End of October…wow, did I really just type that?
It has been a while since I did a Monday Meanderings post, where I
ramble talk about what is currently going on in this neck of the woods. A break from the norm is always nice
In “I-didn’t-see-that-coming” news, I don’t know if you guys know this or not but Oregon does not have sales tax, and in the short time I lived there, I got used to that fun fact pretty quickly 😉 So it has been a bit of a “sticker shock” of sorts being back home here in California when I purchase something, and the total is not the same as the subtotal. #notinoregonanymore
My kiddo is in kindergarten and me…well, I am all over the place. I can’t seem to get into a routine or a schedule and she has homework (yes, kindergarteners have homework), and with this, that, and the other… I have just honestly been overwhelmed. Couple all that with all the things/items/tasks that I have been doing since we moved back and I am like Calgon come take me away!! See, I am a person that craves routine. I am not a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of person, and never have been. So I feel like I have been spinning like a tornado and honestly, I just want to land somewhere. I know life will calm down in a manner of speaking and I will get on some semblance of a schedule, but until then, the spinning continues… But I did purchase a planner that will help with not forgetting everything all the time so that is a start. And even though its says 2016 on the front, the planner began with this past summer, so I can use it right away
We went to the pumpkin patch and I currently have pumpkins in my kitchen waiting to be carved into jack-o-lanterns
I don’t want to get into politics or anything (no really, I don’t), but can I just say how tired I am of who is running, who is not running, who said what, who didn’t say what…I mean November 2016 is sooooooo far away, and I am already burnt out on it all. And we still have a year to go…sigh…
Hoping to finally go the library this week and get a library card here in my new town. I’ve been so busy, I haven’t even had a chance to do that and for a huge bookworm like me, that is truly a travesty! 😉
Wanted to give a shout-out to my friend Laurie over at Fruclassity. I really liked her post Does Less “Stuff” Equal Less Busy. Good food for thought and also her post mentions Laura Ingalls Wilder, and that is always a good thing!
I am really, really glad that Halloween is finally this weekend and am totally looking forward to taking my girl trick-or-treating
What is going on with you guys? I want to know! Also, come hang out with me on Instagram Would love to say hi to you!
