I have about 2 seconds right now; just got back from dropping Asher at summer school strength and conditioning class, and I have a ton of work to do. So, just a very quick check- in on a couple things! 1- Asher and Ivan are back from Iowa. They left and drove there Friday morning… Continue reading 2 second check in
(*Okay, topic for today is mostly just a little general "musing" on an interesting (to me) topic. I don't want to accidentally offend anyone, though, so just know that I don't actually have a super strong opinion on this either way- I'm mostly just mulling it over.) So. Last week I was at the gym… Continue reading Kids and expensive brand name clothes?
Hey blog world. This has not been my "most favoritest week" ever (I know that's grammatically incorrect, I just felt like saying it that way). All's good, just feeling edgy and kinda stressed out, but, c'est la vie. Some times are like that. The kids are staying up TOO LATE (has been pushing 10:30 the… Continue reading Random check in
Yesterday we had to finally say goodbye to our sweet hamster, Flint. If you recall, I mentioned a while back that he developed a tumor on his belly this past winter. We had him in to the vet two different times. She said that at his age (~2 years old), there was really nothing to… Continue reading The hamster with many names
5 Downs: 1- The overwhelm feeling I complained about several weeks ago has not lifted. If anything, it might be worse. argh. I don't have a great plan in place to combat this, at the moment. Maybe later today I will sit and try to corral all the to-dos from my head/ paper into one… Continue reading 5 downs/ 5 ups
I was thinking this morning, as I filled out my little daily journal page....I am so glad I started including a section of "things I accomplished". I've been doing this religiously for a couple years now. I'm currently sitting in my car outside a morning swim practice, so I don't have my journal with me… Continue reading Writing down things I accomplished
Happy belated Memorial Day. 🙂 Hope any US readers who celebrated the holiday had a nice "kickoff to summer" weekend! We took an impromptu short getaway to LaCrosse, WI this weekend. (Technically, we started from home, drove to Prairie du Chien, WI/ McGregor, Iowa along the Mississippi River, then drove up a stretch of the… Continue reading (Not) ready for a new week!
Someone referred to the month of May as "May-hem" in a comment recently, and I LOVED that!!! Truer words have never been spoken. The mayhem of May kind of snuck up on me. Things kept getting added to the calendar, slowly, in such a way that I didn't fully realize what we were dealing with.… Continue reading May-hem coming to an end….
The end of this week has involved quite a lot of time in the car. For various reasons, we were flying solo for swim practice (no carpool) both Wednesday and Thursday. Both days, practice was not held at our local high school- instead, we had to drive ~20 minutes to different pools. Meaning I had… Continue reading A funny ’90s music comment + pretty walks
I had a rather stressful day yesterday. No need to elaborate, but it was just mentally taxing for me, and I have a lingering dull headache right now as a result. There were some good things, though. 1- The weather was spectacular. It cooled down and the sky was a brilliant blue all day. 2-… Continue reading On to a new day
