january blah?

i've misplaced my motivation.
i have no idea where it has disappeared to. i need a kick in the pants. i can make lists galore of resolutions, things to do, but it doesn't make me actually check things off. hmm.

we're undergoing a mini reno to our main floor. our kitchen has been somewhat out of commission off and on over the last week due to drywall mud and dust. cupboards are emptied and their contents moved to various rooms in the house. all this chaos should return to normal. it'll be well worth it for sure. pictures to come. sweep, vacuum, mop. repeat. daily. the dust and dusting will continue for a while i know.

miles had his first few days of back to school last week and then blam. fever. a bout of strep, a round of antibiotics and he's feeling back to normal. for now. my brother is getting his tonsils out in february for just this cause. oof.

ozzie has been making great progress with little things that a child his age would probably think nothing of. i have lots of thoughts going on and need to write things out in respect to where he's at. it's a whole other post in itself. but in the meantime: there's ot, pt, speech, information sessions, forms, meetings + registration coming up. because ozzie's going to SCHOOL in september. and he is SO excited. me? i'm so nervous. lots of school preparation over the next 8 months or so.

today i've meal planned. which, honestly never REALLY works. i have a love/hate with meal planning. sometimes i don't feel like eating what i've written on  my list. sometimes i'd rather eat thursday's planned meal on wednesday. so i do. anyways, meal plans here are more like a guideline since all the said food items are around at my house.

monday: cheesy noodles, smoothies & leftover butternut squash soup with some multigrain bread. (hey, our kitchen is a mess which i'll need to clean clean clean + school pick up )

tuesday: homemade calzones. w/turkey pepperoni, lots of veggies + homemade marinara sauce for dipping. kale chips + aioli. 

wednesday: thai red curry with tofu and lots of veggies w/either rice noodles or rice

thursday: homemade sushi night. including california rolls, edamame and possibly some homemade tempura'd veggies. 

friday: ground turkey taco night, all the fixin's. soft or hard tacos. i usually end up making a pile of nachos instead.

saturday: breakfast for dinner! either scrambled eggs or omelette with lots of veggies or frittata or pancakes? add in some smoothie to balance it all out.

sunday: bbq'd burgers + sweet potato fries and aioli + a green salad.

all of the above are subject to change based on how i'm feeling. but at least i have it in writing. guidelines people. guidelines. do you find meal plans help you out?

ps: below are some pictures i found on my computer in a file labeled: mileskisses. holy cute.


  1. I love your babies, and you.

  2. Their little smooshy faces are really almost too much to handle.
