It is now November, somehow, so I'm going to share my "Fall 2022" recap today. I shared my Summer 2022 recap here, and I enjoyed that format and putting it together. Fall is not technically over yet, but in my head, November kicks off more of "holiday season", to me. So, for me and any… Continue reading Fall 2022 Recap
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
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
Some misc. things today..... 1- I read a short story about decision making yesterday: A psychologist gathered up 8 professional horse handicappers and told them he wanted to see how well they could predict the winners of horse races. Their test was to predict 40 horse races in four rounds. In round 1: Each gambler… Continue reading Information and overconfidence in decision making… plus other misc.
It's officially fall today! The weather is taking a sudden dive precisely on the Autumn Equinox here today- it was 85 on Monday, and here is the current temp and forecast: Probably going to feel a bit shocking! But 'tis the season. We are also moving officially into what I consider "the holiday season". It… Continue reading Officially fall (aka “gratitude season”)
Friday the boys didn't have school, so I took the morning off and we went to a pumpkin farm/ corn maze. At 11 and 13, they are getting a little bit past the "get super excited about a pumpkin patch" age....but they agreed to go. (I got the feeling that if I had said, "Oh,… Continue reading Moments to cherish
I think because it's been so warm, I'm having a hard time believing that it's already October 13th today. But it is! We haven't done too much yet in the way of "fall fun". I'm thinking this probably isn't going to be the year that we do "all the things" for fall. With the various… Continue reading Some fall fun
I haven't done one of these in a long time! Feeling it today, though. 🙂 1- It is fall. Being the fall loving person that I am, I know it's odd I haven't addressed this fact yet on the blog. We are actually having a snap of cooler (but in a lovely, beautiful way, not… Continue reading Friday 5: fall books, XC, meals, WFH & workouts!
For the first time in a few weeks, we didn't have a soccer tournament, AND Ethan's league game was a home game (aka- the best kind of soccer game, 3 minutes from our house). It still felt plenty full, but simply being HOME more was just what I needed. I've mentioned I had been feeling… Continue reading A productive/nice weekend
After getting to bed too late last night (my fault/choice), I woke up around 3 am after a creepy dream. It had a very scary (and very realistic!) climax which jolted me awake and literally had adrenaline buzzing through me for a few minutes. It was a perfect representation of how the mind/physical body are… Continue reading Beautiful day/ sleepless night
