If I had to describe our lives right now, that’s the phrase I would use to do it.
So many things going on! Wrapping up the end of semester for both TheMan and I. He’s doing great in all his classes, I have one I’ll have to repeat. Which is frustrating. I’ve already set things in motion for a tutor in it next semester though, so fingers crossed it clicks this next time around.
The kids are getting way too big, too fast. Truck has beat himself all to heck the last couple of weeks. Currently, he’s showcasing a bruised jaw, a goose egg, a bit lip and a shiner. Oh, and a lovely bit of road rash from his forehead down to his upper lip. All from separate incidents. TheMan is threatening to buy him a helmet for Christmas.
Miss Question is learning how to spell! It’s a little hit and miss right now, but today the word “got” clicked for her, and she spent the car ride out to Grandma’s singing “I can spell got, it’s G-O-T, it’s my favorite word, because I can spell got, G-O-T!”
So not only can she spell, she’s clearly destined to be a musical genious.
May have finally reached the end of this mess with the GI Bill, thank god. Ron Lecker has been very helpful with the last couple of minor issues that came up, and word is that the payment should hit the bank account any day now!
Starting to gear up for the holidays. May have to actually put effort into decorating, since the kids are now old enough to notice! We did put up the window decals the other day, and they really enjoyed that.
Didn’t really do a lot of decorating when we lived in California. It was hard to get motivated when it was 70 and sunny out, especially when you’re used to snow by November!
And then last year, we were so broke (I don’t know why that surprises us anymore, we’ve spent most of our time together cash-poor), we did the basics, but didn’t go all out.
This year probably won’t see a lot of outdoor decorating, but I do want to make the inside cozy and Christmas-y. Invest in some stuff I can use again and again.
That about sums up where we’re at right now. I apoligize if, over the next couple of weeks, posting becomes sporadic. Literally tons of homework is now coming due!
