Something that made me smile this week: I went shopping this week to find a new dress for the cruises. The shopping doesn’t exactly make me smile – I generally hate shopping for clothes for myself. Finding the dress does make me smile, though.
Something I’m thinking: Well, I thought that Maddie might be teething last week, but she still does not have any new teeth. I’ve been wondering the last few days if maybe her extra sleep issues are due to her transition to the new classroom.
Something I am hoping: This is the last time before this year’s walk that you’ll see me hoping for this particular thing. Just like the past few weeks, I hope that our team can raise a bunch of money for the National MS Society. We have only a few days before the walk! Please visit us here:
Something happening around the house: Yesterday, we tried something different with Games Night. We started at 3pm, ordered pizza at dinnertime, and played games all day. We think it worked out quite well. It was a playdate for the littlest kids, video game time for the older kids, and board game time for the adults (well, those who weren’t attending to little kids). Good stuff.
Something I’m reading: I finished The Westing Game, and I checked it off this list. I started and finished my first library book, Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella. I started Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. None of these are for book club!
Something tasty I ate this week: At the beginning of this week, we had baked sweet potatoes from our The Produce Box. Surprisingly, I enjoyed my baked sweet potato. This is a shocker since I have claimed to hate sweet potatoes my entire life. Turns out they aren’t so bad afterall.
Something Maddie did this week: Maddie had an Easter egg hunt on Monday in her new classroom. She gathered one egg only because Keira’s mom put one in front of her. She wasn’t quick enough and was a little intimidated by all of the bigger kids. She’s just not quite used to her new classroom yet. She then gave away her only egg to one of the other kids in the class.
Something I struggled with this week: The transition to the new classroom has been tough on me. She gets very upset every time I leave her. She’s had a few fussy days. It’s an adjustment for everyone, but I’m sure it’s harder on me than it is on her.
Something I learned this week: Audrey added this category last week, and I think it’s a good one! This week, I learned how to use the library (very exciting) and how to cook turnips! We made mashed turnips, and they were actually pretty good.
Something I’m looking forward to next week: I’m not looking forward to either the eye doctor or dental appointments that I have this week, but I am looking forward to our MS Walk and photo session with Catherine Keene Photography.
Something I captured: We’re only 33% towards our goals for our MS Walk fundraising. Visit our site, every little bit helps:
