Well, hello there!

The craziness isn't over yet, I'm shooting for December 1.  But, in the last few weeks I've been able to catch my breath in little snatches.

Therefore, I've been Instagramming the bejeezus outta' my life.  And, lucky for you I have found time to share the Instayummy with you!

Would you look at all this cray-cray! I found it clearing out boxes
a) I cannot believe I used to wear this stuff
b) I cannot believe that I saved it 

Don't Blink! I bought a new ornament for our Christmas tree. Way excited!

I finally bought something (from a craft show) to hang on the bathroom wall
AND I hung it up - w00t!

In an effort to get ahead of the game I've been addressing Christmas cards,
only 5 a night, while dinner is in the oven

Entry into Creepy Town
Underneath the addition on the house is a basement only accessible
via a trapdoor in the floor of the library.
The well tanks are down there and my Beloved had to go down there
to turn of the water to the outside hose bibs.
I tried valiantly not to panic while he was down there.

Dutch Baby Pancakes - my newest addiction

Flavia (L) & Flint (R) turned one!
Happy Birthday babies!

I managed a little Christmas knitting finally - yaay!

Nike has been doing really, really good.
We are all happy.

Let's Talk

So in the real world outside of my knitting, homesteading, blogging, voracious readering, Doctor Who watching empire I have a job.  I mean in addition to being the most spectacular wife my Beloved has ever had (I am fairly positive that I am the only wife he's ever had) and the Best Thea Poppy ever in the history of Thea Poppy's.

Me.  Every morning lately.

So, yeah, job.  I am a "Physician Scheduling Manager" for a a fairly large group of doctors.  And that means the my life gets cray-cray at certain points of the year.

Like now.

Which of course means that fun things like:

Blogging - however one could argue this

Eww, wait? Are those ALL of my hobbies? Ummm... anyway, those things are put on the back burner ( insert cute joke about the burner pans needing to be cleaned too here  ).

So on top of working 55-60 hours a week, I have, you know, wifely things like "cleaning the whole entire house" and "making dinner every single night" and the occasional "try to have a life and not go to bed at 7 pm on a Saturday night"... you get it.  It's all those other things that we have to do as an adult to keep our households running while not going utterly insane.

Which just makes me:

So I will continue to suck down coffee like it's my lifeblood and when I get through with this Call Schedule - I'll try to resume my normal blogging (which as we all know if spotty at best).

Fare thee well until next I find a spare moment!
