Where did November go?

The last couple months have been BUSY to say the least. Keeping up with my life and mostly work has been my main priority so blogging has taken a hit. The last couple months have completely flown by, its the end of November, WHAT??? 

When things get crazy or stressful or bad at work I typically don’t write about it, and that feels like a mistake. I want to chronicle the good and the stressful in my life to look back on and remember when things change. 

This month a project I was working on went bad because scope was unidentified and the client needed everything done yesterday. I made some good and some bad decisions. I may have barked at my co-workers and especially my husband more than normal, but I got through it and the client is really happy. I also realized that while the project was/is stressful it was interesting and complicated and required a lot of problem solving. 

I am realizing more and more how much I value time away from work, as much as I do love my job, I need time to myself, with my husband, and with my friends and family. I am so grateful for the wonderful people in my life who are always there for me, even if I need to complain for an hour. 

This next week I am only working 2 days, which means time to rejuvenate, hang with family, and celebrate the holidays. I cannot wait.

Here are some of the goings on as of late:

This is the most we've ever gotten into Halloween. We like Divergent if you couldn't tell, plus easy costume. Dauntless. 

Put our Christmas lights up before it got too cold. Don't worry this is the first and last time they've been on since we put them up. We are big believers in celebrating thanksgiving before Christmas. 

Breakfast in bed thanks to my sweetie. I've been sick for 2 weeks. BLECK. So much laying around doing nothing and not getting enough sleep because of my nasty cough. Hopefully better soon.
