The weekend was a blur.
Saturday we putzed around the house. DS had a big project due today that he'd been struggling with. Luckily he admitted that he didn't think his ADD meds were cutting it about a week ago and Saturday was his first day on a new dose. He banged it out and I hope he gets a great grade because he needs to boost his grade in that class. I, honestly, can't really even remember what I did except futz the day away anxious about he would feel on a higher dose. I know he needs the meds but I hate the side effects. It's a true love-hate relationship. I managed to make a really nice dinner of lamb shanks over eggplant/tomatoes/onion with a carrot-parsnip puree on the side.
Sunday DD had CCD and basketball and then needed to scout supplies for a big group project at school. It became clear during the day that our male cat is having urinary issues so we all started worrying about that. Vet opens in 30' so I hope she can see us ASAP. We mostly hung out around running the errands. I made a pot roast with winter squash and brussels sprouts for dinner. It really was a wasted day - anxiety. BUT at least I didn't feed the anxiety with bad food!
I've been struggling to get my weight comfortably in the 124-126 range. I get under 126 every week but pop back up over the weekend. This weekend I decided to skip the beer. I *know* I bloat every time I drink a beer and I looooove fall beers but I really think that my weekend beer is a big part of the reason why I'm not maintaining 124-126. Low and behold I've been under 126 for 4 days straight now! I'm thinking no more beer until Thanksgiving (if then).
This week is going to be crazy.
Monday -vet visit which may mean no gym visit (but I can do a home workout), grocery shopping, lots of kid ferrying, some friend ferrying, DH gone for dinner so the evening will be odd, and then I *am* watching tonight's debate. MUST do laundry.
Tuesday - book fair work, run at the gym, PTA work, kid ferrying. MUST clean the house.
Wednesday - gym workout, book fair, kid ferrying (they get out at 10:45AM), make-ahead dinner, PT appointments for the kids, book fair during and after dinner hours.
Thursday - gym workout, another early release for the kids, friend ferrying, another evening book fair PLUS packing up. DH will bring us dinner at the book fair because it's so long that night.
Friday - home workout, put out fires I've not addressed earlier, volunteer all afternoon at the school
And my house is a wreck!!!!! I have GOT to address it. And goodness knows just how sick my poor kitty is and just how much rearranging I will have to do to make sure he gets everything he needs this week.

9. 5 Questions for someone famous dead or alive.
I really, really, really have no idea on this one. Someone famous? I usually don't care much about 'famous' people - at least if famous = celebrity.
So.... I'll go with President Obama. And I am going to ASSUME that, for this challenge, he has to tell me the true. No spin. I want to know what he'd say in private to his wife in answer to these questions.
1. What will your administration do to get recent college graduates employed full-time in the fields they are trained to work in? What will your administration do to get those who have lost their jobs back to work?
