Monthly Recap | March 2017

I really slacked at writing this past month. I wrote three times in the month of March. Either I didn’t feel the need to write or I got lazy, either way, it didn’t happen. So, here I sit, writing a blog post while I listen to my Discovery Weekly Spotify playlist. Mikhail is home sick […]

Things turning around?

I’m in a zone. Picture it – I’ve got my sweats on. I just got the boys on the bus. It’s dark in the house, the only light shining through is the darkness of the gloomy, rainy day outside. The light from my laptop screen is brightening my face. I’ve got my feet up. I’ve […]

Weekly Recap | Week 09

Although the week is not through, I thought I’d come and write my weekly recap anyway. I promise to not only talk about work. The week started off right. I was starting my own shift this week. I was worried how having to stay until 4 pm would affect me compared to getting out at […]

Not a Recap

I contemplating writing this entry tomorrow evening and calling it a weekly recap. My problem is that Mike is gone, Mikhail in bed, Nick at a sleepover, and I’m left to fend for myself. With nothing to do, I decided to write this entry now. I got my Discover Weekly Playlist on Spotify playing and […]

Weekly Recap | Week 6

So, I’ve been doing these Project Life scrapbook pages with the Android app. Every week, per the rules of the Project 52 challenge, I have been scrapbooking one page for every week. I normally do this on Saturday morning when we are at basketball. Yes, that means we don’t include Saturday night in our weekly […]

One Week.

I have one week before beginning the next chapter of my life. Today starts day one of zen. Heh. I kinda have to laugh at that because today has been anything but zen. I woke up this morning with a chip on my shoulder and just crabby! I was under the impression the boys would […]

I want to look back and write some of the things that happened this year. I am going […]

Ups and Downs

It has been two weeks since I wrote an actual entry. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs since then. Lack of sleep or lack of sanity may have played a factor in both. School Stuff So the boys have officially been in school two full weeks. Actually, they’ve had a total of six (five, […]

Twas The Night Before…

Twas the night before school started, when all through the town, the parents were cheering… It was a riotous sound! By 9, kids were washed and tucked into bed… Where memories of homework filled them with dread! New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too! New teachers, new friends…Their anxiety grew! The parents just giggled when […]

State Fair and More Fun

So this week has been harsh. I ruptured my ear drum on Tuesday. I went to Urgent Care and had the normal doctor, who is always there, say that he couldn’t even see in my ear to see if it was ruptured. He wrote me out a prescription for an antibiotic that he ALWAYS writes […]

One Week Later

So it’s been a week since I last wrote. I did not take the time to read my last post so I don’t entirely know what I wrote about other than writing about work. I guess I wanted to give a short little update since then. Work Life So, I worked Tuesday-Thursday this week in […]

Motivated but Lazy.

That describes my mood to a tee! I am motivated to get some things done but so incredibly lazy and not willing to do anything. Ugh! It starts with the fact that I haven’t done anything today minus tell Mikhail to drink his Miralax and read organizing and cleaning blogs. It started on Thursday. Mikhail […]

Moments Peace

I have a few moments peace right now. The boys are in summer school. I am doing laundry and cleaned up the kitchen this morning. Yesterday was interesting. Mikhail woke up with the moans and groans, and of course, the growls. He didn’t want to go to summer school. Lovely. He was super excited about […]

School Year Complete.

Well, another year has passed. It will officially be summer break as of 11:20 am tomorrow. I will have a 7th grader and 2nd grader. Can you believe it!? I surely can’t. It’s surreal that we’ve lived in this house for one year now. It’s unbelievable that entire school year has passed. Wow!  They did […]

Overwhelmed.

I have been incredibly overwhelmed the past few weeks. I feel like everyone has these such high standards for me to take on and I cannot even come close to meeting them. They want the house to look a certain way. They want the kids acting a certain way. I need to find a job […]

Hot Damn.

I got my blanket on, my feet kicked up, and Pandora blasted … time to write an entry. Mike and I just ate lunch together thanks to me. I ran to Jersey Mike’s. Not what he was hoping (Kopp’s) but it was food nonetheless. You see, I won a $200 American Express gift card on […]
