Greetings and salutations dear readers! I realize I was supposed to be posting this yesterday and thinking about how my weeks I may adjust my posting schedule a bit. That being said, here is last weeks recap on how things really went.
Tuesday we did our final walk through and signed off on our new home! It went as smoothly as one could hope for. We are taking our time moving in because there are a few things we want to do before furniture is moved in to make that a bit easier (ie switching carpets to laminate, updating a venting situation for our stove).
The niece and nephew are still with us. I do love them, but man oh man. My niece actually asked if I cared for her. Broke my heart to hear her ask that as if she didn’t know what it meant to have someone truly care for you. On the flip side, we found out my nephew has a nasty habit enabled by his parents of smoking cigarillos. Not sure how he got a carton of them, but he made a mistake of trying to smoke them in the house when he thought everyone had gone to bed. Needless to say the rest of the carton and pack he was working on along with the lighter have departed our house.
In other news, I have a little over a week before reporting back to school for our inservice week to prepare for the new school year. Our district has said that masks and vaccines are optional in an effort to return as close to normal as possible. That announcement came shortly before the American Academy of Pediatrics made their announcement saying that all children ages 2 and older should be wearing masks regardless of if they’re vaccinated as well as teachers. The response from our superintendent when I asked about this was that they would be consulting our local health officials soon on the matter. My principal sent out our welcome back letter Friday saying that our back to school night, the night before our first day back, is required to be virtual. I don’t want to jump to conclusions, but that is not a great sign for my district.
Lastly, before I stop today, thanks to a request from my niece and a personal project I’ve wanted to do, I found a super quick pattern for slippers with a range of sizes from toddlers to adults. This is definitely a keeper and will undoubtedly be adding it to my Etsy shop for orders or through email soon!
That’s it for now dear readers. May the road rise to meet you and the winds be always at your back. Until next time, namasté.
