we got our tree today! It took some talking into for Garit. He likes to wait until the last minute to put it up. He says it’s going to die and catch on fire. Bahahaha
we went to our usual tree farm.
we sifted through the trees where we look every year, but the pickings seemed to be few. And crooked. So we (I) opted for a transported tree. Is that what they are called? They didn’t grow there.
we ran into one of hubby’s High school buddies and we mentioned how this was he first year without meltdowns, but mentioned it was still early. Haaa
this was the first year we explored the farm. The kids were old enough/we had enough energy.
made them sit for an obligatory photo.
I was here, too.
There is the cow’s pen.
Headed towards the horses.
it was close to meltdown city by this point. hungry. Tired. Overstimulated. Yay!
then hubby decided today was the day to get rid of all the baby stuff we had saved for a “what if we decided to have another” and I wasn’t mentally prepared. It’s turned out to be an emotionally draining day. I don’t think that should have been done our super happy “let’s buy our tree” day. I don’t have the photo of the truck load of donated items. My eyes were a bit too watery to document that and my mind was elsewhere.
and yesterday was the day I deemed the day I officially lost my mind. We got ready for the wedding that I had been looking forward to for a bit- Grandma sitter and all with the kids and we pull up to the church. Nope. It was the day prior. I lost it. Tears and all. I guess it’s just a busy time and a can’t hold 300 balls in the air. We ended up going to lunch and took advantage of my dress and make up and I decided I needed to put myself together more often.
