C started on our community soccer team. A recreational league, no big deal right? Except practices are at 7 pm and have been going until at least 8:30 pm, Tuesday through Thursday.
I am not used to this disruption in our evening routine. Unfortunately (?), he really loves it. I had asked if it was permissible to drop off and the coach said . . . no. He’s an excellent coach – definitely on the intense side, but very engaging. I might try to ask again when the kids are more used to the routine. OR see if I can find a family on the list that wants to trade off being the sideline parent in charge of both kids.
As of now, Josh / myself / our nanny will try to split the days but man – it’s dark out there and this is in the middle of my typical bedtime routine with all 3!
Full Focus BINDER
Well this is kind of exciting! I have a special place in my heart for the Full Focus planner. Some people don’t love every section and now – they have a binder so can cherrypick and add blank extras!
I will be getting one to review and will share details. But they are available for sale now and I do have an affiliate link and code that will give you 10% off – see below!

I made a running friend! On the (sort of) minus side, she’s about 10x faster than me (former collegiate runner who can run a local 5K and just . . .win). On the plus side, she’s super nice and doesn’t mind running at my slower pace for weekly runs. Her sluggish warmup = my tempo 🙂
I haven’t run with anyone in years, and it was really nice. I had a BRF (Best Running Friend) in North Carolina and it definitely made running more fun AND she helped me get faster. You share lots of stuff when you are stuck on a long run together!
I’m sure that if one searches this blog hard enough, you will find posts ranting about the time change. Guess what? I think my kids have finally reached the stage where it’s not so terrible. Hooray! Yesterday G did wake up slightly early but she just went to the couch on her own for a bit – I found her there when I returned from my run at ~6:30!
We are under Tropical Storm warning and Hurricane watch and I am 98% sure the kids will have no school Wednesday. I hope they don’t cancel 2 days’ worth at once the way they did with the last storm (for the second day, the weather was PERFECT and there was zero reason the kids couldn’t be in school . . .).
Sad we are having to contend with so many of these, and so late! It does feel a bit apocalyptic.
