Yay, it’s Monday! I might be in the minority, but I love Mondays. It’s my most productive day of the week; too bad my motivation drops right around Wednesday. We’ll see how today goes, though; my routine is all messed up because our washer decided to die on us, and my mom is amazing and is letting me wash our clothes at her house until we get a new one. I’m sure it’s quite a sight to watch me load up a car full of dirty laundry with a toddler trying to help!
On to my shopping trip! I’m back to 4 different stores this week; I can’t pass up a sale, especially now that we have extra money and I need to build my stockpile again. I’m also still trying to balance making healthy meals with making what we really want to eat. It’s also hard when you have a toddler whose main food group is carbs and won’t eat what I give her for dinner anyway. Every time I think about wanting to convert to full clean eating, I think “Or I could just eat a pizza”…. life is all about balance! Let’s get to what I bought this week.
