Welcome to Friday Free-For-All, where I talk about anything and everything on my mind. Sometimes, it even makes sense!
#FlatsFriday: Hosted by the super awesome Susie at SuzLyfe. These are my favorite flats–they’re by Toms. Super comfy and durable!
Ben: This has been an exciting week for Ben. He finally (thank god) got a summer job, doing construction. Monday was his first day, and it seems to be going well. He gets along with the guys, and enjoys working outside, doing hard labor all day. He’s going to be so jacked by the end of the summer!
Also, he has been accepted to the Teacher Apprenticeship Program he applied to– he’ll start in August. He’s already hooked up with a mentor teacher and everything! I’m so excited that he’s making this career shift 🙂
This weekend will be the first in several, and the only for a while, that Ben and I are both home and don’t have anything planned–no road trips, no races, no vacations, no nothing. I’m really excited to just relax around the house for a while, maybe do some cleaning, and bust out our window AC unit–it’s getting hot and humid in New England! And do my FINAL LONG RUN BEFORE THE HALF of course. Holy crap.
Trouble in paradise. Ben and I are living with my sister. We’re currently having a financial dispute that will most likely result in either her or us (or both) having to move, and that’s a logistical and financial nightmare that I can’t even begin to consider right now without a major panic attack. I’ll probably talk more about this in the coming week, but it looks like we’ll probably be moving back in with his parents…
What are the rest of you educators up to this summer?
Have you ever lived with a sibling (not in your parents’ home)? How did it work out?
