1- I FINALLY WENT TO THE TAILOR. And it took less than 30 minutes door to door. And it wasn’t that hard. And it wasn’t even that $$$. I am getting 3 pairs of jeans, 1 skirt, and 1 dress hemmed. (Lani are you proud?)
This may have haunted my goals lists since like, June. Excited not to include it in November!
2- Gratitude: I should have linked up Kae‘s blog yesterday, since it is dedicated to this topic! It’s interesting how many of us have become particularly aware of the positive things in our lives during this crazy time. I am very jealous of her recent photos: Outside.
3- School. I continue to very happy about how the school year has gone thus far, considering current circumstances. Annabel is slated to return to in person next week, but without her teacher I’m just not sure it’s going to be worth it. We already received a notice instructing children to bring (among 37 other things; is she supposed to tow a truck?):
“Personal outside equipment to enjoy for recess. Nothing that is “sharable” or able to be passed back and forth like a ball, but something like a Skip-It, or jump rope. Children will be required to stay 6 feet apart during recess.”
(Well! I for one did not know Skip-it was still around; turns out it has morphed into a Twister product but still exists. I am not ordering one. Yet.)
((We are going to let her go for a day or so, but unless she really finds it beneficial I think we’ll just keep her home until things are more normal, as it has been working well.))
(((Also, the school just announced that next Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are early release days — I guess to work out the kinks in the transition? Blah.)))
4- 0/3 kids cried during their flu shot visit yesterday! So proud. Also, it’s getting less horrific to bring them all places just from a kid-wrangling perspective. This was particularly noticeable because it’s been so infrequent over the past ~7 months!
5- I am gearing up for a Josh-CALL weekend. We may venture out to get Halloween decorations, as they really want to put up some “friendly bats + pumpkins”. I still yearn for a @#$%^& playground!
