Today I was Awesome

Last night I went to bed late, and then stayed up even later reading. The book wasn't even that good, but it was short-ish and I wanted to finish. When my alarm rang this morning I began to regret the fact that I had once thought getting Bountiful Baskets would be a good idea. However, I decided to get up and get moving. I started by going to pick up my produce. I am more than prepared for Thanksgiving next week.

After I got home from picking up the produce I almost went back to bed. It's Saturday and the kids were at their dad's house until this afternoon. But I had made plans and I wanted to stick with them. I spent the morning cooking up a bunch of food to put in the freezer; I made chicken and wild rice soup; butternut squash soup; meatballs; and calico beans. It doesn't sound like a lot, but I only get to cook about half the days of the week and I have a few other things in the freezer. I took a break in the middle to run to Target for some groceries. Now I don't have to figure out what's for dinner or stress about cooking it for an entire month.

While I was at Target I picked up a new windshield wiper for my car. Then I came home and installed it myself. Go me. My car also had the 'tire pressure' light on, so when I went to Costco this afternoon I stopped by the tire center to see if I could get some help with figuring out the problem. The super nice guy working there showed me how to use their cool air pump that has a built-in digital pressure gauge. I checked all four tires and filled them up. I felt so awesome doing it. I love Costco.

After I ran errands and cooked all day, I picked up the kids and took them to their cousin's birthday party tonight. Surprisingly, P-Bibby was the one who enjoyed it the most. A crowded bowling alley and a bunch of hyper 9 and 10 year old boys were kind of intimidating to the other two. P-Bibby danced to the music, ate an entire slice of pizza, a million grapes, and a whole cupcake. She thought it was awesome. I thought that I was an awesome mom because I did not have a nervous breakdown.

Now I'm going to be awesome by putting myself to bed on time. Maybe I'll get up and make pancakes so I can keep my awesome streak going.

Good job! I love it when days come together like that. I think you get extra points for not going back to bed with the snow this morning.

Yeah, you get bonus points for not going back to bed. I probably would have. I'm really impressed with your productivity. I'm impressed with ANYONE'S productivity these days, because mine seems to be nonexistent. ;)
Hurray for awesomeness!
