Musings

It’s been a few weeks since a musings…  here goes!

General Mills sent us these new Pumpkin Spice Cheerios.  The boys have been LOVING them for breakfast and I have enjoyed them on top of my yogurt in the morning.  Def good for changing up the routine.

When we got back from Disney, I was sick as a dog and my car broke down on the way home from the airport.  Fun times.  HAHA!  I was afraid we’d have to buy a new one, but the Jeep is hanging in there for a little while longer.

Speaking of our trip, we got this email from Elsa.   Whit was literally over the moon.  He promptly wrote back.  One thing led to another and now I have been roped into taking the two of them to a dog Halloween party.  You read that right.

She’s not all good and sweet.  I came down to find this the other day.  Needless to say, the bacon was gone.

GT is once again the #4 engineering school in country! And our major (industrial engineering) has held on to the #1 spot since we started!!!   Proud to be a Yellow Jacket!!!

John told me the other day that he feels like I don’t spend much time with him lately. And, as much as it hurts to admit, he’s right.  A lot of things have contributed but primarily his school and sports schedules leave him with free time when I’m already exhausted from the day.  It felt SO incredibly good to take him to breakfast this morning – just the two of us.  We studied and talked and had a rather good time.  :-) As an added bonus I can now tell you every minute detail of climates, natural resources, and land features in Europe and how they effect trade.  I used to think the days were long and the years were short. It seems like the minute he hit middle school the days became short and the years even shorter.   Hold on tight – it’s a wild ride!

This is my fave Trader Joe’s meal.  I shared it here but now we add gyoza from the air fryer.  So good!

Whit is getting a painting of Elsa for his forever gift this year.  The artist shared this and I am so in love. I don’t know how I’m going to keep this hidden for three months!

I hope y’all have the happiest Friday!  We have some sports but nothing much else on the agenda.  I’m hoping to hang some pictures in John’s room and maybe cook a good dinner on the egg.  Mmmm….
