Day In The Life

Ah, Monday.

It's the day that my husband typically doesn't work, so I kinda love it for so many reasons. I don't think he feels the same, though, because many of those reasons involve errands and running around. The part I heart? NO KIDS to make the tasks thirteen hours longer than they need to be.

We started the day with a leisurely morning and my hubs drove the kids to school. He hightailed it back to get me, and we dropped our furry kid off for her first day at doggy daycare. Don't mock me.

After the pup was safely playing with her new sweatered and vested poochy pals, (seriously dog owners? Not kind!) my husband remembered he had a gift certificate for a seafood place on the waterfront! Lunch out? Even better, for free? Hallelujah! The good news is that it's heavenly to get that time to just chat with my husband as adults about adult topics. The bad news is, Mondays are my worst day for staying on track in the eating and exercising category. I totally blame him.

I stayed pretty healthy, choosing a seafood bouillabase chock full of shrimp, tomatoes, haddock, scallops and mussels. It was delish! We shared a dessert, but I promise I only had a few bites and left it to him!

After lunch it was already time to pick up Poochy McPoocherson and the kiddos. Apparently the pup did great for her first day, though the handlers said she is "submissive and timid." Clearly they have her mixed up with some other adorable raggamuffin doodle.

I made a quick dinner of homemade chicken fingers and potato wedges, served with salad, and then it was off to meet a new friend for coffee at Starbucks.

I'm not a Starbucks frequenter, and man that menu is confusing to me. I quizzed my husband before I left regarding the "sizes" so I wouldn't look like (well, MORE like) a total dweeb. We both had the Skinny Caramel Macchiato, which wasn't high in calories. Yay! We sat chatting nonstop for an hour, and I could have sat there all night!

Alas, real life beckoned us both with kids needing pick ups and bedtimes and homework. Back to reality!

I didn't get my run in (again, I blame my husband) so I'm off to do that today. I need to fit my 3x in for this week, since last week I was struck by some flu bug that had me tired beyond belief.

The rest of my week is looking JUST as exciting-don't worry! :)
