five on friday

{1} I still feel like I'm in the twilight zone given our current leadership. This quote by Frederick Buechner is more relevant now than ever. Big thanks to Tara for posting it on Instagram.

{2} We are projected to get a big storm today. It's not so much the snow they are worried about, but ice. The kids in our district have a snow day today which is really weird because when I left for work it was 55 degrees still. It's supposed to get bad around lunch and I plan on scooting out from work around that time and working from home the rest of the day. That's Ohio for you--55 in the morning, ice and 20 degrees a few hours later.

{3} Elden got this kit for Christmas and he is obsessed. He has been really into doing experiments lately and I highly recommend this one. Fair warning--it is pretty disgusting. Great for rainy or snowy days in, though.

{4} I've been in a fierce workweek step competition with my mom, two friends, and one of their moms. When I got my Fitbit I knew it might be a helpful tool for my exercise goals, but I had no idea just how motivating it would be for me. Yesterday I was determined to get ahead of my mom (she's been kicking my butt!) and I had 10,000 steps when I left for the gym and brought it hard to hit another 6,000. I am exhausted, but I am determined! If you were considering getting a Fitbit, I can't recommend it enough. Plus they're on sale on Amazon today! I have this one.

{5} Does anyone have the Ring doorbell? I reallllly want one - I told Jon it was next on my list of automated home purchases (we have the Nest thermostat and it is worth its weight in gold). Well the Ring is on sale for $134.80 and it is taking everything in me not to buy it.

Linking up with KatieAprilAndreaNarci and Erika!

  1. My niece would love Disgusting Science. She's really into gross humor right now.
