After my "ending Thursday" post, which was referring to the sun going down versus the end of my life, I will keep this post more upbeat.

I made some drawstring bags last night when the kids finally went to bed. The first one was ok for a gift to my kid, not to be seen by anyone else familiar with sewing (the middle one). The blue bag had only 1 step screwed up but otherwise is show-off-able. The 3rd one I made, on the left, is brilliant and perfect and I'm gifting it away. These took 20 minutes each to make. Maybe less by the 3rd one. I kinda like using up my useless scraps for these!

Living The Dream

This is the face of a mom after a SHORT days' work. The day isnt even over yet! Hours to go!
Bank problems, kids medical problem with questionable insurance problems, 2 years of hard work towards a licensing goal problem, money problems unrelated to bank problems, childcare problems.... All from one day. Today, Thursday July 18th. I wish you would end, Thursday.

Lets face it- the only good thing I squeezed from today is this beer in front of me. Its my husbands and the only selection in the fridge. Its looking better and better as each moment goes by... Did I mention the kids are napping? I didnt want this entire post to be complaining.

Sebastian Bootcamp

Sunny and I rocked it at our first bootcamp today. The weather was actually amazing, since these clouds made it breezy and a record breaking temp in the 70s. Thats cold for a Florida summer night!

We ran, we stretch, did planks, did crab walks, bear crawls... All good. The boys sat nearby and were semi- blobs.

We came home and I whipped up garlic naan bread on our griddle with cucumber salad, roasted red peppers, feta, kalamata olives and a new ingredient for our greek nights, wickles PEPPERS. Like pickles, only better.

We'd never seen the kids shove so much food in their mouths. First dinner they've actually eaten in 2 weeks Jason said... We've had "new rules" regarding food in this house. They sit at the pantry doors and whine all day. Now its 3 meals a day with 1 snack in between, thats it. A big change from before. And after not hardly feeding them since we were out on the river.... they were hungry for a change.
