We had two successes in the kitchen yesterday at Jena’s. First, I made pb cups a few different ways.
Both of the kids loved the pb cups, even the dark ones with the nibs (actually, I’m not sure Dylan tried the one with the nibs. I know Amelia liked it and asked for one before bed too—but the cacao may have been too energizing at that time of day!).
We went to see the Angel Oak, went to the playground, and Amelia and I played 95 games or so.
We decided we’re not going to do the Farm Tour event today–it’s not really what we thought it would be, so we’re looking for something else to do instead! I’m pretty low maintenance as a guest (I like to think that anyway, maybe Jena should weigh in on that!), so I don’t really care what we do. I’m not new to the kid thing–so I realize that food, naps, and other needs always come first, and I’m perfectly happy just tagging along. I am, however, used to spending a lot of time by myself, so this week is very different for me (not bad, just different…). I keep reminding myself how lucky I am to be able to bring my work with me (well, the online teaching, not the wellness coaching). I am a little bit behind, and like I said earlier in the week, I thought Jena would be working this week (she works at her daughter’s school till 1pm), so I have had less time to write productive posts and email people back who are not clients. I’ll be home on Monday afternoon though, and back on track! I also really want to get back on my workout/activity schedule (not that it was really rigid or anything, but before my stitches I was spending a lot of time being active).
I had to call the doctor and tell her I took my stitches out. Actually, I lied and said that a friend who is a nurse took them out. I’m not sure why I did that—but I just felt like they were going to yell at me or something. Anyway, I need to go back in three months to have the areas checked again. Really, the whole process was not so bad–but I’m seriously hoping they do not have to cut more of the area out…22 stitches is no joke!
One last thing…Will you join me and Maria and Lisa from Healthy Diaries on a 28-Day Sugar Free Challenge? They wrote a great post about what it is and why they’re doing it, and I’m definitely joining in! I hope you do too–let me know here, and stop over at their blog and let them know too!
What are your plans for the weekend?
Have you tested any winning recipes on any kids lately?
