Saturday Reflections 11.11.2017


Whew! This busy week of nighttime activities has come to an end. And I’m exhausted! My photo project the other day made me realize how truly active I am first thing in the morning. It makes sense why I crash every afternoon. And explains why it’s so hard to function at night. Five nights in a row is a lot of stuff. Hard for me to handle. But overall, it was a fun week! I’m just very, very tired today.


On Sunday we celebrated my brother Tyler’s birthday. And spent lots of time with Hudson. 🙂



I couldn’t believe how into the book he was! He’s only four months old!


They have matching coats!




Monday morning was an early one with daylight’s savings in full effect. The boys didn’t have school. They were dressed and playing a board game around 5:40. We celebrated the day off by going to Ponderosa with my parents for lunch and then wandering around Toyland at Fleet Farm.


On Tuesday I was feeling really crappy and SO not in the mood for yoga. But I knew we’d be the only ones there this week and I couldn’t stand the thought of the teacher showing up with no students. So I compromised by only going to the kid class.


Wednesday was supposed to be my one night home alone. Greg was seeing Thor with a friend and the boys were going to Grandma’s. So I decided to “celebrate” by spending the day out and about on some fun errands. I got a bunch of new Christmas fabrics and then had a late take out lunch from Panera. By the time my few hours alone rolled around I couldn’t really relax enough to enjoy it. There was so much to do. There’s always too much to do.


I did finish up my first batch of Christmas dolls. This was my favorite one. I was really tempted to keep her. But someone bought it today.


Thursday was my busiest day. I was doing that #ONEDAYHH photo project, so you can read about it there. It was a great day!

I was pretty wiped by Friday. I was hoping to work all day, but I just couldn’t find the motivation. I spent quite a large chunk of the day reading in bed. In the evening I went to the Peddler’s Barn sale with my mom, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law. I found a few fun treasures to go with my dolls. It was so cold and crowded! We had dinner at Culver’s afterward.


This morning we were up super early again, so Shepard and I went to the Dane County farmer’s market. It was their last outdoor market. I was making a list of all the delicious treats I wanted to get since they won’t be available to me again until May! But we got there and only about 25% of the booths were there. 🙁 I’ve only been to the winter indoor market once and it seemed pretty lame. But I see they’ve moved to a bigger venue, so I’ll definitely have to check it out again this year.


Since none of the other pastries and breads we wanted were available, we got a half priced loaf of hot and spicy cheese bread to try and warm up. So good, but not really worth it’s $12 full price.


We stopped at Starbucks in Target on the way home for an extra treat. When we got home I dropped off Shepard and took Annie to the dog park for an hour. Got back again and Greg was still sleeping because it was the first time  probably ever that nobody woke him up. When he did wake up, I went back to bed! Busy morning. Cold morning! I’ve been working the rest of the day. Not really in the mood for it, but I’m trying to get ahead. Will it ever happen?

Anyway, I realized I should probably at least address my Sunday Intentions from earlier in the week to see if I actually did anything I wanted to do. I don’t know if I treated work as my highest priority, but I did put more time into it than in the past few weeks. I completed two batches of Christmas dolls, so that’s good. I did not learn any new blog things. I have a list of some things I want to talk to Greg about. We just haven’t had time. It’s a ships passing kind of week. And decluttering – I did enough that I at least feel better about the state of our house! I had the boys help me with some stuff on Monday morning. And I did some more before Katy came over for coffee on Thursday. Inviting people over is always the biggest guarantee I’ll actually clean things!

Well, I’m off to fold laundry that’s been piling up all week. I think I’m going to take tomorrow off from work and everything. I need a lazy day. Motivation is seriously lacking right now.

Hope you had a good week!
