Sunday Post 12

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Once again, I’m not getting my Sunday Post up until Monday. We were crazy busy this weekend, and I just didn’t have the energy to write the post last night before I went to bed (it really does take me multiple hours with all the giveaways and pre-order stuff). So, what were we up to? We painted another bedroom. That’s what I did most of this weekend—the final bedroom has now been painted after all of our shuffling, and it’s now set up as an office for my husband and a sleeping space for my mom on the weekends… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): School has started! Elearning is going decently well–not ideal, of course, but it’s working. Danielle has also started swim, and she had her first swim “meet” on Friday. They compete against their own team and then just compare scores with the other team. It makes the competition aspect a lot less fierce, but at least they still get to do it. We were able to watch via webcast, which kind of worked. Kind of. I’m just glad she’s still able to compete and stay active. We put together a bed and moved stuff. Plus, buying and selling. The room… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): School has started! The kids started e-learning this week. The process is actually going fine, though they did have to restructure things because they had some Zoom bombing going on one day (I think that some kids actually might have shared info purposely or something—they’re still investigating). The big issue is that my son has proven that I need to babysit him to make sure he’s actually doing what he’s supposed to be doing instead of watching random videos (bordering on inappropriate—we’ve blocked anything and everything actually inappropriate). This, even though he knows I have Securly set up so that… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): We brought my daughter Jade to college! It’s official—she’s there. She’s majoring in AI, with plans to get a master’s in Data Science. I’m both incredibly proud of her and sad to see her leave! We’re nervous about how everything’s going to work with COVID (they already have the first two weeks all completely online for people who need to quarantine because they’re traveling from high-risk states), but I guess we shall see! Seeing your first kiddo off to school is HARD! (I’m guessing it will be just as hard when the next one leaves.) We watched: My daughter… Read more »

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): We watched: My daughter Danielle (and my son, Noah, who has joined us in watching) and I are now six episodes into season 7 of The 100! We’re catching up! Packing and planning. My oldest leaves for college on Thursday! This Thursday. I can hardly believe it. Painting. As I mentioned last week, we bought my younger daughter a new bed. It needed a paint refresh, so we repainted the whole thing and then added some blue accents. We also started prepping for painting Jade’s room. Oh, and we bought a new (used) bed for Noah, who will be moving… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): As you can see, I’m a day late with my Sunday Post. So, since I obviously haven’t been blogging, what have I been up to? Playing Wordscapes. I spent way too much time on this silly little game on my phone. I should probably delete the thing. We watched: My daughter Danielle and I are now four episodes into season 7 of The 100! That’s right—we’re in the current season now! SCBWI Summer Spectacular! This online conference ran last Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Lots of great content!! Then, yesterday, I had a consultation with Melissa Manlove, an editor… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): We watched: My daughter Danielle and I are already more than halfway through season 6 of The 100. Very soon, we will have caught up with the rest of the world! SCBWI Summer Spectacular! I’m attending this online conference—it’s been great so far! We made another gate! My husband and I made gate #2 (out of three) for the kitchen. We’ve run into some issues with installation, so we haven’t decided if we’re “done” or not (it’s up, and it could be called done, but we might change the installations slightly—with projects like this and a house with walls that… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): We watched: My daughter Danielle and I just started season five of The 100. I’m still really enjoying watching the series again. It gives such a different perspective to know what’s coming. I also watched several episodes of Indian Matchmaking. I like Married at First Sight, and arranged marriages sort of seem like a more “real” version of that. It’s very interesting to see how arranged marriages work (or at least one way that they work). My daughter Danielle and I made a birthday present for my husband. You can see it in my latest junk art post (even… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): We watched: My daughter Danielle and I finished season three of The 100 last night. We’re catching up! We bought a new (used) dining table and chairs. We got a beautiful cherry dining room set, but the top has some scratches that we’ll need to fix, so we’ve been experimenting with one of the leaves to figure out the best way to do it. My daughter painted a couple more masks. She did a logo for a friend of mine (her first paid mask!) and a butterfly for my mom, and she finished the anime one for Jade (apparently these characters are… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Once again, I’m getting this post up very late. We’ve been working on projects all weekend long, and I just didn’t have time to get it up earlier. Well, it’s still Sunday… Here’s what else we’ve been up to this week: We watched: My daughter Danielle and I are finishing season two of The 100 as I write this. Now for season three! We finished refinishing that antique cabinet I told you about last week. It’s really nice to have more storage in our kitchen! Here are a couple of pics of how it turned out: We also built… Read more »
