Just a normal Tuesday here
work, running, hanging out with my husband and the kittens. BUT there are some cool people from Orlando coming into town very soon!
I'm sitting at my desk on my morning plan time on the phone with DVC MS! We're extending our Marathon Weekend by one night. We're leaving directly after school and flying in one night early!
A great way to start the day!
Typical day here - work, home for a snack and to feed my four furbabies, and then off to advanced bellydance class (which is the highlight of my week).
Definitely a great way!! How's school so far?
I have quite a bit to do today, so I'm trying to get motivated. This always happens right before school starts; it's as if I lost a week somewhere.
Doing some grocery shopping and lunch at Friday's. Got house guests coming in tomorrow for a few days.
This is my last beach day before school starts so my plans are to enjoy it for as long as the weather lets me today. Then it's time to pack up and head home to get a head start before the first teacher day on Monday.
Oh, and today is the day we can do online checkin for OKW!!!
Morning all...I'm sitting here at work trying to decide what I want to get done next....counting down the days until we get to WDW.....17 to go !!!!
Good morning all!! It's a beautiful day here in NH!! I was invited to meet a few friends/coworkers at a local eatery for lunch today. We are all starting back for another school year on Monday so we are getting together before hand to celebrate the end of the summer.
It will be great to see everyone.
I hope everyone had a great day!!!
Today is the first day for the freshmen. Just getting in the grove of school! Nikki when do you start?
Was up waaaay too early (0430) and couldn't fall back to sleep. Did my exercise and then went to the commissary. Gee, how I hate unpacking groceries. Tried a new Lean Cuisine for lunch: Chicken Makhani, which is an Indian-food type dish. It was deeee-lish. Trying to stay commited to dieting in advance of the knee replacement surgeries that I need. Lost 5 lbs this month so far. Just doing what I know is effective: less food, more exercise, and tracking on a computer (My Daily Plate) every single morsel that I cram into my pie-hole! LOL
We leave the same day!
Today I took ds to the mall to play on their super squishy play stuff since the weather around here hasn't been good for playgrounds! Initially I was just doing it to get out of the house but while we were on our way I remembered a coupon for free vs undies that was in my purse, and a $5 Panera gc dh had given me (he got it free) last week! At the mall I remembered an old Aveda's gift card in my wallet and I had remembered to bring some pricey hair clips in need of repairs ( can only get them fixed at one mall in town and it's not one we visit much anymore).
Ds is normally a VERY picky eat, but today after getting all my other stuff done he happily ate his entire Panera grilled cheese and yogurt!
While we were eating i got a call from a recruiter about my resume... Unfortunately it aaas just to get a new copy since they couldn't open the file I'd submitted, but it was thru linked in, so I think they could see most of the key info anyway, so I'm hoping they're interested in interviewing me!
So Monday and tuesday were both really good, here's hoping the Trend continues!
Today was the kids first day of school .. so got up, got ready, got kids lunches packed up and off to work I went.
To then text my DH several times to make sure kids had everything ... even though I was the one who packed most of it up ;-) (He is able to work mornings at home and gets the kids off to school before heading in to work)
Happy first day of school!
I had this the other day and loved it! My favorite is still the mushroom ravioli.
Not for another two weeks still. I am able to start working on my classroom next week, but staff isn't in until the very beginning of September. I'm getting antsy!
How was the kids' first day back?
School's ok so far, Nikki! Thanks for asking! We've had kids for almost a week now and getting everyone into the routine is tough. Both at school and at home.
We all need to learn to go to bed a little earlier and move faster in the morning.
I also need to learn the importance of getting EVERYTHING I need at the grocery store on the weekend b/c if there's one thing I hate doing during the week is having to stop at the grocery store on the way home b/c I forgot something!
They had a good day. Both came home starving ... and I made sure to pack a lot of lunch and snacks... I think they are both growing as I type! ACK!
DD has a field trip on Thursday... Already! Wow!
Here is to a wonderful year for everyone!
Welcome to the Grind!!!
Glad you guys can use our little bit of craziness!! LOL
But I have to say for the most part your lists are way more impressive than ours!
we do laundry and dishes, y'all get to go to cubs games and stuff. So not fair!!
My final horseback riding lesson for the summer session I joined was this evening. I ended on a great note was able to tack the horse completely on my own, get a horse to trot on my own and stay trotting! My husband said I looked like I knew what I was doing, yay!
