#1 Woke up to a fresh couple inches of snow:
Which made my earlier procrastination of putting away the winter stuff totally justified! Snow pants by the door is right where we needed them this morning. (Self, you are welcome!)
#2 I've been really struggling to get back into any sort of normal routine since... Mexico...and then being sick... and then the road trip. My internal clock is totally messed up, I keep waking up ALL NIGHT. It is the worst.
#3 I finally got in a good workout, today. I've really only managed a handful since Mexico (curse you, Mexico!). I hate how quickly I can fall out of a routine that I put some many months into creating. I have to keep reminding myself that this hump (of self sabotage, masked as "justifiable exhaustion" or "urgent paperwork filing") is short lived and I have to just "fake it till I make it" and in a week I'll be back on top of things.
#4 I did this today:
Yep, I tore a million pieces of decorative tape to tape up an old Easter project of Kid's to the window (See #3). I finally snapped out of it, was able to call a spade a spade, and forced myself on the treadmill (also, See #3). So... success on the sabotage front. Plus, bonus, I know have a trifecta of holiday decorations up all at once.
#5 At the dentist today, I found out that Baby will have a gap between her adult front teeth. I figured Baby's fans would want to know this urgent dental update. She is all set to be the next Lauren Hutton. Phew.
#6 Tonight at bedtime, Baby was relating something to Mr F & I and said:
"That's just because I hypermelonated because I was crying." We didn't correct her. We're on the losing end with funny kid mispronunciations and we'll miss them when they are gone.
#7 I'm reading August: Osage County by Tracy Letts. I've laughed pretty hard. I'll be interested to see the movie, now. Although Mr F hates Dermot Mulroney more than he hates Jessica Fletcher...
#8 I made this soup for dinner. With these rolls. I make the rolls in the mixer with a dough hook. After I divide the dough into rolls I leave 8 out for dinner to rise & pop the rest in the freezer. These are the girls' absolute favorite rolls. They're good.
#9 Oh, also, I obsessed A LOT today about why the parent at school I talked to about carpooling has not responded to my return email. (P.S. they probably hate me/think I'm crazy, etc... right?!?)
