I feel like I spent my whole day after work today trying to get Trevor to do his homework. I swear that child has no attention span. Somehow he ended up watching some TV after school and it was all down hill from there. Tomorrow, no TV until the homework is done.

So what about the rest of the day?

I signed up for another 5k in November. It's in the Monterey area so it will be close to Jess, although I think she may be on vacation somewhere close to that date so we'll see if she's even at school at that point. A friend at work signed up for the 1/2 marathon. She is a runner already and is excited to do some training to get back into it. I'm hoping I will  actually be able to run a whole 5K by then. If I keep working hard maybe I will be able to. (look at the view!) Although that chick has to be freezing it's always cold there.

I went to lunch today at the Farmer's Den and had a clubhouse sandwich. I took out the 3rd piece of bread and it was fabulous. I think I could actually eat the whole thing with no bread, wonder if everyone would think I was crazy if I did that? When we were leaving the waitress that is always there came over and asked me how much weight I had lost and what I was doing and told me I looked great! That was super nice. I felt a bit guilty for eating that sandwich though!

After work I went to go to the post office to mail Jessica a package and the post office was PACKED. There was quite literally at least 50 people waiting in line. So that package will be going out tomorrow instead.

Picked up Trevor from school (they do band after school, by the way did I tell you all he's playing the trombone?)

When we got home I was waking around the yard and noticed that I had ripe tomatoes. How in the world did that happen? I've totally neglected my gardens (all of them) all summer. I'm amazed that I have tomatoes.

Another amazing thing happened today. I got the laundry ALMOST caught up! The last load (well until everyone gets undressed tonight) is in the washer. It's like a miracle! Now someone will throw up on their bed or pee all over everything. I just know it.

We had the Panko Pork Chops for dinner. I have actually made these before and they are really good. What's weird is the recipe is for 2 people. I know there must be some people out there that only cook for 2 people but I don't know what that's like. I had to times that baby by 3.

Finally it was time to go out to ride my bike. I saw this picture on Facebook today and I LOVE it!

Just another exciting day in the life of Julie....

I cook for 2 people. Thankfully we like left overs. I know a lot of people who will never eat left overs.

that woman would be cold because there is no fat there to keep her warm. :-)

We have a little store just down the street from me that has a full-on post office inside. MUCH easier than going to the actual post office. Do you maybe have something like that in your area?
