The “Daddy Bear” – that thing gets hauled all over the place and is slept with like this every night. The front of the ACU shirt says, “Greetings from Sharana” (Afghanistan) His daddy will be home Saturday. :-)
Laura at Heavenly Homemakers has offered us the opportunity to share what we’re thankful for in the last year. It’s supposed to be “Grati-TUESDAY” and today is Wednesday, but I was traveling yesterday and hadn’t written this ahead of time.
I’ll be honest with you, I’ve hesitated about doing this post for a while now. I am not a decorator, nor do I pretend to be. I don’t know what to do or how to do it. I can copy what someone else has done, but when I go to copy it, I have a super incredible really hard time spending the money to do it.
Case in point: my husband built the bookshelves and fireplace mantle you’ll see in these pictures in August when he was home for vacation. In August. Most of the shelves are still bare. I just really don’t know what to put on them.
But, in the spirit of the Yule, and in hoping that after I hit the after Christmas mega sales on decorating items, this will bring you a little bit of joy and maybe provide me with a “look how much I improved since last year” post next year. :)
My blood pressure dropped so rapidly that for days I ran into walls. I dropped things. My ears rang. Until I got used to the change in pressure, it impacted everything. Once I got used to it, everything was put on an even keel. Then I got pregnant with Jeb.Pin It
A friend’s blog post from this week inspired me to write this today. She blogged about taking over their family’s finances and looking forward to the coming year and seeing what she can do about emergency funds and vacation funds and such.
