1. Last night Ivan wasn't home, so the boys and I went to the gym. Ethan went to the circuit training room, but Asher joined me in the bigger weight room. There's this new area up on the side of the sprint track where they have dumbbells and benches, etc., off removed away from the… Continue reading 3 on a Thursday: Gym, veggies, pants
Do you have a favorite part of the holiday season? And a cat cartoon
Two Christmas related things: 1. Does anyone else have a favorite "part" of the holiday season? For me, it's sadly already kind of wrapping up. (My favorite part, not the holiday season itself.) I really like the period from approximately December 1st- 10th. Here's why: So, before that is sort of still in Thanksgiving territory,… Continue reading Do you have a favorite part of the holiday season? And a cat cartoon
Okay internet friends, need your help. We have a little family debate going on here. So the other night, something came up about signing Christmas cards and the order in which we refer to pairs of people that we know. (Could be husband/wife, or even like pairs of siblings.) If you think about it for… Continue reading Name bias?
A few things on a Friday
*First, just a note for anyone having a rough week or a rough day: What a true and comforting thought. 🙂 *I got a haircut/ color yesterday. Can I just say (again)- I am soooooooooooooooo glad that I found my new hairstylist a year or so ago?? I cannot even explain how much I prefer… Continue reading A few things on a Friday
Sleep + snow
I do not know what is going on, but I've been sleeping for total crap this past week. At least three times lately I have woken up in the middle of the night, unable to fall back to sleep. 2 of the 3 times (including today), I never did fall back to sleep, meaning essentially… Continue reading Sleep + snow
#1: Adios election ads!! Very excited to have the always so informational and influential election ads go buh-bye now. 🤣🤣 I voted in-person absentee last Thursday, but Ivan never made it over there, so he'll go today. #2: Feeling a little wonky today in general. Some work stuff/ stress that I can't really talk about… Continue reading Tuesday misc.
My favorite people at the gym
I was at the gym yesterday afternoon, doing a full body strength workout. (My current plan includes 2 leg/ab days, 1 back/biceps day, 1 chest/shoulders day and 1 full body day. I was thinking yesterday- I think the full body days are my favorites. It's enough variety that no single body part gets overly fatigued,… Continue reading My favorite people at the gym
A Broadway night and the end of appt. overload?
Pretty Woman!! Last night Ivan and I went to see the Broadway musical Pretty Woman! On a Wednesday night, at 7:30 p.m.! Definitely classifies as an adventure this week, though with our fall weekend + my birthday + now this, this whole past week has felt extra adventurous. Side note- for Laura's "one little adventure,… Continue reading A Broadway night and the end of appt. overload?
I'm happy to report that my week has done pretty much a full turnaround. After spending much of Monday (okay, and part of Tuesday) sort of wrapped around the axle in a bit of a stress-induced spiral, I feel much better today. I credit this with the fact that yesterday afternoon (Wednesday) I decided to… Continue reading Better
(Very) random Friday list
First, I'm sure you're dying to know the outcome of my very scientific poll. Here are the results so far, from my overwhelmingly large sample size. 🤣 I find it pretty interesting that "podcasts or audiobooks" was the clear winner, and surprisingly to me- "listen to nothing" was the runner up! Not sure what it… Continue reading (Very) random Friday list
