…this morning as I was getting ready for the day…but I have been at the computer a while now and can’t remember most of them.
It would be pretty bad if I needed a recorder with me through the day to remind myself of things I wanted to post, wouldn’t it? I do have a file on my computer where I jot ideas for posts, but nothing portable.
Oh, well…if it is important it will come back to me.
(I find myself saying that all too much these days!!)
It has been that kind of morning — a lot of thoughts flying around and I need to sit down and make a game plan for the week. Last week was a blur of busy-ness and then sickness, and I feel like I am coming out of a fog and need to get my bearings. I am feeling much better now (thanks for praying!) Jim made it home safely but feels a little draggy with zipping back and forth around the globe last week, plus he is either coming down with what I had or perhaps all the different things he ate (fish stomach soup and eel, to name a couple) are catching up with him (I am glad I did not go on this trip — I don’t think I could have eaten much of what was there and wouldn’t have wanted to offend.) We enjoyed looking at the photos he took, watching some videos of the trip, and hearing his stories Saturday night — plus exploring the things he brought back! (More on that Friday!)
I CANNOT believe we’re past the middle of November already. It took me a while to get into autumn, but now it seems to be flying too fast. Jim and I were discussing Thanksgiving plans yesterday and whether we wanted to get the Christmas tree that weekend. We don’t usually — that seems too soon to both of us — but everyone will be here and out of school/off work (except maybe Jason — he just started at Subway) — so that may be the best time.
Then Jason asked if he could spend Christmas with his girlfriend in OK because that is the only time during their Christmas break her mother has off work. I was thinking this would likely be his last Christmas at home…but now it will be his first one away. 😦 Of course, all parents know this kind of thing is coming…but it is still sad. His girlfriend has been with us last Thanksgiving and will be this one, too, so I guess it’s our turn — the first of many….:(
I’d better change the subject!
One thing I did want to mention was a couple of contests and giveaways.
I saw at Linda’s 2nd Cup of Coffee (LOVE the coffee dispenser in her header!) that another coffee-loving Linda at Mocha with Linda is giving away several books over the next few weeks. If you read here regularly, you know I am a book lover, and I know many of you are as well, so feel free to click the button and check it out.
Then the ladies at 5 Minutes For Mom are always up to something, and this time it is a series of giveaways from now through Nov. 25 with several big prizes along the way, including a Wi-Fi Epson Artisan 800 Printer and a $100.00 gift card to Sears. Click this button as well to find out more. I have my eye on a couple of things already! Despite the blog name, I don’t think you have to be a mom to enter.
And with forgetting half of what I was going to say, I still managed a long wordy post. 😳 Have a good day!
