Today was supposed to be a several things that it wasn't. Kids were supposed to be back at school, but the district is having what they call a "Community Mitigation Period" instead. They're cleaning the schools and we're supposed to be back on schedule next week. Ree is a little bit wumbly over it because … Continue reading Social Distancing
Our Halloween... over at my parents house on Woodhaven, of course. 🙂 We had a pretty good turnout, but still had one whole bag of candy leftover at the end of the night. We watched HalloweenTown, but not HocusPocus because my children have decided to rebel and say they “hate” HocusPocus. Ah well, at least … Continue reading Halloween 2019
Chaperoning, finally. First rainy game in a long time.
Ree and I spent this afternoon working the concession stand at the TJC game to raise money for the REL Band. I had a great vantage point to watch the TJC band in the stands from my nacho & hot dog station. Then I ducked out at halftime to watch our David march with the … Continue reading TJC Game Today
Chronic illness style fun: My exciting night has been spent stalking my middle child at the football game via friends posts & videos, listening to top 10 lists on watch mojo with Nick, and generally resting so I can be ready to train new PTA leaders first thing in the morning. 🙂

The kids ate these … Continue reading Protein Enriched Muffins of Joy
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.
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. 🙂
I'm reading this book called "Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie" because my dyslexic kid read it this summer for Pre-AP homework and loved it so much he's on his 3rd re-reading and man, reading this book as a former band nerd immediately after a summer band banquet for my kid... I have all the feels. … Continue reading Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie
I have let this blog flounder for far too long and today is my first day back at it. We have had a wacky, crazy year. I'm not even sure that I should try to summarize it, but find myself wanting to. Let's start where I left off... oh my. Okay. That's a rough place … Continue reading Hello again!
