Hi friends! Happy Thursday! Today is Rylie's Friday because she doesn't have school on Fridays so we are doing the happy dance. I've seen several people do coffee date posts and I love them mostly because coffee dates with my friends are so wonderful. Here we go!
If we were having coffee today I'd ask you to please meet me out somewhere and not at my house. Rowan threw up 3x in the night and I've Lysol'd the whole house and put every applicable essential oil possible on all of us and the diffuser. He seems to be cheerful and has kept down a piece of toast and sprite just fine so I'm hoping it's just something he ate. I wouldn't want you to have coffee here unless you enjoy an intense Lysol smell =)
If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you that I'm so happy Rylie's last day of school is in a week but also super anxious about school next year. Rylie has had such a journey in the early intervention program for our county. It's located in the elementary school in walking distance of our house. She has grown so much and we adore her teachers. After 2 years with them I'm SO sad to be moving on to regular kindergarten and nervous about a million other things that go with moving on. I am a creature of habit and sentimental and I have a million what if's. I trust that God is the author of Rylie's story and I can't mess it up by making the hard choices I have to make about her education and therapies. He has her in his hand, I do trust that but I still worry because that girl is such a gift. She's also stubborn and thinks she is the chief and we are all indians...but we're working on it.
If we were having coffee this morning I'd ask you for your best non-salad lunch ideas that were healthy. I feel like it takes too long to make a salad for lunch and heaven knows I rarely have time for a few hours of food prep each week so I end up eating sandwiches and fruit or tuna salad most of the time. I hope when it gets hotter that salads sound appealing but for now they just don't. I loooooove working out but passing up anything like chocolate or cupcakes or donuts or brownies, well I stink at saying no to those. Yep, I'll workout at 6am, drink a smoothie, eat a sandwich and fruit and totally share a brownie with Rowan. It makes no sense and I'm not gaining weight because I workout so consistently but WHEW would you see my muscles if I could say no to drugs...I mean SUGAR.
