Last week was a bit rough. Actually, this whole school year has been a bit rough so far. Add in, a computer coma, a couple of rough days at work, sickness, and a not so fun weekend. Thank goodness for a new week!
Hopefully, it will be a better week. I certainly missed having a plan last week. Step one to having a better week, have a plan! Thankfully, Sandra at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom almost always inspires me to have one.
I thought we were supposed to have nice weather all week. Feels wonderful and fall-like this morning but I did see another site where we have fair chances of rain on and off all week. It does look like the temperatures won’t ever get too hot though.
On My Bedside Table
Too much stuff! Clothes I need to put away, books in need of a home (I’ve read them all but I’m not ready to let them go yet) and usually my phone.
On My TV
I may or may not be watching Supergirl on Netflix. Some episodes are a little rough but overall I do like the show and am excited to see what the CW does with it this fall. A certain 6th grader may be watching it with me (although he’d never admit it!). My husband and I are also catching up on season 3 of The Black List, a show that has yet to disappoint me.
Thinking and Pondering
About how much having kids is basically just waiting. Waiting for them to be born, waiting for them to go to bed until they become teenagers, then you’re waiting for them to get out of bed, waiting for appointments, waiting for practices and activities to end, waiting for school to end, to start, so much waiting. I know all the moments happen in the waiting but honestly, sometimes I get so tired of all the waiting. Just me?
mostly the silence of the morning. I can hear a bird calling outside the open window and occasional car sounds but inside the house is quiet.
Favorite YouTube Video
I’ve got nothing.
I really need to start being more intentional about checking out the ideas over at Menu Plan Monday hosted by Laura from I’m An Organizing Junkie. I feel as though we are in such a menu rut around here. Of course, new meals aren’t exactly met with excitement either yet I keep trying and again, waiting for a winning dinner.
MONDAY; Ham, green beans, and new potatoes in the crock pot. I’m going to mostly use this Pinterest recipe and of course, cook ham steaks on the side for the picky kids.
TUESDAY: I work until 6 so it will probably be another crock pot kind of night. I’m thinking I’ll make white chicken chili minus the beans and we’ll just have it in tortillas. J will probably have mini tacos as he doesn’t like this meal.
WEDNESDAY: I work again on this day but not as late so I’ll probably go with something easy and quick. Either BLT’s or French Toast, I’ll just let the boys decide.
THURSDAY: G has evening band practice so he’ll have to eat earlier than the rest of us. Fish sticks and baked potatoes for the rest of us and I’ll fix G something easy (He usually eats French Bread pizzas on practice night).
FRIDAY: Subway, pregame tradition for G. The rest of us will either eat that or grab something at the game.
To Do List
- Squeeze in a Target Trip for household items
- Clean out fridge and freezer. This was on the list last week but didn’t happen.
- Make sure to put the bags of stuff out for the charity truck on Wednesday morning/find more stuff to give them.
- Call a friend and plan a get-together
- Check on my Bunco RSVP numbers, it’s my turn to host next Tuesday! I should probably start planning that menu as well.
- Buy some new tennis shoes! I ruined my old tennis shoes mowing a soggy lawn and have been living in my Crocs but I really do need some other footwear especially if we have all the rainy days predicted.
- Laundry (and put my clothes on the bedside table away!)
Looking Forward To
Is Monday too soon in the week to say I’m looking forward to the weekend? I feel like I need a do-over weekend but instead I’ll just move my thoughts ahead to the next one.
What I Plan on Doing For Myself This Week
getting some new tennis shoes!
Lesson Learned from the Past Few Days
Patience, I suppose. I’m still waiting for it.
From the Camera
Not sure what kind of winter one that looks like this predicts…
Thoughts for the Week
My best friend shared this verse with me long ago, it’s become one of my favorites.
What are you looking forward to this week?
