That phrase always makes me think of the magician from Frosty the Snowman. . .not a very nice fellow. . .but that phrase also typifies what our lives have been like lately. . .okay, not so nice either, but not bad either. Just busy. . .busy. . .busy!!!
Pat has been hunting most of this month, so he hasn't been home a lot. This has left most of the household chores--cleaning, shopping, laundry, picking up--to me as well as looking after Little Man. It's not a bad job, but it does make a lady tired at the end of the day. I almost always find myself having to take a deep breath and count to ten so I don't get snappy with Aidan. It's not his fault Mama's tired and cranky!
Last night we went over to Costco to stock up on supplies for Thanksgiving. It wasn't fun going there with a 4 1/2 year old little boy who wanted to play with the drum set he found in one of the aisles, but it certainly was not crowded!! We got so much checked off the list by going there, I only have a small list for the actual grocery store--woo hoo!!
But, we forgot to call Grandma and sing her happy birthday!! Yesterday was her birthday and I had it in my head to have Aidan call when we got home. But then I started putting things away and then we had dinner and then bath and then Backyardigans was on and then bed. . .and I forgot. We'll have to call today. A day late, but we really didn't forget!!
Meanwhile, I have been making some new curtains for our family room and kitchen. They are almost done and I hope to hang them on Saturday. The present ones have been up for 11 years and are looking sad, faded, and really tired. It will be nice to have something fresh and new up before the holidays get rolling!
My Dad arrives on Monday afternoon for the week. It will be good to see him. We haven't seen him for about a year and a half, so I know he'll see a huge change in Aidan. Fun!!
Finally, Pat has also been helping his sister look for hay for her Alpacas. I think he's found some that she'll be able to pick up next week when she and her husband come up for Thanksgiving. They've had a terrible drought and can't find hay anywhere.
Also, I saw on Facebook the other day, that my sister-in-law invited her cousin to come up here for Christmas. . .guess I'll have a houseful for Christmas again. . .sigh.
Pictures of the curtains and of Aidan, of course, to come this weekend. I just can't get them uploaded right now because I'm busy. . .busy. . .busy!!! : ) Life is good.
