I've been neglecting the blog lately.  I came down with a cold and S stopped sleeping through the night so A and I have both been sleep deprived (moreso A since he's been getting up with S while I battle this cold).  S is sleep deprived too, but you'd never know it!!  He'd give the Energizer Bunny a run for his money!  I've just been trying to make it through the day and counting down the minutes until bedtime.

Our previous weekend was a good one.  Saturday was W's preschool pancake breakfast and then A's teaching assistant came over to watch the boys.  I just love her.  We hoped to go to a movie, but there was a snow storm looming so we decided to grab lunch and run a bunch of errands.  It's amazing how much faster you get things done without two little boys in tow! ;)

Sunday was our usual.

Other than that, I can't wait to be done with this awful cold.  My latest Stitch Fix arrives today - yay!  I'm really looking forward to Christmas with the boys.  W is very excited and I love experiencing his enthusiasm.  S isn't really sure what's going on, but I know he's going to be thrilled to see presents on Christmas morning.  W officially turned 4 and I just can't believe it.  How have four years passed??  I had a (very) personal setback that I'll discuss later (also why I've been absent) - I'm still processing it.  We're all mostly healthy (except for the cold I'm battling and a mild ear infection for W) and I'll be ok eventually.  But suffices to say, I'm looking forward to time off of work, spent with family.  A and the boys definitely lift my spirits - so grateful for them.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.  Many blessings to each of you and your families.


  1. Sorry to hear about the setback - hope xmas w/family does the trick, makes you feel better.

    I myself am having a hard time this holiday season - the looming President Elect creates an atmosphere of such instability and fearfulness for me.

    Plus I'm experiencing some peri-menopausal issues - so weird to still be in period business at age 54! All of my friends are DONE.

    Make sure you model your Stitch Fix for the blog - when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping. Or - open the packages mailed to them. Doesn't sound as snappy, tho... :o)

    MC & HH to you, too!

    1. I completely understand your concerns about the President Elect - I have them too. And the more I learn, the more fearful I am. I am hoping that he gets himself impeached - a sad thing to hope for, but the longer he is in office, the more damage he is capable of. If you don't already, I'd encourage you to follow Pantsuit Nation. Many uplifting stories and it's restored some of my faith in humanity. I'm also encouraged that this election has persuaded more women to pursue politics and run for various positions.

      Sorry to hear about your health issues. It's incredible really, but I can understand your frustration.

      I'll share my Stitch Fix soon - it was a really good one!! :)
