And actually logging it. I need to get back in the habit and take care of myself instead of everyone and everything else first.
Getting some decent sleep last night for the first time in forever helped. I got home after 11 from picking son up from school trip last night. When I crashed, I really crashed. I didn't roll out of bed (to stay up) until 10:30 this morning. I really needed the rest. I still feel sleepy, but I plan to just tough it out and go to bed early tonight.
I have a LONG weekend ahead of me. Son turns 16 on Sunday. He is having a few friends over (invited before I was asked?! Ugh.) One of whom is a pescatarian(?? What the heck is that? Some form of vegetarian, from what I gather. He eats seafood and eggs, though.)
So, the plan is: bake a monkey shaped cake (I bought the pan in green bay last week, along with decorating tools and icing coloring) put it on one of the platters from my wedding (thank God I kept them. You should have seen me trying to figure out what I was going to put the cake on!) Decorate the cake. Make son clean firepit BEFORE Sunday (yeah, I will probably be out there with a shovel Saturday night) get firewood, make food.
The party menu? Monkey cake, ice cream cups (cra*, gotta go get those!) Hot dogs and brats (dang, need buns too!), homemade crab salad (rainbow rotini, fat free miracle whip, peas, crab meat), devilled eggs, veggies with dip, homemade baked beans (can't use canned pork&beans because of the vegan kid) *crud! Gotta go get those cooking, oh wait, I can do that tomorrow*, tortilla chips and salsa, bottled water-with assorted flavorings available, limited amount of soda.
And I still plan to go workout tomorrow. Yeah, I'm gonna need more sleep!
