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
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.
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
Misc. Saturday: a dog, 1st high school event and a personality test!
Happy Saturday, annnnnd, it's snowing right now. For the love of Pete, can the snow please go away already?!?! 😩😩 On the bright side, I am not the parent who had to leave by 6 a.m. to drive Asher one hour away to a 7:45 a.m. soccer tournament. I am the parent sitting with a… Continue reading Misc. Saturday: a dog, 1st high school event and a personality test!
Back in present voice!
Hi!!! I am officially back. Well, we have been back for over a week now (since March 25), but I am finally back here in present day voice. I told myself that I was not allowed to resume posting any "regular" blog posts until I had completed my remaining trip recaps. I did this for… Continue reading Back in present voice!
A Monday at the end of February
It's kind of blowing my mind right now that it's MARCH tomorrow. I do not feel that February was my greatest month ever over here. I am not sure what happened exactly, but it feels like it slipped between my fingers. Never fear, I am not about to start rehashing all the ways I ended… Continue reading A Monday at the end of February
After Tuesday's post lamenting how I have not been keeping up with life right now, I am happy to say my week turned out pretty good overall. Strangely enough, I think the weather + the boys' two no-school snow days actually helped. The unexpected days off meant that I did not have to follow their… Continue reading Friday report
I actually wasn't going to post today, because I just don't really feel like I have anything too exciting to share today. lol. But Asher has a swim meet this weekend (early session both days), so not sure if I'll be able to check in much over the weekend or not. This was a nice,… Continue reading The week
First book club and other misc.
Work Book Club: I had my first work book club last night. As you all know, I don't read a TON or that fast, so I was mostly just pleased that I actually had finished the darn book!! 😄 We read The Sentence by Louise Erdrich. Everything was okay. 🙃 I thought the book was… Continue reading First book club and other misc.
