January started off with several do-overs (like you do). I recharged my homeschool at the Homeschool Moms’ Winter Summit. I’ve reclaimed the house with some simple chore solutions, and I’ve been better about food choices (most days). Exercise, I’m looking at you next.
On My Nightstand
We headed to Louisiana this month, traveling with my husband as he conducted an honor band clinic and concert. The coolest part of the trip was the premier of his first commissioned piece for band. The kids and I also drove over to Mississippi one day to see the river, tour the Vicksburg Historical Park, and hang out with my buddy Tiffany.
My reading hit the back burner over the last week or so with the return of Downton Abbey Season 4 and Sherlock. Why do they have to happen at the same time?
After dropping The Office at about Season 6 a few years ago, I decided to catch up via Netflix, so that I could watch the last season. I’m so glad I did. We just finished the last season a few weeks ago and loved it. We are starting at Season 1 of Parks and Rec now.
Honestly, I could leave The Frozen Soundtrack on repeat 24/7 at our house, and my kids would still beg for more. Recently, we were talking about the movie at a friend’s house, and they were like, “We didn’t really like it. There was too much singing.” And I said, “How are we friends?”
My husband and I just received the news this month that we are going to be moving to a new house soon. We move about every two years, but this opportunity landed in our laps. We are not leaving our community, and my husband isn’t switching jobs or anything. We are gaining square footage and another bedroom, plus shaving off commute time for Tyler. God is good.
I bought some peppermint oil
and added it to my homemade cleaner
. My house smells nice all the time now. My mother-in-law knitted some finger-less gloves for me. I make excuses to be in cold places, so I can wear them. I found Starbucks Holiday Blend
on clearance at Kroger for $3.00 a bag. I have a new pen crush: Pentel Energel .5 mm point
. My wedding ring got a much needed tune up, and it’s new and sparkly again.
