Simple Woman’s Daybook~May 14th

FOR TODAY May 14, 2012

Outside my window… It is gray and rainy and miserable.

I am thinking… That I am glad that I only have a 3 day work week this week.  I have some serious blog work that I want to get done.

I am thankful… For many things today, but mostly that I have a wonderful husband, two great kids, and a whole bunch of great friends.

In the kitchen… I am at a complete loss. With baseball season back in full swing, there isn’t a whole lot of time for cooking.

I am wearing… Still in my PJ’s.

I am creating… A neat and organized kitchen. Or at least trying to!

I am going… To get dressed, run to the bank, and then tackle the laundry.

I am wondering… If the new owner of our favorite Wildwood motel is going to be able to fill the big shoes the previous owner left behind!

I am reading…Big Girl by Danielle Steel

I am hoping… That hubby has a better week at work. He has been so stressed lately, and it always upsets me to see that

I am looking forward to… Baseball! I am so happy that the season has started. Win or lose, it’s where I belong.

I am learning…That keeping up after the house gives you more time to blog!

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.

I am pondering… Lots of things, all they are as discombobulated

A favorite quote for today… ” Ummmmm………..was I supposed to do something?”

One of my favorite things… Days off with hubby, cuddling on the couch and just relaxing together

A few plans for the rest of the week:

  • Monday~Off, Weekly Home Blessing, and taking hubby to Longhorn Steakhouse for his birthday dinner.
  • Tuesday~Working all day, then doing things at home
  • Wednesday~Working in the am, then home to relax
  • Thursday~Working in the am, then a baseball game, then relaxing and spending the rest of our anniversary cuddling on the couch
  • Friday~OFF!!  Just a few things, then relaxing.  Catching a baseball game in the evening.
  • Saturday ~Chaperoning my oldest son’s band trip to Hershey Park
  • Sunday~Fundraising breakfast in the morning, then possibly an Iron Pigs game, followed by a graduation party

A peek into my day…

“Wow Mom, we completed the MS Walk, and now let’s eat!”

  1. Great picture of your son! I agree that keeping the sink clean makes a BIG difference. I feel even better if my kitchen island is clean, too! Have a great day!

  6. Your son is sooooo cute! what a great picture. Writing/journaling/making a list is such a great way to start the day ~ gets those thoughts out of your head and onto paper. Hope you have a gentle week inside of all the activities (and cuddling!).

  7. I love the expression of your son in that photo!

    I agree, keeping the beds made and the sink clear of dishes really makes a difference.

    I’m glad that baseball season is starting for you! My kids are grown now, so I do miss going to their games. Perhaps someday I’ll have to go to a grandchild’s game …
