Happy Monday, February 19th

This past weekend was pretty great.  It ended with some anxiety last night, but that’s not abnormal.  I would say that except for that, I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Saturday I did a bunch of chores (and so did the kids), we went to meals in the dining hall which were amazing, and went on a long family hike.  It was a beautiful, warm day.  In fact, it almost got too warm in the sun!  It made me want to make it a regular thing again!

Karis had time with her daddy playing Minecraft on the Wii.

I also did some food prep.  Not a ton, but enough.  Veggie and fruit tray, bagged salad (red leaf lettuce and spinach), and breakfast cookies.  I also made homemade yogurt last week and it’s in the fridge.

Yesterday we went to church, went to lunch at an amazing Chinese restaurant, went to a party supply store to buy plates and napkins for my friend’s baby shower, went to counseling (and Robert ran some errands while we were in counseling), came home and cleaned up the house a bit, and had friends over to play games.  I only have one pic of Sunday because I’m trying to be more “in the moment” with my family and friends.  But obviously as seen on our Saturday, I still want some pics for memories!  This is what I found for the baby shower.


Today we are doing nothing.  It’s so nice.  The kids don’t have school because of President’s Day.  Robert is off.

Levi made a paper version of his Skylanders game, which is super cute.  He already played it and “beat it.”


Next we will do a little bit of cleaning, though it won’t take long because we don’t have much to do.  I imagine some game playing will happen.  Also, I plan to write up my Instant Pot Carnitas recipe (so good).  I will also do a little more food prep for the week.

This week is going to be pretty busy.  Tomorrow I have AA at noon, I’ll be hanging out at the library by myself until 3:30 when the kids get out of school, then Karis has choir at 4.  At 8:00 tomorrow evening we are celebrating my friend by throwing her a baby shower.  It’s going to be a good day, but I’ll be tired by the end!  Which is a good thing.

Wednesday I am having coffee here with a friend, having Bible study here at noon, then cooking dinner for some new friends here at camp.  I’m making my carnitas, pinto beans, rice, and guacamole.

Thursday I will do some cleaning and organizing, then I will have AA that night.

Friday the hope is that I will be able to go grocery shopping.  But we have like an 80-90% chance of rain!  So we’ll see.

Speaking of, it’s supposed to rain ALL week starting tonight or tomorrow morning. I like rain, but that’s a bit much!

I hope you have had a good Monday and that you have a great week ahead!
