….is exactly what I have planned for this post. 😆
Jake leaves on Tuesday morning at 3AM for Texas. He’ll be gone just a few days shy of three weeks. I am really not looking forward to this. At all. If you think about it at all, would you pray for my sanity and energy? Thanks. 😉
Thinking about going to the Pumpkin Patch this weekend for the obligatory pumpkin patch pictures. 😆 We don’t need any pumpkins, but it might be fun for the kids. Depends on how cold it is I guess. We bought five small pumpkins at the grocery store and we intend on painting them. Normally Jake carves a few huge pumpkins with the boys but since he won’t be here for Halloween we’re skipping that. I am NOT a fan of carving pumpkins. Ew. 😕
I am loving my new haircut. Well, I guess it’s not “new” anymore. It’s been two weeks. It’s super easy and off my neck. Makes my happy.
I laid out everything I’ve gotten for the boys for Christmas so far and then divided it up into seperate baskets. I lined the baskets on the top shelf in my closet so when I buy something in the future, I can just toss it into the appropriate basket. That way I can see who has what and who still needs what. 😉 I think for their big present we are going to get them something like THIS for the playroom. I thought about scooters but then decided against it because they won’t be able to use them here until next summer (I think I’ll get them those at Easter next year instead). This way with the bounce house they can burn off all their energy inside this winter. I’ll also get the balls for ball pits and put in there. 😀
Jake and I are going to start working at church in the nursery. I’m kind of excited about the opportunity to get involved so soon. We need to fill out paper for a background check and have an “interview” first but that should all be pretty easy. Church called us actually since we have kids in class and they are trying to round up people to help. 😉
I STILL need to order my birth certificate so I can get my ND drivers license. 😐 My Oregon one expired last year in NOVEMBER and I have until my birthday this year to get a ND one without taking a drivers test. If I let it lapse over a year, I have to retake the test. ugh.
Oh! Something Jake and I have talked about for Thanksgiving this year…. he suggested it actually which was funny b/c my mom and I had been talking about it and I hadn’t told him yet. We were thinking about having an “Open House” kind of thing for Thanksgiving for everyone out at his work who isn’t going to be able to go home for the holiday. Thanksgiving is hard to get off for military without taking a lot of leave, and most people want to save up their leave for Christmas. I’m excited at the idea of it and hope we can pull it off. 🙂
This weekend we’re not doing much, other than hanging out a lot before Jake leaves. Getting some walks to the park in there, some movie time, and pumpkin painting time. I’m going to miss him and I know they boys will too. 😦
What are your plans for the weekend? Anything fun?
