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 🙂

When I Wasn’t Reading

Unfortunately I had a bunch of sick kids this week. Today is the first day all 4 are actually back in school. We also had the varsity football banquet for our senior, which was so bittersweet. I’ve spent most of this week medicating, sanitizing, and washing bedding. Is it Spring yet?

What’s Up this Weekend

We have a 3 day weekend and we have absolutely nothing planned except relaxing and enjoying some football on Sunday. I need to grab some groceries but other than that I plan to wear my comfy pajamas for 99% of the weekend! I’m trying to fight off whatever devil virus my kids had this week so I cancelled all plans. Next week is super busy so this weekend of nothing is much needed.

When I Wasn’t Reading

This was my kids’ first week back to school after a 16 day winter break. It was hard, y’all. So hard. Cranky kids, cranky mom…even the dogs were cranky. But we survived. I’m not even sure what I did all week- laundry, cleaning and organizing, grocery shopping, and took one kid to 2 different doctor appointments. I’m so ready for the weekend!

What’s Up this Weekend

We have no set plans this weekend. Three kids have social plans but other than that I think we’re just going to stay home and watch the NFL playoffs. And do more laundry, of course.
