August 2019 Wrap Up

I realize we're into the second week of September already and most people do this wrap up immediately after the month is done, but I'm late and it's fine.

Everyone knows to have low expectations of me and it's fine.

Totally fine.

I feel like August is always super busy for us because we are always in a mad dash to get stuff done we wanted to, get ready for fall, and then do our regular life stuff. It's always so much, but I feel like this year it was particularly insane knowing I had to get all four kids ready for school.

I also grossly underestimated how expensive that was going to be and I only had to buy things for three kids. In a few years I am going to be screwed when all four are in public school and need supplies but also need clothes. I  need to start playing the lottery, scratch tickets, looking for a sugar daddy for Thursday nights only because I'm too busy otherwise, something. But here's the wrap up for August with the links in case you missed any of it.

  • Lucy turned 3 and that was pretty great. 
  • We went to see Thomas the train and you'll be happy to know I didn't buy ANYTHING in the shop because we are poor but I didn't get suckered this time. 
  • We did our summer road trip, this time to Missouri. It wasn't the worst but it wasn't our favorite trip, but we can cross another state off our map so that was exciting. 
  • We completed phase one of The Great Porch Fix, and we're gearing up for siding to go on before winter and that means next summer? I get to plant things in my yard around the house. They'll probably just die and that's OK but still, it's very exciting. 

Books I read: a total of 10 and I feel annoyed that's all it was. I know September will be more but I'm behind on my Goodreads challenge this year and I need to really step it up! You'll see my Brittainy C. Cherry obsession began this month and it's going strong into September here. I have a bunch of books to review for September that you will LOVE so stay tuned for those! 
So that was basically my August 2019. I already said September is bananas and it really is. Two weeks in and I'm waving the flag. Oy.

You really did have a busy August! Vacation and getting ready for school takes a huge chunk of time!

Sounds like you had a full August! I've never read anything by Brittainy C. Cherry but I'm going to have to check some of those books out!

I had uniforms for school until I went to college, and honestly, it was great. I'm sure it was cheaper for my parents too, but it was also nice not worrying about clothes every day.

I'm glad you had a fairly good summer. I hope Fall is great, and that's exciting your porch is coming together.

Wow yes you were busy. I remember having 3 in school and yep it was crazy expensive. We lived in Florida for a few years and the public schools had uniforms..it was the best thing ever. Saved us a mint!
