Not a lot of food this week. We've been eating, but I haven't been taking too many pictures. Last night was crock pot black bean soup...very good!
I was realizing something the other day. I've always known that I'm the only female in my group at work (that's pretty obvious), but also I realized that I'm the only parent.
That makes it difficult on occasion...less understanding. I think *most* of my coworkers are understanding, but sometimes I still get looks and comments.
So, a day in my life on Tuesday, after I left work.
Leave work at 4:35 pm.
Go to Fairview Gardens to pick up my veggies.
Go to pick up my son from school.
Go to the grocery store.
Cook dinner. (sauteed veggie hash and leftover pizza)
Put the veggies away.
Put the groceries away.
Do dinner dishes.
Make and pack my lunch.
Take out the compost.
Take out the recycling.
Start cooking for Weds night's dinner (chopping and sauteing veggies for the soup)
Put the soup veggies in the fridge.
Do the dishes from that.
Give my son a bath.
Brush/floss his teeth.
Read him a story.
Brush my teeth.
Pass out on my bed in exhaustion.
And the mornings are up, short workout, breakfast, breakfast dishes, get son dressed and fed, play, take him to school.
It's a far cry from olden days, when I may have been working 10 hours instead of 8, but I also could sit my butt down on the couch and have a beer and watch TV if I wanted. Or go to the gym. Or go for a walk. Or read a book.
