So I am playing catch up in this post!!! This is what happens when life catches up to me & time for turning the computer on becomes a memory…lol! So here goes! :
Day #5 : My only goals were to :
#1. CLEAN! I really just wanted to sweep, mop, and do some laundry.
#2. Take a good nap!
#1. laundry : DOUBLE CHECK! (I did TWO WHOLE LOADS! From start to finish! That is rare! Nothing left in the dryer!!!)
#1 b. Sweep : FAIL
#1 c. Mop : DOUBLE FAIL!! (Oooooh NO!)
#2. Take a good nap : DING DING DING!!!! This was my proudest accomplistment today, because Thursdays are long nights for me when I have to go work at the bar until 3:30 am. I really need that nap!
Work was super slow that night, the students are not quite back in town for the spring semester yet. Tips were pretty poor too. THANKS GUYS! Oh well, maybe next Thursday? Alex was pretty cute today, speed army crawling all over the apartment as close to me as my own shadow. He wore himself out and took a pretty good nap for me too – YAY! As far as my resolutions went – the first were CHECKS! I make dinner dinner before work – so it is always ready by 6:30 pm, hubby ALWAYS has the kids in bed by 8 so he can get back to writing his dissertation. As far as my 10 pm bedtime? Doesn’t happen on bar nights!
Day # 6 : TGIF!!!
I love sleeping in on Fridays. If it is possible! I love my hubby sooo much when he very quietly gets our daughter ready for daycare and drops her off on these mornings. Alex woke me up pretty early (as usual, my little alarm clock) but he did a good job of falling back asleep – thanks buddy!!! I did get one? load of laundry finished. Maybe 2. I can’t remember! Oh I think that I did 3 because I washed up a bunch of blankets and towels, those are easy loads.
You want to know the best part about my Friday?? This was the FIRST Friday in a very long time that I did NOT have to go into work for the evening! It was pretty nice to spend the whole afternoon & evening with the kids – we drove around, met Grandma (mom) at the mall. Mom spoiled Lena and picked up some cute light-up shoes for her. Lena spent the rest of the evening slamming her shoes on the ground so they would light up to show us back at the apartment. MOOOO_OOOM!
I made a nice dinner of……hmm, chicken sautee pasta olio. Kinds were in bed before 9 (so…. half check : half fail?) Hubs & I stayed up late watching tv so I was NOT in bed by 10, but it sure was nice to spend the evening home with him!
Day # 7 : SUPER SATURDAY!
I like Saturday mornings. I wake up early & take care of my baby boy before quietly getting ready to go into work early. The most special part about this morning? Hubs woke up with me! Not only did he put the hot water on for some deeelicious tea; he whipped up some eggs & toast for me too!! This is a VERY RARE SUPER SATURDAY MORNING! Can you tell that I liked it? Hahaha!
Work was uneventful, I rushed home to spend an hour with them in the afternoon before everyone went to lie down for a good afternoon nap. (Yep…..had to go work in the bar that night.) The nap was nice & longish, and upon waking we all sat around the tv and watched part of Hell Boy until I got up to get ready for working at the bar.
It was a slow bar night – but tips were rolling in! And the best part was working with a super friend. (So…this truly was a Super Saturday!) I did diddly-squat on my crocheting at work, but I did browse TWO V S catalogs (and promptly pitch since I’m broke after the holidays), write an entry post from my phone (Day #4 I think?, lol), AND played with mini Tinker Bell playing cards…..yay! (and No, Lena didn’t know I had those) In the end we made almost as much in tips as we did Thursday night, and Thursdays are usually the highest tipping night. Awesome for us!
In all fairness for not crocheting – I still have blisters on my palms from New Years Eve when I opened 1000 + champange bottles, and I also poked my index finger and it has some inflammation. Hopefully in a few days everything will be all better for the crocheting bit. Wish me luck!
Now that I have caught up to :
DAY # 8!!!!! : SASQUATCH SUNDAY!!!
Sasquatch Sunday? I don’t know why I wrote that, BUT Sasquatch is FUN word to say! Sas-quatch! Sas-quatch! What do you got? I found a Sasquatch behind the parking lot . . . . (kids rhymes anyone?) Mmmm, yes, so I also make up my own lyrics. Its more fun that way when I don’t know the real words to any songs, lol! I will have to share some of my made up lyricals with you sometime. But be prepared, they are usually more for the over 18 age group. Hilarious for most adults tho!
So my goals for today are :
#1. CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN SOME MORE! (laundry, sweeping that I didn’t do on Thursday, cleaning the kids rooms, and finding some space on my desk top, I’m lucky I can type blindly on my keyboard……)
#2. Take a walk! Being part of the Biggest Loser Contest – I really should be getting more exercise than I have. Shame on me! I promise to do better this week, and I WILL walk today. I don’t know where, or how far, or how long, but I will walk. Somehow, someway, somewhere, somewhen. Somewhen? I wonder if that is a real word…..
#3. Whip up some delicious potato soup for dinner. Lena Bean helped me make some a week and a half ago, and I have about 10 lbs of potatoes in my refrigerator that I ought to use up. And soup is easy to freeze for easy dinners later on in the week.
*winky winky wink*
PLUS, I need to follow my NY’s resolutions. Let you know how that goes later on! Happy catching Sasquatches today!
