Molly Maid.

Mom and I

I got the kids off to school and came back home to tidy up before I back headed out. I have a couple Thursday routines. One is run with Danielle and the other is I help clean Andys Maw Maw's house with mom.
Maw Maw is Kentucky for grandma!

Danielle has not had power for over 4 days. Danielle had to cancel to take care of the generator and freezer issues she was having. I felt so bad for her that she still was without power.
I quickly called mom and told her I could meet her earlier to clean.

I always stop at McDonald's to get maw maw a egg Mcmuffin with decaf coffee, mom a Large Diet Coke and ME a egg white delight with a coffee.

It usually takes about 1 1/2 hours to knock it all out. I brought my apron and grabbed the dusting polish.
I really enjoy seeing maw maw every week. It reminds me of going to see my grandma every week when she was alive.
It feels so good making someone else's day.

I brought my running clothes to change into after we finished cleaning. I was a bit embarrassed to change knowing maw maws wheels would be turning when she saw me in my running clothes.
I was stepping out of sweat pants and an apron into Spandex running capris and skin tight running shirts. She must have looked at me twice.
I couldn't get out of there fast enough in my hot pants!

I left bummed out due to the fact when I was coming in with my hands full I noticed my bag was leaking. My cell phone got water damage and was not working.
I was supposed to run at Indian Springs metro park. but could see the concern in moms face. Mom did not like the idea of me running with no phone in the park.

I hate the thought of mom worrying about me. I love mom like my own. (She is Andys mom) It pains me to see her hurt. It pains me even more if I hurt her. I decided to run at home so she would not worry.
Due to the fact I am an airhead, I forget that there was no way to let her know that I was going to run at home therefore she still was most likely worrying!

Andy was home this afternoon. We were both so busy that the only time we shared was the lunch I made him after my run.
He spent 5 hours raking leaves. I felt guilty going for a run while he had a rake in his hand.

Distance: 7 Miles
Pace: 54. min

It was a great run. Felt good to run the old route.
I LOVE avocados.
Alec helped me make dessert tonight. We made:

Chocolate Avocado Mousse


  • 1 ripe, Fresh California Avocado, halved, peeled and seeded
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  •  1 Tbsp. vanilla
  •  ½ cup agave syrup
  • ¼ cup  coconut milk                                                              
  •  ¼ cup Raspberries


  1. Chop the avocado into a few medium-sized pieces and put it in a food processor.
  2. Add the cocoa powder, vanilla, agave syrup and coconut milk to the food processor and blend on high for about thirty seconds, or until mousse reaches desired consistency.
  3. Serve it chilled with fresh sliced strawberries.


Whats your favorite Avocado recipe?
I have a soup I want to try next week!


  1. I've never tried Avacado made into chocolate... gotta try it. I LOVE Avacados!!!

    1. Rebecca Jo,
      I was shocked the first time that I tried this. One of the girls that I work with made this dessert and had me try and guess the MYSTERY ingredient. I was shocked when it was Avocado. My husband didn't like the mousse. He didn't like the Agave in it. He said it tasted like medicine.
      After making it I can see that this recipe can be altered.
      When you try it let me know what you think!

  2. Thank you for the box of goodies!!! They arrived today :)

    1. Yeah Michelle!
      I am so happy you got your goodies! That was fast!
