Welcome back to the blog. Thank you for showing up time and time again to see what we are up to. I am happy to tell you that I wrote a guest blog post at Rain in Style. Head over and check that out here.
This past week was seriously such a blur. I feel like I didn’t do a damn thing, but I also know for a fact that I was absolutely non-stop. Monday kicked off the week the same way it does every week – with lots of planning and organizing. I did get my cardio on with The Fitness Marshall and spend time with Claudia (though she actually gave me no choice).
In school Tuesday, we made and mailed birthday cards to my dad and ran some errands. It was a super sunny day and I would have loved to spend it at the playground, but the to-do list seemed to grow at a rate that made me feel as if I wasn’t actually crossing anything off. That is always a little discouraging for me.
On Wednesday, I did a lot of decluttering and organizing. Stuart has stuff in places that just doesn’t make sense to me. He lived a bachelor lifestyle before we moved in. Since we will be in this apartment until fall, I have to make some space and make it feel like home. I took his gigantic box of Sweet ‘N Low (GROSS), put packets into a jar by the coffee maker, and tucked the rest out of sight. I don’t know why, but that was such a huge relief for me.
We did a school activity revolving around the letter C and they all enjoyed it so much. We usually do their lessons on an individual basis, but this was my first try at integrating their studies and we will definitely be doing it again.
Wednesday was definitely a good day all-around, but I think the highlight for me was getting my TEXAS driver’s license in the mail! Super happy to be so official.
Thursday was hot as balls and after school, we had errands to do. After that, the kids napped while I had a beer and worked on St. Patrick’s decorations while catching up on the DVR.
I am a huge lover of my Fridays, but it started less than stellar, with Claudia not feeling great. She has this awful habit of holding her poop, therefore constipating her…and then she gets cranky. So she did all the whining Friday. I got to set up some journal pages for March though and make myself a lovely martini, so the day wasn’t a total loss.
Ah, Saturday. My lover. One of my favorite parts of Saturdays is when Stuart watches TV while I leisurely do my makeup. Even if we aren’t going anywhere, Saturday is the day I always play with makeup, either trying something different or just layering a lot on.
We took the kids to see Stuart’s lab, where Claudia was most excited to see their resident cat. It was just really a lovely day and we capped it off by going to Best Buy and ordering a new MacBook!!! Then I watched This Is Us and ugly cried my damn face off.
Sunday was like most – relaxed, lazy, and quiet. The only thing that differentiated it from others is that it was Oscar night, so I broke my rule of phone and journal staying out of the bed at night (a recently imposed rule that has changed my relationship for the better).
I hope your week was lovely. What were the highlights for you?
