Life lately has been busy. It’s mostly all good, but this is a busy season of life.
I have not been good about a regular grocery day, nor have I done grocery pick up since this summer when my order went terribly wrong. I have been visiting the grocery more than I would like due to poor planning on my part!
So, this week I ordered from Instacart in the morning before school and my groceries were delivered that day after school! I had a meeting after school and set my time up for between 4:00 and 5:00 and think it came at 4:15. I think it was only 50 cents more than pick up, you guys! Life changing! I did tip, but still! I think I could’ve gotten the groceries as soon as 3 hours after placing the order. I will definitely use this service again.
Unfortunately, I still had to put the groceries away and then cook the food.
My sister made “feetloaf” this week and I thought it was so cute. I thought I would show you in case you have small kids that would like this!
The night before the Instacart delivery, I got take out for the family from McAllister’s because I had no dinner foods. I sat outside and read my book while I waited. I always look for little pockets of time for things that bring me joy like reading. This book is really cute!
My field trip was Monday. It was really fun! But, it is so much work to plan and execute a field trip. I think the kids really enjoyed and appreciated it so that made it worthwhile. We saw a performance called “Latin American Fiesta” which had singing, dancing, costumes, and history of the Spanish speaking world.
I forgot to mention that over the weekend I finished this book. I really liked the story. The intimate scenes are pretty detailed, but I highly recommend this book if you need an easy chick lit read.
Here is a picture from the Ironman a couple of weeks ago. This is my college roommate and her husband was the one who participated in it.
My husband watched him cross the finish line around 8:00 p.m. but I was home getting ready for the week ahead because it was on Sunday.
Mason has a college visit today and gets to attend a class and meet a professor again! I am really excited for him.
Jack is getting ready to do a play called “45 Plays for 45 Presidents” in November with school and “Pride and Prejudice” in January with his community theatre. He is going to be busy from now until January and then hopefully he will make the school musical.
Both boys are doing great in school. One son has 5 AP classes and the other has 4.
Mason is back on the quick recall team which is our academic team. I watched his matches yesterday and last week. Both boys did this in 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. I guess Mason has come full circle and finishing out high school with this again.
Jack is going to guitar club after school some weeks. How fun is that?
Mason retired from debate team after last year. He learned a lot but it had run its course.
What has life been like lately for you?
