After five years of every single second together this year has been such a change with Miss Charlie going to school. I now gets lot’s of one on one time with Mr Simon and less and less time with her. Next Fall she will be in school even longer until 3pm!!! I don’t know how I will deal. The past few weeks I could tell she needed more one on one time with me. So an afternoon last week I dropped Mr Simon off at my Mom’s house and her and I went to town together.
Let’s all raise a glass to online grocery shopping!!! Yes, I feel like such a “Modern Mom” now. I know that some of you in bigger cities and through the states have been enjoying this for awhile as I watched on in total envy. Finally the Superstore that is less than a 3 minute drive from my home got on board and I was so excited to try it out! First off let’s talk about what you can do with all the free time you have now that you just need to pick up your groceries instead of shopping for them in store. Going out to eat was number one on my list and we did that this week.
The week went by so quick I almost forgot to write this post thinking it was still only Thursday, haha. I had a fantastic week got a lot done and did a lot. I haven’t seem much of Jordan this week though so I am excited to spend some time with him this evening! Here are just 5 Things that made me happy this week:
I only work on Mondays during this week and then not again until Saturday so this is always my catch up week. I have been cleaning, doing laundry, and spending a little extra time with the kiddos. Doing all the mom things! I also made some time to get the brows waxed(it had been WAY too long), I am getting out with my girls tonight, and getting my hair cut tomorrow evening. I have four days to fit it all in! #MOMLIFE is a constant balance of trying to fit it all in and yet our brows start looking like Oscar the Grouch, our laundry makes piles taller than Mount Everest, and we finally realize “balance” is not a thing that is actually attainable.
My Sister and I took a day trip to Moncton on Saturday afternoon to celebrate her birthday. Moncton has a few shops and restaurants that Saint John does not. We also both use to live there for a couple of years so it is always nice to go back and visit. She worked until 1pm that day so we got on the road in the afternoon and did not come home infill the shops closed. We took this picture after we were finished shopping an on the road home.
This week flew by and I couldn’t be happier because I am off this weekend!!! My Sister had her Birthday this week and when I asked her where she wanted to eat she told me she wanted to go shopping in Moncton. So we are heading to Moncton for a little girls day trip on Saturday to celebrate her birthday and I can’t wait. Now on to more happy!!!
Alright confession time I have not been doing alot of reading this year! I have a pile of books I want to read and it is still one of my favorite ways to pass time I just have not had alot of time lately. When I do have a chance it is usually in the evening when I am too exhausted. Reading makes me happy though so my hope is that I can make more time for it now.
Happy Easter Monday!!! We actually celebrated our Easter on Friday. I worked this weekend on Saturday and Sunday and even had to stay a few hours late on Sunday. So, I am so glad we decided to celebrate early and I could fully be there. This year I kept the kids baskets pretty low key. They each got a pair of sneakers, a couple of small toys, colouring books, and a few treats.I found the baskets at Michaels for BOGO and I am excited to steal them back from the kids and use them in my kitchen. The kids loved their baskets and it reminded me that just making it special is enough for them. I also gave Jordan a few treats and he gave me $60 in cash, haha. I guess he forgot. Men it will always cost you more when you forget. Yes, we celebrate with gifts for one another on the holidays too. One day it will just be him and I here at home and we will still be giving each other presents…or cash left over from our wallets!
It has been a very busy last couple of weeks. Adjusting to mine and Jordan’s new schedules has not been easy. I was in great need of a break. I decided on Saturday to take that break and leave the country. Which basically means driving 2hrs to Calais, ME. I put the word out that I was going and before I knew it my car was full. We hit the road for a Mom Day out!
What a week over here! I have been non stop between work and kids for the past two weeks. This Mama needs a break. It is the weekend and I am about to get one! Saturday I am taking some much needed time and I can’t wait. Now on to more Happy!!!
