OK, so much for blogging while starting a full-time job. Obviously I kinda failed at that. I’ve been at my new job for about 5 months! Which may mean that I’ve consumed more Starbucks than usual.

A latte on The Royal Mile in Edinburgh, Scotland.

My brain is trying to get used to keeping track of so many different things all day! Not that I didn’t before, but it was nothing like this. However, I am happy to say that the ol’ brain seems to be working like a charm. The job is going well and I have learned SO much and am having fun. Plus how many people get to be spoiled by having an office 5 minutes from home plus the flexibility to work from home when needed?

I’m still trying to get the rhythm of home & work. Dinners have suffered and I’m having to accept the fact that I just need to go back to making really easy meals for a while. I’ll gradually work my way back into some of the more complicated ones. It’s been an adjustment but my family is good with it all. And my son has been doing all the dishes this Summer. Yessss.

Summer has been so busy! Not just with working, but our family joined my son’s school trip to Europe for almost 3 weeks!! It was fabulous and exhausting all at the same time. I don’t even know how I could begin to post pics here because there are so many, and trying to tell you all about the trip would be like writing a book, but I was inspired to write a couple of poems on the trip and will share those along with a couple of pics – in another post soon. Up next is a camping trip with our church and then Boom…school starts!

How about you? What’s going on? What’s new? What fun things have you done this Summer? When do the kids go back to school? Do share! That is, if any of you are still around – LOL! :)

Hugs and kisses to you or handshakes if that’s more your thing!

With love,
from Lisa Marie

  1. Well hello there stranger. Boy you have been busy. I loved seeing all your pictures on FB. It looked like such a fun time. This Summer has gone by way to fast. And it’s been HOT and we’ve had lightening storms almost every afternoon since Summer started. So needless to say I’m looking forward to Fall…..and football season. Woot! Woot! We will probably start school next week if I get my act together.
    Well I’ll take that hug and give one back.
    Miss you my friend.

    • Thank you my friend!! Wow – that’s crazy with the lightning storms. You be careful! :) I’m kind of ready for some Fall soups and thinking about Thanksgiving, but not ready for B to start quite yet either (’cause then he’ll be in 10th grade – Nooooooo). Love ya!

  2. Hi Lisa! I too have enjoyed seeing your photos around Facebook. I am thankful to hear the full-time job is going well. My kids start school on August 27th. Looking forward to reconnecting!
