Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY... August 3, 2009...
Outside my window... the moon is shining bright in the desert sky since I am very LATE in posting this...LOL
I am thinking... that I really should be going to bed before it gets any later. Busy day tomorrow
I am thankful for... the washer and dryer in my very own home. Since I do about 20 loads a week...going to the laundromat would be not only expensive, but a huge time sucker, not to mention a rather large hassle. So, I'm thankful for a working washer and dryer that saves me untold amounts of time and energy.
From the learning rooms... nothing yet this week, but the boys are enjoying listening to grandma read Little Pilgrim's Progress to them and soon we are starting a new lapbook project, hurray!
From the kitchen… well, Jodi brought home Sonic tonight, and the rest of the week remains to be seen...LOL! Fell off the planning wagon this weekend. But I can tell you that the meals do include eating up what's already made AKA leftovers (there is homemade mac and cheese, Lasagna and fresh garlic bread, smoky black bean and rice stoup, and a few other things lurking in the back) I know I have some pork chops in the freezer, there is plenty of things to have a soup and grilled cheese night and as always, Pizza will be Friday night...so that covers most of the week right there...phew!
I am wearing… my ugly 'clean the house' clothes...brown knit capris and a seen better days olive tee shirt, plus bare feet, one of which is throbbing after my 4 AM run in with a goat head sticker...OUCH!
I am creating… travel plans, meal plans, USA map lapbooks, pre-K school plans (yes, already) and a budget for said trip
I am going... nowhere but to work until Thursday when I'll be taking 'Shua to the airport to fly to IL and see his Lauren, who is my favorite daughter in love to be! She' having a rough week and it will be great for them to be together for a few days...*sigh, young love*
I am reading... other blogs by the lovely ladies that do this daybook with me each week, maps, hotel websites, and silliness on facebook
I am hoping... that everything goes smoothly week and I can accomplish everything that needs to get done
I am hearing... not much since everyone is in bed but me...just the fans keeping the house cool, and a few crickets chirping
Around the house... there is much to be done, as usual. The bookshelves are my next real project though. 'Shua built me some shelves for the back/play/schoolroom over the weekend and it's time to get all those homeschooling resources piled onto them...hurray! Other than that, the trip plans and general housecleaning.
One of my favorite things... a night off from kitchen duty...thanks Jodi!
A few plans for the rest of the week… cleaning, playing with the boys, a little yard work, putting things on hold at Kohl's until the sale on Saturday, working 4 nights, game night, taking 'Shua to the airport and enjoying Dan being home over the weekend. It's a humble life, but a good one!
Here is picture thought I am sharing... Derek's 4th birthday was on Saturday and we had such fun playing at the Kids Kindness Day at our local park...everything was free and we all had a blast!

Hi Kristy!

I so enjoyed reading your Daybook! I was drawn to yours because I, too, am mama of a "man crew." That's a hilarious way of putting it! Sounds like you are having a busy but satisfying summer. Hope you have a terrific week!
