I came across this act of kindness and thought I’d share the warm fuzzies with you. It just goes to show, you never know when or where your kindness is truly appreciated….. Love Your Neighbor. And her blog is pretty awesome too, if you want to check it out.
We’ve been loving the outdoors lately. Fall is our favorite time of year! The leaves, the air, the hikes and bondfires. It’s wonderful. Dave wants to go camping next weekend, but yikes, it’s just a bit too cold for me. I’ll be using the little ones as an excuse to come home to the nice warm house. I wouldn’t want them getting sick, ya know.
Wow, It’s really Autumn! The trees are putting on their best colors, and the air has that slight chill first thing in the morning. I love it! The kids put up the Halloween decorations already, which means there are one or 2 things hanging on the wall and everything else shoved into a huge spooky mass on top of the fireplace. The OCD in me wants to rearrange it, but the part of me that wins out, is the one who knows that someday I’ll long for my Halloween decorations to be shoved places by little hands just so. So, it stays. And I smile when I look at it.
Hey there! How was your week? Yes, I really want to know.
I’m doing the fall change over of clothing, putting summer stuff up & getting out the long sleeves. These weeks completely suckith. There are clothes all over the house because of course 3 or more of the children are in different sizes than last year, so I have summer piles, winter piles, too small piles, piles that 1 kid has out grown but another kid can wear, and piles that everyone has out grown and needs to go to the resale shop. And I guess it doesn’t help that I detest this task so much that I put it off and it takes me a week or 2 to finish. I’m really thinking we should just move somewhere warm and they can be in shorts year round. That is totally logical and would be completely worth it!
It’s a new week! The weather has been great, kids are back in school, birthday festivities are over and potty training still sucks! Although I don’t know anyone who is all WOO HOO, potty training! Liza is very excited about princess panties but she only has a 2 second window between realizing she needs to go and actually going. And if she’s playing, forget it. There’s nothing like being in the middle of a birthday party, looking out your kitchen window and seeing your 3 year old bare butt pooping in the neighbors yard. All the other neighborhood kids were screaming and running. I had to go over with a plastic bag and TRY to rationalize to the neighbors. There really is no rationalizing that.
