Christmas is a-comin'. Ready or not, here she comes!! Our halls are decked, things are (mostly) done....we're about as ready as we're gonna be. Despite my vacation/sick days, this home stretch has still felt a little rushed....but such is life, I guess. I may as well just give up on this goofy idea I have… Continue reading The halls are decked, etc.
If you've been reading a while, you might remember this post from last year about the night Asher learned the sad truth about Santa Claus. And while that was all very bittersweet, there was a little part of me that was, of course, a little relieved to not have to keep up the act anymore.… Continue reading Things We Don’t Do & the Elf on the Shelf
(exhale/ big sigh of relief.....) I feel like I'm actually in a really good place with my big "Christmas To Do" list!! And it is such a relief, because it's only November 29th. (Which is also my Dad's birthday!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! Love you.) I have to say a word of gratitude though, for help… Continue reading In a good place
I hope everyone had a great holiday, if you celebrated it! I can't believe it's already the Sunday of the long weekend. 😦 I wish I had a few more days. We had a really nice Thanksgiving- small, quiet, intimate, and peaceful. Just the 4 of us + my parents. My Dad and I did… Continue reading Turkey Day 2021 Recap
In a perfect world, I would have some very cute and catchy Thanksgiving/ gratitude themed post prepped and ready to go today, since, you know, "Grateful Kae" and all.....gratitude is kind of my jam....and it's THANKSgiving.... But, I don't! 😆 I actually had not one single specific thing in mind to write this morning as… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving
I made the executive decision yesterday to decorate our house for Christmas, on November 15th. This is maybe the earliest I have ever decorated, and I'm feeling good about it. I have referenced (probably ad nauseum, sorry), that things are BUSY right now. We have like 4 swim meets coming up before Christmas. Asher's birthday… Continue reading Fall, out. Christmas, in. And a book rec.
This is definitely the "busy season" for many people, especially moms. You hear a lot about it....every year is the same. Everyone is stressed and harried and HAVING FUN and MAKING MEMORIES, people! 🙂 I'm guilty, too. I'm busy. I have a long to do list. It feels overwhelming. Some things are "want to dos",… Continue reading Christmas crazies and Bad Moms
Yay, Halloween was so much fun! I'm rather tired now, however, and I think teachers everywhere will be facing some sleepy children today, too. 🙂 Here are the highlights from our day yesterday: I ran some errands in the morning- grocery store/ Target. The cloudy morning turned sunny by the time I left the store,… Continue reading Halloween 2021 Highlights
The weather turned grey, blustery, windy and cool, right on time for Halloween night. 🙂 How appropriate! October seemed to go really, really fast, which makes me a little sad! I like October. I have a little feeling like it sort of slipped away from me. But I also know I did enjoy it, too.… Continue reading Happy Halloween!
Happy belated 4th of July!!! This felt like an extra long holiday weekend- I guess because it actually was. It was so nice having the holiday fall on a Sunday- both Ivan and I had off then on Monday in observance of the holiday. (This is always a pet peeve of mine, especially with holidays… Continue reading 4th of July LONG weekend!
