Hello everyone! To be honest, today feels more like a Monday than a Thursday but I’m all confused on the days over here. That’s what a 4 day weekend turned 5 day weekend does to you I guess. Have a great day 🙂
When I woke up yesterday, my stomach was still feeling a little eh but since I had a good nights sleep (and multiple naps on Tuesday 😉 I was up and ready for work. Breakfast was a little all over the place since we were a tad slow moving after not having to be up for work the past few days. Even with a pretty empty fridge, we managed to pull together some toast and eggs to start the day.
I was pleasantly surprised when I got to work and wasn’t overwhelmed with things to do. A big part of that was essentially my whole team took Friday off then Memorial Day so no one was working too much. The morning flew by and then I quickly went home for lunch and to hang out with Bailey before heading back to work a few more hours.
After work, I ended to the grocery store to pick up just a few essentials to tide us over until a bigger trip this weekend. If I had thought ahead, I could have done it all then but oh well. It won’t kill me to go back right? On the drive home I thought about heading out for a run but decided to hold off one more day since my stomach still wasn’t 100% back to normal.
Bailey and I went for a walk after she got fed and the groceries were all put away. I finished unpacking and then pulled out my book to keep reading. Throughout the night I picked it up a few times to read and am so close to finishing. Tomorrow will have a more in depth review but I’m a big fan of The Wife Between Us.
Alex got home from work and it was time to eat. I had everything heated up and ready to go so we could eat shortly after he got home. Shredded chicken burrito bowls hit the spot and involved minimal cooking which is always a plus. The chicken was the dinner we were supposed to have before we left for Chicago but decided to throw it in the freezer for when we got back home. One of the better decisions we’ve made for sure. I filled my bowl with brown rice, chicken, black beans, cheese, lettuce, salsa and a little sour cream. It was so tasty.
We watched an episode of the office before a certain furry family member reminded us that she had some more energy to get rid of. After leashing Bailey up we headed to the tennis courts to play a few rounds of fetch. One of the young kids in our complex was walking by and ran up to the gate to say “Hi Bailey” before quickly telling us he had to go home. It was adorable and Bailey LOVES all the friends she has in the complex.
After we got home, we finished our episode of The Office then headed off the bed.
Question of the day: Do you find that getting back to a normal routine after a few days off takes a while?
