A December to Remember

Things at home have been very busy. I’ve spent the last few weeks getting my house set up from our extended stay in Hawaii. It was time to come home. I have a big day coming up next Monday and it will be easier because we are back in Denver.

We are still doing online school for the boys. Peace gets her ABC Mouse program an hour a day. She’s whipping right through all of the Pre-K and Kindergarten things. It’s kind of scary how smart she is. I mean, she already runs the house, as a 3 year old.

I’ve been neck deep in laundry, unpacking our boxes that came UPS, cooking, cleaning every surface. Oh yeah, and getting the house inside and out decorated for Christmas.

Work has been a chore. I’m still semi-retired. I’m losing money this year but we will survive. I’ve had to cut back on a lot of business things I had scheduled for this year. I have NOT traveled for work. That is crazy to me. I travel all year long in a non-Covid year. But we are okay.

The vaccine is coming. I realize it’s going to be months before my family will be allowed to get vaccinated but that’s okay. The kids do not leave the house unless we have a medical appointment or we go out for a drive. We are limiting any fast food, pizza to place we know follow all CDC guidelines. I mean, I’m not giving up Friday pizza night. It’s our family tradition. We are doing our best to stay healthy. No colds or flu bugs so far.

The good news. Wait, the GREAT NEWS, is that my 2 nannies, Lynn and her daughter Brenda, have found a house to buy. They had sold their house in Texas and decided Denver will be their forever home. They live in my guesthouse right now but have been looking for a while to find the right place for them. They found a ranch style 4 bed/3 bath home that just got revonated. There is still some painting to do but the rest of the house is brand new. It’s 10 minutes away from us so travel back and forth here will be easy. Sarah is also looking for a place. Switching from nanny to our full time teacher/helper is not making her in a rush to get out Lol I’ve tried.

The plan is to get everyone out in to their own places soon. Then it’s me and my 5 kids all alone. This was the plan for this summer but COVID said HAHAHA nope! I am looking forward to having my house and my kitchen all to myself. Sarah’s baby is so cute…and loud, and a baby, so she’s eating, sleeping, pooping all the time. I’m done with that phase. Sky is 1 and almost out of full time diapers. She’s doing her best to learn about the potty and I swear as soon as she started walking I knew we were all in trouble. This kid gets the zoomies and she’s GONE Lol I love them all. I want them all to myself. I just need help during school hours. I hope. We will see.

Hope you guys are doing well. Please wear your mask. Please enjoy or NOT enjoy the last few months of Trump. He’s been a pain in the a** for years. I’m glad he’s gone. The sooner we hit President Biden era, the better. Love you guys! Thanks for reading this.
