Update August 24, 2019

Hello all! Despite my claims that we would get a bunch of work done on M’s room last week, we did not. Aaron and I were sick. Now the painting will have to wait until the next time M is home on a weekend.

My reading was also a bust this week, but I started a new job in dialysis. That’s going as well as a first week goes. I’ve also been hanging on to those PCA jobs, as my clients are having difficulty replacing me. Hopefully they’ll both find someone soon! I can’t keep this up for long.

IL had his first week of daycare EVER. He seemed to handle it better than I.

That’s him at daycare. Taken by the teachers while I was gone and missing him. 🤣😂

Aaron, the kids, and baby have just landed in Oregon. I will miss them, as I couldn’t go on vacation this year. New jobs and vacation don’t mesh well. They will have fun, and I will get the house sparkling clean while they’re gone. Either that, or I’ll read a lot. 😁

Bryan from Still an Unfinished Person is having his own personal readathon this Sunday, and I was tempted to do the same. But maybe I’ll wait until Labor Day weekend, as I’ll have a better idea of how much I’ve accomplished in housework by then. Anyway, I’d like to be able to dedicate a whole day to it. Maybe I should make a goal of finishing Radium Girls and reading the entirety of Beloved, by Toni Morrison by Labor Day’s end? That’s a good goal.

PS: here’s my family on a trip without me:

And me, without them:
