Mondays I typically sleep in instead of going to the gym and after getting up at 4:18 with Dutch due to the thunder storms I pushed it all the way to 6:30.
Coffee is always my first stop. Keith leaves around 5:30am so he always has the pot ready to go and his coffee is the best
Carly has psoriasis which we just couldn’t get a handle on even after receiving a prescription med. I finally decided to set an alarm on my phone each morning and each night and we are going on about 45 days now.
I am so happy to see there is really no noticeable irritation any longer. Poor girl, for years I just thought she was crawling around on her knees too much at school.
It was terrible lighting due to lots of rain but here we are on the way to school. Carly’s school starts at 7:55 and Dillon’s around 8:15 so we make the rounds and thankfully we were early enough to miss too much traffic which usually sucks when it’s raining.
I ran back home to make sure the bathroom was empty and let the tile guys in. Eek….master shower demo today!
Breakfast is my favorite and I made a little scramble with leftover fajita fixings. I suck at making it pretty but it sure was yummy.
Just the right amount of traffic for my commute to work which is only about 8 miles. I really do consider this one of the plusses to living here.
10:15 and it was snack time so I nibbled on a few blackberries.
This was pretty much my view the remainder of the day. Typically I stand for about half to 3/4 of the day and sit for a part but today I stood all day long. No meetings meant I was more productive for sure.
4:30 and it was time for my favorite drink of the day! I am seriously addictive to Spark and it gives me just the boost I need to make it through to bedtime.
Again, evening commute is pleasant!
Picked up Dillon from his pitching lesson at 5:30
Grabbed Carly Jo from ballet at 5:45 and bonus was able to visit with Holly for 15 minutes!
Keith’s uncle passed away last Friday morning so he was late coming home as he needed to be with his family at visitation. No Keith meant no formal dinner and I seriously grabbed my favorite snack of Julio’s hot sauce and chips. #iwillneverlosethesehips
This is my last year to be the treasurer for the elementary PTO and we have a meeting this week so I needed to spend a little time making sure the bank account was reconciled. After 3 years I’m so glad to be handing this one off.
Finished rinsing the fruit we bought Sunday. Have you ever added vinegar to the water? You know how apples have that waxy film? Well soaking in vinegar and water takes care of that and seems to make the fruit last longer. It’s possible the fruit being clean just makes my family eat it faster but who knows.
I know it’s only Monday but at 8:30 I decided why not. I mean it had been open since Friday and I didn’t want it to go bad.
The kids decided bacon was the preferred choice for their dinner. Dillon ate bacon and only bacon.
I put together a pot roast, potatoes and carrots in the crockpot for tomorrow while I waited on the bacon. I love using a combo of broth, lipton onion soup mix and cream of mushroom. Of course if you have someone who needs to avoid salt this would not be the preferred combo!
Little bit had a piece of toast with homemade strawberry jam with her bacon.
I finally made it to my bedroom for a little Gilmore Girls while folding a load of laundry. I did not make it to put said laundry away.
