Blogging, Bookish and Real Life News:
Did you change your clocks if you live in the US? Early nights, chilly weather, steaming cups of cocoa. This is my FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR!
Halloween was nice the kids didn’t want to go out, so we took this year off. We celebrated my daughters 11th Birthday at Applebees and had a family party on Saturday. Today she has an early game so I will visit later. 🙂
50 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! I’m so excited! 🙂 October just flew by and now we get into the most magical time of the year. Yes I am sort of skipping over Thanksgiving but if you know me, you know how much I love Christmas time. The Halloween decorations are down and I have three weeks to get the house ready for Christmas decorations. The Kittens are going to be so confused but I am PRAYING they are good. They did so good with the Halloween Decorations I am hoping they do the same with Christmas. We are planning to wire the tree to the wall, that is what we did when we got Buttons and it worked, so I am hoping it will with them but they are in their kitten equivalent of ” the terrible twos” right now so this should be interesting. Going to cut back on what we put out and keep a lot of the fragile stuff up a lot higher.
Next weekend I start to paint my sons room and clean it all up. Because of his sensory issues he tends to peel paint from the walls so his room needs a fresh painting and a complete redo. He requested red but I refuse to paint it all red, so we are going to do one wall red and the rest with a nice grey. That way he gets his red and I get a nice looking boys room. My daughter once again needs redo in her room which I will do after his is done. Things I like to do last minute and right before Thanksgiving. I really need to plan better lol.
Once I have a free weekend I can get back to making sure I have enough blog posts for the rest of the year. I feel like every weekend is over before it even starts.
DID YOU SEE!!! COYER Website got a make over AND Coyer Winter Sign ups are NOW LIVE! That is correct we are starting early this year.
