The start of the holiday season beginning and so does my chaos. This weekend will be my son's second year of trick or treating and fall festivals. I have our families costumes are picked out. I am the devil and Kaleb is going to be a bumble bee. Friday night, they have trunk 'n treat at a local church. Then on Saturday, they have a Halloween party in a town near ours.
Kaleb will be turning 2 years old on the 4th of November. I picked up a couple of presents for the occasion. I picked him a helmet for his bike that Grandma brought for him. I have a few smaller gifts. I am ordering his cake next Saturday. I have not even decided on what kind of cake I will be getting for him. I do know where I am ordering it. I have a $4 coupon off any cake that arrived in the mail three days ago. Yes!!!
My mother, sister and brother in law are leaving the afternoon after Kaleb's birthday party. It will be there turn to go to New York. My sister is having her baby shower with family and friends. They will be gone for two weeks!!!
Kaleb will be in daycare for two weeks. I am hoping he will adjust well.
Of course, Thanksgiving will be followed closely to my families return. I am planning a dinner for Ed (the man my son knows as dad), Star (a friend from work whose kids are with their fathers this year), Kaleb and myself. I have know clue what I am going to be making but I have been thinking about it. During the next few weeks, I will be purchasing a table and chairs. This is my first Thanksgiving in my home. I am planning the meal to be on a Saturday.
Two weeks after my best friend and her family will becoming into town. She was planning on coming here at the beginning of the year. Due to the safety of her children, she needs to here a month year. I am trying to get presents for the two boys. Plus, having the little details in place for her family to feel at home. That is stressing me out. I want her family to feel comfortable until they can find a place. I guess it is because I am a type A personality. I have wanted this for a very long time. I am just scared she will not feel comfortable and leave.
I have nothing to decorate my house to make if feel like Christmas. This only leaves me today at my starting line of 61 days of stressing out about making things just right.
