By “Get Out” I obviously mean get outside. This time of year can be tricky. It warms up one day and than a blizzard the next. My best advice is to get outside and get moving on the days that you can. A bit of fresh air does my kids wonders!
I had a wonderful weekend. The “Ladies Night Out” on Friday night at my church was so much fun. I decorated for Saint Patrick’s Day, ate yummy food(everyone brought their favourite snack), and sat in a circle to play fun games. During one of the games I laughed so hard I peed a little in my pants. Guys if you are not laughing so hard that you a) cry b) pee a little(or a lot) or c) can’t breath then you are hanging out with the wrong people. This kind of laughing has healing powers in it. It is the best feeling. I love these ladies and seeing them every Thursday for Bible Study is great but getting out on a Friday night and letting our hair down is the best!
What is really making me happy right now is the fact that I am feeling healthy again! Seriously though, doing a happy dance right now! It was great to get back to the groove of things this week. Now let’s chat about the things that are making me Happy!
I have been really enjoying the book I am currently reading “Grace not Perfection” by Emily Ley. In it she discusses how she is not a great cook and is giving herself grace and permission to not be super Mom in the kitchen. This really resonated with me. I find at the end of the day I am completely exhausted and the thought of prepping and cooking a meal makes me want to run in my bedroom and hide under the covers. I have been beating myself up lately about not cooking the kids meat and potato type meals. Instead we have been eating quicker meals of toasted tuna sandwiches with tomato soup and chicken strips with 7 minute rice and steamed broccoli. I must have been voicing some of these concerns out loud because the other day Jordan made supper and it looked like it was for rabbits. He made salads with a side of carrots and celery. He proudly brought them out to the table and said “there you said they needed to eat better”. I chuckled to myself because it is so like me to complain and so like him to come along and “fix it”.
After a week off I am back to health and back to blogging! I would like to say we spent our March Break having loads of fun but it more looked like surviving. After feeling terrible for over a week with fevers that then tuned into a cold, I finally hauled myself to the clinic where I was diagnosed with strep throat.
Hi Guys! This week is March Break for the students in New Brunswick and so I have decided to take a Blogger Break this week. After everyone in our house being sick, it finally ended with me. Jordan works all week so I picked up this package of Buckley’s yesterday to get me through and I headed to bed early last night with the night time version. I plan on being in my pyjamas most of the week and letting the laundry pile up but if I am feeling any better you might see me on instagram. Have a fabulous break and I will see you back here next Monday March 13th.
We have had illness in the house again this week! This time with Miss Charlie and I. These high fevers are not fun. So I definately need to focus on the happy right now let’s get started:
Well, there you have it. The secret is out: I am not perfect. I know, shocking! Today I thought I would take a pause from the cute kids pics, the selfies, and the tidy decorated house pictures to own my crazy!
The weather on the weekend was ahhhhmazing! The sun was shining, the snow melting, spring was in the air. Don’t worry, I am not getting too comfortable. It is February winter is far from over. I opened almost all of our windows and aired our house out. Feeling the light breeze come through the window was so nice.
Is it March Break yet??? After a busy week last week of sickness, late nights, and doctors appointments it left me completely burned out this week. I spent Wednesday catching up on sleep and relaxing for the afternoon while Jordan took over household chores, meals, and baths. This week was a doozy for me and I am so thankful I have a great partner to lean on. Our kids are not in school but March Break is a nice break from all of their other activities and I am just really looking forward to a week of not needing to take them anywhere. We can be more spontaneous with what we do that week and their will definitely be a pyjama day. Now lets get happy even during a tough week there are things to get happy about.
