Ok, here we go . . .

I think I need to reinvent this thing.

{Major props to Mags for telling me her bookmark order. It’s making me think.}

So, to that end, let’s try this. Five things that are interesting this week that have nada to do with the White House and, as far as I can tell, aren’t storm-related. Thoughts?

  • Peter Kraus. Please discuss because I can barely handle it.
  • Aaron Rodgers. Could there be more articles written about his greatness? And, oops, Brady!
  • My kid in kindergarten. This week, Aaron asked her why she was so goofy and she said, “I’m goofy because I’m Molly.” Accurate answer, kid.
  • I saw my first rat this week as I biked to work in the pre sunrise hours. I did not enjoy any of this.

Ok. Please discuss any or all of this.

    That rat appearance is disgusting. I hate it that you had to see that. So far, in my long life, I never seen one in person.
    The SSvsVW match was astounding. Some of the best tennis I witnessed. Kinda wish that was the final. Although I love Madison Keys. Eager to watch the final today.
    And Molly’s quote is precious. That article about AR was amazing. He sure seems as if he is a thoughtful guy.

    It’s a good thing the rat was your last point as I would have never gotten past it. Have I ever mentioned my irrational fear of mice/rats? I think it might go back to when I read 1984. At any rate, harmless field mice have me terrorized not to mention what a full-grown rat would do. But putting that aside, I love the Molly answer. So honest and sure of herself, I love it.

    I’m still upset about Peter. I just don’t like Arie. This is going to be a hard Fall.

    Ha! Yeah, the Arie decision strikes me as . . . Odd. Like, he can’t have been their first choice can he? I mean, I’m no Bachelor expert like you, but he seems like a reach.

    It was the first time I’ve seen one in the wild, I think, and I’m truly surprised I didn’t fall off of my bike. They absolutely disgust me, but when it happened it didn’t freak me out quite as much as I expected.

After an extremely long and entertaining (for those over 6) retirement party, my little Bear has crashed with her little bear. . . . I’ve heard through the office grapevine that some peeps don’t think kids should be at events like this. And that’s a legit opinion. But it’s not mine or Aaron’s so I think we should be all good. . . . Retirements are so bittersweet. This one was a doozy. . . . #wisconsin #friends #ourkidcomeswithus #wiscobarkid #bearonbear #workfamily #humility #sincerity #honesty #love #b&w #eyelashes
A series I’m calling An End of a Era: Skye Had a Limit. Truth be told, she ghosted on Skye and the gang maybe two years ago so this era has been over for some time, but I’m just now getting around to offloading it. And in doing so, I was reminded of both how much we accumulated and in how many forms. The Etsy pegdoll form, in which she asked me to give them little matching string scarves; the tiny little ones Molly insisted on painting because she saw it on YouTube; the pirate series; the Patrollers as poofy rubber squishy friends; and so many more. I love how kids get so into these stories and characters, but the merch is overwhelming. Still, I got a teensy emotional clearing it all out. As you may have guessed. . . . . #pawpatrol #cleaninghouse #growingup #etsy #toomuchstuff #growingpains #decluttering #endofanera
The answer when I Googled why I couldn’t see as well. I’m no doctor, but this seems to check out. #googledoc #visionprobs #over40
Somehow this pic disappeared from my feed! I cannot stand for such an injustice. The best breakfast sandwich in Madison must be seen and heralded. Blueberry jalapeño jam?!? Who knew?! @ancorakingst apparently. #madisoneats #sandwiches #breakfastsandwiches #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwichesofwisconsin #sandwichesofmadison #ancoracoffeehouse
