things did feel less crazy by the end of the week, and if we hadn't had the fall daylight savings time change, i might even feel rested. unfortuantely, annabel now thinks 5AM is superhappyfuntime and i am struggling as a result -- but i'm hoping [hoping?] she will someday, somehow get back on track.
i did about 2 days of time auditing, but then my wonderful college girlfriends came to visit and i forgot all about the project! probably a good thing, as this past weekend really wasn't a typical one. i will plan on resuming monday and trying for a full week.
evening plans for this week: nov 12 - 18
[note: my back is feeling MUCH better! hoping it will remain pain free, but i am going to start really slowly this week. if there is even a hint of discomfort i will walk instead of run, and of course if there's pain with walking then i'll just continue resting.]

tonight's dinner: lamb chops crusted in pistachios, fennel seeds, coconut, and spices + new potatoes + broccoli. so good -- and the potatoes + broccoli did double duty for baby purées.
