#WeekendCoffeeShare: In Which I Am a Wee Ambivalent About Things


If we were having coffee, we would be curled up on my couch, at least for the morning. Little Jedi leaves tomorrow for another week at his dad’s house, and I’m enjoying his company while I can. At least this is his last full week away. Little Jedi’s last week away and the arrival of August both serve to remind me that it’s nearly school time again.  For the first time, I won’t be going back when school starts. It’s an odd feeling, but an enjoyable one. I’m happier now that I’ve moved away from that environment and am working on some things that I’m really passionate about.

I’ve spent a good portion of the week, though, feeling anxious and stressed. I didn’t manage to post on Tuesday this week, which is a bit out-of-the-ordinary for me, especially when I’m not also posting somewhere else. But yesterday turned into a good day for discussions, though, both on- and offline, and today promises a bit of laziness and also a bit of fun.

In the afternoon, I’m going to the opening of a nearby arts and fitness center, where there should be all sorts of things to do and see. And tonight, Little Jedi, Sam, and I will pull on our pajamas and settle in for a movie or two, maybe for a round of Super Mario World on the Super NES.

Tomorrow promises to be a busy day for us all. Sam and I will be spending our afternoons working on projects after we drop off the Little Jedi, who will get to see a few of his cousins while they’re visiting. I’m quite happy that he’ll get to spend time with them. He has an entirely different experience with cousins than I. Little Jedi has only 2 first cousins, though he has quite a few more 2nd cousins that are around his age. That’s because I have more than a dozen 1st cousins and probably too many 2nd cousins to count. I spent a lot of time with them when I was younger, naturally, getting up to all sorts of childhood capers.

So I’m a bit nostalgic. And I’m anxious. But I’m also hopeful. Things are moving in The Right Direction. I just wish they’d move a tiny bit faster.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you to look out for a Monster Monday post this week from Allison! I’m really happy to have Allison on board for a Monster Monday here, and I’m looking forward to the post and conversation on Monday! I’ll be back to my usual Top Ten Tuesdays as well this week, along with the Wordless Wednesday and Thursday Thirteen. And come back Friday for a super-special surprise post. 🙂

For now, I’m off to visit other coffee posters and perhaps even to squeeze in some writing time before the afternoon’s activities. Link up your coffee posts below, and don’t forget to use the #weekendcoffeeshare tag on Facebook and Twitter!

  2. My daughter has one cousin on my side, and more than she can count on her dad’s but she doesn’t see them as often as many live on another coast. I’m not too close with my cousins as they’ve mostly lived far from me, but we do keep on on Facebook 🙂 Hope next week is a less anxious one for you 🙂

    1. Oh no, the cousins are at Little Jed’s dad’s house! I’m having a relaxing Sunday, at least this morning, and now it’s off to work on some business. Feeling less anxious today, which is nice—it’s just a work in progress!


  4. Where did the summer go? Once school starts back up it just seems like summer is gone and it is time to get ready for the blah winter months. Your planned evening sounds like so much fun. Loved watching movies and playing video games (Atari back then) with my kids and hubby. (I let them beat me!) 🙂

    1. Yeah, my son is really intrigued by the Super Nintendo, because he’s accustomed to the incredibly modern XBox and WiiU consoles and such, so watching him play older video games is really amusing.

      We’ve still got a few months of summer heat left—in the south, fall is pretty much an extension of summertime. But there’s still a difference, somehow. lol

      1. It will start cooling down (in normal times but nothing is normal with the weather lately) around the end of September. Just not ready for the seasons to change.
