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
Week 2 of the school year is upon us and it was another great week. It has left me with more energy to work with the students as well as energy to have my own fun. 🙂 I had 4 quick meetings scheduled this week and did all the paperwork at a wine bar. I took my cousin Cat to a cookie decorating class at … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Back to Being Social
