I’m apparently getting old and am losing my endurance for high levels of activity.
After our busy, fun-filled day on Friday, I just felt kinda lazy yesterday. It was another gorgeous day, and part of me felt like we should be heading out again somewhere to cherish it!! I briefly contemplated going hiking, biking, corn mazing, etc…but then decided, “Nah.”
I think my #1 deterrent is just that everyone wants to get out to enjoy the leaves and weather on the weekends, in the fall. From past experience, I feel like every beautiful place around ends up packed with people ALL trying to cherish and enjoy it, and I just wasn’t in the mood for that. (This is probably an exaggeration…I’m sure it would have been fine. I just know that the State Parks, pumpkin patches, etc DO get really busy.)
We still had a nice day, we just didn’t do anything photo-worthy this time. 🙂
My day in review:
- Asher and I went in the hot tub together in the morning. It was gorgeous out!
- Then, he had swim practice at 9:30. The drive out actually WAS beautiful, 20 minutes out into the country. I also went for a 20 min. walk during this time/listened to a podcast and spent the rest of the time in my car reading. Quite nice!
- We all cleaned our rooms! Ours needed it badly. In the afternoon, Ivan and I tag-teamed and washed our bedroom windows too (also badly needed it).
- We went out as a family for a late lunch at Ivan’s friend’s Mexican restaurant (I’ve mentioned before) and had those delicious nachos that we love so much.
- I helped Asher practice piano/ work on a new piece
- Ethan is too cool for school these days and spent most of the afternoon/ evening at a friend’s house nearby where they were having a bonfire…he is suddenly REALLY into spending time a LOT of time w/ friends lately.
- Watched a couple episodes of our show with Ivan after lunch
- Updated our new October budget spreadsheet
- Did a Core Inferno abs/core workout
- Ended the night with a movie night in our room- just me, Ivan and Asher (until Ethan got home midway through and crashed it). We watched an Amazon Original called “My Spy” about a little girl and an undercover CIA agent…it was really good! Very funny.
- I made it through the movie (win!) and then promptly fell asleep and ended up sleeping the entire night on top of the blankets with my sweatshirt, leggings, socks, and contact lenses in. I vaguely remember Ivan poking at me to wake me up to go brush my teeth but I must have ignored him.
