Clearly I have not kept up with my “I’m not going to follow the and post every day!” Ahh, such is life. I was really hoping I’d have the time and mentality to get it done, but with my housewarming party on Saturday and traveling last weekend for my nephew’s birthday, I just couldn’t find the time or motivation to sit down and write, so here we are! My plan from here is to complete the challenge, but Blogtember may have to blend into Blogtober…
That being said I think I’m going to try to keep in order of the prompts, so today would beeeeeeeee “What are you up to currently?”
Ladies and gentlemen, currently I am up to complete and utter chaos!
Y’all, lately I have been working a lot. I always say that we don’t have a busy season in my line of work and while that’s true, it means that any and all seasons can be unpredictably busy. Over the last year my boss has gone after and won a lot of cool projects, but now it’s time to pay up in blood, sweat and tears (okay, it’s mostly sweat…).
My Odyssey of the Mind team practices will start up next week and I am so excited to get back into it. We’ll be doing the balsa wood structure problem again this year and I’m really looking forward to the fresh start with a new team (okay, six kids are the same and there will only be one new kid). It’s something I look forward to all week and it’s nice to be able to participate more fully in my community.
My housewarming party is this weekend! I’ve been looking forward to it for a while and ordered the cutest invitations. Like all good things though, there’s a big but, and the but is…I have 50+ (I actually am now thinking this number is closer to 75+, ayiyi) people coming to my house on Saturday expecting food, drinks and fun. It’s going to be a great time, but has taken a lot of planning, coordination and delegation on my part.
In other news, my roommate moved in! I wasn’t sure how I’d actually feel once he got here (I definitely got a little used to living alone), but so far it has been amazing! We really don’t cross paths very much because we’re both so busy, but the rare 20 minutes to an hour we spend together every couple of days is really fun!
Nutmeg and I have been going to puppy kindergarten to get her all trained up! She will graduate from level 1 next week, but I’ve decided to start level 2 the same night, so she’ll move right into 1st grade. My dad and his latest addition Uno will be in the same class, so I’m hoping this gives Nutmeg and Uno a chance to bond. Also Nutmeg was spayed last week; isn’t she the cutest in her cone of shame?!
Last weekend I did a quick one night/28 hour trip down to DC and Williamsburg for my nephew’s 3rd birthday party. It was a great time and I love that he’s at such a fun age right now. It’s awesome!
What have you been up to? Do you feel like your summer is simmering down or you fall is gearing up?
