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.

I started this book from the library this weekend.  

Hope you all stay healthy!  The germs are starting to spread at school already!

  1. Oh bless your heart, being sick was the very last thing you needed the first weekend of school. Even though you were not feeling well you were still so productive! I haven’t been in Kirkland’s in forever but their Fall stuff is so cute. I love decorating for Fall, I saw the prettiest pillows at TJ Maxx last weekend but I didn’t buy them.
    Hope you’re feeling better today!


    1. Thank you! I don’t feel productive, but I guess I did a lot considering. I’m the worst sick person! Yes, trying to avoid fall for awhile!


  2. I’m so sorry you were sick! Hoping today is a better day. Thanks for the pictures at Kirklands- they always have the nicest things. I really want to see that movie so thanks for the review!!! Your meal prep plan looks very yummy 🙂


  3. So sorry you were sick this weekend. BOO! I love that all the fall stuff is popping up in the stores. It is still SO hot here it is hard to get into that fall spirit. I really want to see the movie and read the book. I wish I had a Kirklands, that Rae Dunn stuff is so cute!


  4. Sorry to hear you were under the weather for much of the weekend. That looks like a great book and we too try to make sandwiches/ grinders for dinner at least once a week.


    1. Thank you sweet lady! The book is chick lit but that’s my speed currently! The family loved my sandwiches last night! Good reminder to do this once a week, right? Thanks for reading!


  5. Hi! Just found your blog and I’m truly enjoying it! You have great taste! Can I ask where you bought the patchwork quilt? I love it!!!! Can wait to read your book recommendations!



    1. Thank you Sharon! The quilt is from Target and maybe 15 years old? I would love to have more quilts from antique stores. That is my guest room where I lay out my clothes. Thank you for commenting and I’m glad to have a new reader!
