What We've Done in CLE Lately

What We've Done in CLE Lately

Hello, June!

Yes, I know that that this middle of the month. But, I'm finally starting to catch my breath from the last two months! And, where the heck is the sunshine Cleveland?!

I mentioned in my last post that I've been dealing with a lot of changes. Some big and have messed with me and little ones that just annoy me. There have been several wonderful changes too.

My baby brother's baby girl is turning one soon and my family was together to celebrate a wedding.

There was a time that it didn't seem that these moments would be possible. Having family separated by distance and sorrow is challenging. But, what a blessing when everything falls into place.

In the fall, my son will be going into high school, at my alma mater no less. I never thought kids and marriage were for me and now I have a teenager and a nine-year-old. I always knew it would be difficult. But, I wasn't prepared for how amazing it continues to be having these humans in our lives.

They are funny and smart. Kind and often exasperating, so full of endless love.

Here's a recap of the last two months thanks to the randomness of my Instagram posts.

9 Quotes About Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

I've been overwhelmed by the usual changes of life. 

You know, the ones that are inevitable. The changes you can't stop like time.

Taking on more responsibility at my day job drained me for several months. I started a new anxiety medication that knocked me on my ass with nausea. My weight has gone down and up. I started working out again to stop because of car issues and not enough sleep. I sound like I am complaining, but these are not necessarily bad things. Just life.

End of the school year and the seeming-endless to-dos is wrapped up. And, now I have a kid about to enter high school. High. School.

I'm so thankful for social media memories. I hope Facebook is around 30 years from now so my kids can see what we did in memories!

I took on a new role within the PTA. Actually, two new roles. I knew I was going to take over events for my daughter's elementary school, but on a whim, I signed up for the Reflections program for citywide PTA council. I am excited and stressed about this one. I could totally f*ck this up. Fingers crossed.

More changes are coming and I'm not ready.

While waiting for changes, here are some of my favorite quotes. Happy Pinning! know that a good, long session of weeping can often make you feel better #quotes
