Share 4 Somethings, March edition

  Happy Saturday, friends, and welcome to March's edition of Share 4 Somethings. This month we're talking about what we loved, read, learned and ate in March. I can't wait to read your posts! As a reminder, don't forget to visit the other entries and leave some comment love on their blogs. I'll jump right in!  I loved having a week off from work for spring break this month! I am still enjoying the benefits of my job, like getting paid for time working, even on the days when I don't work. I don't know that I'll ever get over that.  I loved going out of town with Todd, even if we did almost kill each other on the way back home. I'm rolling my eyes at us. Sometimes we fight, yup.  I loved the time changing, and the fact that it's staying light for longer now.  I read a few great books! Not as many as I'd have liked, but I did finish one over the course of our time away during spring break.  I enjoyed sitting out here while I read a couple of day

Friday Favorites, 3.24.23.

  Happy Friday, friends! I'm linking up with Andrea and Erika for my favorite blog post of the week. It has been a week for me! Reentry into school and a full-time job after a week after spring break is no joke. It's been really good, don't get me wrong, but it's been kind of crazy, which I'm seeing is the new normal. I'm okay with this! This job is my favorite job to date, with the exception of being a wife and stay at home mom to our sons. That was my all-time favorite job of all time, and I am so thankful for the years I had to do that. This new phase feels amazing, though, and I love how I spend my days! I'll tell you what's NOT my favorite this week—getting this notification on my phone last night. Yikes! A/C problems are no fun. I hated for Todd to come home to this last night, but it can't be helped. I'm thankful that it cooled off decently enough last night, thanks to a cool shower, our ceiling fans and the fact that I stripped the bed

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday, friends! Rebecca Jo and I are back for this week's weekly gratitude post. I am so glad you're here with us today! As grateful as I was to have a week off for spring break last week, I was also thankful to be able to return to work on Monday. I really do love my job and co-workers! I still don't know how long I'll be there, which is so strange to me, but I'm taking each day for what it is and enjoying my time there. I'll figure out all the rest later. (My position is temporary and dependent upon when or if a teacher decides to come back from medical leave.) I am thankful that tonight, my family will all be back in one city. We've been all over the place this week! Todd and Graham are flying home from New Mexico tonight, and I'll be glad to see them. I am thankful that it was an easy week with minimal cooking/meals. It's easy to cook for three people!  I am thankful for the help of our sons. Jonah helps out around the house by doing si

weekending & Hello Monday

  Happy Monday, friends! I'm linking up with  Holly  and  Sarah  for today's blog post. I hope you've had a great week (last week) and weekend! I didn't intentionally decide to not write blog posts last week, but sometimes life just happens that way, and it's what happened for me. As you all know, I was on spring break last week, but my week started off with a huge test for work and a birthday dinner out with our sons. I still haven't heard about my test results from last week, and the dinner ended up being a complete bust, and was such a letdown. Do you have times when everything just feels incredibly disappointing? That was where I was at with that last week, but we are planning a redo on the dinner out closer to Drew's birthday. None of the disappointment could be helped, but sometimes I feel like I have very high expectations. I feel like this is always a lesson the Lord is teaching me about, about being flexible and and more go with the flow since our s
