Our mornings are pretty flawless and I'm getting to work early. This year I have an added job that is both stressful and exciting. I hope to do an amazing job, become a critical part, and hopefully add more to my resume. More money would not make me sad. Being on a single mom budget takes a lot of balancing. I get paid once a month and so once that money is gone-it's gone, but let me not ramble.
I'm doing fairly well with packing my lunch. The key is packing it the night before. I often have to tell myself "get in there and just get it done". I find it hard to think about food when I've recently had supper. I try to pack it while I'm making supper.
So let's talk about supper. I'm a big fat failure in this category. I'm talking corndogs, chicken fries, and noodles type of failure. Basically, I'm rocking it at work so I'm white knuckling it at home.
By the time I make the commute home I'm mentally and physically exhausted. The sickness has hit. We've spent a few evenings outside enjoying the nice breeze. However, the warmth and humidity has come back full force and the tease I got hasn't made me too happy.
Our nightly routine is going pretty well. Jack still isn't the best sleeper. We have both good and bad nights. There are literally some nights where I go to sleep and he is just playing around me. I'll wake up a little while later and he will be fast asleep beside me.
I want to spend this week working on finding more energy after school, cooking more, and putting together more creative work attire. I am pretty basic but this year I've added in some colored pants and I want to work off that and mix things up.
Here are a few pictures from the past week.
|Jack stacked all the pillows he could find to reach the light, and well, he feel. He's fine and he didn't learn his lesson.|
