And HAPPY OCTOBER!!!! I am so glad to see September come to an end. September is traditionally a bad month for our family. This past September wasn't too bad, but I am glad it is over. This weekend was very busy with very little time at home. Rebecca had her end of the season softball tournament and that meant games both Saturday and Sunday. The house is a mess and I go back to work officially this week so things are a little crazy around here. Let's see what else is going on in my little area of the world (as well as other's if you want to follow along with Sandra's "Happy Homemaker Monday" theme).
On the weather front:::
It is supposed to be in the 70s all week I think. This morning it is very foggy...
On my TV:::
Benjamin is watching "The Lion Guard" and is now crying because something on it scared him. SIGH. This week we will start watching the baseball playoffs (Go CLEVELAND!!). I also have a new show on the DVR that I want to watch, called "Pitch."
About everything that I need to do today and to get ready to go back to work. Thankfully, I only have one client today and none tomorrow but I still need to get ready.
The TV, the hum of the laptop, Ben eating a banana right next to me, the sounds coming from the basement as I have the washer and dryer both going.
On the menu for this week:::
For the fourth week in a row, I actually have somewhat of a plan for the weekdays. I think this is becoming a habit! :) and I have been able to stick to it for the most part which is even better.
Monday: Stuffed shells (from freezer) and applesauce
Tuesday: Cheeseburgers and french fries
Wednesday: Hot dogs and baked beans
Thursday: Fish, rice and green beans
Friday: Pizza and fruit
Saturday: Chicken in the crockpot, corn, mashed potatoes
Sunday: Spaghetti and garlic bread
On my To Do List:::
- Balance checkbook
- Pay bills
- Get tutoring stuff done
- Clean out my tutoring bag
- Start work on our vacation photo book
- Post review of book I just finished
- Post at least 5 things on facebook sell wall
- Start working on decluttering plan
What I plan on doing for myself this week:::
Planning on going through my clothes to get rid of what I don't like or doesn't fit so I can feel good about what I wear. (This is on my list again as I did not get to do this last week!)
Looking Forward to:::
Getting back to work. I miss working with my clients.
Benjamin fell asleep on my lap on Saturday after spending the morning at the softball fields and I also think he is fighting off a cold. He was so happy to be able to climb on my lap since I haven't been able to hold him for most of the month as I have been recuperating.
Lesson learned the past few days:::
That I have a pretty special daughter. She really enjoys everyone, even those who are not so nice to her. She is a good teammate and friend.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:::
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT MONDAY!!
