I would have written about 4 blog posts… Oh well.
Life has been crazy. That’s no excuse for my lack of attention to my blog, but sadly things got crazy in my world. Like quicksand crazy. Maybe soon I’ll share a little about that as it involves some holiday festivities, travel (an 8 hour road trip with three kids under the age of 4, where the good Lord helped two parents come out alive), wild work days, and trying to keep up with everything by using a completely un-structured Bullet Journal, where I cannot wrap my mind around the concept but trying to implement it as my planner. (Yeah-definitely more to come on that). Here’s hoping I get it under wraps by 01-01-2017! So in light of the craziness, I’m here to share random thoughts because that’s truly life right now. A mass of messy madness.
-I’m thoroughly enjoying my Christmas tree this year! (But I do every year)
-I hate chapped lips. I have finally found some lip balm that works, but I’m learning it means I actually have to apply it on the regular, and let’s just say while I thought the “gap” was finding the right lip balm, it’s not…
-I love my job and the people I work with… No worries. That’s not to be a kiss up in hopes that my boss reads this and sees my enthusiasm. But I mean if so…
-I am about to decide that I want to start the tradition of buying a “yearly family Christmas ornament.” I’ve only had a family for 6 years and now I want to try to recall which kids were present each year, or even try to match it with a special celebration we did that year… What am I thinking? I’m thinking about getting the cute face/people/personalized ones, but actually just bought one this year from a place we visited & plan to just add our names where they fit. I think I like the spontaneous option better. And why not? I’m back-tracking anyway.
-My husband does not understand why I love Hallmark Christmas movies because he thinks they are all the same, to which I tell him…they are. It’s the predictability us women love… No guessing what’s going to happen next, just simple, stay the same, happy ending, in the midst of our favorite season, movies.
-“I got this feeling, inside my bones…I got that sunshine in my pocket” I LOVE that song. And so do my kids. It’s our official Dance Party song. And it’s great on a bad day! You have to get up and dance / sing it, no matter what your mood is.
-Pretty sure it’s the latter. Some days I try to make a list of all the things I need to get done, then the list gets shoved into a pile of paperwork that includes a task of “go through paperwork” on the to do list, so doesn’t look like I’m going to find that list… (Yeah, see why life has been a bit chaotic in Jennifer’s world).
-I just need a Coke. Not just any Coke. A large fountain Coke from McDonalds, which by-the-way costs $2.07 including tax but in NC I found it for $1.00 for any size! Why can’t they have that here?? So sad! And so hard on my budget.
Until next time…which hopefully won’t be a long time.
