The Call Of Netflix...

It happens to the best of us ... 
I have found myself night after night losing touch with the world and sitting for hours on end watching show after show. May is always like clock work down for the count between 6/7pm leaving the night for random things that need to get done and shows to be watched. 
I find that now is the time to watch them because there is not another soul in the house wanting the remote... 
The Netflix app is downloaded on my phone,iPad and Xbox! Some nights I am in the living room but most nights the IPad tends to be in the office with me as I craft and get things done on the computer. So... What am I watching you ask!? 

This last one is called "Call of the Midwives" it's a BBC show and has about 3 seasons. Takes place in an era of time where the midwives tend to pregnant wives in their home with an at home birth. Something about babies and there call for duty makes me love watching this show. 

I have also kept up with a few reality shows on Bravo... But that's another post in itself! ;)

The Week Has Ended...

I Every year I get one week off of work nearing Christmas. I am beyond grateful for a week of organizing, cleaning and catching up on things that seem to go un-done. 

However that week has officially come to an end tonight. Tomorrow I will wake up early and head back into the classroom for some cleaning. I am sure my ratio will be a little lower than normal but I am honestly not ready. 

I have been able to  watch TV, stay locked in wearing my sweat pants and spend quality time with May. I feel that all my time with her is quality but when you work and she is in school... we tend to only get a few hours before it is time for bed. 

Today we finished the day off watching the Packers take home a victory over the Lions, Chatting with Mike via Facetime and Dancing the night away with Laurie Berkner on the ipad. 

We even spent lunch with an amazing little group and ventured into the play area. 

I am praying for cold coffee int he AM to help me get through the day. Most of my nights I have been up since 2-3am crafting and watching Netflix...

Christmas 2014

This year its just a little different. 
The stockings were hung, the tree was up..and we went to see Santa in November .. to allow for everyone to take part together in our home. 
 We did everything like we normally do every year but something was just missing... and although that something was missing... we made do...

We spread Christmas cheer and ended our night holding one another tight. Celebrating the blessings that the Lord has given us ....

December 1st!

It is beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS!!!

December 1st marked the first day of Mike's going away and ... the first day of a few of our activities for the busy month.

Today I was by far tired... I woke up feeling like bricks. Thank the Lord I found the strength to prep us for the day the night before.

We headed to a long day at work.

Then shortly after work we dressed and headed out the door for our local Christmas Parade. YES!!! on a Monday night the parade started at 6:30 and ended at 9:00. I had one tired screaming child who was ready to sleep. I am more and more Thankful for my derby team and my amazing friends who always seem to become May's second parents.

on a high note we are one day down and our ELF made an appearance today!  Silly ELF!!! GO PACK GO!
