This past week has been FUN! And, I'm tired now. Hahaha. Yesterday was our last "action" day of this Thanksgiving week, which as you know by now, has been full of theater performances, shopping, cooking, lots of amazing family time, Thanksgiving, decorating, work and more. My parents were slated to leave yesterday (Saturday), after being… Continue reading A 4-part busy Saturday; now ready for a quiet day!
If you see something, say something
On Sunday I sat in the bleachers right behind the player's bench at Asher's soccer game. I spent much of the game observing his coach as he interacted with the boys. This was not Asher's real coach, but rather a sub, or fill in coach. It's a long story, but the real coach for Asher's… Continue reading If you see something, say something
Writing down things I accomplished
I was thinking this morning, as I filled out my little daily journal page....I am so glad I started including a section of "things I accomplished". I've been doing this religiously for a couple years now. I'm currently sitting in my car outside a morning swim practice, so I don't have my journal with me… Continue reading Writing down things I accomplished
Non-fall fun weekend :)
Happy Monday! My desk calendar also informs me that today is the "Queen's Birthday" celebration holiday in Western Australia, so, happy birthday to the Queen, if you happen to live in Western Australia. 🙂 How was your weekend? Mine was good. I do find that despite "looking forward" to the weekend/ no work/ etc... sometimes… Continue reading Non-fall fun weekend 🙂
Weekend happenings + misc.
Happy Tuesday. It feels like it's been a bit since my last regular post, but I guess it was just last Friday. How was your weekend? Mine, again, felt quite full. This is just the reality when Ethan has soccer tournaments (as he did again this weekend). When you have multiple games, spread out across… Continue reading Weekend happenings + misc.
Whew, I’m back
Hello and happy Wednesday! It's been a while. These last days have been FULL but fun. Asher and I left around 2 pm Friday afternoon for a 3 day swim meet ~1 1/2 hours away (but near my parents' house). He swam right away Friday evening, so we went straight to the pool. We got… Continue reading Whew, I’m back
Weekend + Kid-free time!!!
This has been a really glorious weekend so far. Saturday I spent a bunch of time alone with the boys. Ethan had a soccer game an hour north of here at 9 am, but Ivan had to work for a bit so I took them by myself. Weather was really nice and afterwards we stopped… Continue reading Weekend + Kid-free time!!!
A welcome workweek
Oh dear lord. This is my current state: A little dazed, confused, tired and, kind of physically sore- as if I actually did some very strenuous physical activity this weekend (but I didn't). WHAT A WEEKEND. This was probably definitely the "busiest feeling" weekend since like, early 2020 at least, if not before. I swore… Continue reading A welcome workweek
Last couple days in pics
It's been a nice last few days. Some sunny weather, got my 2nd dose of vaccine (no side effects with either, except maybe a tiny headache last night?), some much needed cleaning, soccer games, outside time, Mexican food.... Here's a little recap: *A lunchtime walk on Friday. I did a short 27 minute core workout… Continue reading Last couple days in pics
