So strange to type that. Where or where did my summer go? I feel like I missed it somehow.
Getting a bit of a later start today as G and I were talking quite a bit this morning. He’s having some pretty serious anxiety and second thoughts on going off to college.
He leaves (maybe) on Friday or Saturday to move in to his dorm. Kind of wish it would have all come up before I spent yesterday washing all the towels, sheets, etc we bought for him to take down there.
Of course, he also didn’t get any sleep and is now (thankfully) asleep in his room. I’m kind of at a loss about it all at this point. Not even sure what to say or do.
J’s going to be a high school freshman and if he’s having any worries about it, I’ve not heard about them. Of course, he’s not enthused about school in general (though super smart/yes I’m biased as his mom but it’s true). He will get to start all his days with his favorite class now (band).
Decided between attempting to clean the house a bit and do more laundry, to just focus on the normal things. So that would mean putting up a Happy Homemaker Monday post to link up over at Diary of A Stay At Home Mom.
The news says a heat advisory starting at 1 PM today but really it’s not felt terrible out there. It was hotter last night at 10 than it is right now. Of course, I’ll probably be saying something different after I wait the proverbial 5 minutes. It’s supposed to be hot the rest of the week and maybe rain later. Typical stuff.
On My Breakfast Plate
Since both boys and I were all awake, I went ahead and made sausage and biscuits. Sorry, no gravy as none of us like that except my husband.
Right Now I Am
Working on this post and thinking way too much about things probably.
On My Bedside Table
a random library book, the same box of Ziploc space saver bags, some clothes
On My Reading Pile
I did a bit of binge-reading last week. Is that a thing? I read: Educated by Tara Westover, The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin, Trophy Life by Lea Geller, Päntsdrunk (Kalsarikänni): The Finnish Path to Relaxation by Miska Rantanen, The Overdue Life of Amy Byler by Kelly Harms, and Lying Next To Me by Gregg Olsen.
I reviewed a few (not all) of them on my Goodreads profile if you’re interested in what I thought.

D.C. Legends of Tomorrow was my Netflix laundry show and about the only thing I really watched.

Quote For The Week
If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present…Gratefully. (Maya Angelou)
What are your plans for the week ahead?
