Happy December!

I have a minute while I use my nebulizer, so it seems like a good time to post.

We had a very quiet and low-key Thanksgiving, and are now overwhelmed by "holiday stuff". There are packages to send (I'm grateful for online ordering and the option of having things shipped directly, but I have a couple to mail myself anyway), a parade to be in, pictures to take, cards to mail, a concert to attend, friends to bid farewell (sniffle), field trips to take, treats and memories to make, and a special diet to maintain (groan). Oh, and then there's the cleaning and decorating.

It makes me want to hide out in bed under my new quilt and read the following giant stack of books on my dresser:

Training Hearts, Teaching Minds
Parenting With Love and Logic
Senior High: A Home Designed Form+U+LA
The Business of Heaven
Created to Be His Help Meet
Love and Respect

But no... gotta run!


  1. I was just looking at last year's picture of the kids and Manoah. I have a progression of "Heidi's Kids" pictures on my fridge and got a chuckle out of revisiting "The Armstrong children doing American Gothic without telling Mom." lol

    Praying you get underwhelmed real soon, (((Heidi))). :-)

  2. Thinking our Christmas is going to be VERY low key this year - and thinking I'm going to get a lot of reading done while we're on our ski trip. (I'm NOT skiing this year - just want to veg out back at the cabin!)
