AAK- I wish I was canning and baking! That sounds yummy.
I am exhausted right now:
*Husband cooked breakfast!
*Tidied up a little
*Took DD2 to therapy
*Took badbordercollie for a really slow mile long walk. I was going crazy not being able to walk at all. My ankle did hurt at the end of it. So probably no more of that (maybe rollerblades? Scooter? Wish I could skateboard!)
*Did stretches for my Achilles
*Husband, friend and I went and looked at apartments for her
*Stopped in and bought some shoes I had my eye on (I had 30 dollar "coupon" to the store)
*Came home and rallied DD2 and DD1 (son was at a friend's) and we all went with friends to the local jazz festival
*Listened to jazz and blues, kids ran in the fountain, we drank beer/wine and chatted
*Came home and dropped the kids off with son. They watched a movie
*Husband, friend and I went to a local bar. I was done drinking but had a water and had fun playing giant jenga!
*Came home and zonked out. We were not out late
I slept in this morning so it's after 9, now, but I am hoping to finally get in some grocery shopping. I literally haven't cooked more than easy easy stuff in a couple weeks. I need to prepare for the girls going back to school and need to get things for them to take in their lunch boxes. I'm wondering if I will go to Costco. I also need to sit and plan on my son's homeschool month (I usually went week by week last year. I need more planning, though). I highly doubt we will be ready to start lessons on Tuesday. He has a book club one day and a teen not back to school picnic on another day. His math and L/A curriculum will probably be here, but hes not slated to start science, history or German until next week. It will be good to ease into things.
Married, part time work from home mom to DS (13 and homeschooling), DD1 (11) and DD2 (9) and a giant dopey newfoundland, a crazy border collie mix, 3 black cats and a cute rat.
