Stream of Consciousness

Today was a long day and I could hardly wait to get home to my hubby and enjoy our evening together. I only live 8 miles from work but I drive into Portland so it usually takes me 30-40 minutes to get home at night. Tonight? It took me 2 hours. I am beat and very, very frustrated. I have no idea why there were so may cars on the road. I know tomorrow is the last day of school, so why were the roads so busy tonight?

Hubby dragged me to the store to buy ingredients for his eggnog that he has started to make every year. He is now making it in the kitchen as I sit and struggle to keep my eyes open.

Christmas is only 10 days away...let the countdown begin! 

I opened the mailbox today to find that I received my annual angel ornament from my grandma. Meet Viola:

I am so glad it is almost the weekend! And, my best friend is home for the Holidays from Boston!

Time for bed, Night!


  1. Hi, new follower from It's OK Thursdays :) Welcome to married life! I love finding newly wed blogs!
    Your 2 hour commute sounds downright miserable! I'd be really frustrated too!

  2. I had to laugh (but not too hard) about your commute. We live in Southern California where we tell people not how many miles something is away but how long it takes to get there, LOL, so I truly understand. However, two hours for eight miles would be a little taxing! What a cute ornament! That homemade eggnog sounds delicious! Enjoy that and the weekend!


  3. Hi, new follower and really enjoy reading! I just wanted to say I feel your pain on the long commute for a short distance. I live in the Boston area, and we too dont talk distance but time. When going through the city, it can sometimes take an hour just to go four miles. There is no way around it and its just miserable! Just make sure you have some great music in the car to get you through it :)


I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment and let me know that you stopped by.
