Anyway, last week was a fun one. We didn’t have much going on in terms of errands, etc. But we stayed busy with fun activities. We made our first trip to Cone World. Rebecca and I enjoyed the ice cream, but we could have done without her flip backwards over the bench on to the concrete…on her head :\ We were supposed to have a park playdate one day, but it got cancelled. So we went to the playground at the elementary school instead. We also went to the zoo. And we went to another second hand sale. Yesterday we all walked to the local bike shop and got new helmets for Rebecca and Abram. It’ll be fun to try putting them both in the bike trailer soon 🙂
The kitchen wasn’t quite as busy as some weeks. I made yogurt, sour cream, caesar dressing, croutons, pizza crust, bread and buns. Yesterday Rebecca and I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies. It’s been a while since we’ve baked any goodies. So that was a nice treat for her. I also finally finished one of Abram’s bibs.
This week will be a bit busier. Today is church. Monday is milk pick up. Tuesday is Kindermusik. Wednesday is Meijer and possibly another playdate (try last week’s park date again if the weather is nice). We might try to meet other friends at the park another day. Friday my SIL and nephew are coming to town. We’ll all go shopping at Hop Scotch, then out to lunch. And possibly go to the zoo for a bit in the afternoon, depending on the weather. Saturday we are having an energy audit done on the house.
I would like to do some baking this week. My freezer supply is getting pretty low. I want to make some type of breakfast baked good(s). I’m thinking muffins at least. I also want to make a new batch of soaked cereal, sour cream, yogurt and pesto. I want to make a batch of ice cream. I froze some of our cookie dough yesterday so I can make homemade cookie dough ice cream 🙂 That will probably keep me plenty busy.
My neverending updates – I finally got Diet Recovery and 180Degree Digestion. Tons of great info. But still plenty of stuff to figure out. I can’t say I had a great week for sure. I think that it is largely due to lack of sleep and stress. With Abram up so early I have lost almost all free time/relax time. And that is something I desparately need. So I’m struggling. Abram has figured out how to open the office door, so it’s hard to even keep him contained in the room with me now. And while we are in here he gets into EVERYTHING. I am trying to do my best to keep eating and keep pushing forward. But it’s tough. On a positive note, my weight has stayed the same for 2 weeks straight now. Maybe things are stabilizing a bit. Now I just have to figure out how to get my digestion back on track. I’m sure I’m still working on adjusting to no miralax. That takes a long time. And I know I don’t make the best food choices every day. I’m trying. I’m also really trying to give it all to God and not worry. He is in control, so there is no need for worry. Worry really accomplishes nothing. So what’s the point, right? Too bad my brain doesn’t understand that 😛
