Another full weekend. This time thankfully I was not on my own, though we did a fair amount of ‘dividing & conquering’.
1- Trip to Flamingo Gardens (I took kids solo while Josh worked)
2- Lunch out @ local diner
3- 18 patient charts completed at local Starbucks (my shift of work time!)
4- A ball. (Benefit for the hospital where I work, so essentially a work event — of which there seem to be about 348723 in the next 2 months)
1- Long run (7.5 mi) from 6:45 AM – 8 AM in gorgeous cool weather (high 50s!!! This is our winter!)
2- MyGym with G — I hadn’t gone in forever. She was sooooo excited.
3- Piano & Panera with all 3 (Josh had some time to work / play guitar)
4- Made dinner – Fed and Fit recipe (cheesy chicken rice and broccoli casserole) + roasted carrots. Josh and I thought it was great. The kids were not big fans but said they would attempt it again tonight if smothered in ketchup (ew, but ok).
5- Completed 5 more charts. And now I am caught up! Whew, but ugh.
6- Cleaned up house & prepped lunches. Our nanny was out Weds – Fri of last week with what sounded a lot like flu. It was a struggle.
BUT! One side benefit of her absence is that we realized that taking all 3 kids in the morning is not all that difficult. And therefore after many years of G (nanny) helping us get out the door in the morning, I am shifting her hours later (and slightly reducing the #, but will keep $ the same). Now I will have more bandwidth in the evenings to help A&C with homework and piano. I am excited to see how this helps the flow of our evenings.
I am working hard (and taking proactive steps) to work on my mood issues. More on that in a future post (I think).
