Loving that my daughter is settling in at college in her new digs. She’s sharing a campus house with four of her fellow ultimate players and they’re running a program this year aimed at empowering girls through sports. Their mission is “to support the next generation and the current generation of young women by giving them a means of developing and maintaining leadership, sportsmanship, and a healthy lifestyle, both in terms of mind and body.” Aidan and her roommates will be writing regularly on this blog throughout the academic year.
Enjoying a very quiet house as my other child, who is really not a child anymore, is off on a school trip this week, visiting prospective colleges. Yep. That’s going to be happening again. I swear, I haven’t recovered from the first go-round.
Supporting Dan who is entering his second week of teaching. Can I just say this to all of you teachers out there? HOLY WOW! How do you do it? Truly. I bow to you all. Any words of support or wisdom from you teachers would be greatly appreciated. Dan is experiencing many highs but this is a huge change for him, and much different than student teaching was.
Checking out various concepts for Traveler’s Notebooks. I decided to buy my very first one (this one) and figured I’d see if I could find any ways to make it useful for documenting. So far, I just love to smell it. Is that weird? If you’re a Traveler’s Notebook kind of gal, what do I absolutely need to know?
Working on making stuff that hopefully people will want to buy. That’s pretty much my business motto, people. I will say this: I do have a really super cute set of Christmas stamps coming soon! Excited to get my hands on them and to start playing with them. The main thing I love Christmas stamps for is decorating my holiday card envelopes. Favorite thing about holiday mail for sure!
Watching Narcos on Netflix. That Pablo Escobar… he was a very bad man.
Eating well and taking care of myself. Sometimes I feel like summer is a time when I am much less regimented which is code for: too much red wine and Goldfish. I’ve been asked if I’ll be running Fit in 2017 and the answer is “Hells yes!” That class keeps me focused on my health and while the core content will be the same, there will be new video messages each month. That’s coming in December.
Celebrating another year with a normal mammogram. Ladies, if you need to make an appointment, by all means, do!
What are you doing right now?
