Sunday Scratches is where I share the little stuff that has happened throughout the week. In hockey, “scratches” are people who are on the roster but do not play in the game. On the blog, “scratches” are the things that have happened to me throughout the week that aren’t necessarily big enough to be an entire post.

Happy Sunday! Here are the scratches for the week.
I felt like a bit of a zombie this week after the stress of last week. I struggled to find the motivation to do, well… anything. But at least the week is over and I’m feeling a bit more energized!
On Monday, I did something super adult—I ordered a new washer and dryer! And I’m like, really sadly excited about it. They’re getting delivered on Saturday, and the timing couldn’t be better—the washer has started making terrible noises during each load. Fingers crossed it holds on for one more week!
On Thursday, we won an award at work! We nominated ourselves for the American Marketing Association of Cincinnati’s Pinnacle Awards, and we won Best Scrappy Marketing Campaign for our virtual summer camp, including camp subscription boxes! It was a combined effort from both marketing and outdoor program, and I’m so proud of the work we did.
Yesterday I visited my parents for the day! We went through some old toy bins that had been hidden in the back of my dad’s closet (anyone else remember Hit Clips?!), got some awesome soul food for lunch, watched a bit of The Home Edit’s show on Netflix, and made masks!
Oh, and I’ve been crushing my reading goal this week. I finished three books! I had been reading two heavy books when RBG died, and needed a mental break, so I finally broke open the Percy Jackson series, which I’ve had for years. I was juuuuust too old for them when they came out, but I saw the movie back in 2010 (I was working in a movie theatre at the time so I saw pretty much every movie that came out 2008-2013) and was always vaguely interested in the series. I got all 5 books for a dollar at a library used book sale a few years back, and I decided to finally read them! Plus, once I finish the series, I’ll put them all in my neighbor’s Little Free Library so I can cross #4 off my 101 in 1001 list!
