Happy Homemaker Monday (February 26, 2018)

Happy Monday everyone! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was a mixture of being super busy and on the go and not feeling well. This head cold of mine is kicking my butt. Thankfully it is not the flu, but it still sucks. One day I feel better, then the next I feel like crap again. But I have to just keep going because that is the season of life that I am in right now. 

My weekend:: I was on the go ALL weekend long. Saturday, we had 3 basketball for the kids and then I agreed to babysit for a friend. I ended up getting those kids at 3 while I was at basketball. So for most of the evening I had 2 extra kids here at my house (another 11 year old and a 2 year old whom my husband nicknamed "Hurricane"). Once they left around 11, I went to bed. Then up early on Sunday to teach PSR, then church, then home for lunch, then library for a Battle of the Books scrimmage, then home so Bill could go to an Upward coaches meeting, then make dinner (hot dogs because it was easy), then trying to lesson plan for tutoring today and Battle of the books meeting... Oh and did I mention laundry is way backed up?? Oh vey. 

Right now, I am taking a moment to type this up while my babysitting baby is sitting on the floor playing for once without screaming. So with that, I am joining in with the lovely Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom and her "Happy Homemaker Monday" series
