I feel like this has been a very “random” week in blog posts, so, sorry?? Or not, if you like them this way. 🙂
- Of course, I must commemorate Asher’s 1st covid vaccine yesterday, for the sake of memory keeping and tracking this whole pandemic (in my own way) via blog posts.
All went well! The vaccine clinic was a pretty smooth operation with LOTS of people there. Asher agreed this was a very easy shot. (The kid in the back who started screaming hysterically probably disagrees. lol. Everyone was kind of snickering- poor kid!! Pretty sure it was a case of “fear of needles”, not an actual reaction to the tiny pinprick of the actual shot.)
2. We tried something new last night!! A couple weeks ago, I saw that our gym was offering a couple free racquetball classes to newbies who wanted to learn. I had no idea how to play racquetball, but thought, hey! This could be a fun activity for me and Ivan. We live so close to the gym, we could go over any time and have a fun activity to do together.
He was totally game for it, so I signed us up. Turns out we were the only 2 signed up (class= max of 4), so I emailed the instructor to see if the boys could fill in the other two spots. He said sure!
So at 6 pm last night we all put on goggles and borrowed racquets and basically learned how to play! He taught us how to hit the ball and all the basic rules. We stayed after for about 45 minutes and attempted some little games/ rallies. We are definitely not pros, but I think we got the general idea. IT WAS SUPER FUN!! The boys loved it, too. Excited to have a new thing we can all do!
(We definitely need some practice/ improvement, but that’s okay.)
3. My new garage is stressing me out. The new floor is done and is gorgeous. Love it. But now what?! We basically have this big open, empty space with all brand new drywall. So, no shelves, no hooks, no organization, no nothing.
ALL of our stuff is piled a mile high in my storage room- which is also where all of my holiday decorations and stuff are (buried) somewhere underneath. I desperately need it all out of there, but the garage isn’t exactly ready to re-home all of it, either.
I’m at kind of a loss as to how we should even organize our garage. I mean, obviously some kind of shelving needs to go back up. But I feel pressure to “get this right”, because obviously we don’t want to start making a bunch of haphazard holes in our new drywall!
Plus, organizational bins/ shelves/ systems all a) cost money (they are $$$$$!) b) need to be purchased and c) well, you have to know what you want to even buy.
****MY CHRISTMAS WISH, in case Santa is real: Please send one of those designers from HGTV (maybe that lady from Love it or List it? she seems good) to completely design, install and arrange everything in my garage.
I really, really just want to come home, open my garage door and then stand there with my hand on my chest and mouth gaping open, saying, “OH MY GOSH!! It’s fabulous!!”, while the cameras roll. 😁
I am grateful for a cute zip hoodie that I rediscovered in my closet clean out process the other day!
P.S. HAPPY VETERAN’S DAY!! Thank you so much to all who have served.
