The First Week Of Overlap

Softball practice started this week.  I didn't stay on Monday, I left early on Wednesday, & there were basketball games on Tuesday & today, but Thursday I was there the whole time for practice.  I missed softball so much.  It felt so great to be out there with the girls for practice.  I am so glad that basketball is almost over & softball has begun.  This week & next week the basketball & softball seasons overlap though so for these 2 weeks I'm at work from 6:30-6:30.

Wednesday night Mr. Midwest & I went out for dinner.  It was so much fun.  We haven't done that in a long long time.  Like he drove up to my place, picked me up, & we went out.  It was great to have it feel like it did in the beginning again.  He wanted to take me to this place that I had never been to before but they were crazy busy so we wound up going to a place that I suggested that he had never been to before.  We got breakfast followed by frozen yogurt.

Thursday was such a shitty day so after soccer & softball practice Emily & I went out for beers, chips, queso, & salsa.  It was exactly what we each needed.  We were laughing so hard at one point that we were both crying & struggling to breathe.  They guys behind us even noted that it looked like we were going to pee our pants.  (For those of you that have been following along & noticed what I ate above & right here...yeah Whole30 came to an early end...recap coming next week)

I decided that I have too much else going on this month that I'm going to skip my manicure because concerts, rodeos, & out of town trips ain't cheap.  The above is exactly why I don't paint my nails by myself anymore.  I painted those Wednesday afternoon & within a day this is what they looked like.

After 1 pm today I will have no more stupid testing.  Having to sit in a room with 25+ kids testing for 4-5 hours is pure torture.  Especially when they finish early & I still have to make them sit there silently.


  1. I'm so with you - whenever I paint my nails they chip in a day :( hope you have a great weekend! xo, Biana

  2. i never pay for manicures because they always chip so fast!!
