What's been going on this week?

Happy Friday night! This has been a weird week. I haven't felt like writing. I have been dealing with some depression, lack of routine, I don't know. Let's see what else I have been up to...

To keep somewhat of a routine to this time of year I took the kids school supply shopping. I was able to get everything on their lists except for a specific watercolor set that the boys needed. It was a little bit of normalcy, although we still don't know yet what the school year will start out as. I told the kids that I know that they will need the supplies at some point. 

I have been trying to also get outside, even though I haven't really wanted to. I met up with a friend on Thursday afternoon at the park. She had texted to see if Rebecca wanted to meet up as her daughter is the same age and they are good friends. I met up with her and we walked around the park. It was a nice time. 

Later on Friday we went back to Ariel to walk as a family. We ended up doing the tower, which Ben threw an absolute fit about. I think he was showboating for Bill. After the tower it was a nice walk.


Today, we ended up going for a walk at Wolf Run to the Storybook Trail. Ben ended up reading most of the story.


What else have I been up to? I tried 2 new recipes this week. One for Mongolian Beef Ramen-- which we didn't care for. I made another recipe for Ritz Cracker Chicken that we all really loved. The cheese sauce needed something, but the recipe is a keeper. 

Not sure what this weekend holds. I have a laundry list of things to do around the house. Things are a changing around here and I think I am just overwhelmed with everything going on. Hope if you are reading this you are having a good week. Now it is on to the weekend. 


  1. Being outdoors in the green of nature might be what you need. You do lots of walks, so don't stop. Hopefully, things will become more bearable for you.

  2. It's such a hard time. I go through phases for sure where I struggle with balance & my own mental wellbeing. Big hugs to you.

  3. I cannot imagine going through all of this with young children. I know everyone is getting on everyone's last nerve by now. Sending good thoughts your way for better days.

  4. It's hard for sure to have a routine, and keep a home, and meet family needs in the best of times and this is not that. I hope when you blog it is a release and not feel like an obligation. Take care of yourself first-remember airplane oxygen mask rules apply.

  5. I need to push myself to get out as much as you do. Always enjoy your fantastic photos of the trails and parks. It's so hard to keep any type of routine when so much is unknown/changing day to day. Wears on everyone. Remember it's okay to take a minute (or 2 or 30 or 60 or...) and take care of you! For me sometimes that looks like being outside and honestly, sometimes it looks like spending almost all day watching reality TV shows on Netflix or reading silly romance novels in the afternoons if I have time. Hope you are in better spirits this morning and have a wonderful new week!
