Well my week will not have as much detail as my day did, because I didn’t read ahead to see what I was supposed to post about today…ah, well, too much detail can be annoying!
Sunday – Woke up feeling kinda blah. Got the kids and myself ready for church (hubby got himself ready:-)), went to church, came home and ate lunch (who knows what), sent out invoices for all the ebay auctions that had ended, had a nice dinner (although I can’t even remember what it was….sad huh?), watched the 2nd half of Extreme Makeover Home Edition, did some last minute school reading with Munchkin.
Monday – Kids went to school, I finished up my Christmas shopping (for the immediate family, anyway…still don’t have everything for my mom and mother-in-law), decided to write a specific 30-minute schedule to follow at home with the hopes that it would keep me on task and prevent me from forgetting to do some things which tend to get lost in the pile of, I don’t know, STUFF to do. Didnt’ actually write it though. Picked up kids from school, did homework with them, ate dinner, etc.
Tuesday – Told myself I would really write the schedule and then didn’t, got two workout videos from the library (Bob Harper’s new ones), tried one and made it for 10 minutes before I dropped out sweating and feeling like I would die (seriously…10 minutes???? I’ve NEVER done THAT bad before!), packaged and shipped ebay, did typical housework stuff.
Wednesday – I woke up hardly able to walk from my whole TEN MINUTES of workout. I’m so ashamed of that. But felt good mentally, thinking I’d given my muscles a good workout. Finally got around to making the scheduled list and got really excited to start trying it out on Thursday. One big Christmas package arrived, so I wrapped the gifts and used the brown butcher packing paper to have some fun with the kids. Once I’d picked them up from school, I laid the paper out on the kitchen floor and we decorated the whole thing while listening to High School Musical songs. Munchkin LOVED it. We’ll use the paper for wrapping Christmas presents.
Thursday – I woke up still sore….nope, I’m not joking. I could walk just fine as long as there were no stairs, and no sitting or standing. lol. I started the day on schedule and was pumped, thinking I’d be able to make really good use of my new schedule. Went to the store to pick up a prescription, did some grocery shopping. Got a phone call from Munchkin at school saying she’d gotten hurt at recess. She had run into a kid head-on, and had a bloody nose and a hurt leg. The lady in the office said she hadn’t been limping previously, so I figured Munchkin was being dramatic. After getting her home to change out of her bloody clothes, however, I found that her leg was completely red and swollen, and my poor girl could hardly walk! Played nurse for the rest of the day, went to Parent Teacher Conference with the family.
Friday – I woke up almost not sore…yippee!! Munchkin however, still could not walk and all around her knee was still swollen, so we kept her home. Buddy Boy doesn’t go to school on Fridays, so we had both kids home. I made phone calls to arrange delivery of the school’s fundraiser chocolates to family. Made a doctor appointment for a flu shot, paid bills, you know, the usual. Also received another Christmas package and came THIS close to giving in and giving it to the kids early….I’m ridiculous sometimes.
Saturday – The day has just begun, but I’ll tell you the plans: Planning to go to Lowe’s to do their free project (assuming Munchkin feels good enough), deliver chocolates to mother-in-law’s, photograph and prepare more items for ebay, find out which sibling of hubby’s we’re supposed to buy Christmas for, and do some major cleaning.
There you have it! My week in a nutshell:-)
