Been A Week

It's been a week since I've posted anything...on the one hand it seems to have flown by...on the other hand, not.
  • Been sick all week - fighting sinus junk with fever...no voice
  • Kids on bus LOVE having a squeaky-voiced bus driver
  • Had 1 little one ask for the bucket...and another one fall down bus steps yesterday afternoon. Thankfully he wasn't seriously hurt - more embarrassed and bruised.
  • Another bus driver's husband has just been diagnosed with stomach and colon cancer
  • I lost 4 lbs last month - doing county-wide weight-loss competition - only increased my activity very slightly - have increased water intake but really not watched what I ate.
  • Found out this morning that we do not have "automatic" recycling pick-up here at new place - boys were most disgusted and rather disbelieving about that! Their reaction was very funny...though I'm disappointed to not have the recycling pick-up as that means there won't be much of it going on here at this point in time.
  • We may be looking at some MAJOR repairs in old house - involving heat in the ceiling - we've made no decision yet on how to handle them but I suspect they will need dealt with before we can sell it
  • Caught some students pulling duct tape repairs off one of the seats on my bus - I'd been suspicious of these girls before and had been checking that seat 4x daily - this time they made "mistake" of putting tape on top of the seat where I could see it in the mirror.
  • Am attempting to plan a possible trip north to see my Mom and Dad - will end up being a "rushed" weekend trip but hopefully I'll be able to pull it off
  • Winter storm advisory for this weekend - currently there is very little snow on the ground but it's been cold the last couple of days and there is predicted to be snow in the morning.
  • I like bullet style journaling especially when it's been awhile since I've posted anything and it's getting late at night
  • Squirrel is testing for his black belt in TaeKwonDo in a couple of weeks
  • Stretch is away for the night at a youth group retreat...he's gearing up to be pretty busy again as musical try-outs were this past week
  • Dipstick does much better with keeping his grades up IF I am very diligent about checking daily to see what he has due and has turned in
  • Even though my writing may not be particularly amusing...life has been decidedly funny this week overall - except for finding out about life-threatening illness in friend's husband
  • Eventually I will get pictures posted again

Hi. Glad to hear your week has been mostly positive (or did you say funny?). Bullet journaling is an excellent way of catching up. I may well have to do the same as I have been reluctant to post lately - due to lack of 'WOW' material. But I guess it is the small moments that make us who we are as well as the BIG stuff.

Have a great weekend.

Yep, I agree....sometimes life just happens in bullet points. I hope you are feeling better though. And that you avoid any more winter stroms. We all need spring to arrive.

I agree, bullet journaling is a great way to catch up. Glad you had a more positive week.
