Week in Review: Rhonda

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?

Week in Review: Rhonda

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?
