Weekly Round Up #16

Last week was my anniversary with The Kilted One (14 years!), The Kid's 1.5 year check up, and an overnight stay for The Kid at Grandma and Grandpas house.

PT was getting darn near easy last week, so Jason promised to step it up - more on that next week.

Hopefully I will be getting back to dancing soon. I was cleared to start going back to the gym, and the boot is off my foot.

Our 14th wedding anniversary was Wednesday, which we celebrated by not really doing anything. (I did get quite a bit of work done on a blanket for a coworker - more on that below).

Thursday I took The Kid over to see the doctor - his check up went well, and tho he is still dramatically underweight he is still growing. We feed him basically whatever he wants to eat, whenever he wants to eat it, he just burns the calories off so darn quick!

The Kid is up and walking (quite a bit in fact) and talking up a storm. Please, Thank You, and You're Welcome are part of his vocabulary, and he basically know when to say each.

Saturday The Kid spent the night at my parent's house, while The Kilted One and I went to dinner and to see Dead Pool (which was amazing)

Weekly Round Up #15: Noodle Substitute, Kid Free Evening, Raw Pad Thai

As I have mentioned before - the Buffalo Chicken in the Crockpot is the BEST recipe. I ate Buffalo chicken with a baked potato and broccoli every day for lunch (except Friday, when I had a grilled chicken salad).

No weight changes this past week, which was a bit disappointing, but it did bolster my efforts to get into a groove with my life - sleep, food, etc. - so I do not have to think too much about any one thing.

We tried sweet potato 'noodles' this week. As a spaghetti replacement they were spot on, as a replacement for zucchini noodles in the pesto shrimp recipe that I shared a week or so back... not so much.

This week's most interesting points were related to our daycare provider being sick. Tuesday that meant meeting up with my mom partway through the day, so that she could take The Kid for the afternoon, and then the following day my SIL watched him - and kept him for the evening.

Without The Kid for an evening, we did what any parents would do - chores. Laundry, a hair cut (The Kilted One cut mine), and dishes. Everything was quick and easy, without our little one underfoot. May seem like a small thing to some, but it was great.

Friday I got our taxes in - our regular computer decided to stop turning on so I had to improvise on my phone.. which was a new and exciting way to do our taxes.

The weekend brought a yard sale at my Mom's house, and we sold some of The Kids clothes and toys. Some of the things that we didn't sell went to Once Upon a Child, and the rest is still in my truck awaiting a trip to our storage unit.

Sunday we took a moment to go look at a duplex that will be going up for sale soon, and then cruised by Costco, and Wegmans.

The one new recipe for the week was Sunday Dinner - Raw Pad Thai. All in all pretty tasty, but could have used some spice. I omitted the edamame, as soy bothers me. Next time, I may add some shrimp or chicken in it.
