Monday Musings

Another week is upon us. Here is what is going on around here.

1) My anxiety has been kicking my booty this week. We have some major expenses coming up next month and I am really worried.

2) The guys went out of town this past weekend. Being alone with my thoughts did not help with issue #1.

3) A coworker was diagnosed with uterine cancer last week. Another coworker had a mild heart attack about a month ago. I am hoping that this time bad things only come in twos.

4) Only 4 more weeks of school for little man. I cannot believe how fast this yer has gone nor how much progress he has made. It has truly been a great year for him.

Here are the pictures for the week.

 Construction season - Michigan's 5th season
 This week's interesting license plate
 My Hermione's Everyday Sock is coming along
 When the guys are gone I have crackers and brie for dinner
 Since I eat crackers and brie for dinner I also ride the exercise bike
 Little man loves getting the mail

Think Write Thursday: The Advice Edition

The topic this week is advice you would give to yourself at 5, 16 ,21 and your current age.

To my 5 year old self:
Try not to worry so much. Enjoy your childhood more. Play more. Try to make more friends. 

To my 16 year old self:

You are good enough. You are definitely not fat. You are deserving of good things. What others think about you does not matter.

To my 21 year old self:

Go to class. Realize that these guys you are wasting time with are not worth the tears. Do not be afraid. Do a study abroad like you want to.

To my 40 year old self:

Remember you are worthy. Remember you are blessed. Remember to enjoy each day to the best of your ability. Spend as much time as you can with your husband and son.

Monday Musings

Here we are halfway through the month of May already. Here is what is going on around here.

1) Little man scored his first goal at soccer on Saturday. He was so excited!

2) Mothers Day yesterday was such a great day. I really enjoyed my day of relaxation.

3) It is time to get off my butt and exercise and eat better. The scale is slowly creeping up to a number I never want to see.

4) My knitting mojo continues to come back. I am feeling the want to cast on all the things.

Here are some pictures from the week.

I remember when I was this flexible

Little man was not happy about having to dress up like a school boy from the 1800s for his field trip

Lunch with a Loved One at school

Little man and daddy enjoying an ice cream at the school open house

BOGOs from Cold Stone are not helping with the goal of healthy eating

I loved how the clouds looked at the soccer game on Saturday
