When I Wasn’t Reading

I spent a lot of time volunteering for my kids’ school this week. I’m co-chair of the used uniform committee and it’s a ton of work. We’re starting a new initiative and it’s taking a whole lot of my free time. But we love our school so it’s worth it!

What’s Up this Weekend

We have a 3 day weekend for Presidents Day! I’m spending it volunteering at the school but the kids all have some major social plans this weekend. So daddy gets to play uber driver for once instead of me ๐Ÿ™‚

When I Wasn’t Reading

I spent the week battling a virus that mimicked the flu so I spent most of this week lying on the couch watching stupid TV. I read some but the headaches were so bad I couldn’t read as much as I wanted. It was torture.

What’s Up this Weekend

I wish I could say nothing but that rarely happens in our house. Two kids have sleepovers planned plus a birthday party. I have a mountain of work to catch up on for the house, the laundry, and my volunteer positions. It’ll be a busy weekend but I always feel so much better when I’m caught up on everything. Also….taxes. My goal is to get our taxes filed this weekend in advance of any possible government shut down. sigh. Adulting sucks. But I have these great library books waiting for me so I’ll push through!

When I Wasn’t Reading

Unfortunately I spent most of this week laid out with a yucky stomach bug. It was awful and I didn’t even feel well enough to read for more than a few minutes at at time. Thankfully I’m almost back to normal and none of my kids caught the virus!

What’s Up this Weekend

Well obviously the biggest thing going on this weekend is the Superbowl! We’re hosting this year so we’ll have a house full of people…as long as none of my offspring suddenly decide to get sick. Saturday will be spent cleaning, running errands, and getting ready for the big game. I think two of my kids have friends spending the night Saturday night to. We fly by the seat of our pants on the weekends! 



2019 Monthly Goals: February

I swear January was the longest month. We’ve battled illness and appointments and I had a lovely few weeks of stress induced insomnia. This feels like the 548th day of January! I’m over winter! So lets see how I did on my January goals.

When I Wasn’t Reading

I spent a lot of time this week sorting through my kids school uniforms and pulling out the massive amount of things that don’t fit so I can replace them. Now I just need to sell the old stuff to pay for the new stuff. Good times.

What’s Up this Weekend

Saturday we have a birthday party and a whole list of errands to run before two kids have sleepovers at our house. Sunday I have to spent most of the day at school sorting through all the used uniform donations in prep for our Spring sale. I’m dragging poor Tyler with me so he can earn some service hours. He’s thrilled ๐Ÿ™‚
