Week in Review: Rhonda

Well it’s been a rough week.  So rough, that I didn’t even think about writing this post until after noon.  I woke up really sick Monday.  A cold morphed into a sinus infection and I was lucky enough to PMS through the entire thing!

Monday and Tuesday were complete blurs…. post office runs, shots of medicine, and lots of time in the bed reading and watching TV.  Overnight, about 2 am on Tuesday morning, we were woken by the weather.  Tornado sirens forced us into our tiny half bath, but we were very fortunate and suffered no damage.

Wednesday, we made a meal plan and a trip to the grocery store.  I was so excited to cook some yummy stuff.

I honestly can’t tell you what happened Thursday, other than drinking lots of coffee and tea for my throat.  I think I had pretty much hit the worst of my sickness.  I legitimately wanted to sleep all day.

Friday was Claudia’s birthday and we took a trip to her favorite place, Target.  She was able to choose one thing out of the dollar spot and naturally, she chose bubbles.  I hate bubbles, but birthday girl gets what she wants. After Target, I made taco salad and packaged up orders.

Saturday, we celebrated Claudia’s birthday in the best way.  As soon as Dustin got here, we had brunch, then opened presents and had cupcakes.

After that, Claudia and Quentin helped Stuart clean his motorcycle before we grilled burgers for dinner.  I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday.

Sunday we woke to lots and lots of rain.  The patio began to flood, but luckily it stopped short.  We had brunch again as usual then after Dustin headed back home, had some tv time in bed.

Sunday night was the ACM Awards, just about my favorite thing to watch all year.  I completed my journal spread and enjoyed too much vodka.

What did you do this week?  Any celebrations?

Dang.  Like, where did the week go??  It went by in such a blur.

Claudia woke up Monday deciding so absolutely follow me around all day.  That’s always a challenge when it comes to getting thing accomplished in a timely manner.

Tuesday was one of those days to get stuff done.  The realization that my annual beach trip is so soon motivated me to really buckle down my diet and exercise.  I had a great workout and ate perfectly between helping Quentin with his numbers and running errands with my little Minnie.

Wednesday was super amazing weather in the DFW, so we got the hell out of the house as quickly as we could finish school.  I even shortened the lessons, because I needed that fresh air in the worst way.  We had a great time at our favorite playground.  When I started dinner in the evening, everyone was TURNT and I had to retreat to the bathroom to drink my wine.  Bless.

Thursday, I got a lot done around the house and we had a longer school day than usual. Claudia helped me out on naming my future business and the highlight of the week – I GOT MY NEW MACBOOK!  I am loving it so much.  My old MacBook Pro was so worn out.  Big thanks to Stuart for spoiling me so good.  I also placed an Ulta order, which I hadn’t done in a long time.  I had to get on those 5x Tarte points while I had them.  If you aren’t in the rewards program at Ulta, you’re really missing out.

Friday, the kids and I went to Target.  This is legit one of my least favorite things to do.  Target is my happy place and they totally mess it up for me.  I spent too much, didn’t get everything on my list, and was all kids of frazzled when we left.  It exhausted Claudia though and she passed the fuck out at our late nap time.  When she woke up at 7:30, she was still cranky, but got much happier when Stuart came home and played with her.

I am just gonna go ahead and say that Saturday was the best day this week.  I put on my highlighter Chris Crocker “paintbrush” style (watch here if you aren’t familiar) and it was amazing.   I also gave stamping in my journal a try after hating it previously.  It turned out better.  But most of Saturday was spent just soaking up some Stuart time, which I don’t get nearly enough of.

Sunday was lovely, as Sundays tend to be.  We didn’t do much other than go to work with Stuart for a couple of hours and organize my underwear drawer.  Fancy.

It felt great to own the fact that I am never going to wear the tights in my collection and toss them out.  Did you do anything this weekend that just felt good?
