Another Monday... This past week was CRAZY! I took Clay to the doctor for a cough on Wednesday and found out he had RSV AND an ear infection (his first one). We had no clue...he wasn't tugging at his ear, no fever, no fussiness. All I can say is I have been blessed with a kid who is still happy even when he's sick.
My mom and aunt came to visit this past weekend so things were a bit hectic but they helped me get SO much done! Plus, I don't think I changed a single diaper on Saturday :)
Let's recap last week:
Finish going through Clay's closet and spend more time cuddling.
Done! Thanks to my Aunt Doris and mom Clay's closet is 95% done. All I have to do is hang the clothes in my OCD manner and it will be done! And I got to spend some time cuddling with my baby although my mom and aunt pretty much monopolized him this weekend...
Buy myself flowers.
Make Z&Z a special snack.
So the planned snacks didn't happen but I did make Salted Caramel Brownies (look for the recipe on Wednesday) yesterday and bring them each one today :)
Get closet/office usable
80% done! Again, thanks to my Aunt and mom! I'm so excited about this room now that I can actually use it!
Register for the Thunder Road Half in November. And focus on getting up to running 5k without stopping.
Done and done! I registered on Wednesday for the Half (eeeeeeeeeeeeek) and accidentally ran 5k on Wednesday without stopping! Haha. Liz and I went for a run on Wednesday and she thought that the path we were taking looped around...well, it didn't so we turned around when we got to the dead end (which was at the top of a monster hill) and our run ended up being 3.1 miles! Woot!
Make new foods for Clay
So...I didn't do this but it's on the agenda for tomorrow. Plus I bought 4 new foods!
It's a secret :)
Done! I made my mom and aunt "Thanks for Visiting" bags (I think this may be a tradition for guests...). In a sweet Target canvas bag I put: favorite snacks, a framed picture of Clay, and a new water cup.
On to this week...
The March challenge goal is TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!
This month I am going to focus on finishing up decorating and organizing my apartment. We moved in at the beginning of December so it's WAY past time that this gets done.
This week I'm going to focus on getting all of my frames hung and on getting at least one of my dressers painted.
Finish organizing Clay's closet and make sure I'm giving him plenty of cuddle time!
Make sure I'm getting rest! Sometimes I just need to learn to leave the mess and go to bed.
Run 3 times this week. I feel like things are always coming up and causing me to miss my run. So while this is a goal, I'm also not going to beat myself up if I don't do it. Babies get sick, weather is crappy sometimes, and work schedules change.
Right now I have a ton of leftovers from my family's visit, but when they are gone I want to sit down and make a loose meal plan for the month that includes two new recipes.
I know that the February challenge is over but I still want to try to continue to do something for others each week. This week I'm distributing the mouth watering Salted Caramel Brownies I made plus I have a couple of cards to mail!
Good luck to all of my fellow chasers!
