Yesterday morning I experienced two back-to-back situations that left me feeling disappointed in humanity. I know there are endless examples of beautiful and amazing humans out there, and I generally prefer to focus on them. But I had a hard time shaking this! Situation #1 Due to the impending snowstorm, I decided to make a… Continue reading Disappointing humanity
Happy Saturday morning! We are in for another bigger winter storm starting tonight through most of day tomorrow, so we are planning to hunker down later and probably not come out until tomorrow night sometime (if at all). I've heard the weather forecasters all warning that "travel on the roads is not recommended", so we'll… Continue reading Opinion overload
1- Let's start with the confession. I announced so excitedly that I was going to start IF (intermittent fasting) on 1/15, and my goal was to try it for at least 4 weeks. Well. I didn't make it 4 weeks. I made it 6 days. 🙂 It's not that I really couldn't keep going (the… Continue reading Friday 5: Confession, progressive overload, quotes and more
I was listening to the podcast Happier yesterday (with Gretchen Rubin), which is a podcast I would say I listen to fairly often but not religiously. I have been enjoying it quite a bit lately, however, and listened in after my shower yesterday (one of my favorite podcast listening times). I think I mentioned once… Continue reading Happier, #21in2021 and Book Debates
The boys had the pleasure of experiencing one of childhood's greatest joys yesterday.....the SNOW DAY!!! I think anyone who lives in a cold weather/snowy climate will agree- there are few things more exciting than waking up to the news that SCHOOL IS CANCELLED!!! I have vivid memories of waking up as a child in my… Continue reading Snow day
When we were at Disney's Animal Kingdom a couple weeks ago, I saw this quote painted on a wall inside "Africa". (By the way, Animal Kingdom is my FAVORITE Disney park. THE BEST. I especially love the Africa area.) I immediately pulled out my phone and made a note of it, because it just spoke… Continue reading Get lost
This was the nicest weekend!!! The first really "relaxing" weekend since the whole holiday rush + vacation + unpacking/ taking Christmas decoration down weekends. Friday night started off with driving Asher ~30 minutes away to a swim practice, BUT it meant I had a full hour to sit in the car and read my book… Continue reading A great weekend
The boys didn't have school yesterday. It was the end of the 2nd quarter, so, I guess that means no school for a teacher work day. After all of the time they have been OUT of school, I will admit I feel a little annoyed when I see the no school days on my calendar.… Continue reading No school day + misc.
1- Virtual Book Club! The Transplant department where I work has started a virtual book club, which will meet by Webex once a month on Monday evenings. I have never been in a book club, in part because the idea of potentially having to host a bunch of semi-strangers makes me anxious. 🙂 But this… Continue reading Friday 5
Beautiful sky at 7 am yesterday Milestone day! I went back to the gym yesterday! Since the pandemic, I've only been there to swim with Asher or to drop the boys off for their workout classes. As someone who was a 4-6 day/week gym goer for YEARS prior to COVID, this is crazy. Actually, looking… Continue reading Back in the saddle!
