And another week is gone. It’s kind of freaking me out that the weeks are flying by. I have a vacation coming up at the end of the month and I am not at all prepared. Yikes.
So… like, what can be said about Monday? It always feels a little like being fatigued in a swimming pool, trying to climb out on the deep end, but slipping on the tiles. This week, I spent the day trying to get my life together. At least I had a crockpot to cook for me and kids who cooperated for the most part.
For school on Tuesday, we were talking about the letter F. They had an assignment to write their favorite F-words. When I was transferring their answers into a Venn diagram, I was impressed that “fuck” wasn’t on their lists. However, when I asked them what they thought my favorite F-word is, all three boys yelled, “fuck!” Cool. Claudia wore this new dress for the first time and I totally freaked out over her in it. So damn cute. We went to the store and I finally decided to try some coconut vinegar. I love apple cider vinegar for all its health benefits, but wanted to mix it up a little. I’ve been taking a daily shot of coconut vinegar and it definitely has a more mild taste than ACV.
Wednesday was super lovely. I have newly designated hump day as park and library day. This first run of that worked out very well! In the evening, I made spaghetti and celebrated Winesday. Of course, Claudia demanded I read her books to her repeatedly.
Does anyone else have an improvement in mood start around Thursday? It’s the promise of the weekend to come…. I start getting an extra pep in my step. I didn’t even get annoyed when Claudia wanted to try on all my “card-e-mans.” Vodka may have played a part in the patience.
I spent Friday running errands and crafting after we finished school for the week. Lavar Burton has a great Reading Rainbow video about how money is made. Claudia’s bows have been in a shoebox since we moved here and so things weren’t being worn. I have beautiful bow holders I made her in the storage unit, but they wouldn’t look right in the half bath, where I do her hair. I grabbed a couple of inexpensive items (a wall sign from Dollar Tree and ribbon on sale at Michael’s) and made a new one. Bonus points for the fact that it will match the existing ones in storage once we move this fall.
Saturday was amazing, at it always tends to be. After manicures and mimosas, and a leg rub, I took the rest of my drink for a car ride. We tried to make it to an open house, but the realtor had already left. So we hopped all over the metroplex, hitting up Sam’s Club, Target, and Walmart. We ended the day with homemade pizza and a Dateline episode.
Sunday went as most of them do around here… did nothing. Well, I did organize all my writing utensils into my new 160-slot case. And I definitely did some drinking and eating. And for sure, as always, did some bed lounging.
Do you also have that one day a week that you just do….nothing?
