My get up and go seems to have come back. I actually have been reclaiming the house and keeping the kitchen clean. I figure as long as I have a clean kitchen and clean clothes, everything else will fall in line.
What have I been up to?
Well, Tuesday, I scrubbed the kitchen thoroughly and have actually maintained it all week! I also made a lot of bread and bread like items so that I could use up a gallon of milk that I got on clearance. I still have 2 dough balls, english muffins, and banana bread in the freezer. So score one for a high functioning week. Wednesday I woke up and blah blah blah hormones made it feel like I had morning sickness(no, there is not a baby in there, I promise) and it was a pretty wretched morning. I ended up taking a short 20 minute nap and was able to pull it together enough to be able to go over to a friends house so that the boys could swim. Thursday, woke up dizzy again, it passed and I went about my normal day-while maintaining the kitchen. And I tried baking potatoes in the crockpot!
To bake potatoes in a crockpot:
You will need:
Wash your potatoes, then poke them with a knife or fork. Then, rub them down with oil and salt, cover with foil, and put in your crockpot. Turn on high for 4-5. Mine were pretty big, so I let them go the full time and they were thoroughly cooked and everything that is delicious about a baked potato.
Friday, woke up dizzy again, shook it off, and my friend M and I did the house clean swap. I just wanted help with dusting and floors this time, so my house was done in an hour. Then, after she left, I found the floor in the office. Saturday, woke up dizzy, couldn't shake it of-kept coming and going all day, worked on our bedroom because it was one step away from a hoarders episode and then went over to a friends house so the boys could play. Then, when I got home, we went to see Despicable Me 2 and it was super cute and fun. I recommend it for the chicken alone. Chicken humor is so much funnier when you know chickens.
Then today, I got up at 4:43 and couldn't fall back asleep-so I tackled the boys desk-goodbye giant pile of paper, mowed the lawn, and did assorted yard work all completed by 8. I have been cleaning the coffee pot today too. It has a whang to it that is not very delicious to me. I took the boys out for breakie, went to target, came home and have been doing assorted chores all afternoon. And now, I am writing this rambling blog post.
So, if you've read this far you deserve a cookie. Go getcha one, okay?
