Documenting the everyday

Today is #OneDayHH day on instagram. It’s a thing Laura Tremaine, formerly of the Hollywood Housewife blog, came up with a few years ago in which you take pictures of what you’re doing all day long and post them to instagram, kind of like what we all do normally but on a more regular schedule and with a cohesive hashtag.

I love the project, and this is the fifth year I’d done it! In 2014 my day was mostly laundry and schoolwork with the kids, in 2015 we were fighting colds, in 2016 we watched my favorite baseball game of all time, and last year found us homeschooling, going to the library and introducing Poppy to “Stranger Things.”

What will #OneDayHH have in store for us in 2018? Let’s find out!

Eleven

Today my tiny baby boy turned 11 years old, and we celebrated at a trampoline park with several of his friends. They were all worn out by the end of the evening, as was I, even though I jumped nary a jump.

Happy birthday, Petey. You’re my favorite boy in the whole wide world.

It’s Election Day and I want to eat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for dinner

Today is Midterm Election Day in America, and it’s kind of a big deal. We talked about that yesterday, though, and I am trying not to spin the wheels of anxiety thinking about that. I’m also trying to be more mindful about eating my feelings, so instead of diving into a big pile of Halloween candy let’s talk about our menu for the week.

Monday: Crab cakes

Everyone else was elsewhere for dinner last night, so I bought myself some crab cakes from Publix and had a nice and tasty little dinner all alone. It was not unpleasant.

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Bacon Apple BBQ Chicken
It almost takes longer to type the name of the recipe than it does to prepare it. Not really, though, because I have to peel and chop five apples and I am slow at that.

Wednesday: Poppyseed Chicken
Wednesday is Pete’s birthday, and this is what he wanted for dinner. I haven’t made it in a long time because it’s chock-full of sour cream and I don’t eat dairy anymore. I have not decided if I’m going to pop some Lactaid and go for it or not.

Thursday: Undetermined
The kids have play practice and we’ll have guests visiting, so we may go out.

Friday: Frozen pizzas
Fancy Friday, as always.
