First the kids were off school for a week and then I was cooking for days and then it was Thanksgiving and then it was a million other things AND the first miserable cold of the season which we passed around to everyone in the house AND a bunch of work and school stuff AND one of those “now we must reevaluate our life choices and make everything more complicated!” revelations that I like to have when I’m sick and busy AND did I mention that the new dog’s favorite pastime is slurping up an entire bowl of water and then horking it right back up onto the kitchen floor? Because it is. (He’s cute, but not very bright.)
There’s more to tell, of course, but for right now, I’ll leave you with my latest at Alpha Mom, because it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, and if I think about it too much, I have MANY MANY FEELS. What a difference a year makes, sometimes.
