This has been a good week for spending time with friends and tackling some of my organizational goals. That is about all it has been good for… 😉
We had fun play dating this week, swimming and cooking out with friends. I even get more time with good friends today, with the promise of hotdogs and alcohol, which sounds VERY promising!
I managed to make it to my first doula mentorship meeting in a VERY long time, and while I was happy to see people that I have been missing, the night also made me feel semi-sad. Sad that the birth world doesn’t really belong to me anymore, and that I now feel misplaced there.
The kids hanging with Maddie & Grace this week…
I took the idea of the snack drawers from Pintrest and just made a snack basket. I didn’t feel like buying a new set of plastic drawers for the project, and there really isn’t space in my pantry for them anyways, so I just decided to work with what I have. I think it worked out for the best, and has been a hit with the kids. This week it has homemade granola, applesauce, raisins, peanuts, pretzels, fruit leather and peanut butter crackers in it. Next on my agenda is to put a plastic tub in my fridge to keep refrigerated snacks in one area.
Also, I managed to work another thing off my to-do list, which was making a list of goals for myself for the upcoming school year, but some are just generally good reminders for every day living. My hope is that reading these on the bad days will help me pull through.
