What have we been up to this week? Well, I already shared with you how I’m prepping for Thanksgiving, but I also pulled out, just a few, “seasonal wintry” decorations. You see, we’re Catholic, and I am determined this year to celebrate the seasons of the church in their correct order, by not decorating for Christmas too prematurely. I won’t get into the details of that in this post, since I already have a post lined up in regards to Advent, but I didn’t see the harm in putting out a couple winter things. Since we’re going to be in California for Christmas this year, we won’t get to enjoy our decorations for as long.
Anyway, I’ve also been trying to transition my wardrobe from summer/fall to full on winter, as the temperatures around here keep dropping. In fact, I had to break down and buy a maternity jacket. After trying on my 5+ coats, I couldn’t find any that fit me. I’ve decided to donate 3 of my old coats to Goodwill in order to justify getting a new one. The great news is, this coat isn’t JUST a maternity coat. It has a panel that zips into the jacket to widen it for a prego belly, but that same panel can also be removed, and the jacket zips up normally for postpartum moms too! I considered it an investment for winters and pregnancies to come.
For whatever reason, this past week has been tough on me. I can’t tell if hormones play a role, or if I have some other underlying anxiety, but I’ve had a bit of a short fuse lately. I’m really trying to get my reactions under control, and be a little more patient with everyone in my home.
What are your goals for the week?
