Project 365 {week 29}

This week sort of felt never-ending.

Yet here it is: the end.

You know how I know this week was cray?  I took all my pictures this week with my phone.

I didn’t pick up my DSLR OR my point and shoot.

Cray. Zee.

July 15: grocery shopping with hair in a scarf. Hot weather, yo.

July 16: new phones!

July 17: I actually get dressed up and do my hair for a bridal shower.

July 18: I walked into Charlie’s room to this.

July 19: grocery shopping for our cottage vacation

July 20: Cortney buys me all the things for burns. Also? Best husband ever.

July 21: packing for vacation with 4 people is more work than with 2 people.

so yeah, we are on vacation.

Well, I am with Eddie and Charlie.

Cort is home because he has to work.

It’s not ideal, but at least we had him with us for the weekend.

So no, Sluiter Nation is not empty.

Don’t try to rob us…you’ll just make Cort scream like a girl.


While I am gone, you can read this letter to Daniel Tosh that I wrote.

And on Tuesday, I will have a post on Borderless News and Views about my friend, Mark, and his partner’s immigration situation. So read that too.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. You make me laugh… hope you have a great vacation. 🙂

    Happy vacationing!

  3. My scream may sound like a girl, but its a scary girl. 🙂

  4. you look so pretty (the scarf in your hair is so 70’s and fun)

    and I love your dress for the shower and those boys, CUUUUUTTTEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Umm-that dress is CUTE! And, it cracks me up how close to the TV Eddie is sitting in that last picture! Jonah tries to do the same thing, but I think I’ve scared him by telling him he’ll burn his eyes out if he sits that close! (crazy mother, I know)

  6. i may be giggling at the thought of cort screaming like a girl. hope you all have fun!

  7. Love the pic of you with Charlie in the sling. And thank goodness for our phones and the cameras on them… would be lost without it!!! Enjoy your vacation!!!
