2 Weeks in the Life Of….

Yeah, I didn’t get to it last week so you get a double dose this week.

Things around here have been quite normal *knock on wood*. Everyone is in good health, all the bills have been paid with a teeny bit left over. I’m thankful.

On the other hand..

My housework and grocery shopping skills have been the pits.  I haven’t cooked much but no one is starving, we drank water all week, because I didn’t feel like going to the store for juice..H20 is good for you anyway. Everyone had clean clothes although they had to dig them out of the laundry basket because I didn’t get around to folding them. I took the week off…no it wasn’t planned but I was tired and didn’t feel like it.

I’ve had some pretty good times these past two weeks, maybe too much, and the snowball effect of it has been manifested in my lackluster homemaking skills..who knows and furthermore who cares.

March 10, the awesome young lady who hooked me up with the Mr. was having a birthday dinner. Being that I am forever indebted to her I got myself down to Benihana and had dinner with her.

 That following Saturday I headed out to help Niya and Candy Cake Co. sell cake truffle pops at the Atlanta St. Patrick’s Day parade.

Sunday the 13th Lil Man had his first recital. He did so well. I am very proud of him. Prior to heading out to the recital I had a moment thinking about how proud of him my mother would have been. I shed a few tears and we headed out. I know she was watching him.

 So in a nut shell that’s been my last two weeks. Whatchu been up to?

  1. Wow! You have had a very eventful life these past 2 weeks! Your family is beautiful. Picture perfect!

    As for me, I have been keeping myself busy. Starting training for my first 5k run. Went to my co-workers wedding last weekend it was fabulous and I ate way too much fried calamari. Played hooky with my hubby on Friday and spent the day as if we were 2 care-free teenagers. Then at night we meet friends for dinner, drinks and lots of laughs! Now I am in the process of planning my bff’s birthday dinner celebration that I am hosting next weekend! In other words….I am enjoying life!

  2. I love the family pic. I had a busy couple of weeks. My granny was in town, as was my boyfriend and my fav cousin Kelly. My sister turned 40 and she had a whole big shindig. It was good times. Now its back to work *sigh*

  3. Aww, what a great family pic.
    I totally feel you on the laundry. I’ve given up on it. I wash it and keep it clean, but all of it is in the bathtub. (our washer and dryer are in the spare bathroom) Whatever. I’m not ashamed. Too much to do, too little time.
