Saturday Evening Post

The week has been one filled with thoughts of friends and family as the holidays approach. I am blessed to have my heart with me and my friends are always a call away. Pull up a chair and grab a drink, we need to chat.

I am already planning our small Thanksgiving dinner, just the two of us. I think I'll take the opportunity to get Shorty to help me in the kitchen with the preparation. The menu has to be simple as a result so that she can use everything that we need, except for the knives. 

She will enjoy it, and this is the month that I begin having larger items for her birthday and Christmas delivered and hide them. If I leave them in the box she won't open it because it is not addressed to her. She is a respectful child.

We will be doing some crafts for the time she is out of school during the holidays, luckily the supply list is short.

Cupcake cups.
Construction paper.
Cardboard tubes.
Tissue Paper.
Pipe Cleaners.

A few odds and ends. Now what are you planning for the holidays?

This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Achiements and Goals

The last year I managed to meet my biggest goal, one that was long overdue and obsessively planned. I moved home from Arkansas and left the stupidity surrounding me behind. Now I am focusing on the next set of goals, and finding that I no longer no where anything is in relation to the objective that I am searching to achieve. Things change in four years but not that much.
There are still animals in my orbit, or rather animals have returned to my orbit since they aren't ours. We get visits from the cat that lives downstairs, who promptly makes himself at home each and every time. Theresa worries about how well he is cared for while he is in our new home visiting.

There were a lot of goals set during the last year and looking back the largest of them was achieved; now it's time to move onto the next set of goals and reevaluation of the ones that weren't achieved to determine if they are worth continuing toward or if they require altering. Planning for them was obsessive, an…
