I seem to have missed posting yesterday. One minute, it was 8 a.m. and we were heading to an event, and the next minute, it was 10:15 p.m. and we were heading to bed. And nowhere in between those two did I sit at the computer.
So, I figure I better play catch-up today.
1) Canning: I made my own tomato sauce today FROM WHOLE TOMATOES and then canned it. Yes, I have plans to use it tomorrow, but I figured I needed the canning practice. That, at least, brought forth a chuckle from Dom.
2) The Hunting Mainieros brought home two deer today. I am seriously considering canning the meat.
3) I finally made an organizing leap of faith and got rid of a ton of clothes I was hanging onto, but will likely never wear again. Two closets had to be organized and swapped for the change in season, so this was a fitting time to do this. (hanging…fitting…clothes…get it?)
4) The holidays have managed to totally blindside me yet again. I like to think about holidays when it looks like holiday weather outside, not when it looks like August. I’m not in the mood to Christmas shop, but I have a personal policy that all shopping must be done by December 1 in order for me to enjoy the holidays. I think I’d better get busy.
Come to think of it, I really can’t get into the spirit of anything right now. Maybe it’s this whole idea of middle school creeping up on us that has me in a fog. The kids will go to two different schools next year. Aaron will be in middle school. And as much as I hate for them to be at different schools, this could very well be the last year that they are at the same school. I really do need the next 9 months for that to sink in. In the meantime, we have to be at one school’s open house in 45 minutes. Yikes! See ya tomorrow!
