I guess Sunday evenings are it

I keep saying to myself how I'd like to blog more often & I wish I had more time blah blah blah... but then the time I do have I end up spending doing other stuff... like folding laundry. Or reading other blogs. Or working. I end up doing everything but writing.

I guess it's one of those things that I shouldn't be trying to force. If it happens, it happens and for the first time in a really long time, I'm genuinely okay with that concept. Up until now, I've not written and it hasn't been okay with me but I didn't know how to either correct the situation or make peace with it. Now I've figured out how to do both.

This past week was packed with activity. I really don't like weeks like that because I end up feeling so rushed but that's how this one was. Beth had her procedure on Tuesday and she did really well. They gave her a sedative and within 30 minutes she was asleep. It didn't fully wear off for about 5 hours so when we got to the house, she ended up taking a nap.

We had to replace the air conditioner. It was an expense that I didn't want to have to take on but when it's 115 degrees outside, going without one is NOT an option.

Bright side: When I woke up on Wednesday morning, I had to put on long sleeves instead of my tshirt/nightgown because I was cold. I now realize how poorly the old unit was working and we were blaming it on how hot it had been. One of those "Oh it was 109 degrees today so of course it's going to be warm in the house..." What was really happening is that the air conditioner was old and giving out. It has been comfortable in my house every day this week.

Work is going pretty good. We were full Thursday and Friday night. Almost that way last night after a slow start and tonight it's just really slow. I'm not feeling the best in the world thanks to mother nature so I'm not complaining about it. Just taking it as it comes.

School starts back in another couple of weeks. Beth is looking forward to it. She took her hunter safety education course yesterday and today and passed her test with a 96. I know she's excited about doing so well. So now they've all had the course and we don't have to go through it again ever.

I think I am going to take this slow down as an opportunity to go eat my spaghetti. Chris made it a couple of days ago and it is so good.

It's been awhile since I have done one of these although my offline gratitude practice remains on point. In no particular order, here ar...
