April showers are happening today which makes for a pretty depressing way to start off the week. Don’t forget though that April showers brings May flowers and guys it is almost MAY!!!! We are one month closer to tees and shorts. This week I will be putting away all of our hats, mitts, and winter coats and that is just so EXCITING. I had a pretty lame weekend because I worked most of it. I worked 11 hours on Saturday and over 12 hours on Sunday. Friday I spent the entire day cleaning. Our home has looked like a disaster zone for far too long. I am happy to say Jordan kept it clean over the weekend and did all of our laundry. #goodman
Oh my goodness this week was craziness! I did not post on Wednesday because I was so exhausted. I picked up a shift on Sunday and then worked my regular one on Monday and it just made the week fly by. I am here today though with a lot of HAPPY!
What a beautiful weekend and day today! We have been soaking up every bit of sun we can and having lots of fun. Jordan was away all day Saturday so it was just the kids and I home. I had a great day spending time with them.
It has been a great week! After a busy weekend of working I had a lot of house catch up to get done and I am happy to say for the most part it is done. I even made it to Costco yesterday to start my grocery shopping and plan to get an order from Superstore today. We will enter this weekend with a clean house with food in it. What more could a Mom ask for!? Before I start my weekend though I have to work this evening then I plan on spending the rest of the weekend lounging in my pj’s, haha. Now on to my happy from this week:
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!!!
