This week has been...rough. It wasn't bad by any means, just so incredibly long and one of those ones that makes you realize you are alive and doing shit with yourself. I couldn't seem to get enough sleep, though I was sleeping at least 7 or 8 solid hours a night. I'm not sure if it's because I was super busy almost every day from 8am to 8pm, if it's because I started working out hard again, or because I've been working 6 days a week for the past month. Whatever it was, between today and tomorrow I'm hoping to give myself a clean slate for next week. I finally have two days off a week and I plan to use this weekend to read a lot, drink tea snuggled up on my couch while we get almost a foot of snow, watch a lot of Medium, catch up on Grey's Anatomy and Bones, go to the gym only on Sunday for a relaxing workout, and if I feel like it, do some laundry and clean the house. I also plan to make some paleo almond cookies with a cinnamon glaze and some paleo banana bread for next weeks breakfasts.
My house is a complete wreck because I've been too busy to clean it and Vince has been too tired from skiing on all his days off! Some wives would get mad at their husbands if the reason they couldn't clean was because they've been playing all day, and that's how I used to be, but I've started to relax about it. He (we) paid a lot for him to have skis and a ski pass and I want him to get the most out of it. He's happiest when he gets to do something physical, and I'd feel like an awful person to take that away from his right now. I know at some point we'll have a kid and he won't be able to do things like he is now, so he might as well enjoy it while he can!
One thing I do have to clean is the bathroom. I have a million little jars on the counter with the things I've been making myself like deodorant, toothpaste (two kinds because I don't like the one I first made but Vince loves it), coconut oil for lotion, etc. Vince can't seem to remember which one is his toothpaste even though they are in completely different jars and is afraid he'll use the one for my deodorant! But honestly, he could use any of them and be fine since they contain a lot of the same ingredients.
And lastly, I also want to do something with the succulents I bought.
How was your week?
