A week in the life.. of me
I started my Ali project this past Saturday the 17th. I wanted it to cover over two weekends so I could showcase both ends of my life. With the kids and with out. No one really understands the pain of shared custody unless you actually live it. Having had people tell me how lucky I am to get a break from my kids every other weekend tears me up. But it is what it is and I do my best to make the situation workable.
This past weekend Chad and I filled our time up and kept busy so the missing vibes were kept at bay. We literally stayed home and cooked all day on Sunday and spent some good relaxing time in the mountains on Saturday. It was a good weekend.
Notes for AWITL: Saturday we went up to the Mountains as guests of a co-worker to check out their camping membership. We spent a good part of Saturday walking out in the fresh air and sun. James was a party animal entertaining everyone he came across. Prior to our trip into the Mountains I worked for a bit and we picked up our wine club shipment.
Sundays cook-a-thon included stuffed shrimp and crab jalapenos, black bean soup, potato and leek soup and we brined a turkey. So far all meals for the week will be cooked once the turkey goes in.
