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
It's February! Cue everyone saying, "Oh my goodness, can you believe it's February already???" 😄 But it is crazy to me to realize that 2023 is 1/12th over already. I'm feeling pretty solid about how 2023 is going in terms of goals/ resolutions/ what have you so far. Habit Tracker: Read: 26/31 days Walk: 19/31… Continue reading 1 down!
So, how was your day?
Something that often makes me smile: Pretty much every day after school, at some point in the first 1-2 hours that the boys are home, Asher will casually pause and ask me, "So, how was your day today, mom?" I usually take a second to consider the question, because not all days are equal. The… Continue reading So, how was your day?
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.
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
3 on a Thursday: Gym, veggies, pants
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

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
A list of thoughts: teen related
1) Driving carpool is interesting. I had to pick up Ethan and 3 other 14-year-old boys from basketball yesterday. All of a sudden, I kind of felt like I was driving a van full of men. Out of the blue, their voices are deeper, their conversations are no longer so juvenile.... hmm. This is interesting… Continue reading A list of thoughts: teen related

Gosh, this week was supposed to be kind of a "down" week after our holiday festivities, but as usual, it's managed to still feel rather full! It's been a nice week, just maybe not as super low key as I thought it might be. Still haven't sorted my Christmas pictures, either! So stay tuned for… Continue reading This week
