FOR TODAY June 2, 2014
Outside my window…It’s sunny now, and absolutely gorgeous! I wish I didn’t have to go to work today, but it is part of life.
I am thinking…that I really need to caught up on laundry and cleaning. I really let it slide while I am trying to get back into the working FT thing. And the house shows it. Bad. I have motivation, though. We have a house guest coming next week, plus vacation is coming up. I just want to have to do basics before we leave, instead of a major deep cleaning.
I am thankful… I am thankful that it is only 3 weeks until vacation. Can’t wait to see you Wildwood! I am thankful that we have a new lawnmower. And thankful for new blogging friends.
In the kitchen… This is a bad week for cooking, again. Since I work evenings 3 nights this week, planning is hard. The hubby and kids also have 2 baseball games, so they aren’t here either. I decided to make sausage sandwiches in the crockpot for them to eat tomorrow(stay tuned for the recipe!!)
I am wearing… not dressed yet. Bad me.
I am creating… A blog network that is going to take my blog to the next level. Christina at It’s A Keeper has organized a blogging tribe. I am so excited about it! I am also waiting for my photography lighting kit to get here so I can work on taking better pictures.
I am going… To finish switching over the clothing! And get rid of the clothing I just don’t wear anymore! Hubby got all his stuff done, and I plan on finishing up the boys later this week. I have a whole pile of bags ready to be dropped off for donation. It makes me feel good to get cleaned up and help someone else that may not have clothing.
I am wondering… When I will stop panicking about having everything ready for vacation. I want to enjoy myself while we are there, not worrying about if I forgot something.
I am reading… Ruins by Dan Wells. It is the third book in the Partials series. I am also reading The School Of Good and Evil as part of my bookstore research. I don’t recommend books without reading them first.
I am hoping… That I can create some new recipe posts for my blog. I am ready to step out of my comfort zone and try some new things. Even if I have to taste test them myself!
I am looking forward to…Spending uninterrupted time with hubby. Vacation is the only time he stops and relaxes. Although, I think I may have to hide his I-phone from him during that week.
I am learning…That, well, patience is key. And waiting.
Around the house… Ummmmm. Get it clean is my main concern.
I am pondering… how I can organize the cellar so that it is more efficient. Maybe figure out some kind of laundry organization??
A favorite quote for today… “What do you mean I can’t buy lunch today? HOW COULD YOU FORGET to fill my lunch account???” Ah, the joys of teenagers.
One of my favorite things… Having the day off with my family!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
- Monday~Housework than work.
- Tuesday~Laundry than work.
- Wednesday~Off!! Major blogging day!! Trying to get more of the laundry done.
- Thursday~Housework, then work.
- Friday~Working than relaxing. Probably a late night of Mario Kart 8.
- Saturday ~Working than maybe some outside work.
- Sunday~Off!! Hanging out at my IL’s, and start planning where we are going to eat when we are on vacation. And then grocery shopping. Oh so fun!
