Happy Friday peeps! Do people still say "peeps"?
It's been quite a long week for me which is pretty apparent from the lack of posts around here. Here's the crappy shit I dealt with this week:
#icant get over the fact that I supposedly can't cook a proper corned beef brisket. Apparently I offended some people in the office when I brought in a corned beef brisket to cook the other day. I was just planning on cooking it according to the package directions (boil and simmer for 3 hours) then slicing it up to make sandwiches, but nooo...I was told that the "traditional" way to cook it was with vegetables and cabbage for St. Patrick's day. I wasn't even thinking of St. Patrick's day, I was thinking it was gonna go bad soon so I might as well bring it in and eat it. Anyway, so that person who told me I was doing it wrong offered to take it home and cook it "the right way" and bring it in the next day. Whatevs. After they made such a big fuss about it, I had high hopes of it being BOMB. It was...meh.
#icant stay home during the week anymore. Chloe and Trace were sick last Thursday and Friday so I stayed home to take care of them. Though I was able to get a little work done, I also did quite a bit of shopping online as well. I'm more in control of my spending habits when I'm at work - less free time to browse and the ever-present danger of someone catching me fooling around on company time. Blogging on company time is much easier - just draft your post in Word and it looks like you're actually working. Then just copy and paste it to your blog.
#icant believe Chloe will be six pretty soon! Thankfully, when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday this year she replied "clothes and shoes"! Her room is a mess of Barbies, Lalaloopsy play sets, Polly Pocket tidbits, etc. already so I'm glad that we won't be adding to the clutter! I ordered an outfit for her AND Aniyah from FabKids since they were having a BOGO free deal. Plus, it's one of those subscription things so they can get clothes each month. $29.95/month for a styled two-piece outfit is a pretty good deal to me - especially when the kids are constantly outgrowing their clothes.
#icant was my workout motto for most of the week. I worked up a really good sweat in the beginning of the week and then lost my motivation. My mind was yelling at my body to get up and just do it, but my body was resisting. Why can't there be an easy button?
#icant find time to record my tag video yet. I was supposed to do it last weekend but it was so busy since I had to make stuffed crab for a birthday party, clean the house, and the kids were still feeling a little sick too. It was really hard to find time to sit down and make a video without looking like a hot mess with kids whining in the background.
This weekend is not so busy for us. I've got to make crab again for my grandma's birthday dinner tomorrow night so hopefully the rest of the weekend will be relaxing and productive at the same time.
#iknowican record that tag video. I've already got my answers typed up - all that's left to do is to find some peace and quiet time where I can record without kids in the background! Oh, and pretty myself up so I don't look like a hot mess doing a tag video about beauty products when I don't have any makeup on my face.
#iknowican clean up my room! My sis-in-law and I are planning on having a yard-sale at my house at the end of the month so I can finally (hopefully) get rid of some junk that I don't need/use/fit anymore and make money off of it...to buy more junk. Lol.
#iknowican create something this weekend. It has been a while since I've done any crafting/DIYing and I'm itching to make something! Hopefully I can whip something up and release all the creative energy that has been building up - and of course share it with you all.
#iknowican paint.the.living.room. Okay, I'm on a mission now. This project has been on the back burner for too long now. I will do it this weekend - even if I can't get around to it until Sunday night, it will get done! You hear me, walls?? You're done.
