I keep trying to make it simple. But sometimes I make things more complicated. Does that make sense?
Trying counts, right? Right? Maybe? Okay, so instead of trying, I just need to do it!
FOR TODAY February 9, 2014
Outside my window…It’s sunny now, but is going to get cloudy fast because we are supposed to get, surprise surprise, more snow later this afternoon! I am so sick of typing this every other day!
I am thinking…that I want to go somewhere warm, just for a week.
I am thankful… I am thankful that my kitty is feeling much better. She is no longer hiding under the bed for all house, and is back to spreading my hair rubber bands all over the place.
In the kitchen… A few good things this week!
- Sunday: MIL is making spare ribs with the fixings
- Monday: Tacos
- Tuesday: OYO. I have a meeting to go to
- Wednesday: chicken fingers, mashed potatoes, and corn
- Thursday: Burgers and baked beans
- Friday: Lasagna
I am wearing… My pj’s. I need to go upstairs shortly to get dressed
I am creating… A home that is clean and company ready. Time to get back to FlyLady routines. I started with it last week by making beds, and doing PUPA twice a day.
I am going… Get myself caught up on ironing! And laundry. And cleaning the bathroom. Ugh, does it ever end?
I am wondering... if I can make it to Spring. This winter has been bad for me because of all the snow. I am thinking it’s time to invest in a sunshine lamp.
I am reading… Insurgent by Veronica Roth. Still. This book isn’t holding my attention like Divergent did. I am also reading Food Photography for Bloggers, and Balancing It All by Candice Cameron Bure.
I am hoping… That I can start some Spring cleaning. Closets, drawers, cabinets. Simple things first, then move up to the furniture and stuff.
I am looking forward to…Spring and sunshine and flowers. I can’t wait to get out and take some pictures of Spring with my new camera.
I am learning…That the more you whine about Winter, the longer it will hang around. Please pass me the duct tape for my mouth.
Around the house… Just trying to keep things presentable. Making sure I am making the beds daily, and that the sink is empty. It really makes a big difference. And doing at least one load of laundry a day. I am also trying to keep up with ironing. At last these things *must* be done before any blogging or networking starts. And stop talking about the above statement, and just do it!
I am pondering… Next Sunday is our interim pastor’s last day. It is bittersweet that she is leaving because she did confirm my oldest. Confusing because I am tired of change in the church that doesn’t produce change. Doesn’t make sense. I will explain in a future blog post.
A favorite quote for today… “But I don’t want to”. It definitely needs to warm up so they can go outside and run around!
One of my favorite things… sitting on the sofa, cuddling with hubby.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
- Monday~Work, laundry, cleaning up. Spend the rest of the day blogging.
- Tuesday~Work, and more laundry. I have a baseball board meeting in the evening.
- Wednesday~Work, housework, blogging, and picking the boys up from Science Olympiad.
- Thursday~Working, housework, blogging.
- Friday~Working, blogging, making Valentine’s Dinner for hubby. And then maybe a little Mario Kart with friends.
- Saturday ~Sleeping in, SITS Sharefest Twitter party, then relaxing.
- Sunday~Church, lunch, napping, the perfect Sunday!!!
