I was supposed to take a break this week. There were cool things happenin’ in San Diego, but gas is over $4/gallon here and I’m sick of being in traffic… and I was just overwhelmed and tired. So, unfortunately, I don’t know what breaks look like. My non-breaks look like big events and out-of-town day or overnight trips. On Sunday night, I picked up a … Continue reading Sunday Bests: My So-Called Break Weekend
This was an insane week, but I showed up for it. It was even that time of the month! It was me doing my best, being a good enough teacher (2 of 4 periods are lovely, the other 2 kill me), and taking time to be with friends yet still getting activity and rest. Me, at home Me, at work Me, with friends Yelp 80s … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Me at my best (at home, at work, with friends)
I might’ve spent 7 hours driving to Carlsbad and LA (twice). It was worth it for the most part, but I was exhausted by the end of the weekend. I’m currently writing this in bed with a face mask on while watching Matt Does Fitness. After a long day at work, I immediately drove to Carlsbad for the Dames Collective Launch Party. I changed in … Continue reading Sunday Bests: A Lot of Miles & Traffic
I would say “I tried to enjoy the last week of summer by going out and being outside,” but who am I kidding? It’s Southern California and we have weather that permits outdoor beer gardens and beach days. Elle was in town on Monday so we met up for dinner. I had a big salad and a margarita. On Wednesday, I went to trivia night … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Last Week of Summer/One Last Tan

A little here and there is compounding to a very difficult season of my life. However, it can’t be that hard because I’m pushing through it. I’m forcing myself to go out and do … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Can’t Keep Me Down!
I’m still high on last weekend’s camping trip. It was refreshing but not quite restful – we spent all day out hiking and roaming, came back late, and sat by the campfire for dinner, s’mores, games, and laughter! It was back to work and quite a busy week – advertising for Rainbow Youth and potluck for back to school night. The AC was broken at … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Rest Week (But Not Really)
Unbeknownst to many, I’ve had a house guest for over a month and it was, at times, miserable. I’m particular – I need quiet afternoons for naps and working out, and I’m a bit of a neat freak. When my guest left on Friday morning, I felt relief. I had taken the day off, slept in, and cleaned intensely. Then it was off to a … Continue reading Monday Bests: Labor Day Weekend in Sequoia
