Happy, happy Friday to all of you readers out there in Blogger Land!
Today is a very special Friday (I feel like I say this on a lot of days.. but just roll with it.. kapeesh?)
Today – is indeed.. the last REAL, FULL, Friday of the school years. Yes, Sir-ree-bob! You see- next Friday, we will celebrate “Picnic in the Park”, which is my school’s version of field day. The following Friday – is the last day.. and half day.. so yeah.
I have some teetering feelings on Picnic in the Park – I think it will be barrels of fun for the kids.. maybe 1 barrel of fun for the adults.. but I am also kind of stressed and a tiny bit worried about keeping all of my kids on track.. and safe.
From what I heard.. this is kind of like a mini carnival.. if you may. There will be a DUNK TANK (which apparently ALL first year teachers must be a victim of.. uhm seriously?), cotton candy machines, bouncy houses.. you know the REAL DEAL.
I’ve got a few kids that are known to just up and leave when things aren’t going their way.. and this makes my heart flutter a little. I want to enjoy myself and not worry about making sure no one decides to venture out into the city! (This is not at the school.. we walk to a park a couple of blocks away!)
Anywho – that is a whole week away.. there is no need to stress about it NOW!
Last night.. I had a horrible night’s sleep. I kept waking up with muscle spasms in my calves. I have been hydrating plenty … so I am not sure what the deal is. It doesn’t quite get to a Charlie Horse.. but it is still annoying none the less.
After my third or forth one.. at about 2:30 in the morning.. I had enough so I got up to walk around for a bit and down a glass of water. While I was not hungry.. I still decded I would take a peak in the fridge to see what was in there…
You know.. in case Justin went food shopping after I went away.
And still, while I was not hungry, I decided to have a couple of spoonfuls of cottage cheese and a spoonful of Love Grown Cocoa Goodness.
Midnight Snacking .. has always been a vice of mine. Now – hear me out midnight snackers (aka my nickname when I was living with a group of gals after I graduated..)
I don’t think there is ANYTHING wrong with eating in the middle of the night.. when it is actually HUNGER that is calling you to the food.. and there is an ability to recognize when you are full.. and stop eating.
You see.. midnight snacks.. used to be one of my mini binges. In the middle of the night.. I would tip-toe to the kitchen.. (using my phone as a flashlight, of course) .. and chow down.. eating a couple of Fiber-One.. or other types .. of bars.. a handful of preztels.. some peanut butter..MINDLESS eating.
And then return to sleep.
So – midnight snacking.. does not resignate with me very well .. and I work my hardest to completely STEER AWAY from it.. avoiding any possible trigger for a binge.
Thankfully, while I did eat (mindlessly..without hunger), I did not binge. I think I was hoping that maybe I needed some calcium.. which I could get from the cottage cheese.
With so many interruptions to my sleep, I was SUPER tired when I awoke this morning.
I debated between getting an iced-tea.. or an iced-coffee from Dunkin. Fridays = Dunkin. When I went outside.. I IMMEDIATELY changed over to a HOT beverage. Yup. It was rather chilly for June.
I ran over some glass that I did not see as I was pulling into the parking lot..
And freaked out that it would damage my tires.. and I would be stuck at school on a Friday afternoon. I was assured it would be okay. Soo, I settled down and started to prep for my day.
I chowed down on my morning bowl of oats at around 9:00 (tummy didn’t want food before then.. was feelin’ pretty blah this morning)
And then I snacked on a BANANA at around 11. Maybe I am needing more potassium to help with the spasms?!
Had my typical lunch.. eating my sandwich in the same WEIRD way…
Snacked on some yummy grapefruit during recess…
And then freed myself from school for the weekend.
I couldn’t make it to yoga last week. (Couldn’t… read just didn’t want to.. I had a half day and wanted to be outside) and had every intention on going today. Until I got a text from Justin saying he was heading home early .. to beat traffic.
I opted out of yoga and met him at home.. and we went on a perfect 3 mile walk… in perfect weather. Some sights:
A few restaurants we’d like to try:
And.. this knock off Dairy Queen:
Seriously.. Dairy King?!
No worries.. I ended up getting my 99 cent large iced tea..
While Justin got a Frozen Hot Chocolate.. and was not impressed…
Am still in shock that this farmer’s market down the road from me has hours on WEDNESDAYS from 11 – 3.. so a LARGE majority of the population is likely at WORK! 😦
And came back to find our speed bumps bright yellow..
Except the fact that they MISSED A HUGE PART right in the MIDDLE of this one.
Guess 5:00 came and the work day was done?
No plans for tonight.. but we may go to a movie tomorrow maybe get our BOWL on .. and I am also in desparate need of purchasing window treatments. I need new blindes.. and curtains.
I am a little intimadted by this. So… this is why it has been 10 months .. and we still have made no changes. I need something to cover this:
New blindes for each of these:
And curtions for those as well.
So. Do I like..measure the window? I suppose I do. What have your experiences been with buying window treatments. It kind of gives me anxiety.
SO WITH THAT BEING SAID…JUSTIN, I apologize for always blaming you for not being more proactive about getting curtains, blindes, etc. I was doing it all out of love.. and avoidance of actually doing it. ❤
LAST CALL FOR DONATIONS FOR BAKING FOR BOOBIES.. A goodie bag, a baked good.. an ONLINE GIFT CARD.. anything 🙂
One more quick thing before I go – I’ve been made away that my posts are being used on another site.. like.. random changes of words that don’t make sense.. but all in all.. my post. my pictures.. in its entirety.. Lisa @ Healthful Sense told me.. and I also had some ping back spam from the site..
What can I do to stop/prevent this from happening?
