Kids were supposed to be with the Ex this weekend, but instead they’re with me. It’s fine as I didn’t have plans anyway, but still. It would be nice to be on a schedule that I can count on. But in the meantime, I’m enjoying them being home. It’s a bit chilly out so it feels like fall, but not winter which is great. Sun shining, cool air and I’m good.
I’m looking around the house to see where I’m going to put the Christmas tree. No, I’m not rushing Christmas, but I’m in a new place and need to change it all up a bit. I don’t think I’m hosting Thanksgiving so really, it’s all about what I want to do – well, what the kids and I want to do! What a refreshing change for me!
So, I ended up doing a little decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving combined. Orange leaves are on the mantle and the turkey decorations are up. There are just a few of them anyway. I wanted to be lazy and just not do it since I’m not having company, but then that’s not me, so I dug in the boxes and pulled out a few things to brighten up the place. You know, I moved awhile back and I’m in a rental, so I’m not about to go full on decorating because I can’t find a lot of my stuff because it’s packed up. I’m crazy about Christmas though so I think that will be my digging in boxes to pull out what makes me happy. Because we had a lot of decorations that the ex’s family gave us that I displayed, but didn’t love. I was only being nice. But now that I don’t have any plans to have any of the herd here, I can donate that stuff. Really, I gave EX most of it and he ditched it in the dumpster (if his mom only knew! haha) but I do have a few things that I saved because they had a decent memory to them. Onto a new chapter!
I think I’ll take a walk this afternoon. It’s just such a perfect fall day. I hope you have a great weekend and that your weather cooperates too!
