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….
This weekend felt really long!! I think it was because we did a lot of different things. It seems when you do one, single activity all day, maybe time goes more quickly? Or at least the perception of that time, looking back on it. But when you transition from one thing to another to another,… Continue reading Another full weekend- but, happy 🙂
The end of this week has felt overwhelming to me. Despite our heat wave, which has been a welcome change, and has made everything feel nice, bright and very "summery". But I don't know, I just feel...overwhelmed. My brain dump list from last week has remained untouched, except I've thought of a bunch of things… Continue reading Some complaints + gratitude 🙂
Happy Friday! I feel like I need a few days off, preferably before the boys get done with school on May 26th. I'm going a bit nuts with a bunch of lingering "projects" that I just don't seem to have time to get to. Yes, I have some free time that maybe I could "use… Continue reading Nagging to-dos, no time
*Walking. I've walked M, T and Th this week so far. Weather was crummy early in the week/ cold, so I used the treadmill. Yesterday, we had a beautiful, warm day, so I got outside for 20 minutes before starting work. *Stretching and workouts. My workout on the schedule was a simple one- a recovery… Continue reading Some stuff about my week
Asher is really busy right now. Obviously he is back in school, but he also has play practice after school, volleyball Tuesday/ Thursday and swim practice almost every night. It's a lot! Possibly (probably?) bordering on "too much", but we decided to allow it because it's a fairly short period in time. (The play is… Continue reading A 12 year old’s perception of “free time”
We're home! We got home last night, actually (Saturday). The flight home was a bit longer than on the way over- maybe 7 1/2 hours, but everything went smoothly. One nice thing flying home from Ireland is that they do a U.S. "Pre-Clearance" for Immigration and Customs before you leave Ireland. Then, you just get… Continue reading Back in the USA + my worry stone!
Hello hello! Didn't mean to go MIA for a while there. We were gone all weekend for Asher's State competition in Milwaukee, which isn't too far from my parents' house. Asher swam Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and we ended up staying overnight at my parents' until Monday morning. (I took a half day off, the… Continue reading Weekend and tired
Yesterday was kind of an overcast day with some snow flurries. I worked from home, as usual, and also worked out from home and was otherwise just home all day, until around 3:30. At that point, I went upstairs and flipped the fireplace on and just kind of sat there for a minute as I… Continue reading Want vs. reality
This is definitely the "busy season" for many people, especially moms. You hear a lot about it....every year is the same. Everyone is stressed and harried and HAVING FUN and MAKING MEMORIES, people! 🙂 I'm guilty, too. I'm busy. I have a long to do list. It feels overwhelming. Some things are "want to dos",… Continue reading Christmas crazies and Bad Moms
