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
#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.
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
OOF I am BACK. Back in “normal blog voice”, no longer writing in “travel mode”. 😊 Re-emerging into regular life has been…fine. Considering our flight got in around 11:45 p.m. on Tuesday night, and we both had to work on Wednesday. 😂 (I know, I know, I know…we are gluttons for punishment. We do it… Continue reading Post-Vacation mode: Bad, Good, Neutral
A couple weeks ago, my work computer got some sort of upgrade. After that, every time I opened a new window in our web browser (Microsoft Edge), it brought up this "home screen" of sorts from Microsoft. (It used to bring up some sort of hospital menu page? I don't know why this changed.) Anyway,… Continue reading Change the “bad news” default!
I'm happy to see the sun again this morning! (View from my sunroom window. This pic sort of makes it look like we live in a jungle treehouse, which is definitely not the case. 🤣 This is just a close-up of our magnolia tree. Trying to capture the rising sun without capturing all the rain… Continue reading Thursday misc.
Hey blog world. This has not been my "most favoritest week" ever (I know that's grammatically incorrect, I just felt like saying it that way). All's good, just feeling edgy and kinda stressed out, but, c'est la vie. Some times are like that. The kids are staying up TOO LATE (has been pushing 10:30 the… Continue reading Random check in
I had a rather stressful day yesterday. No need to elaborate, but it was just mentally taxing for me, and I have a lingering dull headache right now as a result. There were some good things, though. 1- The weather was spectacular. It cooled down and the sky was a brilliant blue all day. 2-… Continue reading On to a new day
*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
I overslept today....darn it. I hate when that happens! I made the mistake of leaving my phone (alarm) on my nightstand and wound up hitting the snooze button several times. (I usually keep it on other side of the room, so I have to GET UP to turn my alarm off...). Anyway, 3 brief, random… Continue reading 3 Random kid updates
