Have you missed me? I’ve hit a major blogging burn out. As well as a cleaning, exercising, healthy eating, photo taking, getting dressed burn out. Lame. Yesterday was the worst of it too. We were all sick, Timmy didn’t have school and I needed to go to the commissary. He was whiny, I was grumpy…nothing got done. womp womp. Sad Megan.
Today though…much better. Maybe because it’s FRIDAY! This week seemed long and awful yet seemed to fly by at the same time because nothing happened. Gym, check. Timmy at school and happy, check. Grocery shopping, check. Dinner with a friend and 5 wild kids, check and check. It was just a good end to a blah week. I’m looking forward to turning my frown upside down and moving on and getting back into the swing of things. Hopefully this good mood sticks around.
So now, on with the week.
1. Saturday we went on the wine train with some of T’s friends. It was a good enough time. The picture is the bus ride after the train to the winery. Good times.
2. MAIL! I love Christmas and online shopping because I LOVE getting mail.
3. The only one that sat still in front of the tree for me and I don’t think he was happy about it.
4. A cart return at the commissary! Finally!!! I’ve been saying for 2 years how dumb it is that we don’t have one and I have to take the cart aaaallll the way back up to the store (lazy.)
5. Two part photo…first, check out these awesome shirts I got for the kids on Zulily a long time ago. They finally came in! Also, yay Alabama! 2 more months.
Now I need to go through my camera and dig out this weeks 365 photos. This weekend is the Holiday Bazaar is this weekend. Lots of local vendors set up in the gym for one weekend. I’m excited to pick up some Korean goodies while we are still here.
We put up the Christmas tree! We ate some too…but that wasn’t nearly as exciting.
Oh yeah, and it snowed. Definitely a sign that we needed to get Christmas up ASAP! Even though I had been sneaking bits in the house each day leading up to the day we could get the tree up.
Ok ok, so it is pretty to look at…but still. Bah humbuh. I hate cold.
It snowed a full week earlier than last year. FYI.
Anywho, on to the good stuff. Layla and I have been putting the tree up together for a couple of years now. We have a pretty good system going. This year we had to let Timmy in to help us too.
She finds the right colored branches (the job I hate to do) and Timmy hands them to me so I can stick them in the…trunk? Post? Whatever. The tree. Then she fluffs the bottom and I fluff the top. After I take pictures and get yelled at for not helping. Voila.
Timmy fluffed too.
Finally lights and our mish mash or ornaments that we have collected in the last 10 years we’ve been together. Happy happy Megan! Christmas is my faveorite.
Now that I’m posting this it is FINALLY December. Now time can slow the heck down a bit! Please.
Dude. It’s Sunday! This is been the busiest 4 day weekend ever. Totally skipped my H54F and my Saturday 365 posts. I’m sure I could have found time on Friday to post something but I was sucked into the Amazon.com lightning deals even if I didn’t need/buy and of it…I could’t look away.
So…here we are, one month down! Project 365: Week 4. I totally give up on not using my phone. For the most part I use my camera but sometimes it just doesn’t happen. TWICE this week! Ack!
Day 23: Derby night. Mute’s phone.
Day 24: Yarn I’ll never use.
Day 25: Lazy girl
Day 26: Snowing.
Day 27: Old lady Sadie
Day 28: CHRISTMAS TREE! And old ornaments.
Day 29: Black Friday = Free size upgrade.
I’m excited I’ve made it through one month! Now to get through 11 more.
And now that I have my weekly photos posted I can go through the rest of the photos from the weekend.
The black birds start swarming in…
They come in streams. Like the Nemo turtles riding the current. And they go on forever.
And they will be everywhere all winter.
Annoyed little cluster of magpies
On another note….this boy is kinda sweet.
And this old lady is too…
Not so much this one…
Trying hard to come up with something…ANYTHING to write about. I’ve been very meh lately. Not motivated to take pictures or write or gym or do much of anything. Trying to pick up my camera and just take pictures anyway.
Oh yeah…it snowed some more today. The second snow so far but still nothing on the ground, thankfully.
Winter is coming.
Timmy understands how I feel.
