My calendar is full

So it's only the first of November and my calendar is already jammed packed. This past weekend was the only weekend during the month where we didn't have something planned.

So I did what any normal person would do. I held a marathon cleaning session. It took me all day to clean the house and do the laundry. Which by the way I never did finish the laundry.

I have also come to the conclusion that I am in desperate need of a laundry fairy! So if any of you out there have one would you please send her my way.

Any way so the house is clean and I love it. In the weeks to come I will be attending a college football game and going to a wedding so the house must stay this way for the next two weeks.

Do you boys, all three of you hear me? Clean for the next two weeks. I know it's a long shot but hey can't blame a mom for trying.

And then it's Thanksgiving. I know seriously, Thanksgiving. And believe it or not I already have something on the calendar for December 4th and 5th.

So even though it's the first of November it seems as if the holiday season is upon us. I went into Hobby Lobby and the mall and it's all decked out for Christmas complete with music.

I really want to enjoy the season this year. This time last year we weren't even in our house. Remember this.

I think I am going to try my best to slow things down a bit and just relax and enjoy this time. And I hope you do to.

Merry Thanksgiving and Happy Christmas!

I can come to your house!! Every year I tell myself the same thing, that I am going to shop early and "chill" out and enjoy the holidays! Every year I am crazed up until the last minute!!

This year I mean it!!! I am going to "ENJOY"!!

Hve a great week!
