Dinner out after seeing Santa.

Thanks as always to Danielle from Sometimes Sweet for the inspiration for this post.  I love taking a few minutes in the middle of the chaos to think about where I am right now.  Let's get to it!

Loving:  Yesterday's 12/12/12 photo challenge.  I put my 12 pictures together in my post yesterday.  It was really fun seeing all the pictures pop up in my Twitter feed every hour.  It made an ordinary day seem a little less ordinary.

Enjoying:  Being home after our weekend away.  It was really strange being away from J and Little J, not having the comforts of home or my own car to get around.  Home is home and even though there are things I don't like about our house or things that annoy me being around my kids all day, I'd rather be here than anywhere else.  It's nice to have that reminder.

Looking forward to:  Meeting my cousin's little girl who was born the other day.  She's the first cousin of mine to have a baby so this is my first second cousin... is that how this works?  Either way, I'm excited!

Thinking about:  Christmassy things to do with the kids.  I'm trying really hard this year to make Christmas special and full of fun things.  I like the idea of a Christmas advent calendar filled with activities and maybe I'll be prepared enough to do it next year.  This year I'm winging it but it's going well.  Eleven days left!

Working on:  Getting the house cleaned so I can focus on fun things like making a photobook (I have lofty plans of making a yearbook for our family) or getting crafts ready for the kids.

Reading:  I just got The Death Cure out of the library.  It's the third book in a series by James Dashner meant for teens but if it's anything like the first time I'm in for a great read. 

That's about it.  I wish I could say I was watching fun shows or going out and doing fun things but I really haven't been doing much lately that isn't my day-to-day, other than going to Calgary obviously.  But being away was hard and it's taking time to get back to normal.


  1. I think Little J and Baby K are second cousins with your cousin's baby. Your relation to the baby is first cousin once removed :)

    1. I always thought "once removed" had to do with divorce!
