We are about to embark upon the last week of October. This week is a short work week for me as I have Thursday and Friday off since my mom will be coming into town for the weekend! I kind of look at the end of October as being the end of fall. We don’t switch right into winter in November, but here in Wisconsin it tends to get unpredictable once November rolls around.
So, with that in mind here are some thoughts for the last week of the “season” or at least my definition of the season.
I will no longer read only blogs written by stay at home moms. It’s starting to drive me crazy because I think of all the things I could be doing if I stayed at home with Indie. I need to move on and realize that’s not my life, it will probably never be my life and I need to make the most and best of the life I have. If anyone has any good blog suggestions, let me know!
This winter I am considering learning how to cross country ski. I’m thinking I’ll just pop Indie into the hiking back pack and obviously we won’t spend too long out and about, but I thought it might be fun and get us out of the house for the winter.
I plan to use our inside time this winter to actually organize the house. I know I’ve been working on this one for quite a while, but we’ve made some progress with the general living areas and just need to focus on some of the storage areas. I think we’ll be much happier if we can make this happen.
I will actually be at home with my family when I am at home. Work stays at the office and needs to invade my personal life less. We’ll see how that goes! But I do need a reminder that this is an appropriate balance. Too much work is not an appropriate balance.
Happy end of fall to you all!
