aside from my goal to lose the needed twenty pounds, there are many things on my mind for the upcoming week. i will be making a weekly meal plan. i figure this is the best way to get myself to cook for my family. i've been feeling so uninspired to cook dinner most nights, pretty much since i had wyatt. poor husband. poor me, my body feels the lack of good cooking. and my poor children who have come to think that the quick, rushed mommy running around the kitchen at the last minute, is so normal. i need to change this.
so, on my to-do list this week:
make a weekly meal plan tonight (as in, after i post this. got it, self?)
make dental cleaning appointments for the whole family
make appointment with an occupational therapist
appointment with a chiropractor (my tailbone...ouch)
celebrate eight years with my honey!
get our garden in in the backyard finally. geez!
appointment with an allergist (for wyatt's excema)
i think that is a good start, don't you? now, let's see where the rest of this week takes me. i already dropped two of my classes for this semester, leaving me with one. i kept having this insanely strong feeling that i shouldn't be in school right now. i ignored it til yesterday, because i WANT. TO. FINISH!!! but it became apparent that that was not right. i dropped the two classes and felt a huge lift in spirit. so i will only be taking a family history class this semester, which feels good. i need this. i think it will be good too, considering this is the push our stake has been pushing for a while now.
aaaand, here's a few pictures from our weekend in joshua tree, just for fun:
yes, it was hot, and wyatt was already driving me crazy going up lots of steep rocks. so i snapped this true blue shot of my happy face. we were waiting for friends to arrive and were unable to grab a campsite the first night, super bummer. the next night we did grab a sweet campsite at jumbo rock though!
i absolutely fell in love with joshua tree! i fully plan on camping there yearly, if possible. hidden valley campsite also was a cool place, but i would always be happy to be at jumbo rock. we rock climbed one afternoon and repelled down, which i am going to admit to being completely addicted to now. i can get into that, and i might have to now! =)
