The festivities that come with the month. My birthday. Christmas. Small activities like driving around looking at lights and watching Christmas movies tucked into a pile of blankets.

I took too long to get my tooth looked at I think. Making the appointment on Monday. Too much pain. Hoping I don't need a root canal.

Black Friday batteries on sale at Lowe's
Plant Shopping

The dang 3 hour long wait to ride the new Hagrid ride at Universal. When will it go down low enough so I can ride it?!

Too much to talk about. In a funk without a doubt.

Focusing on the positive. The blessings. The things that are right. Dinners out with the girls and Adam. Pushing them on the swing outside. Bonfires during cool evenings. Antique shopping with them while Scarlette wears a bowler hat with playing cards sticking out of the band and twirls the new cane I just bought her for $5. Savanna steering clear of the creepy dolls. Family over for Thanksgiving. Watching my plants grow. Morning cuddles with Toddles.

How has your November been? Are you looking forward to anything next month?


  1. I hope you enjoy all your 'awaiting' items this month!!
    I'm sorry about your 'dreading', 'miss' and 'low'.

    November flew by for me! Holy wow can't believe it's December tomorrow!! I'd say the month went pretty well overall. We got a cold or two and my daughter had 2 separate puking incidents that were rough, but shortlived. Thank goodness. I'm still in a bit of a depressed, unwell state, but I'd say it's the same or getting better, not any worse.
    I'm looking forward to all the great things about December, enjoying the holiday season. Hopefully I can juggle seeing family, making everyone happy with all our schedules in mind..

    1. I know I normally cycle in and out of lows but this low never seems to end. Once our new insurance kicks in I think I will shop around for a doctor and some help.

      November did fly didn't it?? I have a feeling December will too. I am sorry you guys got sick. We did too a time or two. It is no fun. I am glad you are feeling some stabilizing of your current state. Hoping and wishing for you to feeling some continual lightening.

      The December schedule juggle is real. Someone, somewhere is usually not completely happy with how we organized our visits but it is the best we can do. May all your holiday happenings be merry. <3

    2. Thank you so much for the well wishes. <3 I only, always wish the very best for you and yours. <3

  2. I love Ebb and Flow! I'm looking forward to Christmas in Austin with my family. The sky is so blue there in winter...

    1. Thank you, Brooke!! I hope you have a beautiful visit!! A crystal clear blue winter sky is so joyful. My sister lives in Houston and I hope we can make our way over there one day in the future.
