It was a busy week. BestestHusband had another hectic work week. I worked Saturday again. The laundry is still taunting me from the spare bedroom. ("fold me... fold me..."). The fur tumbleweeds gathering in the corners are plotting to overthrow me. But I met Pioneer Woman! I got books autographed! I decided on a bathing suit! I used a crazy-long ToDo list and discovered that when I write things down, I have a witness to the fact that things do get done! (despite what the fur tumbleweeds might try to tell you...) I had a mommy play date at the playground. I had a mommy play date to see Pioneer Woman. I talked to a friend I haven't talked to in way too long. I shopped for the Easter Egg Hunt. I found an Easter Bunny for the Easter Egg Hunt. The weather has been warm with a touch of rain, and the crocuses are up. The daffodils are starting to show up, too. It was a good week.
I didn't go to the gym. I was fighting a cold, and was trying to take it a bit easier and sleep in. So my back is whining at me. My back whines when I don't work out. Or stretch. And sometimes it just whines at me for a week-or-so once a month because it feels like it. This week was a combination of all of those elements. I don't have much of a tolerance for whining...
So time to account for my past week:
Food waste: I ended up throwing out quite a bit of the fresh herbs I said I'd use last Sunday. They'd already gone bad. Throwing out egg yolks doesn't hurt my soul. Throwing out fresh basil and mint does. Well, I guess they weren't fresh, which is why I threw them out... Oh well. You get my point. I also threw out 3 roma tomatoes. Also sad. And foul. Remind me not to have rotten tomatoes thrown at me... Once again, BestestHusband came to the rescue and ate stuff I didn't want to. He's my food waste savior. There, I said it. We've got a lot of food in the fridge to start the week (including a large bowl of cold rice salad that I made to use up some ingredients) so this upcoming week will be a challenge. Anyone want a large bowl of Thai-themed rice salad? It would be greatly appreciated if I didn't make my family eat it again (and I can only eat so much in one sitting...)
|Veggies, cilantro, coconut milk... it's good, it's just a lot.|
Patience: What's there is there purely by the grace of God. He was gracious this week. I still managed to screw things up on Friday, despite His help. Friday was not pretty. I hope getting back to the gym will help. And maybe a 2 yr old who doesn't have extremely selective hearing. Or maybe a whine volume button would help. Both would be great.
M&M intake: We still have the plain M&Ms in the poopies jar. They're not a threat. I still have more than half a container of the chocolate-covered espresso beans. And yes, I'm proud of myself for that. Those things are insanely addictive.
How was your week?
