The Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside my window... it was another gorgeous day. It was supposed to be rainy and it started out cloudy, but it turned into a nice sunny day, cool enough to open the windows to air the house out.
I am thinking... that this is turning into an expensive Spring Break! So far we have been to two plays (one play twice to be more specific), one movie (our movies are $10 a pop and that's before snacks!) out to dinner three times, grocery shopping for the week, and clothes shopping twice. Oh and we got a saucer chair for the family room. This is when I miss that double income....
I am also thinking that I've hit my 90 day mark from my surgery. I'm definitely feeling much better, but I'm also realizing that me feeling normal is a new type of normal. Some things are better, others will be an adjustment.
I am thankful... for my family. No one can make me crazier, but I'll never give them up.
In the kitchen... I actually made up a menu for this week to follow since the kids are out on spring break and I have yet to follow it!!! I've made dinner yesterday and today, just not what I originally planned. However I still made dinner so I consider that a win!!! Cow yesterday and Pig tonight. Tomorrow is chicken. That will be the extent of the farm. I've never been a big sheep person unless it involved their wool.
I am wearing... a big blue t-shirt. I'm already in my pjs.
I am creating... I finished two more charity blankets for the Ravelry group Eastern Region Oddball Baby Blankets.

Now that these are done I need to figure out what to work on next.
I am going... to get rid of one more box tomorrow!
I am wondering... if I'll ever be unpacked. Maybe when the kids move out....
I am reading... phfttttt!
I am hoping... I am doing the right things for my kids. Parenting is a lot harder than I expected and some days it feels as if I'm failing at it. The problem with parenting is you never know how poorly you are doing until much later on. I know I'm a good parent, but there are areas that I feel I lack in. I know, I'm your typical mom who worries, but it's still something I hope for.
I am looking forward to... Friday. I have friends coming over during the day. Plus it looks as if we might get another date night Friday night.
I am hearing..... the hum of the bathroom fan. Everybody else is in bed so it's quiet.
Around the house... hmmmm. I have yet to plant my tomato plants or my petunias or my bougainvillea. I DO have a welcome mat with an owl that says WHOOOOO goes there! It makes me smile every time!
I am pondering... how it's not my mother's voice or my grandmother's voice that I hear in my head these days; its my grandfather's. And it's always when I'm at the grocery store. I have turned into him. It makes me nuts when I go grocery shopping and the prices keep going up. The gas would give him a heart attack. Remember how I complained abt the cost of milk a month ago? It was $4.09 and I abt had a fit. This past Monday it was up another dime to $4.19. From the comments I got from that post, my milk is cheaper that some, but it still makes me nuts to pay that much.
OMG I sound like my grandfather.....
A favorite quote for today...
Which is why when I woke up at 7am I rolled over and slept in until NOON!!! Apparently I was tired.
One of my favorite things AKA Hemi's corner....
|How you doin'!|
A few plans for the rest of the week: well I will be redoing a load of laundry since I'm just now remember it's still in the washer. More laundry and getting the house pulled together for company on Friday.
A peek into my day... it's been a busy 4 days. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday were FULL days. We were going from mid morning until late that night. I really wanted today to be quiet, but I got a coupon emailed to me for an additional 50% off clearance stuff at Beall's (a Florida dept store). I just bought stuff there yesterday so we went back to get our 50% off of that stuff AND of course we bought a few more things today. Kids have new clothes and I saved money while doing it!
So there you have it, another SWD for the books! If you want to play, go here.
