If you love sloppy joes, you have to try my Sloppy Joe Sliders

Bleh, Monday.

My husband goes back to work today and it’ll be really strange since he’s been on leave for over a month. He had to shave his beloved “leave beard” yesterday in preparation and I swear he almost cried. And then when the baby (who’s not a baby) saw him without the beard, he said, “Hey. Your head looks funny.”

I died.

We went to IKEA on Saturday. And btw, IKEA on a Saturday is not really a great idea. But, you know.

Since it’s in Denver (like a 40 minute drive for us) we’ve been planning this trip for awhile and I had ridiculously long list of things that we needed. I figured, I only go once a year – I might as well make the best of it. Right?

So then my husband spent all Saturday night and most of yesterday building ALL THE THINGS. The little ones got bunk beds and we got a new bed for the big one and a TV stand and several other things that required lots of sweat and curse words from the husband.

It was fun.

Today starts 5 days off school for all my children.

Who decided this was a good idea?

Someone should’ve consulted me before such an important decision was made.

On the brightside, I don’t have to go anywhere today. I will change into workout clothes and then right back into pajamas after my workout. And a shower, of course.

Tomorrow, however, is parent/teacher conferences. The reason the kids have 5 days off.

Uggghhhh.

I’m always so nervous going into those things.

You guys already know that I’m prone to crying when I’m aggravated and there’s nothing worse than crying in a meeting with your kid’s teacher.

Because then you’re that parent the rest of the year.
