Weekending & Shizz [3-6]8:07 AM
+ Friday's acupuncture appointment was awesome, as always. After explaining my back troubles, my acupuncturist inserted a needle right into the epicenter of the trauma which startled me because it was a simultaneous painful and relieving feeling...hard to explain. She stuck a bunch of needles into my lower and middle back as well as my shoulders, followed it with some cupping and my back feels so much better; even Saturday's muay thai class didn't cause as much pain as it usually does. I have 4 more treatments lined up and fully expect to be healed by then.
+ Every Sunday we go to the inlaws for dinner and it's your typical european family dinner (aka enough food to feed a small city). My FIL loves to pickle his own vegetables/fruits and yesterday we had something new: pickled cantaloupe! The only pickled fruit I've had was watermelon (so good) and this was equally delicious - sweet yet tart.
+ I like to take at least 1 hour every weekend after errands to read or do something quiet...which is sort of hard to do with an 8yr old running around so we've designated 1hr hour of quiet time for the family to each do what we please so the husband usually goes downstairs to fiddle with his bike things, I read or crochet and Kayla reads, draws or plays in her room.
This weekend it was wine and my book but guys, I'm struggling with this. I know it's supposed to be a murder/mystery and while the plot seems so good and there are parts that are good, there are other parts that are so slow.... like, get on with the fucking story already. I've invested so much time in this book that I feel like I have to keep reading because I think at any point, things will be revealed that will blow me away and make all this time I've spent reading it totally worth it.
What angers me even more is that I bought this book but I'm also half disappointed so I'm debating - should I return it? should I keep going? It's not available at my library (at all) which is partially why I still have it #firstworldproblems.
+ My muay thai gym started a new parent and tot program - parents can workout with their kids! Here, Kayla and I were doing hi-five pushups.
+ Baking on Sunday afternoons is one of my favourite things to do. I turn on some music, go through my recipe box and pick the things I want to make for the week.
This week I'll be eating paleo carrot & walnut loaf...one of my favourite breads to have for breakfast.
+ Kayla came down with a mild stomach virus on Thursday so she spent Friday at home and will be at home this morning. Poor thing had the runs all weekend but she's feeling much better now. It was actually nice not to have to rush around to get her ready for school this morning but instead, we cuddled and talked...one of my favourite things to do when she wakes up and jumps into my bed.
+ My husband leaves for his cycling training trip to California on Thursday ... which means I have to get up at 4:15 am to drive him to the airport for 5am and hopefully make it back on time to get Kayla ready/drop her off at school and then leave for work....not to mention the weather forecast predicts rain AND snow that morning.
How was your weekend?
