Yay for Saturday. It has been a really busy month, and things seem to get more busy as we get closer to the holidays. Jim was out of town for work all last week. Let me tell you, being a single parent sucks. I’m not sure how many of you do that all the time. I, probably mistakenly, think I do most of the work around the home, but it makes you appreciate what the other parent does when you don’t have that extra set of hands around. I’ve spent this week trying to catch up.
We got our ski passes and new boots and skis for our daughter at a ski swap last weekend. I spent $135 on equipment and made $157 from selling some of our old stuff. I’ll take a profit any day. Bring on the snow! (but only after we get home from our upcoming travels)
I am super excited that we get to indulge our former 1990’s selves this week when Jim and I travel to Ph0enix to see Pearl Jam, the best band ever. We are leaving the daughter with a friend. We’ve left her with Grandma before, but never with a non-family member overnight. I wonder what I might have to bribe her with to be good? I’m guessing a Pearl Jam t-shirt won’t cut it.
The following week, I have to work out of town the two days before Thanksgiving and then we are off to Denver to visit relatives. I am toying with taking the week off from blogging, but we’ll see if the Type A personality will let me. What are your plans for the rest of November?
I was actually with it enough to be included in three carnivals in recent weeks. Thanks!
