It has been a grueling Saturday. I’ve only been back to work two weeks and already my life seems to have come unravelled. Thankfully, I was able to stay in bed until 8:30 this morning. That was my saving grace ! Since my feet hit the ground, I’ve been running in circles! Who needs exercise tapes or classes?! I did my own brand of cardio today. This is what I accomplished:
Closet cleaning and room rearranging for my kids
Drug store trip
Cooking and freezing for the week: spaghetti sauce, shrimp creole, gumbo, chili, and stuffed bell peppers
Cleaning the kitchen
Trimming bushes in the front yard
Laundry, laundry and more laundry – washing, hanging, folding
Haircuts for two kids and a husband
Badminton with my daughter
I’m exhausted. Tomorrow, I will make chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, then we will go to church. I will have to finish a creative project that is part of a gift for our priest at school. I will have ironing to do. What I’m really looking forward to is going to visit my son, who left for his fall college term on Friday. He wants us to see his newly decorated apartment! He’s gotten so independent. I’m not sure I like that!
The weekends just aren’t long enough. Hopefully, I will get into the swing of things, and keep up better throughout the week, so that Saturdays aren’t quite so rigorous.
Hoping for a relaxing and blessed Sunday – for you, too!
