Long time, no blogging. Oy! It has been a long week, with both good and bad.
The bad... The migraine I had last week threw my whole week's schedule out of whack. I ended up doing all my cleaning, shopping, decorating, and cooking for the party on Friday and Saturday morning. Ginny is pushing a lot of boundaries, trying to assert her independance, but it ends up coming out as naughtiness. Typical two-year-old stuff, but it's taxing. Especially when you're not at your best. And, we haven't heard anything about Beloved's interview. They said they would call either way, but we haven't heard a peep. We're giving up hope on that opportunity.
The good... I managed to get the house cleaned and decorated for Ginny's birthday party. It was fun, even with only three adults (Gramma, Unca D, and one of my Beloved's co-workers). She has a ton of new story books, a couple of toys, and a new outfit. Pippin FINALLY cut his first tooth yesterday! Hopefully the next one doesn't take three months of drooling and fussiness to make it's appearance. Pip has also expanded his palate to include oat cereal and applesauce.

Onto the chit-chat!
Reading? Still the Hobbit *sigh* Migraines aren't really conducive to getting a lot of reading done. Gotta get my butt in gear. I'm no where near my target for the year. Plus, I still haven't gotten to Deathly Hallows, and there are other books on my nightstand just waiting for me, mocking me.
Watching? Once Upon A Time, and then I'm planning on an early night. (I'm recording Downton Abbey Revisited to watch tomorrow)
Listening to? Pippin grunting in his sleep as he sucks on his fingers
Cooking/Baking? Not a lot really. I copped out and used a rotisserie chicken for dinner tonight, last night was frozen pizza. We'll be back on track tomorrow.
Happy you accomplished this week? I posted a bunch of baby things on Kijiji, and I've sold most items already. The baby tub ($5), the bassinet ($25), the bumbo seat ($30), the bouncer ($30). All that's left is the sling I used with Ginny (hoping for $20... originally paid $60 and it's in like new condition).
Looking forward to next week? Crafting! Now that we're past Ginny's birthday party, I feel that I can go all out on my Christmas preparations. And we get our Santa's Choice delivery on Tuesday!! Yippee!
Thankful for today? The fact that my Beloved has a job that does cover almost all our expenses while he continues to search for a better place.
What is the #1 item on your Christmas wishlist?! I don't know. There's a few things I have on my list, but none of them are particularly tops. I need a new slowcooker, and I would like a waffle iron. There are a few books I would like. But there isn't any one thing that I'm pining for this year.
