slacking on the blog, so I’m going to make a concerted effort to blog more often.

:: We’re taking down Christmas décor. Didn’t we just get it all out?


:: We have the Rose Parade on, but we’re not watching it.


:: I can’t wait to see Audrie’s new bedding on her bed. It seems like we buy her a new quilt about every six months because the dog chews holes through them. Grrr.


:: I hope to pick up our “Christmas” cards today. We had a problem with the printer, and they were delayed, but they’re going to at least give them to me for free! Better late than never.

:: I’m trying to figure out a design for a banquette that incorporates baskets. It will hopefully look something like this:

:: Although I think I’m going to be getting a lot done today with my two helpers, we’ll most likely spend the day playing with this…

:: Plus, my helpers haven’t even gotten out of their pjs yet.
