I have a belly full of homemade chili that was fantastic. I actually had two bowls.
I have a heart full of love. I am a very lucky girl to be married to such a handsome man who makes chili, walks the dogs, runs with me, and does laundry.
I have a bed full of puppies who are like little heaters and keep my feet warm so socks aren't necessary.
I have a head full of thoughts and I am not sure I am articulate enough to get them written here on this little blog.

Pick out paint for media room.
Have brunch with Mr. R.
Walk Simon & Sophie to the lake.
Dream about having 4 beautiful babies with blue eyes. (My biological clock is really ticking!)
Paint media room.
Scrapbook my week.
Make a dent in my never ending laundry pile.
Send out a few thank you notes.
Write packing list for San Francisco.
Nap, if needed.
Date night @ the Greek Festival tonight... I hear a gyro and some dancing calling my name.
I don't have many photos to show you this week, actually for this post I don't have any. But for those of you who care enough to keep reading... my week in words.
Tuesday: Block day. Finished teaching the scientific method to the children. We culminated the unit by completing my favorite lab, See Jane Date. They actually have to use the scientific method to find a date for my friend Jane. This results in crazy matches and lots of laughs. I had a mondo headache all day and ended up eating leftovers and heading to bed early.
Wednesday: In class review day, fruit for all three meals, 5 mile run with Mr. R, Mad Men watched on On Demand.
Thursday: Test! I graded all day long. My "in box" is now empty. Go Me!!! Shopping with Kristin & Danielle for marathon necessities. I got a really cool running belt to keep my hydrated on my long runs. I have decided I need cute running clothes like Kristin. I also need her body shape too. (More on that later).
Friday: On to the weekend!!! Afternoon snack with Mr. R, Reality TV watching, dinner that I did not make, late night kisses, falling asleep while quoting Brian Regan, Mr. R softly snoring next to me. Reminded that I have a very awesome life and should be eternally grateful.

Mondays are block days so I only see three of my classes as opposed to six. Classes are twice as long and I don't have to be as rushed. (Once I get to work). This morning was another late morning for me. I woke up late, showered late, got dressed late, and left late. It was as if I was unconsciously trying to see how late I could make myself this morning. I did however discover that if I leave my house at 7:10 I can get to work before the kids come beating down the door. (Good to know in case I encounter another case of the Mondays in the near future.)
The downside of leaving late and being rushed is that I don't get breakfast. I drank my coffee while driving and had an Odwalla smoothie in first period.I was starving my second period so I dug into my strawberry chobani yogurt. Thanks to Costco I have plenty to choose from. Lunch was leftover mac and cheese with fresh fruit. Turns out Costco's fresh fruit bowl is way better than the Publix bowl. (I think its a bit cheaper too). Plus it has mango in it!
My classes went smoothly and I left work on time! I'm making progress people. I have a major headache tonight so I plan to spend most of my afternoon in bed with Advil and the lights off.

Do you think Sophie looks embarrassed of me?
Mr. R rocking his 3-D glasses. (Believe it or not this was pre-drinks).
Dessert! Tonight's meal was a taste of Mediterranean.
Gyros from Greece & cannoli from Italy (or Publix?)

Here are my daily eats from Friday. What's missing is the Chinese food we ordered to make up for the dinner we missed while Mr. R was on the phone. By the time we got the food home at almost 8:00, I was so hungry I ate mine out the container and forgot to take a picture.
Chobani blueberry yogurt mixed with cheerios and oats.
Leftover quiche with honey wheat pretzel sticks I also celebrated (a coworker's new job) with fruit pizza (not pictured). It was so good!
I think that will be my last Chinese food for a while. It made me sick to my stomach... I should note that perhaps the way I ate it (wolfing it down almost whole) could have caused this feeling too.

I ate my breakfast over the course of 1st, 2nd and 3rd period. I would sneak bites in between class change and note-taking.
