Life Update: January 3, 2020

Whew! What a time we’ve had over the past few weeks! I apologize for not getting to post anything on a regular basis. A lot of the recipes that have posted had been typed up prior to November, when my oldest daughter left for Kansas, and then scheduled to post later… good thing I did that or I wouldn’t have had the energy to do anything all month!

I’m having an OK morning so far so I wanted to go ahead and try to type up a quick post to fill everyone in on what has been going on around here! So just in case, you missed some of our most recent news, here is a quick update:

  • Mr. Awesome and I got married on Christmas Day with a surprise wedding!
  • We also officially announced that there will be a new addition to our family later this year!

A Christmas To Remember!

So we did get to celebrate Christmas in our new house even though we can’t officially move in yet and we had no power… or heat! We set the tree up and decorated it on Saturday and everyone had a lot of fun helping.

 After the decorating was done it was time to kick the kids out of the house until Christmas as I needed a gift wrapping station. We had all helped to bring in a lot of the boxes I had in the shed… there may still be a gift or two hidden in there somewhere!

That was a lot of work to get all of those gifts wrapped and taken care of as I hadn’t wrapped the first gift, other than a couple that we took to a party, and there were a lot of boxes!

Life Update and A Quick House Tour

So I’ve been trying to get this quick video tour to upload but our internet has been so crappy… well you know how our internet it so it has taken me longer than expected to get this out to you. I’ve also been feeling a bit under the weather and had an ER visit on Sunday where I found out that my potassium was low… sigh… if it isn’t one thing it is another, right? The video tour will be down below but I’ll go ahead and give up a little update on the house since our last update. Continue reading “Life Update and A Quick House Tour”

I’ve been dreaming of a …

I know a lot of people have been dreaming of a white Christmas but not me! I’ve been dreaming of a big dump truck. Well, actually several big dump trucks full of DIRT!

I know once the dirt gets here it shouldn’t be too much longer before our house finally arrives. If you’ve been following along with our ‘Series of Unexpected Events‘ posts then you know that we’ve been waiting for a while now. Ever since learning that the dirt should be coming within the week, I’ve been dreaming and daydreaming about dump trucks. I’ve been a little under the weather so every time I happen to doze off I wake up thinking that I hear a dump truck but every time I walk out the door to see that there is nothing sight.

Life Update: A Full Moon, Spongebob, and A B&E (with permission)

I was looking back through my posts to see when our last update was and if you don’t include A Series of Unexpected Events, Part 2, and Part 3 then I believe it would’ve been Life Update: A Jacuzzi, A Boy’s Night out, And Why We Don’t ‘Do’ Halloween which seems like it was forever ago.

Monday

I know last week I posted 35+ Freezer Meals In One Day! where I did give a couple of updates like Ms. Bella’s birthday:

35+ Freezer Meals In One Day!

I had to do my grocery shopping this past weekend and our internet was DOWN! This meant that I needed to physically go into the store and push the buggy down the aisles… pure TORTURE, right? Well, maybe it doesn’t seem that bad but I have been spoiled by the Walmart Grocery Pickup.

I did survive and I posted a picture of my overflowing buggy on my Instagram that evening and had a contest for the person who could most closely guess how much I spent. The winner will be receiving a Walmart eGift card for $10.00! Continue reading “35+ Freezer Meals In One Day!”

How we use these lesson plans:

Our school week is usually completed in 4 days. We use a Loop Schedule where we work for a designated amount of time on each subject before moving on to the next. After their work is completed for the day the kids are allowed to have independent studies were they can study whatever their little hearts desired.

Our 5th day is an optional day that we use to complete unfinished work or for other activities as we choose.
