I Put on Real Clothes for THIS?!

Put on real clothes and makeup and was all ready to go out and buy the college kid his textbooks. He pulled out his laptop, typed in the bookstore name, entered his class names, then 5 minutes and $300 later we were done. Guess I could've stayed in my comfy clothes this morning.

I am now the parent of a college student

David's first day of college went well. I was allowed to take a photo of him, but not to share it. Hahahaha. I think that will be how the entirety of the future with Adult David ends up. Thanks to everyone that messaged or otherwise asked about it. πŸ™‚

Fun Board Game Day!

Another fun board game day with friends. πŸ™‚ We're always happy to host our monthly friend time. Maybe one day we'll get the midkid to play along with us.

Fun Day!

We're a little loopy after March-a-thon, so we're singing new verses of "What Shall We Do With A Drunken Sailor," and Ree is all "Your PTA ladies are going to be soooooo confused because it isn't even the "Day of the Irish!" WHAT?! 'Umm, "4 Leaf Clover Day?" "Pot of Gold Day?" "Leprechaun Day?" "GREEN … Continue reading Fun Day!

Writing Group

This week I joined another writing group through my public library. The library had advertised it as a new group, but once I got there I found out that it had actually been a group that had met for a few years in another location and been transplanted over to the library, much like my … Continue reading Writing Group

Having that moment/series of ongoing moments where I realize that my interests/priorities have shifted in the last year. Pondering changes that will be needed to support things that are floating to the surface and how to gently extricate myself from things that used to be higher on the list. #thismessagebroughttoyoubytherapy #changeisgrowth #closingdoorsopeningwindows

Mystery Boxes

So the other day another mystery box arrived. This one contained tea. I feel like I should shout that because it was like a 50 pack assortment of Twinings. Once again, don't know who sent it, but am thoroughly delighted. Immediately separated it into "Have Tried Before" (right side of box) and "Have Not Tried … Continue reading Mystery Boxes

Sadness

I have just had such a weird summer. I have been so sad about so many things, but like my kids growing up should be a good thing and if my brain was normal it would be fine, but it’s not and so I get sad instead of just a little bittersweet about these sorts … Continue reading Sadness

21st wedding anniversary

We started the night by going to 1836 Texas Kitchen for dinner. Nick really loved all of his food. Mine was just okay, but I did get the novelty of trying a Cucumber Margarita. We finished up our anniversary night with the by-now-traditional stops at Half Price Books and World Market. πŸ™‚ At Half Price, … Continue reading 21st wedding anniversary
