So much changes over the course of a year. 2017 was no exception. Not only was it a fresh start from 2016, but it ushered in a lot of change and excitement for our family.
After having lots of issues with the battery on my van dying, I got a fancy new battery. It’s okay to be jealous. Thankful to not have any more issues.
Girl Scout Cookie season started. The beginning of the longest two months ever. I love the cookies, but I’m not sad when it ends in March.
Lily got an MRI on her ankle. She has Osteochondritis, but we didn’t know the extent until after the MRI.
I celebrated 10 years at work. I’ve been working with the same company for 10 years. That used to be the norm, but it isn’t so commonplace anymore. I love the girls I work with and adore our clientele. Continue reading →
Today has been incredibly productive, even more so that I had hoped!
We had a fun trip to the library. Lily got the rest of the books she needs to complete her Building Bridges with Books bingo sheet. Navy got some new books about animals and trucks. I got the American Girl Kit Kitteridge series (again).
We also discovered movies at the library, which will save us on rental fees!
Lily and I played post office with some outdated ATM envelopes. They were just going to be trashed, so we are making sure they don’t get shredded in vain.
Lots of cleaning and organizing. It’s time for autumn cleaning! Then, packing…
My fantastic man and his friend came to see about fixing my van. Navy observed and turned on the hose to help. So grateful for wonderful, caring people who are willing to lend a hand to keep my family safe!
I am so impressed with everything that we’ve gotten done and that we even squeezed in some fun!
When we first moved into our house, I painted Lily’s room pink. She wasn’t quite 3 and didn’t have a favorite color yet. So, I picked.
Now, at 5, her favorite color is blue. Everything in her room, from her walls with My Little Pony stickers to her Dora the Explorer sheets, is pink. Her area rug is even predominantly pink, with purple being a close second.
Most likely the next color we paint will be a light brown to make it warm and inviting to sell the house. So, we are trying to personalize Lily’s space, while still working with what’s all ready in place.
The answer the the question: What am I going to do with this glittering scrapbook paper?
