I got D1 up at 8:30 so we could officially start our day. We had breakfast and I completed my morning routine of coffee, emptying the dishwasher and checking emails. D2 started rubbing her eyes at about 10:15 so I took note and put her in her crib for her nap. She slept until 12:30 and by that time I had decided that I wanted to hit the streets. My Keurig Vue will arrive via FedEx tomorrow so I wanted to get to Bed Bath & Beyond to stock up on some Vue Cups. CAN NOT WAIT. We also had to hit Jaworski's deli (BEST place on the planet!!) to pick up the traditional Polish staple for easter. We make a soup called Borscht and serve it with kielbasa and pirogues. I will be posting pics!
Next stop was the grocery store. D1's new thing is to drive the 'car cart'. She LOVES it and frankly, if she is going to behave and enjoy it... GOOD. I had prepped for our trip by making a list as well as clipping coupons. Happily our original total was $158 and I walked out paying $106. SCORE. It was nap time upon our arrival home. I made dinner and sat on my rear for a bit. Dinner was really good. Here's the recipe.
Hoping to get a good nights sleep and get a run in tomorrow morning... fingers crossed!!!
