#WeekendCoffeeShare: Things Are Slowing Down

If we were having coffee, I’d first tell you that I’m excited about starting this new blog. I have another blog on WordPress, but this one is a big change, plus it’s always fun starting something new. I’ve never been artistically inclined, but I’ve been enjoying creating the doodles and learning how to use the Adobe Draw app on my iPad. Learning something new tech-related is half the fun, at least at first.

Now, on to other things…

Over our drinks I’d tell you that this has been a relatively easy week. No one has been sick (hooray March), and aside from the kids going to school, the only thing we’ve had going on this week is soccer and a couple of appointments. That’s a relatively laid back week, especially when I’m not having to wash 10 loads of pukey clothes!


Next Saturday is Little Man’s soccer jamboree. My husband is coaching this year, and I’m helping out when I can. I stayed home with Baby Girl this morning since it’s cold out for a change. (We’ve had a very warm winter, but had a freeze last night, so it’s chilly. The temps will be back in the high 60s in a couple of days, though.) My husband is doing a great job with them, so hopefully they’ll have a good season.

Outside of soccer practice, I think that’s all that is on the agenda for this coming week. It’s a relief to look at the calendar and see days with no extra appointments, project due dates, etc. It feels like we’ve been running a marathon since September, outside of a couple weeks break before Christmas. Now if we can just keep everyone healthy as well, maybe we can catch our breath!


Between a largely uneventful week and a hopefully uneventful week to come, that’s all I’ve got for today. ‘Til next time!

How was your week?

Netflix And (Legit) Chill

A night without the kids is an amazing thing. You can do all sorts of things that you can’t when they’re with you — eat at nice restaurants, go shopping whine-free, eat snack cakes without little vultures appearing when they hear the crinkling of the cellophane.

On to plans for the night — there are many decisions to be made. Where do we go? What do we eat? Do we stay home and do the parenting version of Netflix and chill (you know — the one where all you do is watch Netflix and actually chill)? Hmm.

What do you like to do when you get a night to yourself?

Fun In The Sun

I’ve never been any good at drawing, to the point that I think my family wants to say, “Tell me about this, Mom,” to spare my feelings when I attempt to draw more than a stick figure. Despite this, I recently got an iPad Pro and discovered that I really enjoy doodling on it. It’s fun and relaxing and gives me something else to do beside zoning out to Netflix after the kids go to bed.

“This is adorably bad,” my husband told me when I showed him the doodle I’m sharing below. That’s better than just “bad,” right? And clearly, when he said “adorably bad,” he meant “start a blog and share it with the world.” Or something like that.

At any rate, I’m going with it. Maybe as I keep doodling, I’ll go from “adorably bad” to “not so bad.” We’ll see.
