Some weeks it feel like all that happens is feeding the family and attempting to clean. The 14 month old officially doesn’t play with toys. He just destroys. Papers on the end table – let’s shove them to the floor. Books in the bookshelf – I think they’d look better on the floor. We’ve also had a week of rough nights with him. Yesterday I decided I think he’s starting to get his next round of teeth. At least we had a little break after the molars made an appearance.
We celebrated my birthday, went to the small local water park, and spent some time with friends who are in the united states for their first time in 2 years this week. Homemade ice cream, a walk, and a Mexican and movie night were enjoyed with them. When you know you won’t be seeing someone for another couple years, you need to squeeze in all the time you can.
VBS is this week at our church. It will be our daughter’s first year old enough to attend. We’ll try it out Monday and then play the rest of the week by ear. 4 days up past her bed time might be a little scary.
In an attempt to keep things simple and get ahead (ha ha) on projects around the house and computer, I’m not going to cook this week. Salads and leftovers will be where it’s at.
- Creamy Tex Mex Quinoa Dippers
- Mexican Night with friends
- Leftovers/Salads etc x 5
- Menemen and Herb Bread (a Turkish recipe – Shaun and the kids weren’t fans but they enjoyed the bread)
- Spicy Thai Noodle Salad (Another new recipe that we all really enjoyed. Shaun liked the flavor and said it was better than he thought it would be)
- Salads/Leftovers/Bean Tostadas
- Pancakes (fresh and then leftovers)
- Yogurt (just made a new batch)
So, yeah. I completely bombed least week’s (easy) goals. I think the only one I actually accomplished was hanging out with our visiting friends. Hopefully this week I can do a little better.
- Go through coat closet, living room bookshelf, and remaining kitchen drawers.
- Read Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average and Do Work that Matters and Praying for Boys: Asking God for the Things They Need Most by Brooke McGlothlin. I just have to make this a priority. Maybe if I haven’t read during the day read at least a chapter of each before bed.
