Weekly Happenings: This past week, I was in a bit of a funk…I suppose it was a result of getting back into real life after having partied it up with Tracie fora few days there. Don’t get me wrong, I love living in Texas, but man, there are times where I still get struck with waves of homesickness for my family and friends that knock me back a few paces. When that happens, I’ve found that I need to look around and recount my many, many blessings (my immediate family, the new friends I have made here, our beautiful home, the fact that I can stay home to raise our children, and many, many more). When I’m able to do that, I can put that grumpy gal back in her corner and feel more like myself. This was a pretty average week as far as activities go, so that has helped me get back into the groove of things, too.
The Weekly Weather: It’s kind of been all over the place. We’ve had warm days, hot days, cool days, dry days, soupy humid days…pretty typical for this time of year when we’re kind of in-between summer and winter, haha.
What Paul’s Been Up To: He worked from home this week, which was nice for when I needed to run a few errands that were easier done sans bringing the toddler with me. I’m so grateful for such a supportive spouse!
What Sarah’s Been Up To: I had a couple nights where I got together with small groups of people for some fun activities: a girls’ night where we each brought some fun items and exchanged them amongst ourselves and then a movie night with my book club friends where we watched a movie adaptation of one of the books we just read.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s battled an allergy attack this past week that he seems to be getting better from finally…and he still is enjoying going to school in-person.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: Her imaginative play has just exploded this week and she’s getting a bit better at entertaining herself (without destroying the house, haha) rather than wanting me to entertain her all of the time.
