Last week, I wrote a whole bunch of posts in a row and scheduled them, but I wasn't totally happy with that because they were all just kind of meh and not really connected to our life. But this week, I have had zero time to post anything, and that's not idea, either. So, who the hell knows.
I do know that my work/life balance is off and skewing all to the LIFE side. Which is troubling because we need to do things like PAINT THE BASEMENT. Also, I need to work on my book and my HUGE spring class prep and finish fall hiring, etc. I am going to have to actually go to the office after the 4th. But! The thing I am actually working on right now-- teaching my summer class- is going great and I am using all of my work time for that, which is not necessarily a bad thing. I just need a few extra hours in my day. Every day.
On Sunday, Ben did some light yard work (he is obsessed with trimming the bushes in a non metaphorical way) and some BASEBALL because everything we do is baseball these days, and I took the little kids on an east side adventure.
Harry was a baby. I promised the kids we could go back for the last day of summer break, which Dorothy has confused with the last day of swim lessons, so I look forward to that tantrum soon.
NPR's Wow in the World, and the kids LOVE it. I highly recommend it next time you are in the car and sick of screaming at everyone to shut up.
