A little bit o' random

Wow. A whole week has gone by without even a glance to poor ol' blog here.

In my defense we have been battling some horrible stomach bug . . . YUCK! The first few days I couldn't pick myself up off the floor, let alone turn on a computer. But I think we're finally on the mend.

In other news, our sheetrock is finished, and the inside of our house is completely painted. Also, our garage door was installed on Wednesday. YAY! Next up, we lay the underfloor in preparation for the cabinets and flooring that will all be installed within the next month or so. It's so fun to walk through and actually get a good idea of where things will go. We're starting to envision ourselves living there someday ;)

I can't believe Thanksgiving is six days away! Seriously, where does the time go? We're going to hit the grocery store today, so I've had my cookbooks out. My mouth is watering just looking at some of these yummy recipes. And that's a good thing, because I haven't had much in my stomach lately.

We're trying to plan our Countdown to Christmas this year. Last year we had such fun with a special activity, outing, or craft each day of December, I knew we'd have to continue the tradition. If anyone is interested in linking up again this year, let me know. Otherwise I'll probably just do a regular post on our activities, and maybe a few tutorials on our chosen crafts.

That's all! What's been keeping you busy?

Yuck! Somehow we have managed to avoid the stomach bug this year, but Grant was sick this week with a high fever and sore throat. I'm glad you are feeling better! I can't believe we have less than a week until Thanksgiving...I should probably head to the grocery store soon to try and beat the rush!

Stomach bugs are the worse! I'm so sorry!

I'm pretty excited for you that the house is coming together! I can't wait for more pics!!

I am thinking of some ideas for a countdown to Christmas as well. I might do a link up, but I will probably take a blog break for the second 1/2 of December.

We have had the stomach bug in our house and I know what you mean about picking yourself up off the floor.
I can't believe Thanksgiving is here. We are going to have to start planning our Christmas activites or we won't get it all done.
Have a great weekend!
