Slow Days

We've been having some slow days around here.  Not the bad kind of slow days.  We've had the good kind of slow days that are good for the soul.  The kind that leave you feeling refreshed and CAUGHT UP for once in a blue moon. (By the way, what in the world does the phrase "Once in a blue moon" really mean??)  Ellington and I have been thoroughly enjoying our little break from school.  I long for being back home full time, but that's just not in the cards right now.  Working part-time is our short term plan to make staying home possible for the long term.  So, I take this precious time with at home with Ellington and treasure it. 

Let's see...what have we been up to?  Grocery shopping.  Playing at the park.  Playing at home.  Cooking.  Cleaning.  Working on letters with our new flash cards (I get how insane that sounds because E is only 19 months but she is ALL about letters right I'm going with it!).  Strolling.  Exploring.  Exercising (I walk 2-3 miles before E wakes up and do The Shred dvd after she goes to bed).  Missing Daddy (he's been working a lot this week). 

I have actually cooked all three meals for all three days this week.  I realize that probably isn't a big deal to most people, but unfortunately we are REALLY REALLY bad about going out to eat.  I have made cooking a priority this week...and not just any cooking, but really healthy meals.  I am proud and I AM going to keep it up! 

Today was our slowest of slow days.  We didn't leave the house at all.  In fact, Ellington never even got out of her pjs.

She did, however, need a tutu and jewelry for part of the day.  She just doesn't feel herself if she isn't all glitzed up!

So, that's been our week!  If you are reading this leave me a comment and tell me 3 things you've done this week!  (This is a challenge to see who's out there...I haven't heard from most of you in awhile!)
