Today was a day of relaxing and recharging. Our Saturday was exhausting so we needed it.

We all slept in. We went out for coffee and breakfast we got breakfast for a nice homeless man we see from time to time.

We cleaned house and played in the pool. While Savannah napped and Brandon played XBox I got our dinner started.

After that I was busy getting all kids paperwork filled out for school. I paid for Brandon’s pictures since his picture day is Wednesday.

I ordered Savannah’s scholastic books. Vacuumed, mopped, dusted, cleaned mirrors did laundry.

Gave Brandon his lunch money for the week. I looked which oils I’m out of that I need to order.

I didn’t go to Bed Bath and Beyond and I need to so o can price out Duvet and pillows I need for Savannah’s bed. Her princess bedding came in but I don’t have duvet or pillows yet.

I am so close to 250 club but have missed a few days of Pure Barre. I still hope I can get there before my Birthday!

My poor husband is under the weather and working like crazy I am hoping he’s taking care of himself!

So proud of my son doing great at football and has all A’s in every class every assignment thus far.

I am so blessed to have such amazing kids. I hope they get to enjoy being kids as long as possible.

I also hope they can love everyone and not withhold love from people when I see kids who are kept from enjoying their whole family it breaks my heart.

I love that when I grew up even though my grandparents divorced when my mom was five I’d always have everyone at Birthdays Christmas’s etc they all got along she was remarried my grandpa had a serious girlfriend it was one big happy family.

My son was lucky enough to not just meet his grandparents but both great grandparents on my side he had my grandpa until he was 3 and my Nana until he was about to turn 9.

My daughter really just has my parents she got to be around my husbands father for over 9 months but she was so young she will never remember which makes me sad and my Nana passed weeks before she was born

She has my parents but they aren’t as hands on and doting and begging for time with her to spend the night etc like they did when Brandon was her age. I get it they are older now it’s just a bummer for her.

I want her to have all her family In her life so time will tell if she will get to enjoy that.

Brandon and Savannah have such a beautiful relationship with each other and I am incredibly blessed.

I am praying for a speedy recovery for my sons friend he was injured at the game Saturday and will be out the rest of the season.

I’ve been enjoying making smoothies again. Today I had a strawberry& Pineapple smoothie it was delicious.

Our month is jam packed and on my Birthday the kids have Dance and a football game so not sure what we will be able to do to celebrate.

Our trip at the end of the month will serve as our Birthday trip. It just won’t be quite as amazing as it was planned to be because things unforeseen changed. But time away and together is always a blessing.

Trying to get so much done new Events popping up daily. With school trips, picture days, football, dance, engagements, birthdays weddings and pregnancies their is always $ being spent and our well is drying up.

So I’m doing my best to dial back even on gifts for others as it’s just that time of year for us to watch spending.

Our house looks pretty great but of course still so much to get done. Savannah’s room is nearly done Brandon’s room will come next.

Then hopefully lighting fixtures for inside house our walltree and solar panels new windows to replace the single pane.

The backyard will be the biggest expense and time consuming front yard will take some $ but not much time.

My shoulder has been sore on and off for days so hoping that feels better soon!

Tomorrow I have so much to get done. I’m glad the latest update on Savannah’s little friend with Cancer was a good one everything is looking good they caught it early and are gonna be strong and I know he can beat this😊 I hope everyone had a great weekend!
