Breakfast and Craziness

It has been one heck of a week! I will not go into details on this post, but I have been working 16 hour days since Monday.  That being....My day j.o.b., my job when I pick the children up and come home to cook dinner, clean the kitchen, laundry--you know the Momma duties, sister bear in bed at 7 and brother bear in bed at 8.  THEN--off to my other job for 6 weeks.....Painting for my Mother.  She had a bad fall leaving our sewing class Sunday night.  Without going into detail too much, she called my cell and I RAN OUT THE DOOR, kicking my shoes off to run faster to find her laid out on the curb.  It was awful and scared me so bad.  She was in a whole lot of pain.  I called Daddy and he was there in 3 minutes, I kid you not.  I grabbed a kid pillow and blanket that I keep in my car--snuggled her in and off to Montgomery they go.  She broke her elbow, thankfully no surgery, just a cast for 6 weeks.  Been there, done that--4 times (arm) ankle (once) We are accidents waiting to happen....soooooo that explains my long day.  My sister is a CPA and has pulled longer days than that for weeks at a time.  I DO NOT KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT!

With all that being said, I am behind on a ton of happenings.  Wiley's birthday party post, his actual birthday and my birthday.  All this will be coming soon. 

I wanted to share my latest breakfast addiction.  I love breakfast and have to eat it every single day.  Why? Because you are supposed to, it is the most important meal of the day AND it makes me feel good!  I normally eat the same thing every morning and swap it up, oh say every four weeks.  My friend Rayne follows a blog that I started reading and LOVE.  Peanut Butter Runner. I love Peanut Butter and I love to run, her blog is right up my alley! This week I started making her Overnight Oats!  I love it and it is so refreshing and flavorful.  The best part is it keeps me full until I have lunch.  Some days I can eat it all and some days I leave some.  Click on the links and it will take you to her blog and recipe. 

Hope y'all have had a great weekend. 

Our weekend plans are as follows:  Yard work, sewing, painting, relaxing and Church on Sunday (followed by a nap) Maybe a big pot of Taco soup tomorrow--got a little nippish here today!

Weird that I found this picture in my scrapbook things two weeks before Mom broke hers.

JP was in town for a few days and they spent the night together!

Alice and I got in a run after work one day!
