  1. Good morning! We have a couple of inches of smow on the ground and more to come today. It is also really cold! Ds3 lost last night, so his tournament is done. Honestly, I was not looking forward to the drive today anyway. I am glad we got new tires yesterday! That's dh- always just in time. Today- not much. Some baking, some quilting, some football. That's about it. Have a great day!
  2. ds3 plays tennis. He is playing Open at an adult Clay court tournament this weekend. He really likes the adult tournaments- there are lots of good players and he gets to play new people all the time.
  3. Good morning! ds3 won last night (I got the play by play as we drove home)- so he plays again today. dh is headed out to get tires and I am going to work outside- if it ever warms up. The weather forecast has been very unreliable... now we are supposed to get 8 inches of snow on Sunday. I very much doubt it. coffee/paper- still drinking coffee change water in fish tank update some lists, calendar, etc start cutting squares for the last quilt project that is actually planned (obviously not the last one I will do!) probably some general cleaning- must dust- this has
  4. Good morning! ds3 got invited to the top practice group in the state yesterday (really good for him) but it is an hour away in good traffic (one way) and pretty expensive. He is going to arrange to pay as he goes- once a week when the weather is fine. He drove it yesterday and though dh and I were a little concerned (terrible traffic), he managed fine and plans to go every Thursday. So... all those mixed feelings. We may need to get another car-though we were really hoping to manage with only one for the next two years. He has the first game of an adult tournament today (long drive so we
  5. Good morning! It is chilly and not supposed to get much warmer today. ds3 got up early and did some work and I just checked on him and he is back in bed 😂 So the gray morning has claimed its first victim! I don't have big things on the list today- just the weight of small things. coffee/paper some more pinwheel blocks look over some patterns make some copies of things from a library book (personal use and all) do some general clean-up- bedroom, living room some electronic chores- get delivery dates for a few things on the calendar clean oven (stea
  6. Dentist done- good report- checkup in 3 months Cleaned the bathrooms ordered some fabric chatted with ds3 about school and life next up: read a little, a load of towels, make a few more pinwheel squares and iron a couple of blouses
  7. Good morning! dh left for the office, so I will get some cleaning chores done and do some things in the kitchen. But first, a dentist appointment. coffee/paper dentist maybe pick up bagels for ds3 (shop right by dentist) ds3- school, gym, club tennis clean bathrooms dust jen things figure out dinner not sure what else Have a great day!
  8. 2 loads of laundry done dough for cinnamon rolls in bread machine little sewing put in new printer cartridge (no idea why that is a chore-but I am so slow at getting it done) chatted with ds3 and took chicken out from freezer (step one- still don't know what I am doing with it)
  9. Went to the grocery store and dropped off ballot emptied dishwasher and took out the recycling ds3 moved his schedule around due to tournament this week (no spectators- so sad), so he is napping instead of going to the gym and has a private this afternoon before practice Having another cup of coffee- it's before noon! Next up: read a little probably general clean-up bake? dh did end up going to the office
  10. My kids are all over the map, in terms of learning disabilities, academic success, and athletic talent. We always talked about the things you can control. You can't control your genetics and you can't control the circumstances you were born into. You can control your attitude towards those things and you can control your responses. You can control how hard you work and what priorities you have. Hard work is always going to be part of success. But you get to define success. It is always easier to use an athletic example. Talent is never dispersed fairly. For example, in m
  11. Good morning! Not sure if dh is working from home today- he hasn't left yet- so I think he is. Regular day here. coffee/paper- still drinking coffee electronic chores- some shopping maybe laundry ds3 is already working- checked in with him. His day is the same- school, gym, club tennis errands? grocery store? read, putz around in sewing room work outside this afternoon crochet and watch World Series tonight Have a great day!
  12. Good morning! We should have a nice day today- maybe some yardwork later. ds3 is working hard- he has another tournament at the beginning of November, so he wants to be ready to take a few days off. dh is working from home today. coffee/paper- still drinking coffee laundry- started electronic chores- check order status of a couple of very late things school with ds3 quilt pillow top work outside ds3- school, gym, club tennis other jen things crochet and watch some football tonight dinner is a question mark Have a great day!
  13. Finishd the pillow top for ds1 and gf for St. Nicholas Day- just need to quilt it and put it together. Friend got the all clear, so headed home to help parents collect the horses, etc. Bread is rising. And I read while I had some more coffee and a donut. A few more sewing room chores and then crochet- watch the Broncos get crushed. Jeepers.
  14. We have wildfires in our county- but this morning has dawned misty and no wind- so hopefully everything will have died down today. One of ds3's friends stayed with us last night- his family was evacuated and they split up to make things easier for people. His house is fine- they should be able to go back tonight. Not much is on the calendar today- football, sewing, dmil coming for dinner, bake some bread Have a great day!
  15. Good morning! Scout, my dmil is breaking every rule in her place and is much, much happier. She has dinner with us every week and goes to ds3's matches when she can. Basically, she leaves whenever she wants. I guess they could kick her out- but everyone is starting to do it. We were really really concerned about her last spring- but she has regained a little spunk. Not that I am encouraging your mom to break all the rules- but if she can do even a little walk outside- you could pick her up and drive her around- start to make a safe bubble of your family for her. Huge fire up west of here
