Well today is Hump Day and a snow day. I wish I were home with the Peanut today! Unfortunately, since school is cancelled and my mother is a teacher at the school Peanut goes to........ THEY got to stay home and I had to go to work! As always, customers before our safety!
We are supposed to get about 4-7 inches in my area and the further south you get into Rhode Island the more snow you get. I hate driving in the snow even with my big old SUV, so I hope my boss (who happens to drive a huge truck) gets a clue and sends the women home early like he did last year. Cross your fingers!!!!!!!!!!!
So yesterday I went to run my errands at lunch time and I get a call from my mom. The Peanut was sick! She had a fever and was feeling nauseated. So after clearing a few things off my desk when I got back I left again and picked her up.
Normal mothers would have taken their child directly home to bed.
Normal mothers would given their child with a fever Tylenol and chicken soup as soon as they woke up from said nap.
I am not. a. normal. mother!
I dragged my sick kid to Target and Hannafords instead. Here's the swag!
I know my daughter all too well and figured she would perk up with some Tylenol and brownies : )
This was my first time trying the Gluten-Free Pantry brownies and they did not disappoint! I thought they were going to come out crappy because the batter was SUPER SUPER thick- I could barely stir it around, but once I managed to spread the batter into the little pan we have, it was all good. We added butterscotch chips to the mix because... well.. just because.
After all that, I let the Peanut add whatever toppings to her brownie that she wanted. I repeat, I'm not a normal mother!
Later on in the day between the hours of 5 and 6, I did yoga. Has anyone ever done Kundalini Yoga? I have several Ana Bret and Ravi Singh DVDs and boy are they a hoot. Their workouts are incredible- both uplifting and hard to do. But they are goofy. The DVD format is: Ana doing the moves and Ravi doing the voice over. Then Ana does the voice over. My favorite line is in the beginning: "Be kind to yourself and grind." OH YEA BABY! But anyway I only lasted about 20 minutes before I fell over laughing, my 15 year old brain was not doing too well I guess! I did also do a power yoga tape (yes, I still have tapes! lol) that I LOVE. MTV Power Yoga with Kristin McGee- she is GREAT. Still my favorite tape after all these years (made circa 2001).
What else did I do? Oh yea! For dinner I had a brownie sundae! I'm such a wonderful example of perfect health right? Katie, here are the pictures! I've been craving a brownie sundae since I saw one that she posted up!
YUMMMMMMMMMMMM... perfect ending to the night. I did end up eating a snack later on, apples and peanut butter.. But I was just totally feeling a smaller dinner and just really wanted a sundae! Don't hate me!
So what's been going on with my knee? I don't know! It hurts though! I want to say I sprained it? But I can't say for sure without hitting up the doctors office and shelling out 500 dollars for an MRI. Yes, Virginia, there are people who pay out of pocket for medical treatments... I went to dance class with my knee brace on and it wasn't TOO bad. But then the yesterday I got up and BAM- I was limping around like an old lady.
My SIL and I are supposed to be going out on Thursday night (dancing.. it's what we do best. ha!) and I'm not sure I should dance that much. HMMMMMMMMMMM... what to do??
Anyway! I hope all my lovelies in the southern states are having fun digging out from the snow. I'll be doing that later! Have an awesome awesome day!
