My brain is all over the place right now. Between packing to go away later this week while trying to keep up with work, the blog, my son, and life, I’m struggling to think clearly or even sit down for more than two minutes! For this reason, today’s post is going to sound more like a random thinking out loud rather than a weekend recap.
1 – The cashier at Trader Joe’s gave me a lollipop as my praise for not only packing my own groceries (I always do though to help), but for fitting everything so nicely inside one reusable bag. I’m trying really hard to bring my reusable bags with me no matter where I do my food shopping. The new law mandates stores in Suffolk County to charge five cents per plastic bag. Since I live on the border of Nassau and Suffolk Counties, the whole bag situation is getting really confusing! I do like reusable bag life though, that is when I remember to bring them with me.
2 – I did some organizing in the house over the weekend! Anyone else feel the need to clean out and organize things that can totally wait, especially when you have 100 other things you should be doing instead? I don’t know why I always do this to myself. Anyway, here’s what I did…
- Cleaned out the kitchen junk drawer (!!)
- Organized the Kitchen Pantry
- Tore through four out of eight of my son’s dresser drawers PLUS my closet! I made three big bags of clothing and donated them immediately in those clothing drop bins.
3 – I had lunch at Panera two days in a row which was completely unplanned and totally random.
4 – Maybe I will run a 10K this spring. I always liked a good 10K and right now, that distance seems most appealing. Maybe the Aspire 10K again?
5 – Saturday afternoon we ended up at my parents’ house. I went out for a manicure/pedicure (plus hit the local boutiques in their town) while my son stayed at their house to play hockey outside.
We stayed for dinner. You know the pizza plus salad combination is always my favorite.
Her’s my dinner plate X two.
6 – I had my blog photo shoot Thursday afternoon and I’ve been busy going through the photo gallery! The photo shoot was so much fun and quite a learning experience. I definitely found my headshot, now it’s just a matter of selecting a few other images that I like from the mix.
7 – I spotted this on Facebook over the weekend and it totally made me laugh. Perhaps I need to order the shirt for my son to wear to school. It reminds me of my son’s seventh grade math teacher more than any of his other teachers actually. He was always moving my son’s seat, even trying to put him so far in the back of the room that he labeled it, Benji Island.
You know, like an isolated spot that was supposed to keep him from talking to anyone else in the room. Sometimes I threaten to send him to Benji Island too.
It’s relatively warm here right now in New York that I do think I can run outside again this morning! What a concept.
Have a great week!weekend randomness on the blog today! #weekend #10k #blog #photoshoot #pizza #panera Click To Tweet
Who else decides to clean out closets, drawers, and cabinets when they have a ton of other things they need to be doing?
Do you have a race on your calendar right now? Which one?
Best thing you ate over the weekend?
