the new season of Game of Thrones,
and lots of Cubs baseball. There have been a few brief moments when we've led the NL Central in the last couple of weeks. I'll totally take those.
What else? Things are getting a little out of hand in the "Back to School" chair. The girl and I also gave my classroom clipboards a much-needed facelift.
Also, I won a Carly online in a FB Lula Roe group. I've never bought one before, but of course I've seen countless teachers wearing them. I didn't get to pick it out, but if I had it probably would have been this purple flowered number.
After getting home from vacation two weeks ago, neither of us felt like cooking. That meant a lot of last minute pizza, mac and cheese, and Ramen noodles last week. This week I've been getting back into squirrel mode in preparation of all those crazy back to school nights that are coming up. A huge batch of spaghetti sauce was made and the extra was frozen into four meals this week along with a couple of lasagnas and meat loaves. One thing I discovered a few years ago is that it's really not that much more work to make extra when you're cooking and freeze it for later.
My husband really appreciates that lady he calls "Summer Wife" and what she has done for us on those tired, busy, hangry school nights. My husband does at least half of the cooking around here, but he loves Summer Wife because she cooks all these meals for us that just have to be thawed out and served with bread or something equally simple. I love her too. She'll be around for a little over two weeks more and then School Year Wife steps in and takes over. He loves her too, but she's not as much fun. She does have her moments though.
