This week is weird and I kind of don’t like it.
RANDOM LIFE STUFF
D is gone, which sucks. I missed him the second we pulled away from the airport. My other half is missing. I need to get used to this though. He’s going to be traveling way more frequently in his new position.
Earlier, he messaged me a pic of a slide from his presentation. He knows I love stuff like that. His intelligence is a real turn on for me. Like, I literally become aroused when I see the stuff he’s working on and/or when I hear him discussing work related things.
All three of the other parents are going on work travel at some point this week, so I’m doing quite a bit of solo parenting. This isn’t a big deal really, because I love spending time with the kids, but it’s a lot of work doing everything on my own. Drop offs, pick ups, grocery shopping, supply shopping (Freya needs a white tee for day camp tomorrow for tie dye, for example), lunches, dinners, laundry, baths/showers, quality time…the list goes on and on. Being a mom is fucking exhausting. I do love my little chickens, though.
They make it easy on me though. They are so well behaved, and they get along so well. They’re the best. I’m lucky.
Last night, it was just me and Frey. We made a night of it. We had stuffed crust pepperoni pizza with flaming hot cheetos. Then we had sundaes and popcorn while we binge watched Girl Meets World. We got through 7 episodes. I promised her we would watch more tonight.
That was my cheat night. Now it’s back to clean eating, no booze, limited Diet Pepsi, and hardcore exercise. 3 months until go time, bitches.
My head really fucking hurts. I think it’s a combination of allergies and being at my limit for dealing with dumb ass people.
We were able to watch GoT concurrently last night (once D got to his hotel room) and I liked it a lot. D thought it was a bit boring, but they have a lot to set up for the new season. I want to say more, but spoilers. I’ll keep my mouth shut for now.
Today is Day 1 of the BB challenge. I had my Shakeology before I left the house this morning. Freya was laughing at me because of the face I was making. Shit is kinda nasty, but fuck it’s good for you. I added a banana, which helped the flavor. For lunch, I had a tasty, but very healthy salad, which was full of protein and veggies. (BTW I love how the calories for everything is listed at Bread Co!) Not sure what I’m doing for dinner yet. Maybe a taco salad. I promised the kids tacos tonight.
After dinner, I’m supposed to do my first Shift Shop workout, but part of me is considering doing 21 Day Fix (and supplementing with walk/runs) because SS isn’t really appealing to me. Ultimately, I joined the challenge for encouragement and accountability, so I don’t really think it matters if I do a different workout.
I’m planning on making an appointment with a dermatologist. I need help with my old ass skin. I want Tri Luma and a chemical peel.
My birthday is on Saturday. I have feelings about this. Some good, some bad. None worth getting into right now.
Reminder: make reservation!
As of Thursday evening, I’m on an extended staycation. Oh and D will be back on Thursday evening. He’s taking off on Friday so we can do birthday stuff.
I. CAN’T. FUCKING. WAIT.
You know what I’m also strangely excited about? Three weekends of adult D&D in a row!
AND…I got an email about a Warehouse pre-sale for the next Dave & Tim Riviera Maya show in January and I really, really want to go. Five days at an all-inclusive resort plus three nights of Dave & Tim shows on the beach. Um…where do I sign up? It’s pricey though. Still…looking into it. I can’t take this money with me when I die, after all. It happens to fall on a non-custody weekend too, which makes it all the more tempting.
As my friends Ann & Rob would say: MAKE STORIES!
