Week in Review w/ DITL VLOG! August 25 -31, 2014


Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great Monday. I am kinda running late with this post/video because I was really sick yesterday and just didn't feel like working on it last night. I post a week in review recapping what happened over the week & weekend. Its something that I have been doing off and on for years. Its just a simple way to give you guys a glimpse into our weekend. I also vlogged a little each day which you can see in the video below. I have been trying to move all my video's to my main channel including the vlogs but for right now I am uploading them to both channels. I think that is the best way to do it right now but eventually they will probably all move to my housewife life main youtube channel. I hope you don't mind but I have been trying to figure out a way to make everyone happy. I don't expect you to watch them twice but now you will be able to find my vlogs on both channels.

Here is my vlog from this past week. I recorded some each day... hope you enjoy! Lots more below too.


This Past Week:

I don't know what has been wrong with me but I haven't been feeling myself. At this point, I am starting to feel a little better but the beginning of the week....was a bit rough around the edges. It really felt like I lost all sense of time at the beginning of the week. I haven't been sleeping well and I have been loosing time. I would at the clock at one point in the morning and then look again and it was past time to get dinner on the table. It felt like I stayed non stop busy but accomplished nothing. It was seriously the weirdest thing. 


As the week went on, I started to slowly feel a little better. I actually made the kitty cats feel a little better too when I dumped a lot of catnip out on the floor. They rolled around and around, playing. It was seriously adorable! I got that cute snap of Romeo and Cupcake which I love. She looks just like him. 

As the week moved on, I got a lot of packages in but my favorite would have to be the box I got in from the Kabbalah Center. I got more red string and books that I ordered and I am totally excited to start reading them. I might do a video about the red string because I get so many questions about it. Let me know if that is something you want to hear about. 

Friday came around and I finally had a little more energy. I got up, got dressed and headed out the door for shopping and errands. I went to 4 places and did a ton of shopping. You can click here if you haven't seen it yet....lots of menu ideas! 


Once I got all the stuff in the house and put away, I was totally exhausted. I was wore out and didn't really want to do anything except get off my feet. I still think there are a few things still waiting on me to put up from that shopping day! :)

By time the weekend came, I was starting to feel more like myself even though the schedule was totally wacked out. Saturday we went out to a wonderful Greek Restaurant, which we all love a lot. Again.. my schedule was so off but I was starting to feel a little better. Sunday Scott got up and played golf while I got busy around the house. Jackson and I spent the day together and then when the evening rolled around I made some simple sloppy joes and tator tots...another favorite of Jackson. Since he got back from his dads and started school back up, we have been on more of a kid friendly diet just to get him to eat more. We had a great time as a family together Sunday which was nice because with the back to school schedule along with husbys work schedule just suck up most of the boys time. 

I am still not totally back to feeling better and feeling like myself but I am closer. I do feel better but I am so off schedule that its going to probably take weeks to catch up! 

  • Go through all September plans....I can't believe fall is almost here. 
  • Finish this blog post and take pictures for the other post popping up later today. 
  • Take part of Labor Day to have a little lunch date with Jackson. 
  • Weekly clean the first floor....this afternoon. 
  • Weekly clean the second floor Tuesday.
  • Afternoon Dentist appointment for Jackson also on Tuesday. 
  • Call Vet for Coopers Meds
  • Call mom and catch up with her sometime this week. 
  • My turn to carpool on Wednesday. Yuck....I hate early mornings. 
  • Quick Pantry Pickup
  • Work on Jackson's lunch supplies & film ( lots of lunch box videos coming up! ) 
  • Enjoy more gossip time on the Daily Mail
  • Whiten teeth ( which I hate because it always makes them so sensitive ) 
  • Make a nail apportionment for the end of the week. 
  • Update pinterest with latest videos
  • Clean out and organize both freezers
  • Clean up DVR so I can record even more stuff. 
  • Finally switch Jackson over to a new smart phone sometime this week.
