Memories of the Month - Here's a great idea for wrapping up the month with a set of questions to remember how your last month with.  I love going back and reading through what happened throughout the years.

LIFE

Happenings
Honestly right now all I can think about is this dang COVID that I have and I could probably make every answer to these COVID related. I don’t want that though. This month hasn’t been only about COVID, so I’ll write a post about that later.

Loving Rob for taking care of me through all this.

Happy that September is almost here and hopefully we might get some hints of cooler weather…probably not, but I’m always hopeful for it.

Reminiscing
Thinking back to September 2012 Carnival Dream Cruise when we went on a family cruise and took the kids out of school for a week. That was glorious!

Social
It was good to see Rob’s Dad and Step Mom earlier this month when they came for Caitlyn’s graduation.

Work Memories The scare that I have exposed folks to COVID. Jury is still out on this.

Lesson Learned If you feel sick, stay home!

Current Project
I don’t have any projects going on right now. I do need to do some cleaning and organizing around the house. Our playroom has become a storage area, which needs to be dealt with.

I am going to be doing the soccer league pictures in September, so that will be a major project coming up.

Drew comes over when he can and visits even though he doesn’t live as close before he moved earlier this month.

Alex started his senior year. He’s has 1st period off, so he gets to go to school at like 10am. He’s taking Physics, Dual Enrollment Calculus, and Senior English.

Rob started a pilot program at work to split work time between home and office from August 1st till end of the year. He alternates M/W/F and T/Th depending on the week.

Most remembered
Not sure I can pin down one thing…

More resting and preparing to go back to work Monday after being out for nearly 2 weeks.

Looking Forward to Next Month

ENTERTAINMENT

Movies
Life as We Know It (Netflix) – Kind of annoying, but enjoyed watching Josh Duhamel

TV Shows
I’ve been struggling to find something new to watch. I want to watch shows like Downton Abbey and the Crown, but I just can’t get into them.
I watched:
Good Girls (NBC) – trying to finish Season 4.
The Staircase (Netflix)
Jailbirds (Netflix) –
I watched a bunch of other stuff, but most didn’t even make it through the 1st episode. Like I said, I’m struggling to find good stuff to watch.

Rob and I watched:
Home Before Dark (Apple TV+) – Season 1 – A must watch! First few episodes are bit slow, but really develops into a great show.
Ted Lasso (Apple TV+) – Season 2
For All Mankind (Apple TV+) – Season 2 –
America’s Got Talent (NBC) –
