I really thought I’d have a better grasp on my busy schedule by now. It’s March, you know! Organization was one of my biggest goals and focuses for the New Year. I tried to find a routine that would somehow make my busy days feel easy. That’s a bust! No matter how much I plan, my schedule is always changing. Soccer practices are back to four days per week and we don’t usually get home until 10:30 or 11:00 on the late night practices. Did I mention that I also registered Kaitlyn for soccer? She’s been saying she wants to be a soccer player when she grows up. Now that she’s a five-year-old, she’s ready for her own team. Her practices haven’t even started yet. Every day is still unpredictable. I might not be able to change that for (ever) a while, but I’ve been implementing some new habits that help make my days a little bit easier. There are two changes that are really making a difference. First, I’m kind of over hiding my secret snacks. No matter where I used to hide them, the kids would always find them. So, I’m leaving them right out in the open, and letting the kids know that what’s mine, is not necessarily theirs, especially mom’s New Snapple ® Straight Up™ Tea, I just stocked up on.
Second, I’m keeping snacks in the car, for me! Running around town, across town, and to the next down, every day, leaves me thirsty. I’m also trying to moderate my intake of carbonated beverages, so I was really excited to try the new Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea. I can freeze a couple at night and put them in the van in the morning. They are the perfect thirst-quenching choice! Straight Up™ Tea combines refreshing real brewed tea taste with the perfect level of sweetness for you to enjoy anytime. Straight Up™ Tea comes in 18.5 oz plastic bottles with 3 levels of sweetness so you can pick your sweet spot. Mine varies throughout the day. I love all the flavors, but today I was partial to “Sweet!”
I attended a little BBQ for some of the referees (including Pedro) in our soccer league, and a friend kept eyeing my Tea! Finally, she just asked if she could try some because it looked so good. I was pretty excited that I just happened to have another one in the van. So, she got to enjoy her own. Remember, sharing is caring *wink*
“This is really good!” That was her first response, followed by, “where did you buy them?” I picked them up at Walmart during my last quick trip to get some hair products. They did have a few on the soft drinks and water aisle, but I also found them at the registers in the cooler.
While I was there, one of the kids called to ask me to get some cereal. The kids love cereal and usually finish the box before I ever get any. Some Kellogg’s® Nutri-Grain® cereal bars caught my eye while I was looking for the cereal, so I grabbed some to add to my vehicle snacks stash.
Did I mention that the unsweetened Tea has 0 calories? Really! See why it’s hard to pick a favorite flavor? You should try them all.
