Five for Friday - Last Days of Winter Break

I am solidly in the denial stage of going back to school on Monday. So to help me work through this stage I am using the strategy of avoidance, seems like a sound strategy. So take a minute and avoid whatever it is you need to be doing and look back at my week as I link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching....

I am doing it, I made a pledge and I am staying strong!! I have blogged here and here and here!! And hopefully if I keep blogging people will keep reading (or skimming at least!!)



I went to IKEA to buy a shelving unit and picked up these three cuties.....


...for our 3 Little Pig/Fairy Tale/Structures unit in April and May. But they were so cute now and my big yellow bag was so sad with just some tea lights and napkins in it, had to be done.




I have found out there is a use for teenagers, besides sucking money out of our bank account and giving us some great memories, building IKEA furniture. I am at the stage of my life that I am almost too old to be buying furniture that needs an allen key to be put together, but my children, they are just entering their prime IKEA building year and it is my duty to prepare them.











 

We did buy furniture that did not require a key to be put together, it came assembled, from heavy wood!! I switched our décor over to winter from Christmas. I also found these cute little runners at the dollar store, I may have bought one for each season, come on, the dollar store!! So I have real furniture mixed in with the assembled furniture mixed in with décor from the dollar store!








Also as part of my work towards acceptance of the end of the holidays I began to laminate.....




So next week.....I may have real school stuff to share!! Have a great weekend!

  1. Gotta love IKEA. I haven't seen the piggies before. I think IKEA is a test for adulthood :) Thanks for sharing. Kathleen Kidpeople Classroom
