Did you notice the cool new header on my blog?? (Look up!) Well my amazing cousin Sarah designed it for me! She’s technically my dad’s cousin’s daughter (so my 2nd cousin?) but she’s family and that is what matters. Oh and did I mention that powerhouse of talent comes from a high school senior????? She is going places… like Tufts University in the Fall A huge thanks to her for doing this for me and making it look awesome!
In other news, I am suffering from a horrible headache, most likely from the devil children. But more on that later. First, let’s speed you up on my moves & eats.
I woke up feeling great and jumped into my suit to go for a swim at the gym! I had the whole pool to myself and enjoyed a relaxing 45 minute workout in the wet stuff. I did a total of 2500m in 45 minutes and then headed home to eat breakfast & get to the office!
(A handful of undocumented grapes were consumed while in the car line waiting to pick the kids up from school.)
Side note: the evil boy I babysat (note past tense) judged me for eating a whole bowl of popcorn when he ate a chocolate muffin, pudding, and 4 (yes 4) eggs for dinner. Yes, I tried to make him something else but he’s evil and let’s just say he cooked his own dinner by choice.
I believe I stole the idea from Bess to use POM as a syrup. The folks at POM Wonderful sent us both samples and I love it but feel kind of clueless as to how to use it other than as a juice! I combined 1 tbsp agave syrup with 1 tbsp POM 100% pomegranate juice and microwaved it to help the two meld together. It was liquidy, like real maple syrup, but mmm mmm tasty!
So about me babysitting… I’ve complained a few times on here that the twins, specifically the boy twin, are horrible. AWFUL. Hands down, the worst kids I’ve ever sat. Well tonight was the final straw when a 9 year old threatened physical violence, threatened to hurt himself and blame it on me so I’d get arrested (creative little shithead), called me a “bitch”, and absolutely refused to listen to any kind of request or demand I made. I was also told that being the babysitter gives me no authority and he wanted me to die. So tomorrow is my last day and I should be able to cut out early!! Hooray! I was supposed to leave in 2 weeks, anyways, so there is a new babysitter lined up to replace me.
However I have a massive headache after dealing with them for 4 hours so I am currently in bed digesting my amazing French toast and POM syrup I hope you all love the new design as much as I do!!!!!
