NOVEMBER Currently

Can you believe it is November? The first marking period is OVER! This is going too fast! I don't know where the time goes! So much more to do and hopefully enough time! 

Listening - Football! This is really the first Sunday all season that we have sat down and watched some games! We planned on making some dinner tonight - wonder if we will get off the couch and do that! LOL 

LOVING - Really! I am LOVING being a empty nester! Do you know how many grocery bags we used today???? FOUR! That's it! FOUR! It will last us all week too! And there was no junk in it! There was fruit that we will eat! I do LOVE and MISS my "babies" while they are in college. They are good though! They are doing their thing. They are getting ready to fly! That's how we raised them! They know they have a home whenever they need it. But I we are really enjoying being just us too. 

Thinking - Well, that was the plan all week in my head! HAHAHA Hubby had plans yesterday and I thought it would be a good day. Well, I woke up in a quiet empty house. I just stayed here all day and got stuff done. I did do report cards! I didn't have tons to put away. I actually want to clean out some closets. After cleaning out my mom's house, I am all about down sizing. I know I have stuff that I don't need any more. I know I have stuff that I will never use again. IT'S OLD! It's going out - soon, some day, whenever I get in there! LOL

Wanting to get my mom's house done. We have most of it done. Now what to do with the rest of the stuff! Trying to find a good home for everything. We don't have to rush but I want to finish. It will get done. A little at a time. WE are getting there! Thank goodness for my brother and sister- in-law helping! 

Needing - seriously! NOTHING! I have way too much here! I am going to start cleaning this house out when I finish with her house! It's all just stuff! I am done with stuff! My 50's are going to be about cleaning out and simplifying!  

Yummy - well Thanksgiving dinner! All of it is YUMMY! I did always like my mom's sausage stuffing. It has sage in it. YUMMY! I love the stuffing in the bird too! We'll see what we do for Thanksgiving. 

Oh, now I want a little cooler weather for November! 70's is too warm for November! I put the AC on! I am thankful it's not freezing, but I would like some fall weather! Be good people! Enjoy! November will go fast! Parent conferences and Thanksgiving break! Woo hoo! It will be December before we know it! 


  1. I feel encouraged that you are enjoying being an empty nester! I am nowhere near being close to that just yet - my twins are only 4, but I am already dreading the day they leave home!
    We are watching football at our house, too! Go Cowboys! What is your team?
    And, I love that you want for nothing. In a country where we long for material possessions, it is important to realize that we really don't want or need for anything, really.

  2. I'm so glad to hear you say that you love your empty nest! My children are 12 and almost 7. I adore them and am in no hurry for them to go anywhere, but time alone with my hubby and dates whenever we want? Wahoo! That'll be a perk. My dad used to make sausage stuffing with celery and apples. It had A LOT of butter, but boy was it tasty! Have a wonderful week! Go on a date just because you can! :)

  3. Completely agree with you on simplifying! My plan over Christmas break is to really purge some things. For teachers I think it's especially hard because you might be able to use it for a project one day-but eventually it's just too much stuff!

  4. I'm close to being an empty nester myself. I miss those younger years with them though.
