Happy Wednesday! I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for What’s Up Wednesday. I’m going to get to the questions today!

Monday – taquitos
Tuesday – chili
Wednesday – something from the fridge
Thursday – something from the freezer
Friday – pizza
Saturday – hamburgers
Sunday – I have no idea
WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT…
About a month ago when were all out and about living our lives and not worried about the global pandemic that was about to change everything.
I’m also reminiscing about our trip to Aruba. One of the guys that went with us has been sending out the top 10 quotes from the trip and it has me ready to go back!
WHAT I’M LOVING…
All this family time. We have been spending so much time together and I’m loving it. Our schedules were so busy this winter so this feels wonderful. We’ve eaten more meals together in the past week than we have in the past month. We are taking walks and playing family games. It’s been good for my heart!
WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO…
STAYING HOME!!! STAY HOME PEOPLE!!
We’ve been trying to figure out how learning looks at home but not making things too permanent because I bet that some changes are coming.
Jeff’s been tackling some of the home schooling duties. He’s writing his own curriculum to teach the boys about great athletes and sports events that happened before they were born.
I’ve been walking and running at least 5 miles every day. The fresh air and exercise endorphins have been so helpful to keep my mood positive.
WHAT I’M DREADING…
Oh, I am trying not to dread right now. I am dreading the disappointment that may come for Jack if/when big 5th grade celebrations are canceled. I am holding out hope that we can find a special way to mark this milestone.
I am also dreading possibly finding out that someone I love has contracted Covid-19. I am hoping that our social distancing and diligent handwashing will help keep us safe. 🙏🏽
WHAT I’M WORKING ON…
Whoa! So much!! I am working on figuring out distance learning. Here in Maryland (as of Tuesday night) we haven’t heard anything definite about how our schools are going to proceed starting March 30th. As a media specialist, I am preparing to be a resource for my staff no matter what is decided. I find that I respond best to uncertain times by being extra prepared.
I am also working on finding a good device for my kids. I am looking for chromebooks for my kiddos. Anyone have a chromebook they love?? Any recommendations? Thank you!!!
WHAT I’M WATCHING…
I have been watching a lot of Netflix while I’m on the treadmill. I am almost finished season 3 of The Crown and season 6 of Grace and Frankie on Netflix. I was excited to see that Golden Girls are back on Hallmark at 10. I love falling asleep to the Golden Girls.
WHAT I’M READING…
I just finished The Jetsetters and Always the Last to Know. I’m reading You Are Not Alone right now. It’s good!
WHAT I’M WEARING…
Not too many pictures but I am currently wearing all the leggings, tank tops, and quarter zips. I am so comfy! I’m actually wearing two of these outfits every day – one for working out and one for my day.
I wore all the green for St. Patrick’s Day.
WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND…
A whole lot of nothing! I am hoping to read a bunch and go for a little hike with our family.
WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH…
I am looking forward to celebrating Easter! I am looking forward to spring weather and more daylight. I am also looking forward to a little more certainty in our life.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW…
Oh my goodness, so much is new. EVERYTHING is new in how we move throughout our days. We are staying 6 feet from everyone we see. We are using Zoom to catch up with friends and see their faces. We are staying home and working from home. We are hoping that all the health care workers are staying healthy and safe. We are so thankful for everyone who is going to work. Thank you to all of you and stay safe!
But do you know what isn’t new, we are still looking for the sunshine and enjoying it. We are finding as many silver linings as we can. There are a lot of things not going well. While we acknowledge them, we are still looking for the things that are great and finding reasons to smile over here. Have a great day full of sunshine and books!

How was Jetsetters?! I want to read that next!
It was good! I gave it ☀️ ☀️ ☀️ ☀️/5. Enjoy!
Those shamrock sneakers are so cute! I don’t even have one thing in that bright Kelly green and every year think I’ll get something just for St. Pat’s day but I never do.
Now’s the time!! Spring colors are out and St. Patrick’s day items may be on sale. Happy shopping!
Love the note you ended with! Yes to finding the sunshine & even being that sunshine too 🙂
I’m late in catching up with my WUW reading. I read You Are Not Alone this month and I LOVED it. It kept me guessing until the last pages.
And we go around the table every night and say what we’re thankful for. It’s a good way to find the happy in every day.
