If you like soy/ginger/wasabi…you will love these.
This is only the second time I have bought them….for a reason. They go down way too easy, lol :)
Oops! How did THAT get in my shopping cart?!?
I am not entirely sure about today.I got 10 hours of sleep last night and I could still sleep more.
I think I am coming down with something. Body aches, headache, sore throat, stuffy nose. So far it manifests itself more in the morning and at night, so maybe it will stay that way? A girl can hope.
And my omelet game is not as strong today. Still tasty. And maybe all the garlic I used will help with the above paragraph :P
K. Gotta go to church!!
Bless her. It is a good sign that she is talking about it through rather than keeping her fears bottled up.
I completely agree. I am glad she feels she can come to me with all that stuff. The thoughts and emotions are normal….what we do with them is what really matters.
I also had a talk with Aydan yesterday. He has been having a tough time going back and forth. That kid craves routine. And the struggle has been manifesting in tantrums.
I asked him about it and he said he doesn’t understand why we go back and forth every day. I took the time to explain exactly why we set it up the way we do. Even broke down the hours in the day. M-F - 7 hours at school 2 with dad. 2 with mom. Every other weekend. Etc.
He usually responds well to statistics…data…specific facts. He likes to know WHY and HOW. The conversation seemed to help. And over time…he will get used to the routine. Just takes time.
But yeah….kids. They are just little people :)
A tale of two breakfasts. And some other stuff…
The kids were so excited for the donuts this morning. “Really?!” “WHEN did you have time to go to Sweetwater’s?!” I mean….they are adorable :)
They have been asking for them since last week when they watched the documentary. I guess I can be a nice mom every once in a while ;)
I had the s’more’s donut. :P
And then a little later I needed some “real” food. I am uber proud of that omelet. I haven’t had much luck with them recently (since my culinary days), so this one…I am pleased with. And it was ridiculously delicious too. Steak, tomatoes, garlic, green onion, and goat cheese. Ugh.
Other than all that, we have just been relaxing around the house. Charly got a shower. Aydan and Peyten each got a bath. The girls are painting their nails green and white for the game later. We watched a couple movies. The kids got some computer time. Aydan found Lego Star Wars on the tablet….smh, lol.
And my tenants stopped by to pay rent and to renew their lease for another year. Now I am looking up ranges online…the oven broke at their house.
Oh, almost forgot this little tidbit. Charly was the first one up this morning. She came in my room and snuggled in next to me. And then she asked me “Mom, is it true that some kids are separated from their parents?” She had some worry in her voice. I said “Well, yes…that does happen sometimes. But, that isn’t something you have to worry about. You have two parents that love you very much” And she said “Why do they get separated?” And I explained “Sometimes if the parent isn’t able to be a good…fit parent, then the child is taken away”. She told me that she had a bad dream that she was taken away from me. It was dark in my room, but I could tell she had tears in her eyes.
I am sad that she has those fears and doubts that surface in her dreams. But, I am glad that I am there to comfort her and she has the evidence IRL that she has two parents that would do anything for her…despite their situation as a couple.
I think it is time for me to shower and get dressed. We still have time before flag football. Nap first? lol
Scenes from my day.
1. Internet was ridiculously shoddy at home, so I went to the coffee shop again. Decaf coffee and a cinnamon struesel muffin ;)
Headed to Kzoo, went to JCPenny, returned a dinosaur at Toys R Us
2. Grabbed some lunch and got more work done at GTPC. Beef Pot Pie. Not the best pot pie I have had. I didn’t even clean my plate. <—that says a lot.
3. The kids have been asking for Sweetwater’s…so I finally obliged ;) They don’t know yet…we will have them in the morning.
4. Appreciated the Westnedge hill that overlooks downtown Kalamazoo.
5. Appreciated the good
butt pair of jeans I bought.
6. Aydan and Charly getting along while playing on the computer.
7. Peyten doing her own thing :)
8. Food for small group. Paster Rey cooked. Chicken and Rice. And it was delicious. We also had Chocolate Cake cooked by Becky :)
Go home, Friday, you are drunk.
It is not a full moon or Friday the 13th. But, the universe seems to think it is…??
Just weird stuff happening….work/internet/computer related.
That is ok. Put out fires and still have time to make the day epic :)
I was aiming for six miles today.
And I got six miles today.
Now let’s make this Friday epic, shall we?
Moved to a coffee shop for the remainder of the day. Needed a little change of scenery.
…..and a latte…..and a bagel. :P
My mind has been a bit on overdrive lately. Thoughts…feelings…they are so exhausting. And honestly, nothing too major. I just can’t seem to shut it off lately. I need a little shut off from time to time ;)
It is raining right now. I guess that means cheer practice may be cancelled? Which would kind of be fine. Give me more of a chance to prepare for my meeting tonight. And catch up on a few other things. And actually have dinner at home.
If they have practice at 6, I pick them up at 5:30, and that doesn’t leave time for dinner at home. Drive thru is about the only option. Unless I get really creative…which I haven’t :P
I caught up on some Bazaar calls. And then got a few more….I guess that it is to be expected. There is usually quite a few last minute sign ups. So, this is the “busy” time for all that. I just wish everyone would email…so much easier. But, half the time people don’t use a computer…or don’t have a cell phone to text. It is odd, I tell ya lol ;)
That’s all I’ve got. Exciting :P
What’s the temp?
Right now my weather app is saying 57. So, somewhere around there.
Another quick two.
It is a bit chilly today. But, of course that made for a nice run.
Back to work. Kind of a busy day today.
Today was a productive one. Between house and work stuff, I done good :P
It was just nice to have an evening with the kids. No plans, just the regular stuff to get done. Awana started tonight, but we decided to pass this year. Between scouts and cheerleading and other church stuff, the calendar is already pretty full. Not sure we really need to add something else to it. I am all down for keeping busy and being well rounded. But, part of that is knowing when to lay low.
I need to go to the laundry mat so Charly has sheets to sleep on tonight.
And I need to go buy milk.
So….I guess that means I need to put on pants.
I don’t know why, but this cracks me up every time. It is 6 seconds long…just click on it.
