  • Do you experience a mid-afternoon crash? What's your remedy for it? - Ugh, always.  Mid- to late-afternoon is my worst time of day.  I just power through it... caffeine usually doesn't have much effect on me.

    What did you have for lunch today? - Um.  I can't remember.  Is that bad? :P

    What are you planning for dinner tonight? - My mom babysat DS tonight and brought pizza, so I had a leftover piece of that when I got home.

    Are you at work? If so, what sort of project are you working on? - I'm at work 24/7, and always working on not losing my sanity w/ 2u2. ;)

    How do you feel about today's weather? Is it making you feel dreary? - I actually kinda enjoyed it b/c I had minimal housework to take care of during DS's naptime, so I was able to snuggle w/ DD and the rainy weather just felt right for being lazy w/ her for a little while.

    What's the best thing that's happened today? The worst? - Best:  found a bunch of good deals at a kids' consignment sale tonight!  Worst:  realized at 9:15 this morning that I had completely forgotten about needing to have a couple different dishes ready for an event at church, and they needed to be ready by lunchtime... which meant I got to drag 2 kids out in the pouring rain to haul ass to the grocery store and then get back home to throw everything together.  I hate when I do stuff like that, but I WAS successful at doing the grocery run w/ both of them in the rain, so I was feeling a bit supermom-ish w/ that!  Haha!

    Do you plan to work out tonight? - Does trolling the consignment sale count?!

  • Do you experience a mid-afternoon crash? What's your remedy for it? Yes - basically an all afternoon crash. I know it's because I eat too much at lunch and then I just want to nap all afternoon. So, I nap when I get home from work.

    What are you planning for dinner tonight? I think some super healthy TGI Friday all-in-one skillet meal.

    How do you feel about today's weather? Is it making you feel dreary?   Yesterday's weather(since this is Thursday AM) did make me feel dreary.  Today I'm excited bc its supposed to be warm and sunny.

    What's the best thing that's happened today? The worst? Umm.  Best thing was getting a new delivery of milk (yay for fresh chocolate milk delivered to my door lol!) and worst thing was.....I dunno. 

    Do you plan to work out tonight? Nah, just a nice long walk.
