My husband’s life seems to revolve around the schedule of the NCAA and the NFL. His year starts in June, rather than January like mine. Think of it as a fiscal year verses calendar year. June, July and August are full of fantasy football gab, training camps and finally the pre-season games. September to December become a whirlwind of games, injuries and fantasy trades. Playoffs are in full swing come January, and the only thing I care about, the Super Bowl steals the spotlight in February. The year isn’t over yet though, for what my husband is lacking in football, he makes up for in college basketball. March Madness takes over. Literally. He takes time off from work to sit home and watch it. He does take a minimal break in April and May before everything ramps back up in June.
While I don’t care about sports, outside of how they impact my life through my husband, this month…this is my version of the playoffs.
Thanksgiving x 2

Birthday Party x 1
Office Party x 2
Christmas Gathering x 4
Sleep x 0
Today is December 10th and I’ve only marked three things off my list. By tonight, we’ll have knocked out 4.
Little Miss celebrated her 5th birthday Wednesday. This afternoon is the big party. I’ll torture with all the details in another post, but I will leave you today with a picture of the birthday girl, and the hope that Mama.Mommy.Mom. will be a little less neglected come January.
PS – I am really missing the kitchen. Really, really missing the kitchen.
