How is it Friday already?  This week has been a little chaotic over here with our bathroom renovation, but we are making the best out of it.  These zucchini brownies which I baked the other day are definitely helping.  The space is looking so much better already!

We don't have any major plans for the weekend yet.  We are kind of playing it by ear with our renovation.

Enjoy this week's round-up!

1.  Bedtime routine:: I'm curious, do you have a bedtime routine? I definitely plan for the next day and lay out my clothes.  As I keep struggling with sleep on and off, I am also trying to unplug from technology by 9:30, but that doesn't always happen.

2.  Exercise:: I have always struggled with exercise but walking is definitely something I enjoy.  I need to figure out a way to walk all year round.  I tend to avoid the outdoors in the winter here because I don't like the cold.

3.  Reading::  I love to unwind with a good book!  My reading rhythm varies a lot and I have learned to accept that.  One thing that works for me is to try to read at least one chapter when I do sit down to read.  If you want to get back to reading, these tips might help.  I get my books from the library and find that online books work best during the school year but I prefer physical copies during the summer.  

4.  Sandwich ideas:: Do you have trouble packing lunches too?  It's not my favorite thing to do and I tend to run out of ideas.  Here's a good list of sandwich ideas for you and your kids.

5.  Paper towels:: I'm always trying to conserve paper towels and try to use our cotton cloths instead for clean-ups.  I have seen these reusable paper towels and think I need to give them a try.  Have you tried them?

Thank you for reading his post!
