It’s the 18th!!!! If you ever want to break into anything that’s mine, try some combo of repeating 18, and it should let you in. #favoritenumberforever #lucky18
School-from-Home is Fine. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. Two of my three kids are on a roll, have found a stride, and we’re all good. The third, (of note–the beyond genius one) was found folding laundry, away from her screen, with a headset on one day–while a cake she whipped up from scratch was baking — she told me she was multitasking and didn’t really need to be in front of her screen. Same week that she apparently did 7 of 17 assignments under another student’s log-in, and so we spent Friday night and Saturday morning re-doing assignments.
So my mom helped me tag team micro-managing that kid’s executive function and attention this week–because it’s a full-time job, yet necessary. So you know…my stride, might be delayed by a week or so, yet I remain confident we’ll all get there. And no, not for a minute did I think it would be without challenge, but yes, my youngest likes to stretch me–in all the ways. I love her more.
This whole week, was a stretch of every bit of me–not just in that regard. My friend KB sent me a note at some point this week that said, “Your track record for getting through tough days is strong…so far you are at 100%.” I’m just here to say….yours is too. You are also at 100%…just keep going–even when you have nothing left, just keep going.

Why it only occurred to me to support BLM, through BLM until now, well that took the inspiration of a friend that sent me a link to a hoodie that I now live in. Sometimes it’s the not-so-obvious-at-first little things, that are really the biggest things. This is one of them. #represent
