This is going to be a short one today!  Linking up with Heather, Tanya, etc.  at My Glittery Heart and The Other Side of the Road.

Friday night I made a reservation at Ciao, the Italian restaurant next to the youth theatre.  

Their breadsticks are soooo good!  When our food came we were in a hurry to get to our play so no photos!  We saw a play called She Kills Monsters.  Our son wasn’t in it but wanted to support his friends.  

Saturday morning was a busy one.  I did get a pumpkin spice latte!  Who cares that is was 95 degrees and will be until this Friday!  This is not normal for us.  We are having a hot September/October.  Jack had theatre and all state choir try outs.  Mason had to go to a friend’s house.  I had to do grocery because it had gotten down to bare cupboards!  I have not done curbside pick up in months.  I need to get back to that!  The last time I did it was a royal disaster.  My order was really wrong.  

I started this – the first one is definitely way better but it’s still amusing. Is it wrong that I’m glad the world of elementary class mom, PTA, etc. are behind me?  I was classmom many times for one boy or the other (they never were in the same class) and I think I was inside the school at least once a week.  

This is really good!  

And, Sunday I had things to grade! img_9434.jpg

I read on my patio for a bit on Sunday even though it was hot; there was a nice breeze plus my fan!  

Hub and I went to Closets By Design and I went to Sherwin Williams again.  I am gravitating toward slate blue, grey, and greige.  We are basically re-painting the whole upstairs.  I want the dining room and kitchen to be the same because they are open to each other.  I want the mudroom to be a complementary shade to that.  I am not sure about the hallway, living room, guest bath, master bed and bath yet.  Lots of decisions to be made.  Sherwin Williams has paint 30% off right now and then it goes 40% off October 18.  Maybe waiting will pay off?  

Saturday night we got takeout and Sunday night we ate the leftovers.  

How was your weekend?  

We have a four day week this week and a three day week the following for a total of five days off for students.  This is all we get for a fall break.  I only have four days off because next Tuesday is Parent Teacher Conference Day, but I will take it.  

We are doing a college visit, working on college applications, getting haircuts, and trying out a new Mexican Restaurant with friends.  Also, this week we have a closet designer coming over and I am soooooo excited!  

Any more tips on paint or closet design or the college process are appreciated!  I need advice on everything really!  

Oh, also, I’m ready to start using hub’s name now, too.  Any guesses?  If you’re new here, I kept my sons’ names anonymous until recently.  It was fun hearing your guesses!  

Thanks for reading!

  1. Short one? Tihi!
    Wow, a lot of colors to be decided! Well, keep it simple, that’s my advice. There’s nothing wrong with having the same color in more than one room! And be careful with blue, it can easily become too dark and cold.
    Hub’s name! Fun! I go for Thomas… or Bill!?
    Weekend was fine thanks! Highlight was when I and husband took the moped (it’s a small blue moped… we look funny!) downtown for a coffee yesterday afternoon!
    Have a fantastic Monday!

    1. I think you’re right about using same color and keeping it simple. I think it will look more spacious to have the same color maybe?
      You are good – Thomas is right! Well, Tom! Do you give your students English names? I let mine pick a Spanish name. The moped adventure sounds fun!


      1. You’re kidding me – I was right!? Cool! I should buy a lottery ticket today!
        Yes, I mostly pronounce my students’ name with an English accent, but I don’t change them. Maybe I should try that, could be fun!

  2. We don’t get a break til Thanksgiving! I don’t mind though. A few years ago, they took away lots of holidays and instead gave us a week at Thanksgiving and release for summer before Memorial Day. I’ll take it! Hope you have a great week!

  3. We used Sherwyn Williams colonnade gray for our master bath and bedroom and I love it. We tested no fewer than 10 different grays and settled on this one. We had to make sure we found one that didn’t have too much pink in it.

    My daughter is going to graduate from college this year, and I remember applications and scholarships being like a second job for me. Luckily most of it can be copied and paste did from essay question to essay question since most scholarships ask for the same things anyway LOL! As far as picking a school, she had a general idea of the major she was interested in and certain careers in that major she really wanted to learn about and some she definitely was not interested in. Honestly, it was all about gut feeling. She ended up going to college out of state that wasn’t even on our radar until she asked to visit and as soon as we got there, we could tell immediately that she felt comfortable and excited. I’m sure your boys will do great!


    1. I will write that grey down – thank you! There are some greys that really look lilac in certain light.
      Thanks for the college info. We told them they had to go in state bc they get money if they stay in state but a couple of schools across state borders honor it, too. It’s very stressful! Their English teachers required their essay so that’s done – thank you to the teachers! Thanks for your help, J!
