This Week's Ups & Downs

I found my glasses that I couldn't find last week! {HAPPY}
I absolutely LOVE being a mother!!!!! {HAPPY}
But ya know, sometimes you need a little break. And I am enjoying my break by spending time with the Hubs & time with my friends. But DANG IT, I miss my girls! {CRAPPY}
Every year for their Spring Break, Nonnie & Pappaw (aka: my parents) take the girls for the week. I know it's good for them & good for me to have the break so I can truly appreciate them & get a little refresher....but I miss them!
I have talked to them almost every day & let me tell ya, they are having A BLAST! {HAPPY}
They have babysat their FAV dog in Hot Springs, gone out to eat, worked out at the gym (okay...they played with toys while my parents worked out, but it's more fun for them to say they worked out), made Jello, made tambourines, played with "the boys", visited Granny, helped build chairs, & gone to the store & pre-shopped for their birthday gifts....I'm sure there's more, but that's all I can remember right this minute.
I LOVE Daylight Savings Time cause it stays lighter longer which means time outside after I get home from work!!!!! {HAPPY}
But it's been too flippin cold this week to enjoy it {CRAPPY}....well, until today!
It did take me till Tuesday to change my watch
& till Thursday to get the clock changed at work (short-person AND scared of heights problem). {CRAPPY} But at least it's done now.
Speaking of Tuesday, I got to meet with my Moms Bible Study Play Date Group & we had this for dinner
But most of our group was missing. {CRAPPY}
I got to have a Date Night In with one of my Hubs, Jessica, & her boyfriend {HAPPY}
I made some bread, salad, & my Crock-Post Spaghetti & they brought Brownies. Kolby refused to let me take a pic with his face in it (he's going to have to get over that mess!); but we were ALL amazed that Abby not only didn't bark at him much, she also stayed in his arms for a while.....ya see, this dog takes A LONG WHILE to warm up to folks.
I made Homemade Breakfast Pockets this week {HAPPY}
But epic fail, I left the WHOLE week's worth of breakfast in the Ziploc, laying & the counter, & I left for work {CRAPPY}
 I got to get some new coffee this week
I love this flavor! {HAPPY}
Thursday {HAPPY}
one. I got all dolled up (like skirt, taking off & completely reapplying make-up....big deal cause I'm a get ready in the morning & that's the way it is for the rest of the day kind of gal)
two. Hubs & I headed for Date Night Out (with errands in their of course)
three. We went to Bonefish Grill...I love me some Bang Bang Shrimp!
four. We saw that...pretty good movie with some really nice & vivid colors.
We were {HAPPY} to see these previews for movies to take the girls to
Today (Friday), I woke up in the most blah & down mood. I do not know what was wrong with me! {CRAPPY}
one. I am on Day 15 of the #6packMarch Challenge. That junk is workin cause it's getting tough!
two. Holy smokes, I've logged into My Fitness Pal for 215 Days in a row.
three. I had a post-op/follow up appointment with my cardiac surgeon today & I got a good report. Then I had lunch & ran some errands. The natural vitamin D & shopping for 3 of my FAV peeps in the under 5 age-group SURE lifted my spirits & brought me out of my funk {HAPPY} Good thing too or y'all wouldn't have gotten anything from me today at all.
How has your week been?

  1. That sushi looks SO good!
    I bet the girls will be so excited to see you when they get home. Enjoy some alone time with the hubs!

  2. Love this blog! You seem to be amazing mum! ;)

    Would you like to follow each other via GFC? ;) I've followed you ;)
    Greetings ;)

  3. I agree with ya on the daylight savings... I LOVE having more light outside!

  4. Sushi can make any crappy day a happy day! And daylight savings is killing my husband and I.
    You would think adults would be more adaptable, but I guess the older you get, less flexible and adaptable you become!

    Anyway, thank you so much for your sweet comment!!


  5. Like I said on Facebook mmm sushi. Yeah for hubby dates and movies!! :)
