The Answer is Laundry

Yesterday started with a three mile run and then a one mile walk with my two favorite girls.

As soon as I got home, I went straight downstairs and lifted some weights.

As soon as I was done, Justin headed out to play golf with his Dad and I got busy getting everyone ready for their day.

Once they were on their way, I grabbed some oats with protein.

I got busy on some laundry (what’s new?).  In fact, if you ever think, “I wonder what Stacy is doing right now?”  It’s laundry.  As I type this post, I am staring at folded laundry from yesterday that has to be put away.

Drat.

Isn’t it funny how we can take the simplest of household jobs and turn them into something despicable.

For example, I really don’t mind washing, drying and folding laundry, but I DESPISE putting it away! Really?  Like it’s the most horrendous job in life?

Or, I don’t mind loading and unloading the dishwasher, but if a cookie sheet needs to be hand washed, it may sit on the counter for a week.

Shame.

I whipped up some pancakes, to avoid putting laundry away, and topped them with natural peanut butter and honey.

For Lunch

I grilled those chicken sausages I talked about yesterday and roasted some green beans for the side (plain yellow mustard is in the little cup).

For the dreaded 3pm snack, I caved and ate some chips and cheese with salsa.

Dinner was a Hamburger Helper knock off.  I used gluten free noodles, ground beef, cream of mushroom soup and peas.

It was delicious!

I wrapped up the day with some quality TV (Pretty Woman) and was fast asleep by 9:30pm!

I better get back to my laundry.

P.S. I am using Pic Monkey for my picture craziness.
