November has been a busy month at my home & quiet month so far on my blog - I think the 2 are related!
This past weekend we went away as a family - we haven't all gone away and just hung out in a while - it was nice! Nothing extravagant or exotic, just north to maine. We stayed cheap, ate well and relaxed.
We did a little Christmas shopping and I have the items squirreled away from the kids so they should be a surprise. Of course I was able to score the obligatory Christmas Jammie's for them both - thankfully they were on sale - tried finding slippers at the bean outlet - no luck in their sizes, I will look elsewhere because their feet are still growing - I don't want to spend a bundle of cash on them. I would spend 30-40 for mine or hubby's because we won't outgrow them before winter is through.
This week plans to be a busy one - kids have a field trip tomorrow (I'm a chaperone for it), each day one or both hubby and I have meetings in the evenings, Wednesday off from school - big research project due for the youngest child on Friday, and a fundraiser on the weekend. I will have to spend the last bits of the weekend prepping for all that will come at me. Friday alone I have a meeting with the social worker in town about a project the youngest is involved followed by running to East Hartford for another meeting then picking the kids up at school by 2pm. Basically - I have to menu plan or it will be a cereal week.
