This was a great day. I was feeling great and able to do quite a bit. I know that I did get sick the following day which led to another hospital stay. But for the past two weeks I've been feeling mostly ok so we've gotten to have more days like this. When I'm sick, I am in bed and Georgia is either here with David, at a friend's house or watching a lot of TV.
My day started with my 6 a.m. alarm. I grab a glass of sweet tea and snuggle back in bed to do my daily devotional. I'm working through this book and I absolutely love it! It's just perfect for moms of preschool and older.
Interrupted a few minutes in to send David a text....But by 6:30 I'm caffeinated and ready to work. I work a few hours a week for a wealth management firm. Right now I'm working on getting their client database up to date, labeling each client and tidying up data, which will make future communications and organization much easier. There's also a blog post that needs to be edited.
It's Tuesday, which means the girls have show & tell! Today is "P" day and Georgia wants to take popcorn to share with her class, so I pop some up and make her lunch while she finishes breakfast and gets dressed.
At 8:30 Miss Sassy wants her picture taken while we're walking into preschool. School is from 8:30 - 2 and I need to get some groceries and household items, so I head straight to Target after walking her to class.
By the time it's over at 9:30, we've talked social media strategy and my cart is overloaded with junk food and a few things I might use for the nursery or playroom. (wooden crates, pink storage bins, pillows are no longer available online) I lucked out because my Target mistakenly had some of the Pillowfort stuff marked as clearance (this was before it officially debuted). Score for me!
Right before I check out, I remember that Georgia has been asking for "this little purse notebook I saw at Target" so I decide to surprise her. Good thing because it's the last one! She's a little sweetheart after my own heart...loves office supplies!
At 12:30 I do a quick prenatal strength workout from YouTube.
When it's done I'm sweaty and feeling good, so I decide to go for a little walk around my neighborhood. It's beautiful out!
I change my pump site then hop in the shower - I have to insert the needle at a different spot 2-3 times a day and the sites stay red, itchy and swollen for a few days.
At 1:50 I'm clean and ready to go pick up my Ladybug!
Georgia had a great day at school and her friends loved the popcorn!
We get home, get her washed up and play a little. At 2:30 it's time for a snack. Georgia ate all of her lunch, so I let her have a nutritious splurge on some "Chin-Cheetos" and chocolate milk. And I see those cereal boxes in the background that we forgot to take to school - oops!
While she's eating I go through her backpack. Anybody remember these? Book order days were my always a fun day for me growing up!
Georgia really wants an Inside Out book and CD set....
At 2:55 it's time for my second favorite part of the day - more cuddle time before a nap! So we head upstairs.
Georgia wants to sleep in the guest room so we take her pillows and loveys and get settled in with some books.
I nap for an hour until 4, then it's time for some laundry.
Then - ugh! - I decide to clean up my bedside area. I can't believe I'm showing this, but it is what it is! A big stack of books and a few package deliveries that have kept me occupied on days when I'm too sick to get out of bed. And some of Georgia's toys and craft supplies as some of these days she plays on the bed quite a lot to keep us both entertained.
At 5 this guy is home, which is early for him - a nice surprise for me! Georgia is still snoozing so we get to spend some time together.
He goes to get Georgia up and I fix myself a snack. I've been looking forward to some avocado toast practically all day. Unfortunately, I take one bite and start chewing, then start gagging and dry heaving, so no avocado today.
At 6 we stroll over to the park and take a walk around the lake before dinner. I didn't photograph dinner, but I think I had rice cakes and maybe peanut butter while they had real food.
We watch some TV at 8 while David catches up on email or the Coachella line up, then we get Georgia bathed and ready for bed.
By 9 we are in bed with a story and her AWANA verse. We're a few weeks behind so playing catch up and doing two or three verses a week. She wanted me to ask you all why the stickers are chipmunks and not bears. (They actually are bears. I think.)
We sing our favorite songs to one another, get lots of snuggles and kisses, then it's lights out. I get in bed and read for an hour or so then it's lights out and nighty-night for me, too!
