You guys, this is my 200th post.
Does anyone else get excited over these little milestones?
I can’t believe that I have that much to say, to fill up 200 posts.
I also can’t believe that anyone would be interested in what I have to say, and to the two of you that do, “Thank you.”
I am still trying to make this blog, everything that I want it to be, and every day I’m learning, or trying something new.
I’ll figure it out, or I’ll keep on trying!
Ever since Thanksgiving, I cannot get caught up with life.
With Justine still being under the weather we stayed home. I got the Christmas decorations out, and put up the tree.
Her new Hunger Games: Catching Fire ornament had to be front and center.
We have a tradition where we’ll buy an ornament from every place we visit.
Got to represent Hawaii, since years past we have gone there every year. We won’t be going this year though, which is kind of going to be something that we have to get used to. Justine started going there when she was 2, and has gone every year since. She is now 11.
I can honestly say that every ornament that we have on our tree has a story behind it.
I had some apples that needed to be used ASAP, before they went bad.
I went through my recipes and found this recipe for Beer Waffles with Cinnamon Caramel Apples.
I had a little Winter Spiced Beer that needed to be used as well, so this recipe was perfect.
I chopped up some apples and onions, and sautéed them to go with a baked sweet potato.
Work hasn’t been bad, but it’s been really slow which can make for a very long night. Monday night I ended up going in for the midnight shift, but then having to stay an extra 4 hours Tuesday night. Boo.
I have watched two really good movies.
Has anyone ever seen it? I thought it was really good. Super sad, and it hit a little too close to home. I thought a couple times I was going to end up crying for sure.
I didn’t know anything about this movie, but figured that you could not go wrong with Matthew McConaughey. It was a good movie.
I always feel like I’ve gotten something accomplished when I watch a couple movies, since I don’t watch movies very often.
I’ve been working on getting Christmas presents wrapped and checked off my list.
One present I’m kind of proud of is this First Aid container that I found that was empty.
Once I finished with the tape, I filled it with some essentials I felt that every girl would need.
I just don’t know what to do with the Front Desk written at the top of the container.
I’m hoping that life will slow down just a tad, so I can get my bearings for a moment.
I feel like I’ve constantly been running on E, and I know that for myself, I can’t do that too often or I will get worn down and it will take me that much longer to recuperate.
Speaking of recuperating. Justine is on the mend. She stayed home from school on Monday, but seems to be getting better everyday.
Well, I think I’ve caught you up on my life.
What have you been doing? How has your week been?
What was the last movie you watched?
