There’s still a bit of Monday left as I type up this post. It’s going to be a busy week around here as I work every single day. It’s only Monday and I’m already tired! Straight to the Happy Homemaker Monday!
The Weather Outside
Hot and windy! It was 85 degrees this afternoon but super windy as well. I like it but fall is returning later this week with cooler temps.
On The Breakfast Plate
Sad but true I ate the cold French Toast Sticks that J decided he didn’t want to eat. I also grabbed a Kind bar as I wanted a bit more protein.
As I Look Outside My Window
The shades are all pulled down, it’s dark out!
Right Now I Am
Trying to get this post written and not feel too guilty about not reading my book with J.
As I Look Around the House
It’s not terrible but I see lots to do if I was going to be home more this week. I don’t see anything that can’t wait though…
On Today’s To-Do List
- Clean out the fridge (mostly done)
- Pay bills (done)
- Take a nap (I wish!)
- Call and reschedule hair appointment (need to move that to tomorrow)
- Figure out clothes to wear to work tomorrow
- Write this post (In progress)
Happening This Week
- I’m working basically a full-time schedule
- Early morning and 1 evening band practice for G (who stayed home sick today)
- I have Bunco tomorrow night plus I may brave the PTSA meeting at the middle school
- G has a band competition on Saturday (thankfully, it’s somewhat local)
- I was supposed to get my haircut but have to reschedule because of work
Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets for my book club. I need to be reading since that meeting is next week, I think! J, my child who doesn’t like to read, is reading Eragon by Christopher Paolini and loving it. G is reading Fahrenheit 451 for required school list reading and so far likes it much better than the last book he read (Catcher In The Rye).
On The TV Today
I tried to watch Supergirl but my teenager kept talking to me during it so I didn’t see much of it. That’s all I’ve really had time to attempt to watch.
Be sure to check out Menu Plan Monday for lots of great ideas. This is the one thing I did accomplish last night since I was going to the store.
MONDAY(today): Grilled chicken legs, corn on the cob, broccoli, salad
TUESDAY: BLT’s and French Fries
WEDNESDAY: Chili (probably hot dogs for the boys though J said he’d eat chili if I left out the beans…)
THURSDAY: Deep dish mini pizzas (trying a new recipe, I bought frozen pizza just in case it doesn’t go well)
FRIDAY: Probably out. It’s not clear whether or not there is a football game. I think it depended on how all the other teams fared or something.
I’ve been thinking I need a hobby but for this is not the week to start.
New Recipe I Tried or Want To Try
I found these deep dish mini pizzas made in muffin tins on Pinterest (picture only) and I bought the stuff to try them out on Thursday.
Another week of phone pictures…
Thoughts For The Week
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. (Winston Churchill)
And it’s my bedtime! Don’t forget to go check out Happy Homemaker Monday over at Diary of A Stay At Home Mom. I’m hoping to get a few chances to catch up with everyone on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
