I'm eating my breakfast, trying to motivate myself to work. I'm frustrated that the new employee keeps getting assigned all these other task and reports. She's taking over my duties while I'm on leave and has yet to be trained on the major stuff. Shrug, I've voiced my concern...I won't be around 3 months so someone else's problem.
My sister offered to babysit Leo so DH and I can have a date night in a couple weeks. She said she's offering her services before it involves taking care of 2. I couldn't decide if we should do our usual steak house downtown or do something new. I don't want to just eat and go home. At the moment we're thinking of trying a new steak house in the burbs and then hitting the casino. I'm so happy that the Chicago casino is no smoking.
Not much here today. It is going to be cloudy and rainy, I think I might go to the grocery store and make DH stay with the kids so I can go by myself. We had a cow butchered and split it with DHs uncle so now I am looking for new beef recipes. We never usually have beef but with cattle prices where they are now it was hard to pass up (one of the perks of living in Nebraska, everybody raises cows) Tl;Dr looking for new beef recipes!
Took lo to the mall because Build a Bear was having $5 bears today and I thought it'd be a fun thing for us to do. So did everyone else... the line was insane. We waited for a bit until another mom told me we could buy an unstuffed bear and come back another day to make it. That's exactly what we did. Lo was over waiting in line. Lol He hit a wall right before nap and was just melting down. Hopefully he takes a good nap today. We have a bbq to go to tonight and it'll probably be a later night than usual for him.
littlelion have fun on your date night! nemomof2 I second the beef stew. I've also been taking our ground round and making big batches of meatballs and freezing them. So much better than the pre-made ones. We make meatball stroganoff with ours and honey garlic meatballs.
So happy the first week of school is done, but now the real work begins! Overall my students are really good, but unfortunately I got my first bit of attitude today and had to use it as an opportunity to set the tone for our class.
A friend from mom group watched F for me today since my daycare provider is no longer working Fridays and both grandmas were busy. She had a great time with her friends and I loved getting updates throughout the day
