November happenings

Hello 41, for me, and Jason and I celebrated 16 years of marriage. We didn’t do much of anything this year because all of our fun money went to having new siding put on the house. 

It looks pretty great, even with just primered siding. The paint will have to wait until spring. 

The birthday was spent lazing about like this…

The anniversary was also spent cozy at home with our first woodstove fire of the season…

A gradual shift in our family life has occurred, and it is having a teen who wants to stay home instead of joining family outings. This shift seemed okay until kid #2/almost-teen also wanted to skip out on a trip to the beach. 

I nearly had a melt down! I know a time will come when kids grow up and move away; when Jason and I will travel about for ourselves, but today is not that day! Not for half my kids already?? 

I was able to talk Xander into joining us for the beach trip, but I know it won’t work next time. I need to soak it up while it lasts and accept this transition. Waaaaah!
