Relaxing Weekends

So we basically had nothing to do this weekend for a change.  Nothing that required us to travel really.  I did have a health expo that I did on Saturday with another fellow coach.  It was a good start to getting our “feet wet” in that department.

After the expo was done, I got to come home and enjoy my weekend with the family.  My wonderful husband rallied the kids together to help clean the house so it wouldn’t take as long.  Our daughter of course had to protest but eventually started helping out with some prodding to say the least.  The 2-year-old was actually very helpful in the beginning to help pick toys up and such.  Of course we kept having to keep redirecting him to new tasks so the toys wouldn’t start coming back out again though.  Today was a different story to say the least!  HA!  His idea of helping was dumping a small bottle of bubbles out on the floor somewhere we couldn’t see initially until he was running around and slipped and fell in he puddle of bubbles.  Luckily it was on the hardwood floor and not the tile.  It was a little more forgiving on his head, despite his hair being covered in bubbles now.  He was encouraging us to keep moving and keep cleaning though as he kept bringing us pretzels along the way.  He can be sweet when he wants to be!

Today, now that the house is clean, I’ve been working on my LEAST favorite chore…..laundry……bleh!  I despise laundry with a passion!  I would rather go out and run in the heat than do laundry!  Yes, it’s THAT bad!  I.  Do.  Not.  Like.  Laundry.

One of the things that I was given to try out are these little gems.

I was given these as a sample to try out by Margaret from The Pontes Group.  These things are quite delicious!  Delicious to the point that I have to remind myself they aren’t candy.  Think of BIG M&Ms!  They have 3 different flavors:  Chocolate, Mint and Peanut Butter.  My favorites being the Chocolate and the Mint.  Peanut Butter is pretty good, but not my first choice.  One small box of Energems has the equivalence of 3 cups of coffee!   I’m good with one single serving which is 3 Energems.  If I need a little pick me up, this is a nice, little treat when I’m not able to get to my coffee pot!  My husband loves the things too.  I actually had to hide this box from him at one point!  HA!
