This Week The Plan

***Remember to enter my Easter box giveaway... time is running out***

The week in review:

Alright Ladies & Gents... I am officially better. Good God that was a complete nightmare, and at a certain point I actually started to forget how good normal feels. Let me tell you normal feels great. Even if every other part of your life is falling apart... being able to digest food is a big deal... so count your blessings. ;)

A lot of stuff is going down this week... I have my tailbone check up tomorrow. I'm curious what he'll say since I've been having some pain lately. Although this has gone on so long that I don't remember how much pain I had 6 weeks ago... maybe this is an improvement. We also all have EARLY morning dental appointments (7 freaking 30... if you know us you know it would actually be easier for us to stay up until then rather than get up then) that we are trying to squeeze in before we cancel our dental insurance.

RE: Insurance... that was actually not as simple to shut down as I had anticipated. I spent about 2 days on the phone last week talking with 100 people to get everything completely closed on those other two policies. (Hold Up: I just got 3 pieces of mail from them... so... maybe not)

I filed our taxes. Feds, Michigan, & North Carolina. They all owe us money. Aww yeah. Maybe we'll be able to get a fence (or at the very least eye hooks at the top of our doors)... so that I don't find Baby wandering outside on the sidewalk (unbeknownst to us) in her diaper. Don't worry she took Canine with her.

My mother and The Cougar are coming down at the end of the week for Kid's grandparents tea. I am SO happy about that. I'm happy that I'm going to see them but I'm also really glad Kid didn't have to be that kid with no one showing up to her event. Added bonus... we have a timely motivation to get the house in tip top shape.

Okay enough randomness, onto this week!

Baby is eating her oatmeal with a chopstick. This has bought me an unprecedented chunk of time... I might get through this all in one sitting.

Well for the 2nd week in a row most of my meals have gotten bumped. The girls ate mostly happy meals last week (when your parents can't cook for you or pay attention to you the least you deserve is a little plastic toy... am I right?!... don't answer that).

Monday - Ginger & Scallion Noodles w/ Shrimp

Tuesday - Quesadillas (new use of leftover rice & taco filling) w/ avocado & salsa

Wednesday - Orange & Honey glazed Salmon (recipe coming), potatoes & green beans

Thursday - Tomato & Meatball Soup, dill rolls

Friday - Pizza & Salad

Saturday - go out

Sunday - Beef Brisket w/ Potatoes & Carrots

Exercise & Diet
You know that whatever loss I managed through acting like a human funnel for a full week is gone right? Yeah it is.
So now that I feel rehydrated sufficiently I will commence my daily hour on the old treadmill. Hopefully I'll get some good news from the butt doctor on Tuesday and I'll be able to add back in my pilates. Until then I'll be kicking ass (ha ha) on my incline workout while I catch up on Millionaire Matchmaker.
I'm also back on the food journal. I'm sticking back to my 1800 limit and then I'll adjust from there next week.

Errands & Chores:
Unbelievably I'm almost done with my desk area. That is my top priority. I need to get that baby to 100% so I can stick with a new regime of daily management. I got rid of all our old outdated paperwork and filed everything else. I've still got bits of miscellaneous crap that does not have a good *home*... plus a lot of shit I'm sick of holding onto. I'm about to get ruthless on all those weird business cards and old checks!

Sunday - major house clean up (Mr F & I almost had a fist fight over *how to get things done*... you should have been there)

Monday - groceries, laundry

Tuesday - put away laundry (wipe that smirk off your damn face Mr F), clean off counters

Wednesday - vacuum, toy clean up

Thur- Mon = guests

The Cougar.

The Chopstick.

The Fist Fight.

Not sure which of those had me laughing the hardest...

Preppy Mama said...

I love checking in to see what you are up to, its my entertainment! The chopstick, what a great idea!! I might need to try that on my little one who is done with his plate before I can turn around. That baby is brilliant!!
Keep us posted on your check up I really had no idea that the tailbone took this long to heal. I'm just in awe of you!! Good Luck!!

Torey said...

I'm glad you're feeling better! I'm excited for Kid to have the Grandparent Tea! How fun is that! Please tell me that you'll take pictures, and share them with us!

I love that you and Mr. F had a near-fist fight over the cleaning. Are we going to get a YouTube reenactment? Cause that would rock.

Mrs Furious said...

Preppy Mama,

Yeah I never would have guessed this would take so long to heal either. When they said 3 months I thought that would be like the worst case scenario... I'll be interested to see how much more healed it is. I can deal with the pain if I know I'm not doing myself any damage.

Somehow in the heat of a fight Mr F never wants me to get out the camera ;)

Kiki said...

I thought for sure you'd get a video of a fist fight for us...Ken loves to "supervise" any cooking or work that I am doing...yeah we almost divorce over that every time. He's lucky he's cute.

So glad you get to have your mom and The Cougar (it doesn't feel right saying that) with you...

Can't wait to hear about the treading you get done, I am taking tonight off and then going to tread in the a.m...we'll see how that goes, morning workouts are not my thing...yet!!!

Good luck with the dentist, yikes!

Christy said...

Is it bad that we all thought the "fist fight" comment was funny?

I am really glad Kid has some grandparent's that are coming to her special day!

Good luck at your checkup!

Eva used to escape and wander the front yard.

It's a little less stressful when a dachshund does that than a toddler I think.

Tell your mother and "The Cougar" I say hello!

Mrs Furious said...

I will tell them you said hello!
