When I graduated and got married I just continued this schedule so that I could have a couple of days to get errands and house-cleaning done, as well as some time with Dominic after school.
And so it continued...Now my days "off" are full of juggling rides to school, little ones' activities, housework, shopping, naps...craziness! And lots of fun!
Today I had planned to spend a nice quiet day with very little activity, but as I sat on the couch in my sweats at 5:30am drinking my coffee and enjoying a half an hour of no kids, no nothing, the wheels in my head started turning...
After taking Dominic to school and completing our morning routine, which seems to take FOREVER, we headed out for Michael's and Safeway. Connor and Daddy started a wooden model on Sunday, in which they ran out of supplies for and I desperately needed some groceries.
We came home, had lunch, and began making cookies, which has become a pretty regular Tuesday activity. (I shouldn't be doing this while I'm dieting, but...oh well!) Since I started blogging and reading others' more often, I have been getting some pretty amazing recipe's.
Today we tried the Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Recipe from smashedpeasandcarrots.blogspot.com. (Is that how I link? I'm still learning this stuff!)
Connor found a few other wonderful treasures as well!
This was while Dominic had some computer time (until a friend called to see if he'd go swimming with him at 8:00 on a chilly Fall night! Teenagers are CRAZY!)
Thank you to my honey for corking it...
When I asked my hubby to take a picture of me with my glass of wine, well, he missed!
Ummm.... a little higher honey!
There! Maybe my day isn't over yet...
