I think my new Life Planner cover kind of sums it up for this post. In my campaign to catch up on life, to get back to it, I’ve got a few planner updates.

October 2016

Last month we painted our bedroom, had new carpet installed, Adam was out of town for a week on business, Hannah missed 3 or so days of school with a bug that just lingered, Halloween happened, H filmed to be on Sesame Street, I started a YouTube channel, my friend Kathy’s book was released, we saw the neurologist for a checkup for H, and I tackled about 70 trillion projects around the house.

It’s still a work in progress, so I don’t have any final reveals yet. We’re getting new carpet installed sometime (hopefully) in the next week, and I’m still working on our new bed quilt. I’ve been on hiatus from that one, but I’ve gotten back to it this week.

I am so behind on posts, I’ve been having computer problems lately. I’ve had a ton of photos on my phone ready to download for posts, but my laptop hasn’t entirely cooperated. So, let’s talk about fall decorating!

Last Monday was Hannah’s first day. Technically the first day was right after Labor Day, but we were in Florida. Her school does a couple of phase-in weeks to start the year, and she’s only 4, so we figured if ever there was a time to take advantage of low crowds for our sensory kid, this was it.

It’s the last day of August, and it feels like a good time to check in with all the remaining summer fun we’ve had that I never posted. I did post some things a few weeks ago, but this is it. All the rest. It was a great summer! But, we are ready for one last vacation and then back to school. It’s time. She will have had 3 months of summer, with no camps or big summer programs (one day a week at a play gym), and this child NEEDS to go back to school. She loves it, she misses it, she’s ready.

We’ve called this room the library since we bought the house almost 9 years ago. I think we’ll never shake the name; originally this was the room with all of the books, lots of them. But over time it’s evolved into more of a family room, with H’s toys and playthings taking over. Books have been donated and moved to make room for trains, toys, art supplies. I love that room, and I love its evolution.

So, it turns out I need knee surgery. I injured my knee a few years ago attempting to be an athlete, and I never got it looked at. When it started occasionally flaring up with pain, my GP told me I probably had mild arthritis. So, I’ve just gone on as usual with an extra sore knee when it rains.

January 2016 Outfits

Thing I learned in January: I really like my new Cole Haan red canvas penny loafers. I wore them A LOT last month. My plan of wearing more dresses even though I’m working at home kind of fell through. I wore dresses twice: once just for fun, once for a dinner out. Which was for the 12th anniversary of my first date with Adam. Twelve years! I’m 36, so that is officially 1/3 of my life.

So much snow, all of the snow. Three days with everyone snowed in at the house. I’ve made chili, I’ve made pizza, I’ve cleaned, we’ve played, we’ve napped. Jonas dropped 20-some-odd inches of snow in our neighborhood, with crazy snow drifts taller than Hannah. It’s been cozy and also frustrating to be so off our routine. But, the snow play has been well worth it.
