Blogtember: Life Lately

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Hello Friends! I am linking up with Jenni from Story of my Life for { Blogtember }Its a daily blog challenge starting Tuesday Sept 3 with weekends off! The full list of topics is below but today/yesterday we are talking about:

Monday, September 23: A "life lately" post. What you're up to, how you're feeling, how you're doing on your goals, etc. Bonus points for great photos! 

I have been sick lately and skipped a couple of the blogtember post ( that I may makeup this week sometime) but I thought I would just jump right in with today's prompt...

Staying Organized:

It seems that lately I have been working hard on planning and staying organized. I have been working on all kinds of projects around here getting things ready for fall and winter. I am a planner through and through. My family jokes that if its not written down in my planner, its not happening! I also started using another Day Timer that I just got. I have soooooo many planners.....guess its just an obsession. Planning really is a way of life around here. I find life so much easier to deal with when I know what I have coming up and I always have a working to do list. I don't think I could live any other way!

Right now we have 3 beautiful Persian kittens bouncing around the house. A lot of my time is spent in the floor with them. Its crazy how much time can pass when I am playing with these babies! I feel so blessed have them in my life. Right now I am at the point where I am just going to keep them all. I am not sure if husby will go along with that or not.. but these days, a lot of my extra time is for them! 


I have been working hard with Laci on her blog. In case you don't know who Laci is.. she is my sister who just got to Ireland to do a year with a Human Trafficking Mission. She is blogging/vlogging her time there. So a lot of early afternoons I am busy helping her get things set up! If you want to know more about what she is doing.. check out this video... and you can always visit her blog right here! 

Speaking of Laci..

Tomorrow is her birthday! So a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY and BIG HUG to you Laci! 


Fall has moved into our little South Carolina town. With all the rain, the leaves have really been falling. I am always so happy this time of the year when the leaves start changing, the days are crisp, breaking out the sweaters and sweatshirts, and enjoying cozy cups of hot tea. We have even been sleeping with the windows open at night. 

All of us in the Jaggers house have really been sick these past few days. I have been the worse but Scott is starting to feel pretty bad too. I figure little Jackson brought me home some strange germs from school here I am.. sniffling, coughing, and feeling like shit. Its crazy Jackson isn't more sick. He has a little cough but nothing like Scott and I. I seem to feel much worse at night than during the day making it next to impossible to sleep. I am loading up on meds and once I am better, I am going to get a flu shot so I don't have to go through this again. YUCK!

Hope you had a wonderful Monday!

Bonus points for including a photo from the coffee shop. (I recommend downloadingOmmwriter and bringing headphones along!) *if you can't make it to a coffee shop, at least leave your usual space and write someplace new.
Friday, September 27: An anonymous letter to your Facebook friends. Be as snarky as you'd like. (but don't include people's real names.) 
Monday, September 30: Share a photo of something old. Maybe something that has personal history for you, that was passed down to you, and that has special meaning to you. Tell us about it and why it's special.about:

  1. Children bring us home those new germs and they get over them very quickly and bounce back like new and we just drag our butts and take forever to get over it. That's been my experience, especially the older I get. (one4UT)
