MEMORABLE MOMENTS • Benny had his first tee ball practice this week. The kids were practicing throwing and catching the ball, and the coach was totally blown away with Ben’s throwing arm! (Little does he know Ben’s been a total natural at playing catch since he was like 3…) Mike went to a job fair and has a few interviews lined up in the coming weeks. (Cross your fingers for us!) Myles is taking being ONE very seriously. He’s in full-on toddler mode now and he’s running and learning and just … wow.
WATCHING • Mike and I just got done binge-watching Game of Thrones so that we’re caught up to the current season. Talk about an intense show! I’m not sure what will be up next for our binge-watching. Suggestions?
READING • I’m listening to the audio book of The Silver Linings Playbook and I have Orange is the New Black on my playlist next. Reading is too difficult with Myles trying to rip books out of my hands these days!
PLAYING • The big boys (Ben and Mike) are currently hooked on Minecraft. We’ve been trying to cut back on video game time (it got to be a bad habit when Ben broke his leg and was really limited on what he could do), but this is their favorite game of the moment when they do play. We also had a great family game of Crazy Eights going the other night and Benny won 3 out of 5 games. Myles got lots of fun new toys for his birthday. He hasn’t shown a preference for anything specific yet. His favorite toy of the moment has been two plastic spoons, actually. (Kids…)
WORKING ON • I’m juggling more projects than I care to quantify right now. Thank goodness for notebooks to write it all down, so I only have to concentrate on a few tasks at a time! I’m doing my best to get a game plan in order, but there’s SO much to do.
WEEKEND PLANS • I actually feel way cooler than I am because for once, I have fun plans this weekend! My friend Melanie invited me to go see her work that’s featured in the Spring Show at the Erie Art Museum. I’m hoping since she has an MFA she can school me a little bit so I can appreciate all the art a bit more than “oh that’s pretty”/”I don’t get it”. (She has her work cut out for her.)
Happy Friday, friends!
