Last week was the first full week that I have gotten all the kids on my caseload back. That plus having a special education inservice/conference to discuss new regulations kicked my butt. I was exhausted and stayed home all weekend in PJs resting.
Also, I had a post-op follow-up last week and the doctor gave the OK to start exercising. She did caution me to take it easy and work up to it.
So, here I am ... with a "plan" about blogging, exercising and everything.
1. Mondays: I will try to write about my weekends and plans for the week.
2. Wednesdays: I will try to do a midweek analysis of what's working or not.
3. Fridays: Free for all. Whatever tickles my fancy. Random thoughts.
Of course, as with all plans, I will most likely deviate .... :)
Any way .......
Here's the first Monday Musings
1. Goals for the week:
- Walk at least 3 times
- Cook at least 3 times.
2. Operation Clean-out Pantry/Save Money.
Basically it is to cook using existing groceries in the pantry and freezer. I have the tendency to buy too many of one thing (like 3 boxes of Ritz crackers, 2 big packages of corn meal, 5 or 6 packets of taco seasonings), so hopefully Operation Clean-Out Pantry/Save Money will help me declutter, use up existing groceries, and save some money. I will buy fresh produce, meat, milk and stuff like that though. This "Operation" has me realize that I buy a lot of carbs! And my fridge has more "room" now. :)
3. Check out my purchases from Target.
How would you wear the red/white sweater?
And how would you wear the navy blue/green sweater??
I think I am going to wear black skinnies or leggings with this.
It will be kinda cool with skinny jeans ... but first ... I need to get skinny to fit into my pre-pregnancy skinny jeans.Feel free to throw in some more suggestions.
4. I love this sight.
Don't worry. We were parked when I took this picture.
5. "I love you a big whole celery bunch."
It started with me saying "I love you a bunch."Then, I threw in "I love you a big whole celery bunch."Then I also said "I love you very much."
And it evolved to "I love you more than a billion dollars much."
6. Is everyone as hooked on Downton Abbey like I am?
Episode 4 on Sunday night really hit close to home. I am thankful I am here with my little family. :)
Check back on Wednesday to see how I fare.
I believe I am back again ... Thank you for being patient.
