It’s (finally) beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

I hope all had a lovely weekend!  Mine was pretty good!  Laid back just the way I like it.  It was just me and little A all weekend which is always nice.  Aidan is a total homebody like I am so we were both content to hang around the house all weekend just enjoying the peace and quiet.  We did get out for a bit on Saturday for some Christmas shopping but after three stores we both decided that being in traffic and standing lines was not how we wanted to spend the day.

I never shared his school picture did I?  He is so beautiful.

I must mention that the reason I hadn’t shared it yet was because I had to reorder them.  In the first set he had blue marker on his nose. WHAT? Yes…he did. Smile  I thought “Ummmm, excuse me but how did that get past his teacher, the photographer and the editor yet it was the first thing I saw?!?!”  I don’t know…but thank goodness for Photoshop.

I haven’t done an excellent job of food documentary.  I have had this for breakfast the last several mornings.

Except this morning I had a banana, some almonds and half a boiled egg in addition.  I didn’t eat dinner last night and woke up famished.  I didn’t eat dinner last night? No, I was so exhausted by the end of the day and my head was pounding.  It was all I could do just to make sandwiches and slice up oranges for my boys.  I found myself in bed by 7pm giving half hearted directions to shower, brush your teeth, stop fighting, pick up ya’ll’s toys…..I’m not exactly sure why I was so tired.  It had been a go-go-go kind of day though so I supposed my battery just died.

Yesterday

After doing Level 2 of 30 day Shred, I cleaned up quickly and ran some errands.  When I got back home I ate some tuna salad I had prepped that morning.

This was two cans of tuna, 2 tbsp. light mayo, homemade relish (just a pickle crushed up in my food processor), a squeeze of mustard, and some pepper.

When I got home from more errands yesterday afternoon I was super hungry and ate an apple, a few handfuls of almonds and a bag of 100 calorie popcorn.  I suppose that was another reason I wasn’t super hungry at dinner.  I made up for it this morning though!

It took me 2 hours to get my house cleaned up this morning.  What am I talking about? This is every morning.  Is it just me or does anyone else’s home explode between the time their children get up & when they leave for school?  I am not kidding….I go to bed, the house is tidy, I wake up, the house is tidy….three hours later I have to go through each and every room, picking up clothes, toys, wiping down sinks and toilets, two loads of laundry everyday.  I don’t know how two little people can make such huge messes.  It’s chaos chaos, we leave and then I return home to the aftermath and think  “What the heck happened in here?” The kitchen alone takes an hour….I am so glad I don’t have a “real” job.  I’d go crazy.

I didn’t feel like doing 30 Day Shred again today. I really wanted to go for a run.  The fact that it was literally freezing this morning made me cringe just thinking about it.

But the thought of doing 50 squat thrusts made me cringe even more…..So I bundled up and went for it.

About a mile into my run, the gloves and jacket come off.  Lesson #1 of running in cold weather, you won’t be cold for long.

When I got back I noticed my plants looked down right pitiful!

It’s so sad because they THRIVED in the 110 degree heat this summer.  I hope they don’t completely perish.

I trimmed them up and gave them some water so hopefully they’ll perk up as the weather begins to warm up.

Anywhoooo….my huge breakfast is finally wearing off and I need to find something for lunch!

Before I go I’ll leave you with some pictures of cute animals and some inspiration to get ya booty movin!
