Didn’t even get a chance to exercise today, too busy working. Kind of annoying, wanted to get out and running. Maybe tomorrow. I did manage to not eat much, so that’s something. Also stayed up way too late last night (which is like 2 out of 3 recent nights, so I’ve got to get back on schedule there. Basketball started up for Jackson today with a parent run practice, which was nice. Definitely starting to be too many kids to figure out carpooling. Not sure what we’re going to do for carpooling for soccer since P4 has a different Friday schedule than P2. Maybe I’ll just end up driving every time again. Did that the first year he was up there.

Got a little over a month before vacation, so gotta start planning ahead. Also Thanksgiving break was good, but gotta get back to it. Big part of that will be eating better and exercising regularly. But that starts tomorrow, so today went to family breakfast at Crosby’s Kitchen, then this afternoon got some froyo at Forever Yogurt.

Waffles and bacon and breakfast sandwiches this morning. My turn to do the cooking. Introduced the Cases to Acron. After they left, we went to the mall, today! Out at Northbrook Center, where it was pretty quiet and maybe 30% retail occupied? Nothing like the mall I was at near St. Louis. Got the LEGO Alpine Lodge (Winter Village set for this year) while the girls went shopping. Jackson and I wandered around. I tried on some Maui Jim’s, thinking I need new sunglasses for upcoming vacations. Wanted to eat at P.F. Chang’s but didn’t have a reservation and so it was an hour late. Just so weird how empty the mall was and how packed Chang’s was. Just ended up having leftovers at home.
