It's Wednesday night. By this time of the week I'm pretty exhausted. Four full days of work and life. Add in a sick baby girl this week--which means a little less sleep and interrupted sleep--and it's been a week.
Wednesday night is also a great night because it means "mommy days" are coming up. When Miss Rose was little she always wanted to know what the plan for the day was. Somehow I started identifying the day by who she would be with--especially since her week has always been split between different family members and a daycare for a while too. The days I was home we called "Mommy days.'
This title has carried on of course, and now Gracie often asks if "today is a Mommy day".
I love Mommy days. They love Mommy days.
Tomorrow will be extra fun because Miss Rose is off school for Veterans Day. I think we're heading to the Children's Museum. I recently scored a family membership for 1/2 off. We haven't ever been before, but I hear it's lots of fun--very hands on. I'm sure it will be kind of busy since it's a holiday, but we'll give it a shot.
Over at Work, Wife, Mom....Life it's Working Mommy Wednesday and Julia wants to know about lunch habits! I'm sure this is just going to be fascinating.
Well, I'm in the office three days a week. I usually bring lunch two days and buy out one day. Tuesdays are our staff meetings and we always go out to lunch afterwards. I try to keep my meal at $15 or less. Sometimes I wish I didn't spend that money each week, but it's an important time for fellowship and relationship with my co-workers.
When I bring my lunch, what I bring often depends on how much time I have to prepare it. Peanut butter & jelly is a fan favorite. Seriously. I love that sandwich. A great mix of protein and carbs, sweet and salty and I usually have it on whole grain bread. A new favorite is using sandwich thins, toasting them and putting egg salad on them. I also love this recipe--so easy and tasty. I haven't made it in a few weeks. I think it's time. I also usually have a piece of fruit, and maybe something crunchy. More often than not, I have a few small pieces of candy too, if I have to be honest. I don't bring it...but one of the offices is always stocked and I have a hard time not going in there!
That's what's for lunch!
