TGIF v.54

I had to scroll all the way back to July to figure out which edition of TGIF this was. I don’t know if that’s a sign that I’ve been busy or lazy … Either way, here’s a recap of our crazy first week back to school!

A high of the week was getting back into the routine of getting ready for school with relative ease. During the summer our mornings were suuuuper lazy, so I was afraid that Isla would have a hard time adjusting, but so far she seems to be doing well! It’s even been nice enough to walk to school in the morning, so we’ve been enjoying that as well!

A low of the week was nothing, really! My arm is really sore for some reason but I have an appointment with an RMT next week so hopefully that solves most of the discomfort in my muscles.

An internet find I loved was not necessarily a “find” but I’ve started watching Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix and have been really enjoying it. Timothy Olyphant is one of my favourites, so that’s perhaps why …

The best money I spent was $5 on some axes for Kyle. While it sounds like of odd, Kyle has started refurbishing old axe heads and handles and he’s gotten pretty darn good at it.

My favourite Isla and/or Norah moment was obviously getting them back in the school routine. Norah has been a bit sad leaving Isla at school, but she’s getting used to it. Plus she started Kinder Ninja training yesterday, (think American Ninja Warrior) so she finally has her own activity to go to while her sister is at school.

Of course, here’s an obligatory “First Day Back” photo I snapped of both the girls:


A song that has been stuck in my head is none, actually! Thank goodness.

My notable meals of the week were my delicious lunch of spinach with cherry tomatoes, orzo, shredded mozzarella, and balsamic vinaigrette. SO GOOD. And you know, kind of healthy too because life’s all about balance and stuff. *snort*

My plans for the weekend are relaxing Saturday and then I’m heading to Sun Peaks on Sunday for the Dirty Feet Trail Race! It’ll be my first legit trail race so I’m curious to see how my time will compare to my road races. Wish me luck!

What are you plans for the weekend? Have you been enjoying the last bit of summer weather?
