Weekly Update (2/7/21)

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

It’s me again!

I know I haven’t written one of these in a couple or a few weeks? Honestly, time is getting the best of me. One day I thought it was a Friday as well as being two hours ahead of myself when it was in fact the weekend…haha. I’m seriously a mess when it comes to time.

I haven’t been blog-hopping every day but still try to go back and get caught up to see all of your posts. Adulting has definitely been taking my attention, especially when it has to deal with car issues. I knew it was bound to happen as it is a 99 Civic and we have owned it for over 6 years with almost 200,000 miles on it. It’s just not what I wanted to happen this early. On top of that I am already stressing about the end of the year. My husband (fingers crossed!) will be done with college. It will be a new transition and that comes with many things to be anxious about. I know it’s only February but your girl plans her stressing ahead of time, haha.

It’ll definitely be an interesting year full of wonderous adulting things that I’m just not looking forward too. It’s probably why I have been so focused on reading.

My daughter will also be school age this year and I have no idea what will come of that besides knowing we want to homeschool. That will again bring new challenges. She also lost her first baby tooth a couple weeks ago and she is only four…Why do they grow up so fast!?

Sorry this one is a longer update but just wanted to get my thoughts out there. It’s nice to be able to write them down. I’ve always found it therapeutic.

I hope you all have been doing well! ❤

  1. I find reading a nice, relaxing retreat after all the daily adulting too!

    Those kids do grow up fast, don’t they? My son started school this year and I still can hardly believe it, haha.

    I hope this upcoming week is a good one for you! 🥰

    1. If I didn’t have reading I don’t know what I would do, haha. Kids definitely never stop growing and it seems like they change a bit every day. I’m just not ready, haha. She says she will snuggle me until she is 30 so at least there is that!

  2. I have homeschooled my kids, and it’s one of the most challenging things in the world, but also the most rewarding. I was already teaching my kids at age 4, but it was all about fun and games at that age. Have fun with it and leave the stressing for later. (I know – easier said than done!) We’ve been dealing with vehicle drama ourselves the last couple weeks, so I hear ya there!

    1. Yeah she has been doing ABC Mouse for almost a year now and then we do other things with her. I’m just nervous that I will fail at teaching her but then I also remember some of my teachers in school were not great. It’s just an inner struggle. Sorry you are having vehicle trouble too! I love having a vehicle but it sucks at times, haha.


  3. Ugh, adulting really does suck sometimes but you know I’m totally on the same boat when it comes to not knowing how time passes so quickly 😂 I hope that your stress lessens as the days pass though! Have a great week ahead, Joanna! 💙

    1. Haha, it does and I feel like not knowing time just gets worse the older you get. Thanks! I’m just trying to avoid thinking about the long terms one to lessen my stress load. 😂
