Well... Let’s Rewind

Remember the one post that I did back in December with all my wishes for 2020? Well... that’s out the window! Due to Covid-19 everyone’s year and life has completely changed. What a garbage year this has been. No travel, everyone sick and if their not their afraid of getting sick, not seeing friends and family in person. What a skid mark in the underwear! 

One of my goals this year was to blog more but clearly that went out the window too with everyone else’s hopes and dreams for the year. We typically would have been on a vacation by now but that didn’t happen in June because of Covid. I’m still bitter...

Between teleworking and watching my 2.5 year old all day, I’m beat. I’m also making face masks like a crazy monkey all night long once he goes to bed. While this year has been completely crazy and nothing like a normal year, I am thankful that I’ve got to spend so much time with my Presley. I didn’t realize how much he really needed me till I started staying home during the pandemic. He’s talking so much more, playing and even finally started eating a little bit more. The one thing that really suck though is not seeing my mom. We usually see her in June, November and December. We didn’t see her in June and unless there’s a vaccine we won’t be able to travel cross country and see her in November and December for the holidays. For us it’s just too risky to take multiple airplanes and expose are ourselves to that many people and then expose my mom once we get there. 

I’m really hoping something will turn around and we can salvage the holidays. I’m trying to mentally prepare but it’s hard. 

In other news, Presley is obsessed with watching a video on Niagara Falls and Greenland. When everything is over, you can guess what trip we are planning. 

I just thought I’d check in with everyone and let you guys know I’m still here. Still living life and trying to plot my way home for the holidays. Stay safe!

Entering the Roaring 20s

Am I the only person who’s sitting around trying to wrap their mind around the fact that it’s now 2020? I feel like it was just yesterday that everyone was running around, freaking out that computers were going to crash going into 2000. Now we are out of the teens and it’s the roaring 20s. It's crazy to me to think that my son could see the year 2100. I'll be long gone but hey if they ever get that freezing thing right... I could be back. 

It's a new year. It's a whole new decade! I've told you all about my goals. I've got my plans ready and I've got my dreams. I've already been working hard on my ornament side business. I've been working hard to get our new house in order.

Did I tell you that we moved? Yep. The house we built 4 years ago... we sold it. I hated it. I rarely showed any photos of our house on here because I just wasn't into it. It was all new, super huge and spacious but  I wasn't a fan of the "great" neighborhood and those really nice floors... (hard to clean and cold).  The super huge kitchen? Hated it, it was too dark. So we got out of there. We sold it and bought a house that we really liked. It isn't a cookie cutter home, it's in a great neighborhood close to things we love with mature trees and a street Presley could actually play on. 

We've been there since September and I have yet to unpack the garage and half of one bedroom. We went right into the holidays so now it's time to organize. I've been doing that while I pack the Christmas décor up and it makes me feel great! It may not look obvious to my husband but I'm cleaning, maximizing the space and it makes me happy! I'm hoping to have the house completely unpacked and organized by the end of January. I've almost got all the Christmas down and that right there will allow me to finish everything else. I've got a Christmas village up in one room but Valentines Day décor on our mantle already...

So while I'm over here trying to get organized, what's something you are working on as we enter the roaring new 20s?
