I don’t have a clue what I did last week, or where I would begin writing a post for Week in Review hosted by Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets. I feel like I didn’t accomplish anything! I recall going to Kylah’s volleyball games, but I didn’t take photo proof. My good friend Christy came over on Monday night for wine and snacks; that girl is just so good for my soul.
I’m still eating a shit tonne of veggies. If it’s not a big bowl of salted roasted broccoli, it’s a huge salad or even a bowl of Amy’s veggies soup. Maybe it’s not as many veggies as you guys eat, but it’s 100% more than I used to consume! The God honest truth is that I used to go not just days, not just weeks, but MONTHS without eating a single baby carrot or banana. That is THE TRUTH. Crazy, eh? And the main difference I notice is in my fingernails. They used to be paper thin and brittle and now they feel like steel. Imagine how my new way of eating has affected other body parts and organs that I can’t see! Pretty cool.
Anyway, enough about that. I got some work done on my arm. Christy came in to keep me company (photo above) and then my sister Tracey stopped by to hang out for a while too! It was such a great day, and I’m thankful that Andrew was able to cover me while I took this time to myself.
If you’re curious about the turtle, you can read about it here.
Andrew got work done on his arm too but I don’t have any good photos of it yet. I’ll take some today!
We went to our counselor on Wednesday to talk about our inability to deal with conflict without completely losing our shit. Our counselor is the guy who married us, so we feel so safe in there with him and he helped us a whole lot in that hour of time we saw him. Maybe I’ll write about it later this week sometime. Thank you Kristen for babysitting Callum while we went for counseling!
Friday night was a bit crazy. Andrew was getting his ink done and so I had to pick up Kylah, drop her off at home, take Katie to dance, book it over to the tattoo shop to check out a sketch, make it back to Abbotsford to get Katie at 6 and then pick Kylah up at home and bring her to Chilliwack for her soccer game at 7. A lot of drive-thrus happened that night; good thing I had my veggies earlier that day!
We spent the day yesterday down at Whidbey Island to visit Andrew’s parents; they’re camping in their trailer there. To say Callum loves Grandpa and Grandma Slane is an understatement. He played hopscotch with Grandma:
And kept their kitty cat company in the trailer:
While Andrew and his dad worked on the juiciest burgers ever:
Another week has begun! Today is the anniversary of the day Andrew and I got all our kids and family together for our commitment dinner two years ago! We’re going to pull out the video sometime today and watch it. But first, I need to get out of my pajamas and brush my teeth.
Have you ever seen a counselor? Hate it or love it?
What’s the coolest thing you did last week?
What’s the longest you’ve gone without eating vegetables?
