I finally folded the four baskets of laundry that have been taking up space in my living room.
Now I have four baskets of folded laundry taking up space in my living room.
My house is a disaster.
Remember when I posted about not having a monkey? A few of you suggested that I pray about it and see who God brings forward, so I did.
That very day I got a message from a lovely woman from my church that I admire and respect deeply and she was offering to be my monkey. ME!
I reconnected with three friends in the span of one week - each of them had been my monkey at some point in my life. In the same week!!
I'm going to have a whole gang of monkeys now. Or herd. Pack? I don't know what a group of monkeys are called. Sorry.
I started Christmas shopping this week and the children are hoping to get the tree up this weekend. Still not feeling it though. I need to put the stress I'm feeling aside so that I don't spoil the holiday for my little peeps.
I have lots to do today so I'd better get this Five Question Friday on the road!
1. What is your favorite Christmas cookie?
I love a good shortbread cookie. And sugar cookies are good too.
Oh who am I kidding... I love all cookies. I don't support cookie discrimination.
2. What's your favorite holiday movie & why?
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Oh my gosh that movie kills me. There's just so many great lines and physical comedy.
The children and I love to point out houses with lots of Christmas lights or overly decorated. It's always a race to see who can yell "GRISWOLDS!" first.
Which is really funny since the children have never seen the movie. I guess they just think that's what a busy looking house is called.
3. Is there a gift that you bought for your kids that you wish you hadnt after they opened it?
Polly Pockets. Nothing good ever comes from Polly Pockets.
I think they are from the same family as Lego.
4. What is the messiest room in your house right at this moment?
Jordan's bedroom. She's pulled everything out of her drawers and closet looking for something "perfect to wear".
Hello! She's three.
The runners up would be my kitchen and living room. With Matt being so sick and needing all of my attention everything has gone to pot.
5. What is the furthest you have driven for the holidays?
To my grandmother's house, two and half hours away. We used to go every Christmas morning to see her.
Have a great Friday!
