Getting @*& Done

Gwinne flatteringly called me fabulous in her recent post, but for the record: I get behind, too. I am looking at my Q1 goals list and “tsk”-ing to myself about some of the things that didn’t happen. HELLO 2017 photobook, someday you will come…

5 on a Friday: School Update, Time, and More

1- Time Change Woes. How is everyone doing with this? It’s been a mixed bag over here. Despite being over 5 days in, last night the two big kids would. not. go. to. bed, and each morning getting them up for school is like…

Time Blocking & Admin

I really like my organization system. It really works. I haven’t changed much in the past year, but I did recently come across some old HTCs (Hobonichi Techo Cousins!) and it made me realize that I have definitely honed things significantly over the years.…

Weekend // Etc

Another weekend in the books! I semi-documented it in Instagram Stories again, under the Weekend 2 highlight if you are curious – the Stories medium really is perfect for a play-by-play/day-in-the-life sort of thing. Sometimes it hits me that these family weekends are finite.…

Travel Weekend

Weekend Report: Date Weekend Edition

Josh and I had not travelled sans kids since G was born. More specifically, I think our last couples trip was a weekend mini-getaway embedded into our family vacation in June of 2017, when I was pregnant with G (and feeling like trash!). Kacey…

Goals Reading

It’s MARCH (& 5 on a Friday)

1- OMG how is it March? I can’t be the only one who turned the page in my planner and literally gasped. Didn’t 2019 just start? Didn’t February just start? Apparently not. We are 16% of the way through already. The month passed by…

WordPress migration and site redesign – mostly complete!Β Β Still working on comment migration (I cannot lose your precious insights, even the ones from 2010!). (Amanda continues to work on this; I am glad I did not attempt to do it myself!) Ad network switch –…

Weekend Highs & Lows

I felt really triumphant about my recent solo parenting weekend, so one might think a lovely weekend in which both Josh and I were off would be easy peasy (lemon squeezy!), right? MEH. On the positive side, we celebrated Cameron’s birthday at Chuck E…
