So Ivan left Saturday morning for California and will be away until Friday, meaning this whole week I have some "husband-free" time. This may sound bad, but I was kind of excited for this week!! (Don't worry, Ivan doesn't read my blog; he won't be offended.) I mean, it's not that I want him to… Continue reading Some husband-free time
Flexibility: a question
I have a question about flexibility. And no, not flexibility as in what I might normally talk about in this space- the flexibility to work from home, or work/life balance, or things like that. I am literally talking about flexibility, of your body. Is it actually possible to really improve flexibility??? I feel like I… Continue reading Flexibility: a question
Sprint to the finish
I feel like this week is that final push, up the hill toward the FINISH banner in a race. When I sat down Friday to check over the family Google Calendar and plan out the week a bit, it... took me a while. Ha. That whole idea of fitting pieces together like a game of… Continue reading Sprint to the finish
A 5 minute post
About to jump into meetings for the next 2 hours, so I'm taking a quick brain break. I've been working solid since 7:30 a.m. today. Couple random things: 1. Isn't this a pretty picture? From the end of Asher's soccer practice the other night. 2. Little hamster girl is so cute. She also is not… Continue reading A 5 minute post
What we’re up to
I feel like my recent posts have been more "topic" based, and after a few of those I start itching to blab to you all about completely random, probably unimportant and uninteresting tidbits about my life. 😁 So, what have we been up to? Well, I'm currently sitting outside of Asher's swim practice in my… Continue reading What we’re up to
Planning but not planning, and time choices
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
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.
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
Eek, sliding into this upcoming week with a little trepidation combined with some excitement, too. My to-do list is kind of bursting right now. 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
