I thought we should chat today – let’s pretend we are at a coffee shop holding our lattes and just chatting, mkay? The only difference is that I will be the only one chatting! Just kidding – I would love to hear what you would chat about in the comments!
Do you have a favorite mask? I don’t even want to know how much I have now spent on masks. I am like Goldilocks with my masks! The ear straps have to be comfortable, the material has to be breathable, but not too breathable so that it doesn’t work, the mask can’t go in my mouth while I’m wearing it, the mask can’t come up too high blocking my vision… ugh! Also, I want to make sure my boys have enough masks to go two weeks without washing them – so like 14. Because, boys! I ordered some more plain black ones from Amazon. My mom is also sending them one at their new college addresses. What about you? Please tell me others are just as picky!
As you are reading this we are on day six as empty nesters. Has our routine changed? Not one bit! Ha! We are doing o.k. with it but I have a feeling we will really start missing them soon.
I really like having the house a bit cleaner. Is that wrong?
I can feel a touch of fall in the air! Of course the year we don’t have to physically go to school in my district it is super pleasant in late August! Normally I am the grossest thing after a day at school. It’s hot and sticky in the morning and after school and oftentimes our old AC doesn’t work quite well enough yet.
I never thought I would have the chance to work from home with my job as a teacher. I mentioned this in the spring, but I will mention it again. I am going to enjoy this ability while I have it because there are lots of nice things about working from home.
I want to go to the movie theater so badly! I think there are some old movies playing at our favorite theater but Tom and I want to see a new release and they seem to be waiting on those! We love the movies and really miss going. I think the last time we went was in January? Should I put all that saved money towards a new expensive pair of shoes? If we went to just one movie a month pre-pandemic (including snacks of course) that would’ve been $150!
I could shop the Nordstrom sale yesterday at 9:30 a.m. as a non-card holder. I looked at the site and was just meh. Is it just me or does everything look the same as it did in 2019? So, I saved more money! Girl math!
I’m already thinking of all the dinners I want to make my boys when they come home. I know, I know. But, I’ve been cooking for them for 18 years!
I would like the newest iphone for the better camera. Anyone have the most recent iphone? I keep my phones until they die. I think mine usually last four years.
I love to type. I am a big nerd for saying that. I was so obsessed when I first learned to type in 9th grade that everything I read I would “pretend type”. O.k., that is really weird and I probably wouldn’t say that if we were having coffee.
Did you know that we aren’t supposed to space two times after a period anymore? Um, I can’t help it and I’m going to continue. See? See? Can you tell the difference?
I’ve pretty much stopped watching the news. I just know I can’t handle it now. I really want to break up with Facebook and Instagram but I can’t seem to. There is a lot of good on Facebook and Instagram. I am part of a college parent Facebook group for the boys’ college that is really helping me and some of my students are messaging me on Instagram that they are excited to see me – virtually!
I hope you enjoyed having coffee with me! I appreciate you joining me!
