Well, it's day six of Spring Break (I totally count the weekends) and you know what I've accomplished? Very little. Of course I was in Kentucky for the first three days. Then yesterday I went horseback riding and read (I've finished two books this week--that's two more than all of 2017!). This morning I found… Continue reading Motivation (#sol17 30/31)
I'm sitting at the vet. I've been here for about half an hour now. I'm here everyday to pick up G from daycare (insert eye roll) but today he actually needed to be checked out by the vet. So here I am, waiting to talk to the doc himself. While I've been here I've seen… Continue reading The vet (#sol17 20/31)
Last Spring my husband and I lost our mind and decided we should get a new puppy--because our two older dogs were just not enough. (Insert eye-rolling emoji here). So in June we found him through PetFinder.com. He was too freaking cute and we had to have him. I wrote about all of that here… Continue reading Sit, Stay, Good Boy (#SOL17 11/31)
"You'll change your mind." This has been said to me more times than I can count. Let me back up and start at the beginning of the most recent conversation that ended with this phrase. It was a pleasant morning first semester, I had just punched in and was headed up to my classroom. Walking quickly,… Continue reading You’ll Change your Mind (#SOL17 8/31)
What do you want for dinner? This is probably my least favorite question in the world (and I’m a teacher, so it is outranking a LOT of questions from surly teenagers). The worst part is, I’m usually the one asking it. My least favorite response: I don’t care. Now, if it were true that… Continue reading How to answer the dreaded question: What’s for dinner?
I am an Erin Condren LOVER! For real, but this year I decided to try something different: I purchased a Living Well planner. Since it's only January 6th, I haven't decided if I like it better than my EC Life Planner or not, but it's mine for the year, so I'm going to make it… Continue reading Adding Sticker Sheets to My Living Well Planner
This morning I woke up to the smell of dog poop. That's never good. 6:37 am. Wanda May had gotten out of bed, which I had sensed, and I had waited for her to scratch at the door. I heard her squirreling around, and then she came back to bed. Good. Back to sleep. But… Continue reading Worst. Morning. Ever.
Last year I took on the Pop Sugar Reading Challenge, and I almost completed it. I definitely read more than 52 books, but I don't think a lot of them really fit in the categories. My plan was to try again this year, but so far it hasn't happened. Over Thanksgiving break I read the… Continue reading Book Review: Little Black Lies
Recently I visited my cousin and her husband in Florida. While there we ate stir fry. I've always been a fan of stir fry, but now I'm obsessed, and it's all because of those noodles you see in there. Dayum, they're good. So good, in fact, that I've had them twice in the past two weeks.… Continue reading Stir Fry for Dinner
