Life Lately: Volume 59

Hello! Let’s clear some lists, shall we? 140 teachers filled out my Google Form this year and included where they teach, what grade they teach, and more about their situations and classrooms. Teachers in this country don’t make nearly enough money and often have to fill their classrooms with supplies on their own dime.

That’s where we come in…

Help me clear their lists and supply their classrooms with the materials they need if you can in any capacity, even if it means buying just a set of pencils or sending the doc to someone someone else. Or clear a full list if you’re feeling extra generous!

I’m personally clearing 5 lists and my friends at Chappywrap and Dudley Stephens have each agreed to clear 2 of the lists in the doc. Yay for brands I love doing great things!

This week kind of sucked TBH. Not for any real reason other than I felt like I was scrambling to stay afloat.

We have so many things going on during our weekends this summer that it feels like we never get a breather as a family… I feel like I’ve been playing catch up all week long for the last few weeks. On Monday I went through my calendar and moved calls, meetings, and even friend hangouts as much as I possibly could so I could hunker down and tackle my insane to do list.

Today I feel a lot better and my anxiety is finally coming down now that I’m (mostly) caught up.

This weekend my cousin and her family along with my sister and her family are coming to visit and I’m SO excited! We haven’t seen this cousin since pre-pandemic days which is way too long for us. We are going to have a house full of babies and kids which is my life dream… although ask me what I think again two days in lol.

Sending you all love and light. xo
