Hello and Happy Monday! How was your weekend? We had a great one filled with some downtime, a cross country meet, the Breeder’s Cup and more.
…to tell you about my:
Here’s a peek at our weekend:
On Friday after school, I had a few errands to run. I stopped by Bath and Body because I was wanting to pick up a few fall candles (hoping they’d have them on sale). Well, there were no fall candles to be found, but I picked up a few winter ones because they were on sale.
- Marshmallow Fireside
- Peppermint Sugar Cookie
- Snowy Coconut Frost
Then, I stopped by Ulta for shampoo, and then I picked up my Kroger Clicklist order. I was home by 4:30 and felt so accomplished!
We were up sooo early on Saturday to go to Louisville for Hayden’s cross country race. This was his first club race of the season. Travis has been coaching the Lexington group, and it was so fun to watch runners come together for this Middle School National meet. Hayden was running with the 7th and 8th graders, and had an PR for the 4k race. Last year, I remember the weather was so cold for this race. This year, was warm with major winds. Crazy November weather.
The kids stayed in Louisville with Trav’s family, and Travis and I hopped in the car, changed our clothes at McDonald’s and headed to…
…the Breeder’s Cup at Keeneland. We had such an amazing day (and night) with our friends. (More about Breeder’s Cup tomorrow!)
After such a busy Saturday, I was all about “falling back…” Travis was up early on Sunday for work, and I slept in a bit. That being said, by 9:00, I’d changed the sheets on two beds, unloaded the dishwasher, and put up one of my favorite skinny trees.
I will keep this tree here until we get our real one after Thanksgiving. Then, I’ll move it to our bedroom.
A few lights seem to be out, but it makes me happy.
Not only did Hayden run a 4k on Saturday, he then got up early yesterday and ran 6.5 miles yesterday with his cousin. Then, he had an amazing basketball game. It’s always fun watching him do his thing.
Well, this week is off to an odd start. We don’t have school today due to sickness. We were already scheduled to be out tomorrow for Election Day, so I guess they are hoping having today off will give those who are sick an extra day of rest, and I know the custodians are going to deep clean the schools. I will say on Friday that my school had over 30 teacher absences with 18 of them unfilled. So, I’m guessing today’s decision was also due to lack of subs.
Anyway, I hope everyone stays healthy! I know flu and RSV are rampant.
I hope you have a great day,
