SUNDAY FUNDAY!

SUNDAY FUNDAY might be a bit misleading. Well, I’ll be honest, it wasn’t THAT fun of a day. Like it was pretty average. Ya know how sometimes the tone is just off? Everyone was a little on edge, a little more snark, a little more irritability, but we tried to make the best of it.

Craig got two of his wisdom teeth out on Saturday morning, Craig’s parents came over to help get him to the oral surgeon because I had to work the night before. He was not a happy camper this weekend to put it mildly. We really appreciated Craig’s parents helping us out.

Sunday was a cleaning/laundry day. The boys didn’t get that memo. They were set on dragging out every toy we’ve ever had and Carver “gave” me about 20 different Lego creations that all required 20 different “CLOSE YOUR EYES MOM! OKAY NOW OPEN YOURS EYES! I MADE THIS FOR YOU!” reactions. These boys are OBSESSED with Legos. They’ve taken over the house.

I made my favorite protein pancakes for breakfast – I LOVE any kind of Kodiak products – low glycemic index, lower carbs, and packed with protein! I added low carb chocolate ships and all natural maple syrup to top it off! YUM!

When Craig and I went shopping last Wednesday on our first day out of quarantine, we were in the grocery store and Craig got REALLY excited when he saw these little personal pizzas – he collected ALL the ingredients and was so excited to make these with the boys.

I picked a protein packed crust. We cooked up fresh mushrooms, turkey pepperoni, I added goat cheese to mine, and we had so much fun! Gannon was still super cranky from too short of a nap but he perked up when it came time to show down.

We’ve got a busy week ahead of us, I filled out our weekly schedule board and we are ready for a big week!

What’s on your schedule for the week? Thanks for reading friends!

    Wow that is a busy week ahead, glad you had plenty of protein to keep up. Its not a lot of fun to have your wisdom teeth removed as an adult, hope the recovery goes well for Craig, Those personnel pizza’s look pretty tasty. I spent most of last week cleaning windows, washing curtains and then getting all of our doors scrubbed. My shoulders are not used to so much work in two days, now i need a massage. Enjoy your week ahead.

    Poor Craig! When I had my wisdom teeth out when I was 16, I went into the hospital the night before and stayed the night of my surgery as well. I had all four done at the same time and ended up with lovely chipmunk cheeks!! I remember being wheeled through the waiting room to my room and I mother asked if that was me!! I got really sick from all the blood I swallowed during the surgery and ended up needing medication to stop that. Insurance would only cover the removal if I was in the hospital and I was glad I was there. Just hope he doesn’t end up with dry socket…that is pure hell. I’m sure he is feeling better now then he did on Sunday, but he will still appreciate some TLC from his personal nurse! I’ll just be staying home this week, as we are getting dumped on with snow – about 8″ last night and it is coming down again. Gotta love the heavy Sierra cement!!
