Isn't it Ironic...Dontcha Think

It's ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife....It's getting an email from your kid's room mom when you just left Target....

I'm having one of those days. Leave Target, get an email from a room mom. Luckily I only replied to her when I offered to bring something for Vday instead of everyone and apparently my email was lost. Score! Then I remembered I was supposed to get more conditioner for home. Dang it, lunch time fail! 

So despite not realizing it was in fact Wednesday this morning, I did step on the scale. I was so happy to see 79 lbs! Woohoo....wait...that's not healthy, and I'm about 60% sure that number isn't right. So I tried again, 86 pounds...that's going in the right direction. Then like the smart girl I am, I realized I was standing on my scale...on carpet! So I moved the scale to an awkward spot in the bathroom, right smack in the middle, and stepped back on. Not as much of a loss as the previous numbers but I was down 3 lbs from the last weigh in. Still a half pound above my MFP number before Christmas. 

Random thought. Is anyone else annoyed that Valentine's Day is on a Thursday this year? I don't know why but it really annoys me. Maybe it just annoys me that it snuck up on me like this. Or maybe it annoys me that there were 80 moms in Target today getting all kinds of random items that I am sure they are going to MacGyver into the best kids' Valentine's cards ever!
I really wanted to be the creative mom this year. Like really. Then I realized there wasn't a single night this week that I get to come straight home for the evening after work. Monday I had a date with an NBA team. Tuesday is softball team practice, and Wednesday is pitching lessons. So time to be creative. Just enough time to eat and shower daily. 

I did manage to find super cute pink, red and hearts items for Mini along with chevron and glitter. That's a win win. Maybe I can even get up early enough to grab some donuts and treats for breakfast for my loves instead of granola bars. 

Am I the only Valentine's slacker this year? Tell me I'm not alone. Or just tell me I'm a loser and you are a MacGyver this year! I'm not going to hate on ya, promise.

Store bought Valentine's for my kids to hand out this year. My week was busy like yours and I just don't have the energy to put in any more effort.

Valentines Day totally snuck up on me too. My son got store bought Valentines. I thought (even though I know the Date of Valentines Day) that it was next Thursday and didn't send my Valentines Gift exchange present out until Tuesday...and forgot to give her a card. Ugh...I'm so not on top of things right now!

So no, you aren't alone!
