What a Week!

I knew it was coming. I saw our schedule and prepared for the hectic week. Most of you know that I don't like to be busy during the week. We are all happier when we have an open and flexible calendar. We actually get so much more accomplished when our week is less cluttered. As I've learned from living in a small space....sometimes you can't avoid clutter {in your small space or your week}. I also wanted to upload some photos that were lingering in my camera.......
A couple of Saturdays ago we went to Waterloo Village {somewhere out in NJ bear country}. It was a beautiful, sunny day. We met up with a friend from the boys bowling league and hit the trails.
After walking through a very old log cabin and playing some games from the Pilgrim years, Greg and the boys declared that they would love to live back "in those days".
But, they obviously would miss all their modern conveniences, too. The boys have been enjoying playing the game Headbanz.

So, we got through the week. The boys tried a fun new fitness class {Capeoira}. If you click on the link you can see exactly what it is. They also went to a ZumbAtomic class. We are always looking for fun new ways to get moving.

I'd say the week was good.....until Friday. My Friday was exhausting....and frustrating.....and stressful. It rated high on the yuck-o-meter. While Greg and the boys were at CSB I went to run some errands and found this mug. I thought it was the perfect purchase for an imperfect day.

How do you deal with a bad day?

That little field trip sounds fun. We love the game Headbandz and boo for yucky days! I love the saying "Keep Calm and Carry On". It's been my motto all year, I bought a giant wall hanging in January that suited what was happening at the time (I'll have to tell you about that through email) Lol. Have a fabulous week, but I'm sure it's not going to slow down...or at least mine's not. Christmas is coming way too fast. Jessica

I'd love to say that I take bad days in stride, but that would probably only account for 1% of bad days. *clears throat and looks away*

That being the case, I'll refrain from answering that question.

On another note... cool field trip! :D

I think we all need a cup in a our cupboard for days like that! On those days for me, I have to have some ALONE time. Time to regroup, refocus, and like your cup says...calm down and carry on!

Look like your boys have continued to have some fun adventures!
