The good thing about this Monday is that it’s another Monday closer to getting this baby out! Woop. Anyways, I had a hard time remembering what the hell I’ve been up to the last few days, but here’s what I’ve come up with: Thursday: I ran a ton of errands. Boring. Had my weekly doctor appointment, went to Ikea for some frames, got my rings cleaned, picked up some goodies at the farmer’s market, then paint at Home Depot. Not surprisingly these days, it left me completely exhausted so I’m thinking there were about a half dozen naps taken that day. Same goes for Reggie. Friday: I did something in the morning, but can’t remember what. Then decided to go to the mall to get my cardio in by walking around and managed to get some great steals at Target before it closes. I also swung by starbucks and treated myself to a frappuccino (something I haven’t had in about 13 years!) It was really good, especially enjoyed on the sunny patio with the pups. Tyler put some movie posters in the Ikea frames I bought. These- and NFL memorabilia- are the decor in our basement/movie room. Oh, and Tyler made chicken parm for dinner and it was SOOO GOOD and I LOVE IT and I LOVE HIM FOR MAKING IT. yummmm. Saturday: I woke up early and whipped up a carrot cake smoothie (recipe can be found here. I modified a bit based on what I had available) It was seriously good and tasted just like carrot cake. And….it was healthy! It’s a great solution when you’re craving a slice of actual carrot cake, but don’t have the time or desire to bake. We then had our last childbirth class and this session focused on infant care. And yes, I’m still convinced I’m going to break this baby and freak out when he cries and not know how to properly swaddle and basically ruin his life. Ugh. Tyler had woken up sick, so I felt slightly guilty for sending him to the store mid-class to get me beef jerky and a protein bar. But I’m growing a human so I win. After class, we put a serious dent in our wallets at Costco then came home to gobble up some pizza from a new-to-us local place…that turned out to be not so great. HEY- you eat whatever’s in front of you when you’re hangry. Sunday: Holy moly were we busy. Tyler did SO much around the house- lots of painting and mudding and cleaning and more cleaning and more cleaning. I managed to get all the laundry done, organize more stuff in the baby’s room, and pick up most all of the last items we need for said baby. PS: Walmart is a clusterfuck on Sundays. PPS: There’s a Dairy Queen near our house that has a drive-thru. How did I not know this? The dogs lucked out for two reasons: 1) The weather was sunny and DRY, and 2) I was feeling good, so I took them to the park. They loved it. You know how I could tell they loved it? They crapped 4 times and slept like dead animals for the rest of the evening. So that’s our weekend in a nutshell. Honorable mentions:
- I am working out again! Still super modified, but my back has finally started to feel better and I can actually move! (Hips are now sore 24/7 and lots of ligament pain on my right side, but WAY more manageable. I have all my napping and chillin’ out maxin, just relaxin’ all cool to thank for that) Edited to add: I am still on short term disability, and I have that to thank for my improved condition. I have been able to get out of the house for errands, but that doesn’t come without discomfort and a lot of shifting/stopping/resting to accommodate my situation. I just don’t want anyone thinking I’m trying to take advantage of the time off!
- I finished season 3 of Scandal and will now be forcing Tyler to download season 4 because I need to be as current as possible. We started to watch Bloodline on Saturday, but I don’t think it’s going to be a hit with Tyler. I might watch it though since I have so much freaking time on my hands.
- We ordered our pizza on Saturday via Skip The Dishes. It was our first time using the service, and it was pretty good to get GPS updates on where our driver was with our food!
Ok, I think it’s time for a nap now. How was your weekend?
