Weekly Catch-up

Hi Friends!

Life has slowed down a little bit and I'm finding I have a little more free time at night. Although that may be just a false feeling I'm getting since we are being blessed with more and more daylight everyday.

I've been really slacking keeping guys up to date with life and cranking out recipes. But I've always said and still do, this blog is just a hobby and I don't want it to be forced. I have tons I could say,  I don't want it to be a daily obligation. If I don't feel like writing, you won't see a post from me. I haven't gone anywhere I just haven't had a strong motivation to post lately. The time and energy is present but the motivation-- not so much! Hopefully it'll ramp up soon!

So, anyway- I thought I'd give you a run down of our week. And maybe even make it a weekly thing. But we'll see :)

So the week started out with me getting back into running. The last couple months I was participating in the Fitmixer Bootcamp combining lots of strength moves with cardio. Then I moved into a bunch of back pain and nursing it with physical therapy and stretch moves. With all of these things going on running took a backseat. When I realized on March 31that I had a 5k in just 20 days I realized I should probably start running again. So this week I've been doing just that. I'm not a strong runner, nor do I really even enjoy it much, but I've been running everyday this week. I'm feeling pretty good! :)

Monday nights are reserved for gymnastics. Kaydin still loves it and it's fun to watch her learn new skills and grow in the sport every week.

Tuesday I finally got around to delivering dinner to my friend Kristyn and her office. It's tax season in her world so she's been working long hours. I owed them a dinner for their number crunching skills so I threw together some pulled pork sandwiches, couscous and steamed broccoli, and some angel food cake.

Wednesday night is my late night at work so Kaydin and I got home, prepared some leftovers for dinner and hung out til Tim got home. We also threw down some grass seed in the bare spots in front of my patio. Here's hoping for a little rain and some sprouting seeds in the near future.


Thursday after work and our trip to the library, I got to work organizing and cleaning up stuff. I organized some cupboards, cleaned the floors and just cleaned in general. Not my favorite task but was sadly needed.

This week I also got to work on looking at the calendar and mapping out the spring and summer events. Just like every other year, we have lots going on but I wouldn't have it any other way! Plus the OCD planner in me likes to have everything planned and laid out. I lovveeeeee calendars and planners! Lots to look forward to including a trip to Utah, Kansas City, and Minneapolis and also some gatherings with some close girlfriends!

This has been a pretty typical week for us and we've got a busy weekend ahead. Kaydin will be attending her first softball practice which means we'll be hitting the sports store to get her decked out in all her needed equipment. Also on Saturday is her school carnival. Seems like a big deal at her school so should be fun! Sunday morning we'll be headed up north to Mom and Dad's bright and early to spend the day with family for a late Easter celebration. Word is the Easter Bunny made a stop at their house looking for her and left a few eggs in the yard. I'll let ya know how the hunt goes! :)

Happy Friday!

  3. I totally feel you on losing motivation to post from time to time, definitely happens to me a lot too! I'm the same way: blogging is a hobby of mine, not my job. I don't ever want to feel "forced" to write if I really have nothing to say. plus I feel like as a blog reader, I can spot those kinds of posts from a mile away haha. Sounds like you guys had a great week though! Great job getting back into running full force!
