The weather turned grey, blustery, windy and cool, right on time for Halloween night. 🙂 How appropriate! October seemed to go really, really fast, which makes me a little sad! I like October. I have a little feeling like it sort of slipped away from me. But I also know I did enjoy it, too.… Continue reading Happy Halloween!
Good morning! Short on time today, but here's a quick Friday 5 of misc. stuff in my life: 1- I stayed up too late watching the Packer game last night, but it was WORTH IT, with a crazy ending and a win over the Cardinals of 24-21. Being the good empath that I am, my… Continue reading Friday 5
Starting with positive news: We got new carpet installed yesterday!!! (in our 3 main level bedrooms) Now for the negative news: We got new carpet installed yesterday!!! Just kidding. It is good news, and I'm very happy, and grateful. The carpet looks (and feels) great. But omg, I'm exhausted right now. Prep + Clutter..... Tuesday… Continue reading The clutter is killing me…
So I'm not huge into the whole "planner world" like some other people are, but I have dabbled just a little bit (100% thanks to SHU and her planning content/podcast). I don't really like change very much, so I don't see myself bouncing around and trying all different products and dayplanners, though. I did switch/… Continue reading Keeping planners forever?
Coco asked me yesterday how I kept track of everything for the "weekly audit" review I posted. In reality, I don't normally keep track of my week exactly according to those categories. Yesterday morning I sat down in a special attempt to do a weekly audit, and brainstormed those 7 categories as general areas of… Continue reading More on weekly audit + ?? TRAVEL and other misc.
I was listening to a short Before Breakfast episode this morning while I put my contact lenses in, and Laura mentioned the idea of doing a brief review of your previous week on Monday mornings, to reflect on what went well and what didn't the week before. Since I keep my little daily journal tracking… Continue reading An audit of the week
Friday the boys didn't have school, so I took the morning off and we went to a pumpkin farm/ corn maze. At 11 and 13, they are getting a little bit past the "get super excited about a pumpkin patch" age....but they agreed to go. (I got the feeling that if I had said, "Oh,… Continue reading Moments to cherish
I went back to the gym! I hinted that I was planning to do this post-birthday, and I did! (pat self on back). My official return was on Monday afternoon, after an eye doctor appt. I had my eyes dilated, so I really couldn't see to go back to work for a while anyway. But… Continue reading “3 Things I Did” Thursday
Tuesdays continue to be our busy night of the week, and honestly probably my least favorite night. Cross country practice is now out of the mix, but that means Asher's piano lesson has moved back to Tuesdays. Last night an extra wrench was thrown in there, too, because Asher had a quarterly group piano class… Continue reading The ONE thing & an unexpected treat
I'm going to steal my friend 5 am Joel's custom of referring to birthdays as "levels". As in, "I have now reached Level 38 in the game of life." 🙂 Go me! Haha. I've seen him use this in his emails and it always makes me chuckle. Life DOES feel like some kind of weird… Continue reading Level 38
