Hi, if anyone is there today.

Normal day around here today, just dragging a bit.  Took kids a couple of hours away to the state fair to see the Oak Ridge Boys and Lee Greenwood concert.  They were asking to go last week so we decided to fight the fair traffic and go.  So glad we did.  It was really good.  My kids know all their songs.  It was funny because when we were making the long trek back to the van after, a lady said how much she enjoyed watching them sing along with everything (and dance)lol.   Spent Saturday getting new products for business, like all day, so I actually feel relieved the weekend is over and back to routine. 

Nothing much else here.  School. Laundry. Business. Cook. Workout. Repeat.  Maybe throw a little fun in there somewhere. lol  Just the way I like my days.

Wow Catherine!  You are really keeping busy!  I'm still doing the weightlifting 5 days or more per week and now. fortunately, with ALOT higher energy levels after figuring all that stuff out, but still no kayaking or hiking up endless mountains!  Good for you!



Glad you have more energy these days!

Cheryl, I don't have anything worth selling of my own either.  My inventory is all purposefully acquired for resale.  And yeah it is Ebay, but it is a bit more than just putting a few things on for sale.  Just getting started and the store is bumping 400 items.  Hoping to keep growing steadily.  Although, I don't know that people really shop through the "store" facet, more just items listed on Ebay itself.  I am beginning to think the store is just for keeping items categorized and for lowering my ebay fees every month.

Hi there, Cheryl and Lindsay!

Just playing around online while eating my lunch and thought I'd say "hi". Today was my weight lifting day (typically MWF) but I felt like moving so also ran intervals after getting kids to school. Had to take advantage of this "cold front", haha. We went from 109 on Monday to a high of only 95 today. Humidity is still rough, but it's slightly cooler. Will be right back up in the 100's again shortly.

I went ahead and did Aldi and Sam's runs while out. I need to make three pans of cheesy potatoes for Earl's work picnic on Friday so needed the ingredients. Thought I'd get it all over with today. Was hoping to get my car vacuumed out and do a bit uber this afternoon but I'm kind of beat now so we'll see. Planning to kayak with some friends in the morning, so that sounds fun. Sure missing hiking, but I have 11-12 backpacking trips planned over the next year, including one over Labor Day weekend. Cannot wait for my long trip in Oct/Nov!

Well, think I will catch a short nap and finish putting the groceries away.  Then see from there. Have a great afternoon!

Hey, Lindsay!

I kinda, sorta, maybe miss homeschooling just a little bit, but not going to lie - having time to myself to just think is wonderful.  I hope maybe the change will do us both good. 

Sounds like you have had a very busy summer.  Good to hear your online busy is going great.  eBay, isnít it? I used to sell things on eBay several years ago but got out of it for some reason or another.  I donít really have anything of value to try selling. 

Itís miserably hot here.  I am so ready for fall.  I canít take this heat.  Every time I go outside the humidity just saps me.  Plants are dying, gardenís drying up, pecans are already falling from the trees, and everything is brown and crunchy. Itís terrible.

Good morning Cheryl.  I am still here, just super busy.

We started back homeschooling last week, so that is always an adjustment to getting back into the school days routine.  Glad Emily is adjusting well and hope things are still going smoothly for her, Cheryl.   I am still working diligently on building up the home online business.  That is taking a lot of time, but it is growing by leaps and bounds and I am happy with how it is going so far.  My oldest daughter loves helping me with it.  I am thinking because she loves clothes so much anyway, I mean she does change her own like 6 or 7 times a day according to her mood. lol 

Other than school and business stuff, just still working out and trying to keep up with day to day stuff.  May try to do something fun for a change this weekend.  These hot dog days of summer make me feel like I am in a rut and need a change of scenery.  Anyone else get that way?

Hope people stop by more to chat, Cheryl, maybe when it starts cooling off.  Otherwise, it is just talking to ourselves on here.  If I want to have a conversation with myself I can just talk to my teenage boys. LOL

Managing a Household / Friday, August 9

Hi!

Iím sitting here in my quiet house having some coffee.  Emilyís first day of public school went well.  She seems to love it so far, but wait til the middle of the year and ask her then how itís going.😂

I managed to knock a few things off the to-do list yesterday, but there a lot of things I want to get done.  At least now I wonít feel pressured to get housework, school stuff, and animal chores all finished on time.

My cats were absolutely crazy yesterday, running from one end of the house to the other, hissing, spitting, and slapping each other.  I thought they never would settle down.  Normally they sleep pretty much all day but not yesterday.  Theyíre all asleep at the moment but it probably wonít last.

Guess I need to get busy doing something.  I need to go to the store but Iím not looking forward to that.  We usually have homemade pizza on Friday nights but I donít have mozzarella cheese.  I will look in the freezer and see if I can find any surprises.

Have a great day!

Hello!

Just had lunch and am doing a few things online before I need to have a nap get to work. It's so stinking hot--got up and started my walk/run at 7 AM. Did a quick 3.6 miles, then came home and showered, and then had to go to Toyota for my 20,000 mile service. I'm actually at almost 21,000 now after this last trip. It's been a traveling kind of year! After Toyota, I went by Target for a few things--have been in there at least 4 times the past few days, getting stuff for Maddy's dorm room, jeans for kids, etc... .  My kids start school tomorrow.

Planning a trip back to the Pecos Wilderness in New Mexico for right before Labor Day. Earl may actually go on this one!I had SO much fun on the recent Gila Wilderness trip.  Also working on planning for some other upcoming trips: a "girls" 4 day backpacking trip in early October and my 223 mile backpacking trip starting October 28.  Then section hiking a 165 mile trail over 4-5 weekends throughout fall/winter, and a trip to Big Bend (yes, again) in January to backpack.

Dinner tonight is baked cod and salad with strawberries and mandarin oranges.

Have a great day!
Catherine
