Well, I was under the weather all weekend. I think I had food poisoning or a stomach bug. From Friday after school until Sunday morning, I didn’t feel very good.
Saturday around noon my husband took me to the library and Costco. My stomach still hurt but I was o.k. I came home and napped and then took my boys to buy the rest of their school supplies, mainly because I thought I needed to get out. Next door to the Office Depot is Kirkland’s. I took some pictures for you of all of their fall stuff, but I didn’t have energy to look at prices.
Here is the Rae Dunn collection.
Don’t they have such cute stuff? I didn’t buy anything, but I’m glad I saw the selection. It really made me want to decorate for fall.
After the school supplies, the boys and I picked up McAllister’s for dinner and watched a show as a family. I ate a baked potato and that was the only thing I had eaten since Friday night except 6 saltine crackers. I tried to go to sleep early, but I couldn’t get much sleep because I kept getting up because I was hot and cold. I finally got up around 5 and took a shower and that helped. I watched some news and tried to grade papers! I bring a lot of papers home at the beginning of the year before I can get my rhythm in getting more done at school. Also, I assigned a one page paper for all of my classes that was due Friday – so I have to grade 130 papers.
Around 9, I had the energy to do meal prep, meal plan, and grocery. I bought this cute meal plan notepad from TJ Maxx about a year ago. Dinners this week will be very easy because it will be our first five day week and I’m sure I will not have much energy. They aren’t the healthiest. I want to get better about making dinner salads. I’m not sure my 3 boys would think that constitutes a meal, though!
My boys had so much homework on the first weekend of school, so Sunday afternoon, hub and I went to see this. It was very cute. I loved it. My hub laughed out loud several times, too. It is a drama, rom-com, I would say.
The boys’ friend came over when we got back so they got to have a little fun mixed in with all of the new school year homework. I seriously hate all of the homework that high schoolers have. They did homework Friday night, much of the day Saturday, and much of the day Sunday.
I made my easy Sunday meal – remember my Sunday theme is sandwiches – for now at least. I found these brioche sub buns at Kroger and then deli turkey, provolone added melted, then added tomato, lettuce, and mayo.
And, homemade potato wedges were made. I’m still taking it easy – I didn’t eat any popcorn at the movies.
I started this book from the library this weekend.
Hope you all stay healthy! The germs are starting to spread at school already!
