Filet of Sole

Yesterday is nothing but a blur. After dropping V off at the sitter I came home, quickly made some breakfast while the baby was passed out in his car seat and took a shower. Before I knew it I had to leave for my doctor appointment. As usual I was at the doctor's for over an hour! And when I left the office it was just past 11am. I had a few errands to run so I headed straight to the bank to deposit some money and then I needed to go to Target to pick up stuff like diapers and formula as well as getting a prescription filled. By the time I got home it was just after 12.30pm and V needed to eat. Fed the baby, coddled and played with him and when I had a spare moment tried to eat, fold two loads of laundry and threw in a load of whites to wash. As quick as a blink it was 3pm and I still hadn't eaten a real meal and I had one more errand before picking up my other men. I grabbed something quick to eat, got myself and V together and ran my last errand at Whole Foods before heading to T's office. I can't believe how quickly the day flew by. I was exhausted but felt like I didn't really do anything. T and I were talking and I was explaining how exhausting my day was and how I felt that being at home was a more demanding job then actually doing my real office job. My hat goes off to every stay at home parent out there!

So today T took the day off to stay at home and chill and we took both babies to the sitter. I miss my at home buddy V. Im a little sad. Of course I miss K too but I'm so accustomed to him going to the sitters that it's really business as usual to have him gone for the day. The sitter has her three grandkids visitig today so K will have a lot of playmates to hangout with. T"s version of taking advantage of our child-free day mainly involves sleeping. I have other plans. I'm going to take a super long, hot shower. Go to the "Nail Forum" on Glendale Blvd. for a manicure and spa pedicure. Organize my playlists in Itunes. Watch all the stuff I Tivoed that I haven't gotten to watch yet. Specifically last week's Lost. And obsess over all the magazines I got in the mail that I really only got to skim through.

After we dropped the kids off at the sitters we stopped off for some breakfast at the Toasted Bun
Restaurant. I don't know how many times we drove by California and Glendale and never even noticed the coffee shop. It wasn't until we went to the Coffee Bean over the weekend that we realized it was there. It's a tiny little coffee shop but so good. I'm a huge fan of diner/coffee shop eateries and to find a cute little place with really sweet waitresses not far from were I live was awesome! I was surprised the T ordered Huevos Rancheros cause he's normally and omelette/scramble kind of guy. I love Huevor Rancheros but I only ever order it from Millies. I can't rave about it enought. Huge prortion (to huge even), black beans smoothered in mole sauce (yum!), eggs of course, tortilla of course, and a big 'ol scoop of homemade salsa and guacamole!

Ok what did I eat yesterday:
7.45am - 2 eggs, english muffin with peanut butter
12.45pm - diet coke and an english muffin
2pm - 1 rice krispy treat and a couple of lemon cookies
3pm - waffles
6.30pm - sole fillet with orange brown butter sauce (recipe via cookie mag*) and mashed potatos.

*Cookie Mag - If you haven't seen it: Such a great parent-type magazine. It's like Parents type magazine with more of a design slant to it. Kids fashions are not Gap fare. Toys go beyond Sassy brand. And Gear is very Euro. It's a cool magazine that I enjoy looking at although can't afford most of the stuff in it but I love looking at it.

  1. This sounds so familiar... how the day goes by so fast and you have nothing to show for it. I can't believe I go back to work on Monday. I have loved my brief stint as a stay-at-home-mom and will really miss it.
