This and That

In part to combat my "blah" feeling, and in part because I was a dud for Halloween (zero cards sent, home sick with the front lights off while Maya and Herb went trick-or-treating), I decided to get moving on my holiday preparations.  I just ordered the above photo cards from Shutterfly, where they have 40% off holiday cards and free shipping for orders over $30.

Maya and I had a pretty productive weekend around the house, too, with four big bags of items to donate.  She went through her clothes and toys, and I went through my stationery.  We still have more to do, but what a great start.  This is the first time she went through her room completely on her own, and I'm impressed at how well she did.  I only rescued one item from Maya's giveaway pile--the little cap she wore in the hospital.  That's one of **my** treasures!

We also had time for fun, including our usual Saturday errands and lunch out, watching Nebraska squeak out a win against Penn State in football, and watching our favorite movie, Love Actually.  I also enjoyed The Walking Dead last night, though I want Carol to come back (safely--not as a walker).  Am I the only one who keeps watching the show in hopes of a romance between Carol and Daryl?

How was your weekend?

Shopping is one of the best cures for that blah feeling!

It's so hard for kids to get rid of stuff isn't it?? specially toys!

I am glad Maya did it on her own and am more glad you were able to rescue the little baby hat. I think all moms treasure those! Hugs dear.
Thanks, sapphireblue! I'm relieved to have one item done for my holiday list.

I was really shocked that Maya went through her stuff so willingly, Claudia. It's usually a big struggle.
