Y’all, Thursdays be CRAZY. Went to the gym this morning, attempted to clean the house, met Brian for lunch, picked up Isla (my mom picks Jack up most Thursdays) and rushed home to get her dressed for ballet, took her to ballet, dropped off dinner with a friend who just had a sweet baby boy, came home and heated up the kids’ dinner, then as soon as Brian pulled up I rushed out the door to a 100 Women meeting. It’s been pretty much nonstop and I’m dyyyyyying because we haven’t watched This Is Us yet and I’m trying to avoid spoilers.
OH! So my newest obsession? Podcasts! As usual, I’m so late to the game on this. I spend a fair amount of time either in the car by myself or in the kitchen cooking. I can’t see our TV from the kitchen so I used to listen to Pandora, but just recently I’ve gotten hooked on 2 podcasts (I listen through our Amazon Echo). First- Missing Richard Simmons. Y’ALL. I swear this the new Serial. It’s fascinating!! There have only been two episodes so far and they’re fairly short, so it’s easy to catch up. I keep trying to talk to Brian about it and he looks at me like I have three heads. Just trust me, it’s good.
Also- My Favorite Murder. It’s so creepy and weird, but again, fascinating. Probably not for everyone but I love the whole psychology/true crime aspect.
What else should I be listening to? I listened to a Stuff You Should Know episode about artificial sweeteners today and then felt really guilty filling up my Diet Coke at lunch. And yet I still drank it.
For dinner tonight I made the sloppy joe meatballs from my Primal Cravings cookbook. I always go back to that recipe- it’s so good and Jack likes the meatballs. It’s technically a paleo recipe but I serve them on Hawaiian buns to make little meatball sliders. I don’t have a good pic but I’ve made them a million times so if you want to see just type “sloppy joe meatballs” in my search bar.
Yay for Friday! Have a great weekend!
