Happy Friday, everyone! I wanted to start this post by thanking all of you who commented on my “junk” food dilemma from yesterday’s post. All the comments truly meant a lot to me and went a long way towards re-building my confidence that I do indeed feed my child well and what the teacher thinks just doesn’t matter. After all, she doesn’t see what he eats at home, right? So, THANK YOU for taking the time to voice your opinion on the matter!!
I have to admit to a mini melt down before leaving the house this morning. It was one of those days where the kids were at each other, the cat was howling to go out; I was trying to pack lunches/make breakfasts/load the dishwasher all at once. Clearly, not activities that a non morning person should attempt. On top of all this I’m calling out DS’s spelling words and he’s deliberately spelling everything wrong. Example: DS, how do you spell “always”? DS “Alzlvjowshtg”. Are you kidding me? Melt down time. Once I had my rant, ate my scrumptious bowl of oats, I was calm enough to proceed again….and he spelled all 10 correct. Imagine that. The lesson here? Do not try to do 100 things at once when you KNOW you are not a morning person. And eat your oats….they calm you down! :D

I rescued a grilled chicken breast from last night’s Mexican chicken bake and paired it up with green beans and a scoop of Manon’s raw sunflower seed pate. The fact that I forgot a knife didn’t not dissuade me. I simply ate it with my hands like a caveman. Luckily my cubicle is in the corner!!
Tonight was pizza night at our house. I had bought some Pillsbury pizza crust to try and it was passable. Definitely good in a pinch! I made one big pizza and used the second can to make mini pizza’s. I topped mine with some pizza sauce, goat’s cheese and basil. One pizza had some deli turkey on it, too;
I made some of Manon’s raw chocolate pudding for dessert;
Yabba, yabba! This stuff is GREAT! After clean up was done DD and I made a trip out to the mall. We haven’t been in a long while so it was time. We went into Old Navy because they have all their winter coats 50% off and I wanted to check it out. I didn’t find anything that caught my eye, but DD found one that she fell in love with. She picked a scarf to go with it, too;
Then I used my 25% off coupon to buy her a book to use for her book report that’s due later this month. After much window shopping we popped into William’s Pub for some latte’s. I also had a coupon for a free specialty drink so it was cheap-o. DD wrestled with a Rubix cube while we waited for our order;
LOL! I still owe you guys a good photo of my new spec’s!! I’m currently parked on the couch in my pj’s chugging back some water. DS has an 11am game tomorrow, but there’s not much else on the agenda. I’m looking forward to relaxing a bit!
Candy confession time…
Bye for now!!
