Crazy Week

Wow! What a crazy week! We all had Monday off and I had a hair appointment in the afternoon, so Tom took Phoebe to the Sixers game in Philly. They had a great time. We also picked up Tom's car that morning. After I dropped him and Phoebe off with his car, he went to pick up his Dad and go to the game. I had a few hours of free time before my hair appt and I made the most of it. I went over to the juice place I love in Newark, DE and had a shot of wheatgrass. I also got to meet the owner, and she's really cool. I also got a great idea to get several shots with lids "to go" and freeze them for having them at home. Another lady was stopping by the shop to do just that. That might be a great way for me to get a shot of wheatgrass every day.

After at the juice shop, I went home and had an entire 50 minute yoga practice. There was no video or CD, just me, my book and doing as many poses as I wanted and trying some new things. It was awesome!!!

I went to get my hair done, and I've gone back to blonde. I couldn't take it anymore. I just didn't feel comfortable in bright pinks or reds with red hair, so a lot of my wardrobe was off limits. I never thought I'd be this comfortable being blonde. I used to rebel against it when I was younger. I hated people saying my light brown hair was "dirty blonde." I mean, I'm not a dumb blonde. Now it's almost a way for me to rebel that blondes can be smart too.

Work has been crazy all week, lots of meetings, the work is in full gear being back from the holidays. It's nice to know I have Monday off next week, as I took it off for Phoebe's school is closed for a teacher in-service. We've decided we will only do basic chores that day, and the rest of the day is going to be fun stuff. We're going to do crafts, play with her American Girl doll and legos, have a tea party with cookies we've baked. Basically, on Monday, I'm going to be a six year old! I can't wait!

Welcome back to the land of the blonde! It's funny, looking at your bio photo it's hard to imagine you with red hair. Was it fun? I've never had the guts to stray very far from my natural colour (like you, kind of a medium blonde). But we need more smart blondies on our team, so I'm glad you're back, lol!

Have fun being six tomorrow -- it sounds like a blast!

Does this mean we will not see the picture with the auburn hair?

How fun...

Schools are closed around me too for the same reason.

Phoebe's Fifth Grade School Picture

Here's Phoebe's 5th Grade School Picture.  I really like her in red or bright colors.  She's definitely becoming quite the little lady.

Hitting the Reset Button

The holidays are over and the decorations are put away.  Life is back to work and school and this is our first three day weekend after the holidays.  It's a Saturday morning, I'm missing my husband, and I'm ready to tackle our life that is not quite living up to our expectations these days.  I've decided to pull up my big girl panties today and get started on making our life the dream life we've always wanted.  I'm pulling out my bullet journal and using this weekend to take charge of our life.  By the time Tom is home for good I want things to be the way we've always wanted them.




What do I need to work on:

Our house is not setup the way I'd like it to be.  I can't wait to get hardwood floors and want projects not to be half finished.  You know when you're putting your house on the market and you finish all those projects to make it look good to sell?  I want our house like that now while we have time to enjoy it!Phoebe is leaving for college thi…

Missing The Man

Not the proverbial "Man" that wants to keep us down, but my man.  I've been pretty quiet about it on social media, but Tom had to move to Boulder, Colorado for work and I stayed behind with the three kids.  He had to move because his company decided they wanted to move certain central roles in the organization to corporate headquarters there.  He's been super lucky for about 14 years he's been working from home for the same company.  I guess paybacks are a bitch.  We decided not to move the whole family as our daughter is a senior in high school at an amazing school that is giving her two years of college level (AP) Calculus, she's already had AP Chemistry last year and has two AP Physics classes this year. She is applying to schools for engineering and has a bright future ahead of her with law school when she's done with her undergraduate work.  One might ask why not find another job locally... did I mention we have a daughter going off to college and t…
