1. Writing today from a coffee shop near Ethan's (new) high school.... It was my day to drive to the 7:30 a.m. strength and conditioning class. So Ethan and I were up and out the door by ~6:50 to pick up his friend and drive across town. This whole thing (the distance/drive) is going to… Continue reading Things on a Thursday
Misc. Saturday: a dog, 1st high school event and a personality test!
Happy Saturday, annnnnd, it's snowing right now. For the love of Pete, can the snow please go away already?!?! 😩😩 On the bright side, I am not the parent who had to leave by 6 a.m. to drive Asher one hour away to a 7:45 a.m. soccer tournament. I am the parent sitting with a… Continue reading Misc. Saturday: a dog, 1st high school event and a personality test!
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.
(Very) random Friday list
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
Post-Vacation mode: Bad, Good, Neutral
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
Change the “bad news” default!
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
On to a new day
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
