Today hubby went back to work after 11 days off. I love getting to spend those days with him especially if we are at home with no special plans. Just laying around and watching movies or working in the yard. We actually didn't get too many of those but together time is special.
But I have to admit that with him back at work this morning and one daughter back at school, I felt my routine restored. Up early spending some time on the computer with my yummy coffee and then comes 7:00 am and I am up and at my chores. Start a load of laundry, unload the dishwasher, wipe the kitchen down and mop the floors after all the holiday and birthday gatherings. I have imposed the 7:00 am cut off so that I don't spend the entire morning on the computer not only ignoring chores but sedentary as well. Up and moving. Did you know you burn almost 200 calories mopping your kitchen floor? Good exercise and a clean kitchen. Bliss.
Here is a tip for you. If you have any egg nog left, use it in pancakes or another baking recipe. Yum! They were delicious. Don't want to throw any food away. I froze the last bit for the next time I am making pancakes.
