Mid November 2009 Update
Well, my thanksgiving list has had to be mental lately. We’ve been hit by stomach bugs that hit the whole family, and recovery from that has been slow with my youngest. He’s needed a lot of help making it through school days lately. Allergy season has hit, and we just celebrated an 11th birthday with my girl.
I’m still playing praise band and teaching 2nd grade Sunday School at church. We are in the midst of moving in the library and all the details that entails. I’ve joined a Tuesday scrap-booking group to motivate me, and we have a teenage son now with all the traffic that brings to the home.
This weekend held a birthday party with seven girls, a puking 8 year old boy the next day, and a house full of 24 teenage boys (and a few adults mixed in acting like boys) for flag football and burgers.
I got a jump start to holiday cleaning on the house with all that going on, but much left to do. Today: the guest room (stuff to donate and clear), dust picture frames, clean glass on them, wash “whites”, clean a path in the garage so I can move in Christmas boxes for decorating while weather is good, and prepare first set of Christmas cards (I have an enormous family, so this takes a LONG time to finish).
I’m also beginning a “Holiday” class free at JessicaSprague.com. Today is the last day to register, and it’s based around record keeping, goal setting, and notating holidays. Let me know if you are interested and I can send you the free code. Registration ends tonight at midnight (sorry, I only read about it today).
I’m doing well, but most days are by grace and seem very full with either activity or recovery, so blogging and social networking have had to slip. But, it’s a graceful slip–always is when priorities reign.
I hope all of your are well and hope to get in touch soon, those of you I kept up with through blogging in the past.
