Monday Musings

You know how a lot of people swear by having a routine for their kids and sticking to it?  I do that to myself.  I am way more productive and way less stressed when I have a routine to follow.  The last few weeks have been pretty routine-less because of everything going on, but I think I am finally back to a point where I can figure something out.  It seems like lately when I set out to have a very productive day, well, as John Steinbeck said, the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.  I’m trying though and one of these days its going to work out for me.  I did okay on my list from last week—I got the baby gifts done and the apartment is starting to look nice again.  I didn’t work on the puff quilt at all because I ended up going back to work last week.  I’m not licensed yet (won’t get the Bar results until mid-September), so I’m doing the same thing as before, working part time.  I’m so thankful for it though, even if it did cut my vacation short. 

Here’s what we are eating this week:

Sunday: Tacos
Monday:  Skillet Chicken with Tomatoes
Tuesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs
Wednesday: Chicken BLTs
Thursday: T-Bones game
Friday: Enchiladas
Saturday: Date Night for our anniversary (crazy to think we’ve been dating for 2 years now)

Projects for This Week

One of my law school friends had a birthday right before the Bar.  Due to time constraints (aka studying for 12 hours a day), I had to give her an IOU.  I've come up with something that I think is going to be pretty cute but you guys won’t get to see it until I have a chance to give it to her.
Maybe I’ll actually get a chance to work on the puff quilt this week.  Don’t hold your breath—the last one took me forever to do too.  I seriously am the world’s slowest sewer. 
I’ve got to come up with a  new hobby/craft that I can do during football games.  I really don’t like football but Alex loves it.  I’m thinking of taking up knitting (again).  I know how to do it, I’m just not patient enough.  If anyone has any ideas for a portable hobby, let me know.

A Little Inspiration to Get You Though the Week
