it's tuesday... ...right?!?

I am so lost on my days lately, it's not even funny.  Like right now; I swear it cannot only be Tuesday morning?!!  I kept thinking yesterday was Wednesday.  And that doesn't even make sense because we skipped out on church Sunday and had friends over kind of late that night so that entire day felt like it was a Saturday, so if anything yesterday should have been Sunday.

I'm blaming it on lack of sleep.  I've been sleeping terribly and two out of three nights of 1am tornado sirens doesn't help that.

We have had CRAZY weather 'round here lately.  Ever since Christmas.  It's been crazy warm (like 65°) and rainy (inches at a time) or stupid cold (twenties) and bone dry; back and forth and back and forth almost every day.  And a few of the days have been cold temps and the nights the warm temps --hence the storms. It was 30° the other day and then when we were wakened by the tornado sirens that night it was 65° outside at 12:30am!  Crazy.

I need to get motivated today.  My kitchen is a wreck.  A Wreck.  I did a bunch of freezer cooking yesterday (trying to get some better breakfast foods ready for the kids, quick and easy pre-prepped style because I just can't get my act that together at 6am every day) and so that combined with dinner last night, todays breakfast and packing lunches this morning, plus poms poms, waterbottles, dog chewies and other randoms dropped on the island, plus a bout of project brainstorming of mine may or may not be taking up a good chunk of counterspace as well = My poor kitchen.
But!  Now the freezer is stocked with a few batches each of healthy Blueberry & Yogurt Multigrain Pancakes, Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes and Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Pockets.  Mmmm, I'm hungry. ;)

I think I actually accomplished all that in avoidance of my living room.  I was moving furniture so there are empty shelves and books, photo albums and knick knacks strewn all over the room.  I'm at a loss on what to do with that room.  I bought a chair at our ReStore yesterday morning and I was so excited because it was perfect.  Until I got it in the room.  And then I just felt like there was way too much furniture in there.  So I spent the morning trying to rearrange the layout and try different things, and I don't know if it's just because I can't find the right arrangement, but I don't think it's going to work.  So I don't know what I'm doing with the chair.  I don't know if I should switch out the big storage ottoman that we have in there for the chair or if I should leave everything the way it was and resell the chair.  Or try the chair in the family room.  Or if I should go back to ReStore and buy the other (matching) chair and use them both in the family room -because they would look really nice in there- and then get rid of our big chair-and-a-half that we already have in there.
I know, I'm just confusing myself too.  All I know is, something's not feeling right with me in the front living room, I've never been happy with it, and it's going to bother me until I get the room "right".

So I moved on to decimate the kitchen instead.
And cooked a million and one things that looked and smelled sooo good but that I can't eat.
Yes, I'm on my stupid "no carb/no sugar" diet again.
No I'm not happpy about it.
But Yes, I've lost about 8lbs in two weeks.  Only 15 more to go.

So that's my morning in a nutshell...
How is your Wednesday Monday Tuesday morning going?
