so we're back from the big T. it was a nice visit. it was an unwanted & unexpected, yet tolerable overnight stay in denver on the way home. but, we were thrilled to be back. i havent had time to slow down from traveling yet though. here's approximately what i've been through in the past few days:
we finally made it back home on thursday afternoon.
it was time to do laundry and make a shopping list.
GO TO BED EARLY.
asleep by 10pm. (a new record for early holly* bedtime i believe.)
factory installed, toddler alarm clock buzzes at me at 7:30 am.
commence AM routine.
procede to costco.
drive over "the hill" (yes, that hill) to pick up class materials for sunday's classes.
hit the park.
start precutting materials for class kits.
visit MIL & FIL.
take child to dinner with FIL.
SLEEP! (out by 10:30 this time around)
apply for hambly DT. (fingers crossed!!!)
touch base with SIL about suprise bday party for MIL to go down on sunday.
make shopping list.
hit the park.
grocery store visit.
pick up tart at MIL's favorite bakery.
make birthday pie.
SIL stops by.
decide we need to go to target and have burittos.
internal alarm clock wont let me sleep past 8am.
take quick shower and throw clothes on.
wake up child for "breakfast".
set out MIL's "day #1 of her bday week breakfast/dessert fruit tart"
really get dressed and head out the door for classes.
teach classes from 11am to 4pm.
immediately prepare dinner.
mashed potatoes (with black truffle oil), corn on the cob, and salad (mixed greens, thinly sliced apples, walnuts, blue cheese, and a holly* citrus vinagerette. aka. me throwing shit that taste good in a salad dressing container thing and forcing it on others. it turned out good...)
FIL grilled steaks.
let SIL do 1st load of dinner dishes.
lay lifelessly on the couch.
put said child to sleep.
finish a quick LO for an upcoming class.
now, toss in the antics and alterior motives of a toddler and there you have it. tomorrow i have a playdate, a need to drop off some stuff at the SB store, and something else that i've already forgotten. i wish husband would return home. i seem to slow down a whole lot when he's around. lazy bastard...
anywho, photos will be updated soon. projects will be updated soon. i might be a sane person soon, but dont count on any of it...
