Happy Homemaker Monday

Happy Monday! 

We are still in the getting Jacob better mode. Bill took him back to the ER yesterday as his fever was down but was still there. They took an x-ray and ruled out pneumonia, and said that he just has a nasty case of bronchitis that is sticking around. They gave him an inhaler to help loosen things up. This morning, he woke up with no fever so hopefully, fingers crossed, we have turned a corner. It has been a long week because of that.This week I have a TON of things to do so I thought  I would join Sandra today over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for her Happy Homemaker Monday theme in order to get my thoughts in order! :)

The weather outside is::::
After experiencing a snow day last week and very, very cold temperatures...today it is cloudy out and warm. It is supposed to be up in the 60s today, but we also have a high wind warning with winds from 40-70 mph. I hope we don't lose power.

On the breakfast plate this morning::::
  I haven't had anything yet. Not really hungry. Might make some eggs here in a bit. 

As I look outside my window:::
It is grey and windy out. Dreary looking really as all the snow from last week has melted leaving the ground kind of brown looking. 

Right now I am::::
   Sitting here thinking about everything I need to get done this week. 

As I look around the house::::
  The house doesn't look too bad, considering we have been dealing with sickness all week. Cupcakes are cooling in the kitchen, so there are some breakfast and other dishes in the sink. I just brought a basket of clothes up to fold. There are toys on the floor that Benjamin is playing with.

On today's to do list::::
Laundry.... I am behind on laundry...so I have at least 4 loads to do today.
In the kitchen....I need to unload and reload the dishwasher and wipe down counters
In the living room....I need to gather the blankets that Jacob has been using to wash them.
In the bedrooms....I need to make beds and do a quick tidying up.
In the bathrooms....I need to gather dirty clothes and do a general tidy up.
I also need to cut Jacob's hair as it is getting way too long on the ears and he keeps twirling it. I also have speech today for Benjamin, an eye doctor appt. for Jacob, tomorrow a Help Me Grow appointment for Benjamin, and I have 2 birthday cakes to make for Thanksgiving day....

Currently reading::::
 I just finished I, James by Mike Hartner. (Am hoping to have it's review up tonight or tomorrow). I have 2 children's Christmas books to read and review as well. 

On the TV today::::
Right now the boys are watching the new "Dora and Friends: Into the City" show. Not sure what if anything I will watch. I think that season finale of "19 Kids and Counting" is on this week. I will also make it a point to watch the Thanksgiving Charlie Brown show at some point with the kids this week. 

On the menu this week::::
Monday - Leftovers
Tuesday - Chicken patty sandwiches, fries, and fruit
Wednesday - ????
Thursday - Thanksgiving dinner
Friday - Pizza night
Saturday - Rebecca's choice for her birthday dinner
Sunday -  Thanksgiving dinner again.

What I am creating at the moment::::
Nothing at the moment....but I do have to create 2 birthday cakes this week. My niece has requested a Pokeman cake and Rebecca has requested a Spongebob cake. I also bought some items to make a couple homemade Christmas gifts. 

Favorite photo from the camera::::

Look Mom I am helping you clean! LOL

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::

This Thanksgiving let those of us who have much and those who have little gather at the welcoming table of the Lord. At this blessed feast, may rich and poor alike remember that we are called to serve on another and to walk together in God's gracious world. With thankful hearts we praise our God who like a loving parent denies us no good thing.

Hope everyone has a great week! 


  1. Don't you just love it when your kids "help" you clean?? I have been dealing with a sinus infection and some lingering cough. I pray your son gets over the sickness quick.

    I am always behind on laundry. {sigh} Eventually I will be caught up. I've just come to realize we just have too many clothes.
