Days 1 and 2 Of My Husband-less Week

  • Calder is on spring break this week, so he headed down to Honduras with his dad, brother, and my dad to spend a week on a live aboard dive trip. Unfortunately, there is no spring break in actual jobs (or internships, for that matter) and I don't dive, so I'm staying here. I dropped him off at the airport at 5:00 Saturday and have been on my own ever since.
  • This is what I have done with myself so far.
  • Saturday I slept until 10:30 (after I came home, found my missing debit card, and fell asleep again)
  • Cleaned the part of the house that guests see (didn't touch the bedrooms!)
  • Decided on what to cook for dinner (chicken enchiladas, Spanish rice, and Oreo cheesecake)
  • Went to Target for groceries (I LOVE Target, and absolutely despise the regular grocery store here)
  • Cooked dinner/cleaned some more - my cheesecake was a total failure, enchiladas weren't the best ever, rice was delicious
  • Had two friends over for dinner
  • Saw Jane Eyre at the Guthrie Theater. It was my first time to see the Guthrie and it is a really neat building. There is a balcony on the backside that overlooks a really pretty arch bridge. Hopefully I'll make it back out there and take some pictures. The play was great, I absolutely loved it! And I got half price tickets, so that made it even better.

  • This morning I woke up I managed to wake up on time for church. Calder always wakes me up, so I was worried about falling back into my snooze-button addiction.
  • Bribed my primary class with oreos left over from the failed cheesecake. I've started putting the treat on the chalkboard ledge at the beginning of class, so they have to look at it the whole time. It worked well at first, but I think they've figured out that they'd really have to do something serious for me to not give them the treat. I'm way too nice.
  • Watched some TV
  • Played some Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii. I haven't played in awhile, so that was kind of fun.
  • Did some work for the physics class I'm taking online from BYU. I'm now to lesson 4 of 24. I've been averaging about 1 lesson every month, so I plan on hitting that hardcore this week.
  • Got on our elliptical machine. I am so out of shape. Halfway through I figured I could play Wii while on the elliptical. It was a little hard since I kept hitting the handles, but it made the workout go a lot faster having something to concentrate on.
  • Ate dinner at the table, which we hardly ever do. We have so little time together at home during the week, we usually combine dinner with TV time. The table was still set from Saturday and it was so cute I couldn't resist.

So in summary, a very productive and fun Saturday, and a relaxing and unproductive Sunday.

Hi Ivy, cute blog! Sounds like you're having a fun week while Calder is diving. No white Easter here but the weather is the pits. I wanna go back to Disneyland where it's sunny & cool!

BTW, I'm right with you on lovin' Target. I buy nearly everything there, or Sam's and Krogers.
