E.'s first day of school. The morning started at 6:15 when my alarm went off (technically it started at 5 am when I got up and ripped the plug for L's monitor out of the wall socket!). I got up and collected E. from his bed where he pretended to be sleeping. I could tell he was excited and anxious today. He didn't eat any breakfast and raced around like a whirling Dervish.
That first cup of coffee never tasted better!
Got E. to school a few minutes early so that he could hook up with his school buddies. Half of which were in his new class. The Gate Moms officially hate E.'s new teacher because she is 16 and skinny!! Ok we don't hate her...we just want too LOL
E. had the best day. He came out happy and ran up to L. and yelled hello and I love you! Then proceeded to tell Daddy all about how he loved his first day while I had to run back into the classroom to collect his baseball cap. We walked home hand-in-hand with E. sharing snippets of his day.
Its super quiet in the house now. hubby is working from home on his laptop here on the couch. L is almost sleeping in the arm chair watching "Yo Gabba Gabba" and E. has disappeared upstairs to play with his play dough universe. Sigh.... a very exciting morning.
The plan for the day:
Breakfast: 2 slices of Ezekiel toast with almond butter and banana, coffee and vitamins
Snack: 1/2 cup 2% cottage cheese with blue berry compote
Lunch: Half a baked sweet potato topped with turkey chili & low fat sour cream, an apple and non-sweetened decaf ice tea with lemon slices.
Dinner: Grilled Pork loin, spinach and nectarine salad and a glass of skim milk.
After run snack: Popcorn & Diet coke.
Run Club tonight! Yay! Looking forward to seeing everyone and getting out to stretch my legs.
