Scenes from the weekend

by Sheri on August 22, 2012

My weekend was a whirlwind of single parenting!  The hubby was away biking and I was alone with the kiddos!  I felt like I was being pulled in a million different directions.  I am not sure how single parents do it because I would be a huge mess if I had to do it alone all the time!  So therefore the blogging kind of got pushed aside for the weekend.

I did manage to blog about my race and post a yummy recipe though so I was not totally absent.

I was so HAPPY when the hubby came home Monday night because I missed his help and well HIM as well!

So I will grace you will some of the pictures I managed to take on my busy weekend.

SUNDAY

Managed to get to sleep in till 8am before the boys got up and then made a Breakfast Frittata…so darn good.  I will make this again for sure!

Weird…but I had Baked Banana Oatmeal for lunch.  It was what I was craving.

By time supper rolled around I was so exhausted and done.  I put the kids in the car and we had a treat for supper.  Burgers!

IMG_2845

Jaxin was happy since burgers are his favourite! and so are the fries.

MONDAY & TUESDAY mixed together.

Got up early on Monday and did my workout.  It was early I was pooped but I did it anyway.  Felt good afterwards.  Gave me the boost I needed after a really Looooooong weekend!

Green Smoothie for breakfast.

So happy about breakfast….love it!

The hubby got home by supper time on Monday and we were ALL happy to see him!  Thank goodness!

Then we jump to Tuesday I took Zoei to the vet for her annual check up along with Jaxin and Zaxari in tow!  Man was that fun…not!

IMG_2867

Put Zax on my chest in the baby carrier which he is not all that fond of.  When I walked in the receptionist said “BOY you have your hands FULL”  YUP!

IMG_2865

But we survived the appointment that way.

After dropping Zoei back off at home we were off to the mall for some back to school shopping for Jaxin.  He starts Kindergarten in TWO WEEKS!…TWO WEEKS!

First stop lunch at Subway.  Healthiest place in the food court.

My lunch companions!

After lunch we got what we needed and got out!  It was busy…everyone else was doing the same thing!

SUPPER

IMG_2880

We grilled some chicken and I made some artichoke salsa.  We put it all on top of a bulgur & Qunioa Mix…it was very good!

After supper I got some much needed alone time at Ikea!  I went in search of some new bedroom furniture for Jaxin.

IMG_2882

Loved this room…I could sleep here no problem!  It looked so cozy!

IMG_2886

I managed to pick some stuff out for Jaxin’s room.  But the hubby will have to go and pick it up for me later. It will not fit in my SUV.

Of course before I left I had to have some frozen yogurt!

IMG_2896

Mmmmmm…yum!

Well that is what I was up to for 4 days.  It was busy and exhausting.  Now that the hubby is home I have been taking advantage of my evenings this week to do a few things by myself.  Like tonight I went and got a pedicure…it was lovely!

Now I plan on getting to bed early…so nighty…night!
