*Each day this month, I am using a song to anchor or inspire a post. Today's is a little bit of a stretch. :)
You oughta know that this morning I woke up before 7 (usual for me) and worked on my weekly class newsletter before making breakfast.
You oughta know that breakfast was eggs and mashed banana mixed together, with peanut butter powder, and then cooked like pancakes. You oughta know I really enjoyed it and it kept me full all morning.
You oughta know my husband picked up the grocery order and brought all the bags in, and I unpacked them and put away all our new food for the week. You oughta know I forgot to order eggs (essential) and they were out of ground beef so I needed to run to the grocery store later that morning.
You oughta know I went to Buddah Barn and took a yoga class with my sister. You oughta know the pigeon position is so hard for me and I don't wear my hearing aids to yoga and have to look at what everyone is doing since I can't hear the cue. You oughta know I love the part at the end where the instructor sprays us with a blend of essential oils while we lie down in corpse position.
You oughta know I took Teddy for a walk when I got home because he looked like he needed some fresh air, then I showered and went to the grocery store for the eggs, meat and a few other last minute decisions of things I wanted but didn't have on hand.
You oughta know I cleaned the basement for my daughter's playdate and checked in with my Brownie troop over the cookies we have left from our last cookie booth.
You oughta know I made a yummy lunch from a recipe I saw on my WW app (salad with ditalini in it- who knew? )
You oughta know I baked cookies for the playdate but then my son's friends came over and they ate most of the cookies before my daughter's friend came. That was fine. There was enough for the girls and her friend bought munchkins.
You oughta know I cooked 3 dinners tonight- trying to meal prep for the week ahead and then the kids don't eat what I eat...
You oughta know I walked Teddy one more time because he needed exercise. His harness is getting too snug and we just went up a size. You oughta know the vet will have something to say about that.
You oughta know I am exhausted and contemplating if I want to put away laundry baskets tonight or wait for tomorrow.
You oughta know that the Bangles sing about "Manic Monday" but my Sundays are pretty hectic too.

I could hear Alanis singing "you oughta know" as I read each line. You had a day filled with moments of being fully present.

I really enjoyed the "You oughta know" repetition here. Love all the details; you really captured a frenetic Sunday. Love the "contemplating if I want to put away laundry baskets tonight" line. Get some rest!
