Flourish: October Update

October was a fantastic month. We welcomed a new furbaby into the house...our rescue dog Ellie. She is the perfect addition to our family. She had her first training session this week and she is rocking the homework...because she is brilliant. I spent a week at my parents house and got to spend a lot of time with one of my best friends who is going through a major life change. I also got to spend a lot of time with my mom, saw another of my best friends and went to an extended family get-together.

17. New Bedroom Carpeting
18. New Kitchen Flooring

Plans for November: In all honesty...
The bedroom and kitchen flooring will probably not happen. I don't want new bedroom carpeting until we do the second bathroom in the master suite (we have a his and hers thing ever) because I don't want to worry about the new carpet with the men tromping through during the remodel. Because we do a lot during the holidays, I don't want to upset the heart of my household at this time of year. However, I plan on tacking those two things onto the end of my 19 for 2019 list. These things will happen...but probably not this year.

November in General

Coming up in November, I need to prepare for Thanksgiving. I will be hosting Thanksgiving and having houseguests for the weekend. Ellie has her second training session, where we will work with another dog. My first travel agency clients will be traveling to Walt Disney World. I am participating in Nanowrimo, the Planathon and Last 90 Days.
