The Life I Have

I always vowed I would never apologizes on my blog for how long it has been between posts. But, I fell really, really guilty. I always know that my life basically goes into survival mode during play season, and of course blogging in one of the first things to go. Along with baking, reading, having people over, cleaning, my desire to cook, grading and basically everything other then sleeping, working on stuff for the play, teaching and keeping myself basically hygienic.

So that is just one more reason why Easter is so wonderful. Not only does it mean the salvation of my soul, but it also means mandatory days off of play practice and school. Though our long weekend did get eaten up by a little senior class trip to Chicago, but that is why there is Easter Monday! So, now that I have my home in a little bit of order again, I decided to post, only to realize that I have nothing to post. Really, I have no life right now.

The last week, I was at school really late, spent over 20 hours on a bus with 37 high school seniors, got way less then the amount of sleep I need to function normally, became really sick of people telling me how tired I looked, was reminded of how much I really don't like large cities and turned into a Popsicle at a baseball game. Now, don't get me wrong, it was fun, but I am looking forward to a normal Easter break next year with no class trip in there. I did have a great time being surprised by some kids in a positive way, spending two hours in a book store and finding a great book of poetry, helping out some people who really need help, eat some great food, and became thankful again for this life I have been blessed with.

I guess that it is probably wrong to say that I don't have a life because I do. Maybe it is not as fantastic or exciting as I would like it to be, but it is the life I have been given and I should take it for granted.

You should feel guilty! I want to know what's going on EVERYDAY!!
I've been on a kick for blogs lately because when we move to Michigan we think we should start a lil' site so people can keep up with us if they want to and if they don't- no pressure-
But- what for a name? Aaron wants to use the first and quickly rejected headline that I came up with for a newspaper article- a bigger mystery than what's for dinner? (I thought it sounded good- it was a about a supper murder mystery) but I'm not so sure... I guess we can't steal Talen's Tales? (Thompsons Tales? hmmm... nice ring...)

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!

I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

 The little home is full of all sorts of Mo…
