I think some of my friends wonder what I do all day now that I’m not teaching. I’ve heard cracks about all the naps I must take, yadda yadda yadda.

2013ballooninflationI’m thankful for my amazing husband and daughter, who love me enough to do things like come with me to the Macy’s parade balloon inflation yesterday. In the rain, then in the freezing rain, just to help honor my favorite tradition.

I’m thankful that even though I lost my job this year I seem to be finding my way.

halloween13_1 I decided not to decorate inside this year because a certain 2.5′ tall gremlin is into everything. I can only imagine what horrors would await my stair mice or Halloween garlands and piggy banks. But, the outside of the house is ready.

Seriously, I am not even making that statement up. Today was her first day of toddler school in her Montessori program, and I tried hard to keep it together. I took these photos this morning after I got her dressed.

This is one of those projects that’s been on my To Do list forever! Our door was so dirty and boring, it really needed a makeover. So this week, I gave it one.
