Whirling Around

Mondays are always my busiest day of the week, but this one really took the cake for being especially manic.

Target was closed on Easter Sunday as I mentioned, and many of you noticed that this year, too, and that it seemed to be a new thing.  Who knows.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to make a Target run today but I stopped by Rite-Aid and grabbed a few items when I was out today.  Intended to buy one, but they were on sale for $1.99 each.  I love sales.

I have used the Suave bodywashes for years and like them just as well as Bath & Body Works or Victoria’s Secret bodywash, and you can’t beat the price on the Suave.

And Carmex.  I love thee.  I have it in every room and purse, bag, car, and desk drawer.


Cannot live with Carmex.  It’s a Must Have Item.  From my last post, I enjoyed hearing what your Must Have Items are when you’re traveling.

These razor blades are a must have.  Wish these buggers would go on sale, though!

It’s an epic ripoff to stay smooth.  They are the best razor blades I have found to date, though.  I will skimp on some things, but not on razor blades.  Hacked up legs is not worth trying to save a few bucks!

I also managed to make a colossal mess of my kitchen.

I was in it all afternoon cooking.  And then photographing everything I made.  Recipes coming soon coming when I have time to get them posted.  Whenever that will be.

I was just happy to get the dishes done after all the cooking!

And I was really glad to dive into this bowl of strawberries.

They were on sale for 88 cents for 2 pounds of berries at Ralph’s today!  Practically free!

I really wanted to put my feet up, chill out, and eat a Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Cupcakes with White Chocolate Icing

…But it didn’t happen because I am working.  My paid job.  Everything else around the house is unpaid but still work! Oh well, duty calls.

Glad you liked my product reviews of the water bottle and lotion from my last post and what I plan to Bring With on our trip. 


1. How was your Monday?  Did you happen to have the day off since it was the day after Easter?  Any trouble getting back into the routine of school or work after a holiday weekend?

Whether or not I was going to have any trouble getting back into the swing of things was a moot point.  Duty called and I had to rise to the occasion.   As I always say, I’d rather be busy and whirling around than the alternatives.

2. What’s your busiest day of the week?

Mine is, without a doubt, Mondays!  My email explodes, my personal life seems crazy with errands, chores, phone calls, etc. and work is busy, too!

Enjoy your Tuesday.  And the rest of your week.  Hopefully mine is calmer than today was!

  1. The busiest day of my week is Sundays. Going to the first church service, volunteering during the second service. Then running errands, doing my food prep, and attempting to get family time in as well. I don’t work Mondays as a rule, so they are usually the most relaxing day.

  2. I love reading about your purchases!

  3. I haven’t actually started my new job yet, so I had yesterday off and it was great! I cleaned the apartment, did laundry, ran errands, and then went to the library to get travel books. I’m trying out this “law of attraction” thing and whether it works or not, it makes me feel good! Then we had some friends over for homemade cookies and a movie.

  4. I had yesterday off so yay!! now back to the grind of things… I actually just bought my fave razor yesterday, Gillette Mach 3. it’s men’s but for me, it’s the best! :) and yes why are these things so pricey!!

  5. Those brownie cupcakes look SO good! I hope you have a relaxing Tuesday and get to enjoy one! :)

  6. Those strawberries were such a steal – I’m super jealous! They look really good too…
    My busiest days are Wednesday and Thursday – I have four classes to get to on these days!

  7. The weekends are always busiest for me… Since technology has come along, professors insist on making things due Saturday night… I DO NOT UNDERSTAND IT! Haha

    On the other hand, I absolutely love your blog! You’re so encouraging and uplifting. I love the “just go with it” attitude. You and Skylar’s smiles are contagious!

  8. Thursdays! Between kickball games and baking and serving dinner rolls to homeless, it gets craaazy!

  9. Interesting on the body wash, I’ve used that brand before. So true on razor blades, prices are crazy.

    Oh, you’re good at messing up your kitchen too? :-)

    Cute strawberry pic, like the photography table. :-)

    1. Okay, busy – but time flew.
    2. Depends on what’s going on at work, it varies.

  10. I buy all my razors on eBay. They are a lot cheaper.

  11. Really enjoyed having a peek into your busy & messy kitchen. Reminds me of when we are getting ready for a party and we are both in the preparing dishes, chopping, unbaking / baking, cooking and then trying to get most of it cleaned up before the guests arrive ;)

    I was off my paid job on Monday, but was back out at the paintball field to do some work there for the morning. Clean up, straighten up, store equipment, refill air tanks, sort paperwork…
    Family dinner on Monday night to celebrate the birthdays of two aunts. Fun family get together was a great way to end the day.

    Now that the paintball season is upon us, Fridays and Mondays are my busiest days of the week. Friday I work at my paid job, then get paperwork & food ready for the weekend. Monday I work my paid job, then get the paperwork and computer entry done from the weekend at the paintball field.

  12. My busiest day of the week is usually whichever day I have class on (because I work and then have to rush home and eat supper before class). Other than that, I am not too busy.

  13. I use the men’s Mach 3 razors, and I pretty much have to take out a loan every time I need to buy more! :)

  14. Monday was great! And I did have it off but my hubby did not. Noah had hockey…twice, but I did manage to take the kids out for lunch and to see Hop.

    I really like Suave products, too. The coconut and melon one are personal faves of mine! :)

  15. I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written
