A Few Weeks.....

We have been so busy!  It seems like everyone I talk to is busy.  Our kids and jobs definitely keep us very busy.  This time of year always seems to get busier with four exciting holidays right in a row (Boo Boo!!  Gobble Gobble!! Ho Ho!! Happy New Year!!)  It's also the start of basketball season, and with three boys in three different leagues, we are definitely going to get busier.

Last weekend we ended our middle son's travel soccer season (he's the only one that plays a dedicated fall sport).  We were at a tournament for the weekend, and sadly the games were not in our favor.  It was ok, but we were definitely bummed after not scoring a single goal two games in a row.  The coach quickly got the team together to say a fast goodbye (he had another son playing on a different field).  As he was walking away he said, "see you in a couple weeks".  And us moms who are trying to gather our kids, bags, chairs, water bottles, and soccer balls look at each other thinking "a couple weeks?!? What?!?"  The season is over....spring soccer is months away!   As the coach is walking away a mom yells, "what's in a couple weeks???"  He stopped, thought, and replied, "indoor conditioning starts right after January 1st....it will seem like a couple of weeks to you all!"  This totally got me thinking that "YES! it will feel like a couple of weeks!!"

In a couple of weeks, Thanksgiving will be over, Christmas shopping will need to be finished, then it will be 2017!  

On that note, I wanted to include a couple of referral links.  If you don't have Swagbucks, Ebates, or Ibotta, I highly recommend you getting these apps.  They save me money (not tons of money, but money none the less!)  I am saving my Swagbucks for an Amazon gift card to buy Christmas gifts.  I just got a $30 check from Ebates in the mail!   And I have over $200 in my Ibotta Christmas fund!!  These are definitely wins for me and you too.




Happy Shopping to you!!  And see you in a couple of weeks, or maybe in January!!
