Tuesday already! These past few days were a blur. The weekend was highly dominated by Asher's swim meet both Saturday and Sunday. But first, on Friday night we still squeezed in our date night: Switched it up from nachos and got a big quesadilla to share instead! Neither macro friendly nor low carb, but, delicious.… Continue reading Weekend snapshots + shoes for Costa Rica
I was thinking yesterday how our weekends are so inconsistent. They really never look the same. Overall, this is fine with me; it's mostly just an observation. We've actually never really had consistent weekends, for as long as I can remember. From 2006- 2016 I worked every other weekend. (!!!) That's a lot of weekend… Continue reading Weekend inconsistency
Ahhh, a 3-day weekend. What a lovely thing. It really was so very nice. ESPECIALLY because it was a 3-day weekend minus visitors, holiday prep, stress, etc. We had a very chill, low key weekend (for our standards), though we still did plenty. I was really wishing this morning that the weekend could just keep… Continue reading +1 vote to continue the weekend
Happy Monday! This weekend was so nice. It was one of those weekends where the days felt long.... but not in a bad way. Both days started early around 6 a.m. and seemed to be filled with a lot of variety. That always makes time pass more slowly to me. Ethan worked both mornings, and… Continue reading Weekend holiday prep + our favorite Christmas cookies
Asher is off in Iowa, as mentioned previously. My weekend started Friday afternoon with helping to get him packed up and to the high school to leave by 4 p.m. It was a group of I think around 34 kids: 30 teenaged girls and 4 boys. Haha. Poor boys! They are very outnumbered. (It's high… Continue reading Weekend so far, holiday parties + wondering something….
This past week has been FUN! And, I'm tired now. Hahaha. Yesterday was our last "action" day of this Thanksgiving week, which as you know by now, has been full of theater performances, shopping, cooking, lots of amazing family time, Thanksgiving, decorating, work and more. My parents were slated to leave yesterday (Saturday), after being… Continue reading A 4-part busy Saturday; now ready for a quiet day!
Writing this from a markedly "lighter outside" 6 a.m. Monday morning, now that Daylight Savings Time has ended... Yes, we set the clocks back this weekend. I know this can be a big deal to people with little kids + sleep issues, but fortunately, I think we're past the stage where this ruffles our feathers… Continue reading Weekend snapshots
In the words of Asher from about 8:50 p.m. last night: "Well, that was a fun weekend!" It was!! It was also a pretty full weekend, and I am kind of tired right now. But I'm going to need to rally, because it's a) only Monday and b) Halloween, meaning the festivities are not over… Continue reading Halloween Weekend: Events
Ethan is home safe and sound! 🙂 His group flew in last night fairly late and we had to pick him up at school at 11 p.m. The 8th graders didn't have to go to school today, but I still had to get up early and get Asher off to school and then work and… Continue reading Home from D.C. and pre-Halloweening
Good news- the swim meet is all over. Everything went fine. There were the usual hiccups here and there, but nothing terrible. The biggest issue was that the head coach had set a ticket limit of 250 tickets per session (a.m and p.m.) because our pool just doesn't have that much space for spectating. He… Continue reading Meet is over + a day I’ve been looking forward to
