I got up this morning & made a yummy breakfast with some garden ingredients:
I served the fresh tomatoes, basil & peppers with eggs & rolled it into tortillas. Delicious! Love having breakfast that you (mostly) pick in the yard. Too bad we don't have any chickens! :-)
I also did yoga this morning, & went for a quick run before interviewing a potential nanny. I think we found a great fit! We're mostly just looking for help after school, taking the boys to practice, helping with homework, etc. Her schedule is pretty flexible, and she did extremely well with the kids. Now we just need to find a day for a trial run, and figure out how much we can afford to pay. I'll be very relieved if we can get some extra help with the boys.
Other than that, it's going to be a very mellow day, and I need one after the week of craziness. I'm hoping to sit in the backyard and enjoy the sunshine, read my book, prep some freezer meals, and spend time with the boys before we take them to camp tomorrow. Another big milestone - a few nights at sleepover camp! They are extremely excited, so fingers crossed that it all goes well.
And, my week definitely turned around - I found out that I'm getting a stock option "refresh" of my existing options. It won't be very much all at once (vests over four years), but we're hoping to devote all of that money to our travel fund, which would cover trips to see the family, etc. That would free up cash flow from our standard budget for paying down our mortgage, etc.
I never got to go to sleepover camp, but it was a huge dream of mine growing up. Have you ever been, or sent your kids? What was your experience?
