Weekend Coffee Share: December 3, 2016

Evening! I would’ve posted this much earlier today but honestly I’ve been lazy yet extremely productive at the same time. I’m working around the house in spurts today! The kitchen is mostly finished and I’ve done a good amount of laundry. My daughters have helped me clean up the living room and then they cleaned up their bedroom. They’re actually playing together right now while pausing periodically to watch whatever cartoon is playing on the television.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that according to the weather app on my phone, it’s 45 degrees outside but I wouldn’t know because I haven’t been outside at all today. I don’t particularly care to be freezing when I could be snuggled up warm on the couch with my huge, fluffy blanket. 😮

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have been watching Britain’s Got Talent all day long and I cried at two songs that were sang… 😮 Why am I such a baby when it comes to the words of others? There were a few really beautiful songs.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that the Mister and I got a notice on our apartment door yesterday saying that our second year at the apartment is approaching with a deadline to either sign another lease for next year or to give notice that we will be vacating. The apartments are also raising our rent whether we sign a yearly lease or if we pay month to month. Now we have about three weeks to make up our minds. Talk about pressure… 😮

If we were having coffee I would tell you that the approaching apartment lease renewal deadline isn’t the only deadline making me nervous. With Christmas break approaching I now have to find a daycare for the girls to go to and everywhere I have called is wanting to charge me an ungodly amount of money for just two weeks of vacation. I’m talking $500+. For two weeks… 😮

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I haven’t been very productive in the art challenge, but I’ve stayed fairly consistent with the #Blogidays challenge, which I’m pretty happy about. The #Blogidays challenge is basically a continuation of #NaBloPoMo challenge which was blogging every day in November. The #Blogidays challenge is blogging every day in December! I’m proud of myself for staying as consistent as I have!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I wish I could stick around and chat some more, alas I have a screaming five year old and a house to clean. 😞 I hope everyone is having a productive weekend and I’m going to try to catch up on posts momentarily. Have a lovely rest of the weekend!

 

If We Were Having Coffee on the 27th of November

Good morning Blogger Friends! For once I’ve actually got a pot of coffee brewing as I write this, courtesy of my Mister! This is a first! 😄 I hope everyone had a lovely week and is having a wonderful close to the weekend!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that the Mister, myself, our children, and his parents went to Oklahoma on Wednesday to his family’s house for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful! Everyone was so nice to the kids and I and the food was wonderful! This is only the second time that the kids and I have been out there but it felt like we’ve been going out there every year for a lifetime. I love it when families click like that.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that the weather is confusing right now in Texas. In the morning it’s in the 50’s, in the afternoon it’s in the 70’s and then we’re back down to the 50’s in the evening. I’m dreading the icy weather that is approaching. People in Texas already drive like jerks and it’s even worse in the winter.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I bought a box of Christmas cards and then realized that I have no one to send them to. 😮 But I love Christmas cards. I suppose I will give one to the handful of work friends that I have, send one to my parents in Florida and of course to the Mister’s parents. And then I’ll still have twenty-two Christmas cards sitting in a box to be forgotten about. I’ll end up buying a new box next year. It was only $3 for a box of thirty cards though so I won’t complain. 😄

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have abandoned my NanoWrimo novel but that I have been posting faithfully for NanoPoblano which is National Blog Posting Month. I do believe the group of people who have been participating in this challenge, or at least a large number of them, have decided to carry the challenge on into December, which I’m excited about! These challenges keep me posting every day and the inspiration flows more frequently and abundantly.

I hope everyone had a lovely week last week and that you got a lot of writing done! I’m going to attempt to link up my post now and I’ve never done this before so please do cross your fingers for me! 😄
