Hello! How's it going today? Feeling pretty good here, despite the growing concerns over increasing COVID numbers again. I've been having some intermittent anxiety/ worries about if this is EVER going to go away! I had really assumed initially, I guess, that this would maybe last through summer, but I always figured that by fall things… Continue reading Thankful, Thoughts, Travel: 3×3 Tuesday
I was reflecting yesterday (again, as this is a frequent topic of reflection since the pandemic began) on just how different our weekends are without soccer games, swim meets, practices, and the like. Since last weekend was Father’s Day and next weekend is 4th of July, I didn’t really feel like making big plans this… Continue reading My Recipe for a Nice Weekend
I am writing this later than usual on this beautiful Sunday morning, since this guy ↓decided he wanted to go swim laps at 6:05 a.m. this morning! We were going to go yesterday afternoon, but it was hot and we ended up just feeling lazy, so we cancelled and rescheduled for bright and early today.… Continue reading Someone crashed my early morning hours!
Going to try to keep this short for you today.... I want to share a quick story, something that happened when I was around 21 years old and a new college grad that really stuck with me. It’s one of those things that really isn’t technically even that profound or significant, but for some reason it… Continue reading It could always be worse!
This is our forecast here for today:Looks like rain, huh? Ah, that’s okay. I’m kind of in the mood for a rainy day. We have had a stretch of some beautiful, hot weather for the most part, and this weekend looks like it will be mid-80’s and sunny too. Like I’ve mentioned before, Fridays are generally… Continue reading Let it Rain! And Goodbye, Dear Neighbor 😦
Ivan and I spent a little time last night hashing out a birthday gift list for Ethan. His birthday is coming up in just a couple weeks, so we need to get going. Especially with any shipping delays, I feel like we probably should have had any important/ bigger items ordered by now! I have… Continue reading Approaching the TEENAGE years. OMG.
It's Wednesday, which means it's my day off....oh wait. Nope, flex days are over!! Ha. I'm not complaining- I am very grateful overall to be back to full time hours and pay this week. But hey, it was nice while it lasted! Can't say I didn't enjoy having Wednesdays off for the last 8 weeks. It… Continue reading “What’s your policy on Wednesdays?”
I'm cranky right now. That's about all I can say to sum it up. I have just been tired in general lately, despite a great weekend. I've gotten to bed too late too many nights recently and I'm paying for it now.Also, I made the mistake of lying in bed when my alarm went off… Continue reading Don’t Worry About A Thing
How was your weekend?Mine was good! Obviously, it was Father’s Day yesterday so that was a big focus. But Friday night and Saturday were good days here too. Some highlights!Friday night:Some alone time! Ivan and the boys rented the indoor soccer field at the gym for an hour after work. I stayed home, put some… Continue reading Weekend Recap
It’s Father’s Day today. I’m going to be honest here. I love, love, LOVE the Dads in my life- my husband, my own Dad and my father-in-law- and they are all so very worthy of celebration, but when this day rolls around, part of me is always like, “oh man, another holiday I’m supposed to… Continue reading I despise buying gifts for my husband….
