Recovering from the weekend

I kept sitting down to blog last week but I either fell asleep or had way too much to do. Saturday we celebrated Maya’s second birthday. So we were non-stop all week, preparing, cleaning, cooking, and random last minute things. Yesterday and today were spent recovering from the weekend and working to get back into  a routine. Lots of reading, tea, and convenience meals/food.

We got several of the usual Mondays jobs done, survived homeschooling, had movie night with mom, and even managed to do a few loads of laundry. The house is somewhat in order so that I can hopefully accomplish more tomorrow and fingers crossed, get some gardening in. I may even get to bed before midnight so that I can maybe get up at a decent time.

Let’s try this again

Grand plans today to be productive but things really didn’t go as planned. I had set my alarm to go off at 7 but I accidentally turned it off and woke up at 9. Whoops! The kids had gotten into Legos while I was asleep and they were now everywhere. The whole day felt off and we just couldn’t seem to accomplish much.

Here is what I was able to accomplish today:

  • changed and washed sheets
  • beds made
  • folded 3 loads of laundry-1 put away
  • ordered a gift for Maya’s birthday
  • made several phone calls and texts regarding plans and get togethers in the next few weeks
  • mt. wash-more has been partially sorted
  • garden watered- something dug up some of my potatoes, replanted them
  • worked on planning and organizing this week- so much to do
  • ran dishwasher twice

Some days I am able to get more things done then others. I just have to keep trying and hopefully things will get easier and my days will go a lot smoother. I am thankful for fresh starts and second chances.
