Thursday Tidbits

Thursday, December 5, 2013

{Weather} y'all I'm sick of this weather. 30s one week, 70s the next week. Can we PLEASE have some weather stability? Wait, I live in the south, so that's probably never gonna happen. Remember when I told y'all we had temps in the 60s and 70s in July? Yep, I think this is payback!

{Toilet Paper} what a topic, right? Well, if you've been reading my posts for any amount of time, you'll know that every time I use to go shopping, I bought toilet paper. I don't get out of the house much these days, and we've been buying our toilet paper at Sams in bulk. But it's been over a month, and when you use a roll a day (yes a roll a day) it runs out pretty quickly. The Mr said I average anywhere from 4-6 times a night going to the bathroom, and it's anywhere from every one in a half to every two hours during the day. Yeah, that's a lot of toilet paper usage, y'all. So I ventured out to Target yesterday morning to stock up on TP and Reese'e Christmas Trees. Because, hello, I can't be without either!

{Coughing} I literally can't stop coughing! It's been over two weeks since I first came down with this mess, and I'll be so happy when it leaves for good. I'm sure the weather isn't helping much, but the coughing seems to be worse in the mornings and at night. You can imagine the Mr's face every time I wake him up coughing. Is there a quiet way to cough? I didn't think so.

{Less Than 3 Weeks} how did that happen? It's less than three weeks til Christmas Day! And while some of you are probably finished shopping, well, we're not. I think I counted six people we have left to buy for. And we know what are getting some of them, but why is it every year it's so hard to buy for mom? Mom, we need your list!

{Artwork} for AC's room is complete. Well, the one that's going over her crib at least. The artist (who y'all will hear more about soon) sent me a sneak peak yesterday from her studio, and I cannot wait to get it hung over her bed to show y'all the completed look! She did an amazing job!!

Happy Thursday, y'all! If you're in the south, stay safe through the storms of bad weather, and ice and snow is some places. I think we are just getting the bad weather stuff here.


  1. Love the artwork! Sorry you're still ill.

    High temp is supposed to be 64 here in Philly today.

  2. First, Avery's art work is just beautiful!

    Two, I am SOOOOOOOOO over this weather, Joy! I have fought off getting sick for the last week since Chris has been sick and then this weather keeps changing and I woke up with a scratchy throat today! UGH! I even posted about it today too lol. Great minds think alike!

  3. Her painting is SO cute!!!! Our weather is CrAzY too!!! 70 yesterday and an ice storm predicted for Fri/Sat!!! UGH!

  4. Hahaha! Oh Joy and her TP! I love it though! And very true. I remember the pee all day days. I got a workout at work because the potty was on the other side of the building!

    The weather sucks. But I am happy to have some chilly back. The 80 degrees was really hard to get in the Christmas spirit. I am so far behind on gift buying its ridiculous. This year is all kinds of wacky. I actually finished all my Bro In Laws before Bird. WHAT!?! Go figure.

    This time next year will be so exciting for you. A year of firsts. Toys. Smiles. Eating wrapping paper! :) Can't wait to see those adventures!


Thanks for taking a moment to read the Sowell Life.
