I’m running off to work in a few minutes, so let’s keep this short and sweet!! Today is my last day working at the VA on this block and I am SO excited to start an easier (hours-wise) rotation next week. My mind needs a little break.
And I need to sleep more. And snuggle my kid more. Maybe in that order?
Remy is still waking up with me at 5:30 (how does she know?!?!) so I don’t get much alone time in the morning, which I was initially pretty angry about since I really valued my ME time between 5:30 and 6:30. BUT on days when I get home late and only get to see her for 10 minutes after bath, I’m pretty grateful for that time in the morning.
What do you guys have in plan for the weekend?? You know I’ll be doing some cooking!! I promised Remy pancakes and I have my eyes on a blueberry banana oatmeal pancake recipe. I’ll share the recipe if they turn out! And, of course, there’s cooking for the week. Never a dull moment around here.
Have good one and enjoy this week’s meal plan!!! It’s got a lot of summer favorites that I’m really excited about.
