|DD loved bowling yesterday.|
Today is my 7th Blogiversary. Happy Blogiversary to me! I think this is the longest time I've ever stuck at anything (besides teaching and being a mother - and no choice with those). So I'm joining the R2BC linky over at Mich's Mummy from the Heart as part of my Blogiversary celebrations. (Actually there are no other Blogiversary celebrations - this is it.) And here are my reasons 2B cheerful for this week.
It's my 7th Blogiversary. I may have mentioned that already. Almost 870,000 views over 920 posts. This year I want to break the 1,000,000 views. I'm not sure about passing 1,000 posts. I think maybe it's time to weed out some of the weaker posts from the beginning. And the posts where the photos or videos have mysteriously disappeared, which is extremely annoying. Anyhoo, congrats to me.
I finished writing my reports this week. I also caught up with a load of grading for my online college course. Still a fair bit of college grading to do. I also got completely up to date with my freelance writing.
Just as I was planning all the other Project January jobs I was going to get done this weekend, the second half of the freelance assignment arrived. So that's another 10 hours I'd not planned for in the coming week. (Although it does mean it will all be done in January, which is what I wanted).
We had another big rain storm last night. DD didn't go to school today. It's hardly worth going on a Friday morning anyway as they finish at 11.45 and do only 'light' lessons, so when the weather is bad on a Friday I let her stay home if she wants to.
It didn't snow. Although no one wants snow on a Friday/Saturday, we were hoping for maybe no school on Thursday or a bad snowfall that would give us Sunday off. No such luck. However there is another storm forecast for the end of next week....
DD went bowling for a birthday party yesterday evening. She loved it. She's asked me at least three times since last night when she can go again. I'm delighted to have something that she enjoys that's close by and that we can do together. Could we have found our sport?
As I watched the thunderstorm this morning, I smugly waited for my supermarket delivery that I'd ordered on Wednesday and scheduled for this morning. I only occasionally do online orders. It's usually when I need to buy another 8kg bag of laundry powder and/or when I have enough loyalty points for a free online delivery. When these two events collide I take the opportunity to stock up on non-perishables as well as my weekly shop.
There are some pitfalls to online orders but that's for a whole other post. Possibly tomorrow if I get done cooking up the 10kg of potatoes I accidently ordered (I thought I was ordering 2kg but turns out it was 2 sacks) and finding things to do with the 30 [small Middle-Eastern] cucumbers that make up 2kg of cucumbers. (Who knew cucumbers were so light?)
