Hello Lovelies! Welcome to my weekly wrap up!
I was so busy last weekend, I didn’t even get chance to put a wrap up together. Last weekend was my baby daughter’s 9th birthday. We had a pretty elaborate party for her and had a few close friends with kids over. One of the my daughter’s best friends from school came to the party and the parent lingered at the house for an awkward hour. We live in an affluent community, but we are not really affluent. Finding things to talk about that we might have in common was nerve racking. I was actually glad when they left. You know what I mean? Other than that little blip the party was a huge success. I think that my Blue Princess got everything she wanted and a few things she didn’t even know she wanted. New toys have kept them almost completely off their iPads this week. (yay!)
My kids started swimming lessons this week. It kinda sucks because their class is like 12 kids and 1 instructor. That ratio doesn’t really work for learning, but the kids are having fun and getting over the fear of being in the water without a float. I will probably have to re-enroll them for this same level class again as a refresher and to really master the skills being taught. Tbh, we haven’t even tried to enjoy the pool and man made pond in my city until now, so this has been fun for us all. They are better then I imagined they would be, (probably because of that affluence i mentioned).
I am actually working this weekend so that sucks. I will be busy this coming week in preparation for our vacation to New Orleans. I leave on Friday. I don’t have much plans for the blog while I am gone, but I might try a scavenger hunt with a few small giveaways. I think that might be fun. Now I just need to find the time to put them together on my 1 day off before leaving….no pressure. My kids are also going to summer camp for starting Monday after I am gone, This way the Mema can get a little break from them while we are away. She is pretty excited about that.
I did okay with reading these past few weeks and I got a few new books I am really excited about. Actually some of the books I have been reading are not that good. I want to finish them quickly so I can get back to things I enjoy. That is so sad to say. I hate getting review copies and then they are just “meh”. Here’s hoping my next few reads will be awesome. It is my turn to read something fantastic! (dammit)
Fitness this week:
Umm, not really. I did win the weekend warrior last weekend and Tuesday’s showdown challenge with one of my fiercest competitors. So there’s that.
