Happy Homemaker Monday, Sick And Busy

I’m sick and it’s another busy week around here.  Starting to think all our weeks are sort of busy but I know it will taper off closer to the holidays.  I hope so anyway!

My sickness isn’t anything serious, just one of those annoying head colds with a cough.  Might mean I’m a bit grouchy but I’m still standing.  Here’s your 80s throwback for today:

While I have a bit of energy, I’m using a bit of it to plan my week.  Don’t forget to visit our host, Sandra, over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.

And on with the week…

Breakfast Time, What Is On The Plate This Morning

Oatmeal, not pumpkin spice flavor.  I went with the apples and cinnamon flavor today.  And coffee.  Of course, coffee.

Right Now I Am

Working on this post, drinking some more coffee, and listening to the dishwasher serenade a quiet house.

Looking Around The House

Living room is not too bad, kitchen and our bedroom both need attention as do the bathrooms.  G cleaned his room over the weekend!

On Today’s To-Do List

  1. Go to grocery store
  2.  Parent-teacher conferences for both kids (must do this today as I work the rest of the week)
  3. Target maybe…
  4. Work on 31 Days blog series
  5. Take a nap??

Currently Reading

Haven’t felt like reading with this head cold.  Glanced at a few magazines.

On The TV Today

Not sure I’m even going to turn it on today.  My husband will probably watch The Voice later.

The Weather Outside Is

Sunny and slightly cool.  Highs are supposed to be in the mid-sixties. Thursday into Friday, we are supposed to get our first frost!

On The Menu This Week

With the exception of today, I work until 6 every night this week so I’ll be planning lots of crock pot menus so they’ll at least be something ready for the boys at dinner time.  And of course, they’ll be a few repeats from last week as we didn’t really follow the plan at all last week.

MONDAY: Ham steaks, potatoes, dinner rolls *I have parent teacher conferences at the boys’ schools in the late afternoon and early evening*

TUESDAY: Ribs in crock pot *G has early morning band practice* *I work 4-6*

WEDNESDAY: No idea, chicken in some form or perhaps spaghetti *G has early morning band practice, last one!!!* *I work 4-6*

THURSDAY:  Tacos (I plan to just have the meat warming in the crock pot) *G has evening band practice* *I work 4-6*

FRIDAY: OUT!! *The boys don’t have school* *I work 4-6*

New Recipe I Tried Or Want To Try

Still dealing with a burnt finger from my candy apple mess.

One Of My Simple Pleasures

Breathing through both nostrils.

Favorite Photo From The Camera Or Internet

Praying For

Peace.  Also, that no one else in this house gets sick and that it stays just a cold and doesn’t turn into anything worse like bronchitis.  Good health for all friends and family.

Quote For The Week



What do you have planned for the week ahead?

      Thank you! I do feel better today, I tried to make myself rest a bit yesterday instead of go everywhere and I think it helped.

      Thanks, I’m mostly feeling better. Now, just trying to keep the lingering bits of my cold from turning into my annual bout with bronchitis. Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned!
