If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about how the hubs and I challenged ourselves and completely cleaned out our bedroom this past weekend. After 9 hours, we took 8 LARGE black yard bags to the thrift store and 2 LARGE black yard bags to the trash. It was amazing to see the amount of stuff that we had put into nooks and crannies in our room. The feeling of accomplishment is so freeing!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that swimming is going OK. It takes me about 40 seconds to swim 25 meters which is crazy slow, but I have great endurance. At least that’s what I tell myself! The loop around the Rose Bowl is about 3 miles, so my plan this week is to start walking/jogging around it a few times a week. I may browse CraigsList for a scooter for The Bear as she is not 100% on her two-wheeler yet and the double stroller is occupied.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve become kind of a CraigsList junkie. I’ve been keeping my eyes open for a new rental… we like where we are living, but would LOVE to be in a detached home but in the same area. I know, not too picky, right?
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that people do funny things when they think they are not being observed. On Sunday, after Mass, we were at the market. We had just arrived and were unloading the kiddos. Lady in a Lexus parked 3 spots down from us and scooted into the market. Not long after, lady in a Mercedes pulled into the spot next to Lexus and in the process hit the Lexus. It was pretty surprising to see, but what was more surprising was the the lady in the Merc decided that she was going to reverse out and find a new spot. That is, until Hubs stopped her and pointed out that she hit the Lexus. In the meantime, I headed into the market and found Lexus lady and sent her out to her car. (Lexus lady was not happy.) This whole idea of the parking lot hit-and-run is a sore spot for me because, I swear, everyday there is a new dent or ding on my van from parking lot issues!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you to go meet my friend Kate over at Retro Modern Mom. She’s an amazing friend, Woman of God, wife and mother. You’d like her.
Thanks for having coffee with me!
