I had a realization last week, while listening to Sarah on Deep Questions (for a second time, actually- I listened first on my flight home from Texas, but was sort of in a post-food poisoning half-awake stupor, so I listened again with a clearer mind a few days later.) I keep a calendar, yes. I… Continue reading Planning but not planning, and time choices

Workout update + a couple gym things
I haven't really been talking much about workouts lately here, but I'm still working out. Still primarily doing strength training as my main form of exercise, aiming for 5 times per week ideally (though I don't always hit 5). I walk "most" days for ~20-60 minutes, as I can. Formal, higher intensity cardio has not… Continue reading Workout update + a couple gym things
Quick check-in/ misc.
Random thoughts/updates/tidbits on a Thursday: 1) I'm tired. Yesterday (Wednesday) I woke up at 2:45 a.m. and never fell back to sleep. Asher had 5:30 swim practice anyway, so there wasn't a whole lot of wiggle room in the first place. So, yeah. I felt okay yesterday but ended up sort of biting off more… Continue reading Quick check-in/ misc.
Austin, TX Recap!
Okay, I'm officially feeling almost 100% human again (see more here about my fun Adventures in Food Poisoning). THE REST of the trip was peachy keen and fun! Here's a little recap of how it all went, and, some important "shots of my outfits" that I made Ivan take of me literally so that I… Continue reading Austin, TX Recap!
It’s all fun and games until you get food poisoning
Headed back from Austin a day late… because as the title gave away, the very end of our Texas trip was literally spoiled by food poisoning. 😩😩 Looking on the bright side…. 1) It hit me Sunday morning around 6 a.m…. Which was to be our departure day anyway (so, no further plans to be… Continue reading It’s all fun and games until you get food poisoning
My very busy week is going okay. There have been a couple of lucky breaks that opened up some time, namely Ethan's friend's mom driving him to the Spanish placement test yesterday. (He said it was "easy", so, hopefully that means he did well??? Guess we'll find out in about 2 weeks when results come… Continue reading Wednesday misc.
Looking ahead: summer, changes, etc.
It's officially May, which means we have entered Ethan's official last month of middle school. This also means this is the LAST month of the boys attending the same school. (Possibly forever, because there's a very real possibility they may actually attend different high schools.) This makes me a bit sad! I am so used… Continue reading Looking ahead: summer, changes, etc.
Busy busy + dress code on a trip

We leave for Austin, TX super early on Thursday, and there's just a lot happening before then. On the docket: haircut- Monday over lunch hour hot tub service appt- Tuesday work… Continue reading Busy busy + dress code on a trip
In need of a do-over day + driving fatigue
Blech, I need a do-over of yesterday. It was not my best day. Nothing terrible happened, but I was just off. Actually, I have felt a bit off all week. My brain has just been so DISTRACTED!! I don't know. Too many things on my mind I guess, and then it ends up that I'm… Continue reading In need of a do-over day + driving fatigue
Blog friends: I need advice!
I need some help! Google and searching is not really giving me what I'm looking for, so I figured, why not turn to good, old-fashioned people? My question: How do you back up your blog posts? Background info: My blog started on Blogger in spring of 2020. Then I transitioned it to a self-hosted WordPress.org… Continue reading Blog friends: I need advice!
