Remember those issues with my site loading or being unavailable? After talking with my site designer, she felt it could be a combination of hosting server issues as well as potential coding conflicts among templates, WordPress, and my plugins. She gave me some great starting points before getting my host involved and/or potentially spending money to upgrade to VPS. So, after some major testing this week, I think I have the problem resolved. I have not noticed the same error message at least when I have been updating posts on my end. Please, please let me know if you still have issues outside of slow loading. (That is definitely going to require an upgrade to a different server.) Otherwise, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that all of these problems are dust in the wind…
The first official week of cross country practice, affectionately known by the kids as Hell Week, is in the books. Holly struggled a bit having to run such long distances for five days in a row. Connor loved every minute of it and even attended as many evening practices, the second practice of the day, as possible. Next week is Connor’s first meet, so things are moving quickly.
On the calendar now is Holly’s dance schedule for the year, not including dances she is in for the competition team. She is slated for yet another busy year with two ballet classes in addition to everything else she normally takes. Given how nervous she is for middle school and uncertain about how things will be for her once school starts in September, dance is her one constant and may be the only thing that is preventing her from having meltdowns due to nerves at this point in time. I am so glad she has that in her life.
Even though we have not yet started anything approaching fall-like weather, Jim still managed to come down with a nasty cold this week. In the true spirit of being a man, he acted like he was dying, staying at home for a day, sneezing and coughing loudly enough so that we all knew he felt miserable. Thankfully, he is on the mend, and now we are busy disinfecting the house because the kids and I do not want to give him the chance of getting it again.
On the site for the past week, here is what I posted in case you missed them the first time:

I hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday doing whatever makes them happy. Have a great week, and I’ll see you here next week!
