Finally, Something Nice to Say!

Whew! It took me 3 days, but I finally have something nice to say! What a funk I've been in... I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about ;) It happens...

Today was fun. We took the boys out of school early to run up to Missoula for a little shopping. I know, I know it doesn't seem like it was a necessity. But really it was...

Ben has been wearing shoes that are size 12 and he is now wearing a size 2!!! Holy cow!! How and when did this happen? And today it was 7 degrees below zero, when I took the boys to school and the only shoes that Ben had were canvas slip ons from Old Navy (ones that we got this summer...)

I know I know!! I'm a horrible Mom!! I can't believe I let this happen! So I HAD to rectify the situation and if it means they miss a little school, well so be it!

Sigh... it made me feel better, anyway.

Also I got a new book that I have been waiting and waiting for!! It is written by Annie at writers and witches, and words... Oh My! I have been so excited to start this trilogy, but somehow ended up with #2 and #3!! I swear. So I had to wait an extra week for #1, but it came today!! Yea! AND I got a pair of purple, yes, that's purple wool shoes for winter. My feet were FREEZING in this weather!! But now they are toasty =)

Oh it was such a GOOD Monday!

Here's a little color to brighten up YOUR Monday...

Ooh...I think I need some warm slippers to cozy up in this winter! The best thing about the cold weather is that you can get warm and comfortable with a cup of hot coffee, 3 pairs of socks, and a movie. :) lol.

I'll have to look into those books. They look like a good read. :)

Hope you're having a lovely day!
