I spent time mapping out our summer yesterday. I used a genius page from the Organize365 spring/summer planner that showed 11 weeks laid out on one page — sadly I cannot share that here because it seems unwise to provide a road map of all of our family’s future movements over the next 2.5 months. However, it is now up on our fridge for reference.
It was pretty eye opening, especially considering I’d already spent time putting the summer’s events into various planners. Every single weekend is either:
- Big camp-related day (putting kids on flight + getting them back!)
Of course there is the possibility that some portion of this will be messed up when we get COVID again (though Josh has this hope that maybe we already did and didn’t realize? Probably wishful thinking . . .). But even so, I will try not to lose my (*%# when that happens because there is plenty of fun on the horizon.
All that said, this weekend is a JOSH-CALL one. Today we have lots of plans – a school event (Art Walk – should be cool!) and a birthday party. Plus the Cooper City Shred-A-Thon (drop off paper to shred, free!!!!). This last event is exciting to no one but me, but I have some tax records from the mid-oughts that are getting shredded today. Yay.
I promised to update you all on what was in the lovingly prepared birthday gift bag. The answer is above (x2) and also a fancy 6-month coffee subscription. LOVE the mug!! Not currently for sale. But maybe someday. Ha!
ALSO, my romper came (nice timing, Boden!) and I love it. Ignore my messy hair no makeup lewk and focus on the cute outfit.
It was a totally low key birthday (which I expected and was fine with – we have plenty of action coming plus we had a fancy dinner out last weekend). BUT I got some perfect gifts: my sister sent my a Washi Tape Shop gift card (!!!!), my parents sent me chocolate, my SIL sent me a book, and our nanny got me Lululemon leggings and a matching sports bra. Such lovely and thoughtful things. I fell asleep while watching Harry Potter 2 with the kids at 8:50pm. HAPPY 42.
I also went with A to get her hair cut in a thunderstorm, which if you know me is a true act of love.
Off to hopefully get in some Peloton yoga while the kids watch some TV and then DOCUMENT SHREDDING TIME. Happy Saturday . . .
