Monday morning is here again

So yesterday my son had his “party”. 4 kids showed up. Whew! I was so afraid that there would be more! 3 boys and a girl. They hung out in his room and played video games and went outside to the playground. They had a good time.

I got to talk to one of the moms and she sent me a math tutors phone number. I called her and she asked if she could call me back. I’m still waiting. I’m also waiting to hear from the nutrition class, still! I emailed my advisor this morning because I am very worried that my other 2 teachers have uploaded lectures already.

I was walking Amber when I got home from taking my sons friend home and fell by tripping on the sidewalk. I’m not hurt that bad. I let my knees and hands catch me. I am such a klutz!

I have one job this afternoon with Ms. Forgets. Otherwise I will be listening to my first Math lecture. There’s already tests waiting for me so I hope to hear from the tutor quickly!

I made a cube steak for brunch yesterday. I topped it with cheese and cooked it in butter and it was yummy!

My really exciting news is that I decided to try on my sons old PE shirt. It’s a size medium and OMG, it fits! For those of you that follow me on Instagram, juliehcares, you have probably seen all of these pictures. I’m sure I have readers that don’t know though!

I am so excited about the size! I wore a size medium in 6th grade. Seriously!!! One of the other moms that came over told me I weigh less than she does now. She’s thin and I’m still like NO WAY. She said she weighs 162. She told me I probably wear a size 10 in clothes and should go shopping to check because it would make me realize how much I have truly lost. I haven’t because of the excess skin and I know I will have a HUGE muffin top if I wear jeans or something that actually fits. I guess I need to start wearing my stomach tightening stuff too.

That’s it. I hope you guys have a great Monday. I’ll be studying and working!

I feel like I was in the kitchen all day!

Man I cooked. I screwed up, had to remake the donut glaze, but I cooked! I hope it’s enough for the week.

Chicken wings, YUM! How can you go wrong with an all spice recipe for wings?

The keto donuts. By themselves, not that great. With the glaze, oh boy! Even my son ate one and my kid doesn’t like any of this keto stuff! He liked the buttercream icing I made but didn’t like the keto cake so I told him he can’t have the icing without the cake so I ended up throwing out about half the cake after a week. I need to make things in size for just me, it’s just so hard!

Peanut butter chocolate chip cookie bars. Not very sweet although I should have known since I used dark chocolate chips. Very easy to make! I won’t have any problems eating these during the week.

Finally, our dinner for tonight. My mom likes her steak pretty bloody (gross to me) so I made hers first. Then I started on mine. It’s juicy and tasty. The asparagus (that I make all the damn time) came out limp so that upset me. Oh well. The cauliflower rice wasn’t half bad. I was so afraid all this time that it would just be nasty. I put salt, pepper, and butter on it and it was pretty good! I will definitely have more.

My friend never showed up. Too bad for her. She could have tried all these things! I started the 6th Dexter book while I waited for things in the oven. I also did laundry yesterday. I was a busy bee! When I went to the store for the few things I needed (my son added a few things and I found out I needed a few more spices), I came home with 6 cloth grocery bags full of food and drinks for $70! Thank goodness! It’s tough being broke and having to get food. I’m just glad I cook since that saves so much instead of going out all the time.

No jobs today. Not sure if I will drive for Lyft or just relax. I haven’t decided yet. I still need to wake up!

Y’all have a good Monday!
