So the first week of 2017 is almost in the books.
Can you believe it?
We’ll turn around and it will be Easter, then summer, then school will start and BAM, it’ll be Christmas again.
Crazy how quickly life is speeding by and the older I get the faster it goes. I heard someone say once that if you think about it a year in the life of a two year old is half their life. Remember how long it seemed between Christmases when you were little? So I guess it only makes sense that the more years you have the shorter time seems between birthdays Christmases, etc… Or maybe it just makes sense to me.
We got Katie’s passport taken care of.
Can I get a woot woot!!!
We got to the post office at 8:20 a.m. to get in line and we were 3rd for it to open at 10:00. Apparently with the kids being out of school on break the lines have been being crazy long.
We needed to be sure and get this thing taken care of so we can take a trip this summer and she’ll have it for when she studies abroad in the fall.
I’m so relieved to have this marked off my list.
We were both sporting that just rolled out of bed look.
And of course we made a friend standing in line.
I’m thinking I might need to order this top for the spring. It’s looking like the cold shoulder look is still going to be on trend this spring and summer and this one is on sale.
I bought this fleecy top in gray back during the #NSALE last summer and it’s so cozy and the perfect thing for these chilly days. It’s so soft and lightweight but still warm and it’s on sale again and it comes in 6 colors. I wear mine frequently and was shocked I couldn’t come up with a picture of myself wearing it.
Having this crazy girl at home again. I used to be the one holding her and now she can hold me. I told her next time we go to the mall I want her to carry me just like I used to carry her.???
I’ll tell you what is not a favorite…
She goes back to school tomorrow. While I think she’s enjoyed being at home I know she’s ready to get back to her life and friends and I’m happy she feels that way. I wouldn’t have it any other way..?
Now I just have to find a cheap flight to go see her and her brother.
And speaking of Benny
Look at those happy smiles. He’s over in Pennsylvania visiting his girlfriend Erin and they are driving back to school tomorrow. I love seeing these sweet snaps that Erin sends Katie.
It’s supposed to rain here all weekend so we’ll probably spend the weekend getting used to our new normal at home alone again. No, I’m not being mopey about it. We just have to get used to the quiet again. All part of being empty nesters. Having them float in and out of our lives but never our hearts. They’re always in our hearts.
What’s on your agenda for the first weekend of 2017?
Maybe still regrouping from the end of 2016?
Have a great one!
