Mom win of the week: Last week we went on a family hike and it was mostly great! When I was a trail runner I would always think how great this particular trail would be to bring the boys out–it has a waterfall and beautiful bridge at the end as a “reward”–but we just never found time to do it. I’m so glad we finally did it! If you’re local to the Sacramento area this hike starts at No Hands Bridge and is about 1.2 miles to Calcutta Falls. Perfect for a hike with kids!
Mom fail of the week: I’ve been sleeping like crap. Like, worse than normal. This isn’t really a “mom fail” per say but it definitely effects my mothering–my patience are thin, I’m cranky, and my motivation to do things is low. I have these bouts of insomnia 4-5 times a month and I know they are fueled by anxiety but I’m not sure how to stop it. I think I might look in to tracking my sleep/mood patterns, have you done this before? I need all the tips!
Listening to: The Happy Face podcast. It’s about (surprise!) true crime but it’s suuuuper interesting because it centers on the daughter of The Happy Face Killer. We get her perspective and thoughts and it is really interesting.
Watching: We just finished Abducted In Plain Sight and YOU GUYS. HO. LY. SHIT. If this story were to be written for TV they would nix half of the storyline because it’s too unbelievable. Except it’s a true story! It’s crazy. Watch it on Netflix.
Looking forward to: We’ve got a busy February coming up! A few birthdays, lots of plans, I’m excited!
– Chicken Enchiladas: No real recipe but I’m using this famous red sauce.
– Broccoli Cheese and Potato Soup: Yes, again.
– Taco Stuffed Zucchini Boats
– Stuffed Turkey Meatloaf: I don’t really have a recipe for this either. I added lentils to the meat mixture this time and it was delicious!
