Yesterday was a doozy without any sleep but today was fantastic! Wood Sprite and I babysat her cousin M, who is adorable and funny and loves poop emojis. She’s two and adorable, too. This week I’m loving watching M as well as…
my tea ❤ What would I do without it?
a Subway dinner with my love after some intermittent fasting (a little underwhelming after my Cheesecake Factory salad on Tuesday, but then again I also forgot my avocado at home)
shopping shenanigans. Indy and Wood Sprite act SO goofy while we shop.
Wood Sprite being such a big help with M. She cleans up each room after we leave without me even asking. ❤
Heat! Running water! Bathrooms! Oh my! Yesterday not only was I sleep deprived but I was also caught in the rain with my terrible shoes that left me water-logged all day, no working bathroom unless I paid to use one (which I eventually did) and general crankiness. I'm SO glad to be home, and so glad my dad was able to take us home earlier than we expected. Wednesdays are definitely long days for us! They are SO worth it to Wood Sprite, but they are long, and even longer now that I don't let myself have my favorite noodles each week!
snuggling with Indy and Wood Sprite on the couch. I'm so glad she still likes snuggling with her parents at 13. Well, on some days, at least!
cat and dog snuggles, too! M loves all the critters and the dogs especially love her.
What are you loving this week?
Writing all night to finish before Wood Sprite’s class all day tomorrow. I tried really hard to finish beforehand but I just had too many deadlines and events scheduled, so tomorrow I’ll be going without sleep. It will be a long one but I see lots of coffee in the forecast!
playing Parks and Rec trivia with Indy and Wood Sprite (at the library earlier tonight)!
finishing Marvel trivia in second place (last night)!
enjoying a date and walk with my love while Wood Sprite’s in a coding class. We bought her some cool socks and candy for Valentine’s next week while we browsed.
seeing Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, The Musical (but Wood Sprite got sick and we had to leave before the second act, which is why Gizmo is sitting in the sick bucket that was never used after we got home)
eating our annual Cheesecake Factory feast, which we do every winter. I don’t know why their salad dressings are the best but they are, and you can bet I had stuffed mushrooms.
getting taxes done
going to the Magic House for Homeschool Day
did I mention writing?
watching Justice League
reading Crown of Midnight, Akata Warrior, Excalibur (first issues!), Binti: Home, Behind You, Good Omens, and What’s Up Doc?
drinking Tazo vanilla macaroon tea
making a countdown calendar for one of my best friends
making clay dolls for another friend and ourselves
planning out curriculum, moon club, cemetery tours, etc.
finalizing details for co-op, 4-H, library programs, a leatherworking class, a minifig painting workshop and more this weekend
What are you up to?
