I hate saying TGIF so without sounding too cliche I am very happy that it is Friday. This week has been a hard adjustment from summer to homeschooling full-time again. Especially with Roo doing highschool workload. I think I am going spend the weekend (or part of it at least) trying to organize next week a little better so it goes a little smoother. I also need to clean off my desk and work area so she can set the laptop up near my computer when we are working together. It’s kind of hard to get things done when you are trying to work over the top of play doh creations and crafting supplies (ahem Merle). Did anyone else have a rough start this week?

I swear I am having a complete fail with Zara at the moment. I still have yet to spend all the gift cards that I got for my birthday because I keep ordering stuff and having to return it. I think they cringe when I walk in now. Although I am pretty excited that animal print is so big again this year because it means I get to bust out my animal print jacket soon. And speaking of that jacket, they have one that is very similar at Zara that I included in my round-up above. Are you still loving animal print?

Tomorrow is Fan Expo which is like Comicon but actually bigger, and me being the procrastinator that I am only finished Merle’s skirt today for her costume. I also still have to repair Roo’s Hogwarts school sweater and shorten Merle’s purse strap tonight before bed.

To go along with my procrastination I have to put together the girls school stuff this weekend for our back to school start on Tuesday. The first week back is probably going to be pretty lax anyway, since I am still waiting for a couple of school books to arrive, and Roo has to get a cavity filled on Wednesday.

I’ll post a picture of Merle in her finished costume on my Instagram in the morning. She always loves this weekend because she gets to do a trial run on this year’s Halloween costume.

There are lots of sales going on over the next few days and everything I linked comes from a retailer that is having a sale or has a coupon code (except number 22 which is from Zara and we all know they rarely have sales).

One more week of summer and I finally figured out what we are doing for school this year…..kind of. I need to find some science, and history resources for Merle, and decide if this year is world history or Canadian history for Roo. She’s starting high school which is so insane. I can’t even wrap my head around that fact and it’s a little over a week away.

I ordered some nice things from Zara this week using my gift cards. Number 5 up on the collage was one of the sweaters I got. Although  I had to head back in the store today and exchange to for a larger size, because it is quite short-waisted and the next size up fits better in length. I also got these jeans which are fabulous and my new favourites. They fit tight so maybe a size up there too.

It’s supposed to rain all weekend which I am looking forward to because it gives me an excuse to stay in and work through my “holy shit summer is almost over” list. First thing on my list is to finish the skirt for Merle’s costume to wear to Comicon next weekend. She gets to try out her Halloween costume which is always super fun for her.

So much to do and I am rapidly running out of time. I’ve seen a lot of people’s kids starting back up at school already, but school doesn’t start here until after Labour Day so I still have a bit of time to get everything I need to get done. Labour Day weekend is also Comicon and Merle wants to test out her Luna Lovegood Halloween costume by dressing up for it. This means that I need to get my shit together and finish the skirt and earrings before then.

I was trying to watch my eating this week by logging it in My Fitness Pal. I wanted to see the areas that I need to work on, but after this week I’m not sure that is a smart idea. I find that I am starving every night before bed by doing this, and if I try to ignore it I get light-headed and weak. I think that I am better off not documenting everything and just try to make healthier choices because right now my hands are shaking from bring so hungry. I think the new Ramen place down the street is calling my name.

I checked to mail today and was excited to see that my new Feminist AF pin arrived. I’m going to sport this baby everywhere. Maybe I’ll even buy a couple for the girls. $2 from every pin sold goes to Now Australia which is an organization that was inspired by the #metoo movement.

I got a couple of Zara gift cards for my birthday so I am actively watching the website for new fall arrivals. I’m looking forward to some new sweaters. Speaking of sweaters, Roo asked for some “soft and fuzzy” sweaters for fall and when I was shopping yesterday I found this one for her. It is neither soft, nor fuzzy but she loves it as I knew she would.
