Hi, guys!

We’re back from our epic, end-of-summer vaca to Vermont. We had THE BEST time, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it, especially with regard to traveling with young kids. The parents out there know that a “vacation” with little kids is typically just a “trip,” but we really enjoyed ourselves. Blog post coming later this week!

We spent most of the day yesterday getting our lives together – unpacking, laundry, grocery shopping, meal prep, etc. Today, we’re back at it with a mostly regular week. Mal is back-to-school next week, so he’s getting his classroom organized today and tomorrow, and I’m catching up with one million emails and projects. I have a busy September with lots of travel, so I’m trying to plan ahead as well. As much as I’m going to miss summer, I’m looking forward to getting back into a routine.

This morning started bright and earl, and I fit in a bunch of work before Quinn woke up, but I still had a few quickie items to finish, so I brought my laptop downstairs to the living room while he watched some TV. Please note: The abandoned Pull-Up in the middle of the floor, which was NOT mine or Murphy’s. Ha!

After some wake up time, I got Quinn dressed for the day and then headed out to check for our Horstra Farms delivery. We ordered chocolate milk this week, and Quinn was pumped about it!

On the menu for breakfast for me: Scrambled eggs with baby spinach, toast with Justin’s Honey Peanut Butter, strawberries, and plenty of iced coffee with vanilla bean collagen and unsweetened vanilla Ripple milk.

While cooking breakfast, I dropped a piece of spinach on the floor, which Murphy IMMEDIATELY grabbed to eat, but, apparently, decided he wasn’t a fan. I guess there is a food that he doesn’t like!

He does, however, love a mostly-empty jar of peanut butter!

Ok, so that gross cough that I’ve dealt with for years now… it’s bronchitis. Right? HOW!?! HOWWWWW!?! I’ve had bronchitis for nearly 2 years now. I don’t even understand how this makes sense, but a CT scan and pulmonary specialist confirmed it. My mind is still blown, especially after TWO rounds of antibiotics with zero improvement. I’m on round #3 now, but I only have a few days left, and I’m still coughing up phlegm multiple times a day. If the antibiotics don’t work, we’ll have to do more testing, so I hope they kick in ASAP!

Question of the Day

Is there any food that your dog won’t eat? 

Anyone ever struggle with never-ending bronchitis?
