November blues

It’s only November 13, but I’ve already got the winter blues. Or something that looks a whole lot like them. I suppose I get like this every year: when the darkness comes so early, and the sun sometimes doesn’t seem to come at all, it’s easy for me to get a little down. I’m not even down, really, just not up. Or, rather, not so motivated. Not motivated to write, to organize, to sew, to train Phoebe, to clean, to shower (my skin gets so dry this time of year!), to finish projects. All I really want to do is surf the Internet looking for house solutions we can’t afford, watch Damages and cuddle with Bear. Maybe I just need to let myself mourn the election results a little longer. Or maybe I need a swift kick in the keester. Until then, let’s look at One Kings Lane

    Yes. I too, have a bit of the blahs. I just try and force myself to do stuck. Like I cleaned a clost yesterday. And going to the gym is ridiculously painful but when I a done I do feel better. For what that is worth……

    Thanks. We just got a Groupon for two for a two-month membership at Snap Fitness down the street. Maybe we’ll activate it this weekend. As much as I’m going to miss her, Molly going to Grandma C.J.’s for the weekend will probably help us kick out some more projects that I’d like to get done before Thanksgiving. The continued lack of storage in our house is driving me batty!

After an extremely long and entertaining (for those over 6) retirement party, my little Bear has crashed with her little bear. . . . I’ve heard through the office grapevine that some peeps don’t think kids should be at events like this. And that’s a legit opinion. But it’s not mine or Aaron’s so I think we should be all good. . . . Retirements are so bittersweet. This one was a doozy. . . . #wisconsin #friends #ourkidcomeswithus #wiscobarkid #bearonbear #workfamily #humility #sincerity #honesty #love #b&w #eyelashes
A series I’m calling An End of a Era: Skye Had a Limit. Truth be told, she ghosted on Skye and the gang maybe two years ago so this era has been over for some time, but I’m just now getting around to offloading it. And in doing so, I was reminded of both how much we accumulated and in how many forms. The Etsy pegdoll form, in which she asked me to give them little matching string scarves; the tiny little ones Molly insisted on painting because she saw it on YouTube; the pirate series; the Patrollers as poofy rubber squishy friends; and so many more. I love how kids get so into these stories and characters, but the merch is overwhelming. Still, I got a teensy emotional clearing it all out. As you may have guessed. . . . . #pawpatrol #cleaninghouse #growingup #etsy #toomuchstuff #growingpains #decluttering #endofanera
The answer when I Googled why I couldn’t see as well. I’m no doctor, but this seems to check out. #googledoc #visionprobs #over40
Somehow this pic disappeared from my feed! I cannot stand for such an injustice. The best breakfast sandwich in Madison must be seen and heralded. Blueberry jalapeño jam?!? Who knew?! @ancorakingst apparently. #madisoneats #sandwiches #breakfastsandwiches #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwichesofwisconsin #sandwichesofmadison #ancoracoffeehouse
