Late today as I unexpectedly went into work for a full day. It’s certainly been a bit of a Monday around here as well. Weather making us all crabby, G waking up not feeling well, me dropping my car key in the crack between the back door and porch. Oh, and it poured rain all day.
Better get a start, even if it’s a late one, on planning the week ahead with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.
Blah! At least it stayed above freezing today. However, really I’d prefer snow to an all day rain. The rain’s turned the ground into a bizarre slush (we had ice/snow last week). I do see some 48 and 50 degree days predicted this week, hope the sun shows itself as well. Need some outside time. We all do.
Right Now I Am
Waiting for the oven to preheat so I can throw the (box) lasagna in it. Working on this post. Stopping to let the little gray cat outside (hoping I remember to let her back inside). Trying to decide if it’s worth it to take off my wet shoes and socks (I need to run out again later).
It’s taking pretty much all the thought-power I have left today for this post.
On My Reading Pile
Finished Dark Winter by Anthony J Tata and Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng last week and into the weekend. Not sure what I’ll pick up for this week.
On My TV
Last week we watched Deadpool 2 and I really enjoyed it. On Netflix, I started (why?) watching The Ted Bundy documentary…creepy. Then, we (not the kids) watched Silence of the Lambs. And by myself I watched both Terminator and Terminator Genisys. Really, I’m just waiting for Seal Team and God Friended Me to air again. I miss my regular shows.
On My Menu
This is not the week to invite yourself to dinner at our house. I have no idea what we’re having. Trying to live out of the freezer/pantry and use what we have. Let’s see…
MONDAY: Box lasagna, salad, bread sticks from hot dog buns *I worked 9-3:45*
TUESDAY: Fish, baked potatoes
WEDNESDAY: Country Ribs in Crock pot (yes, same ones that have been on this list forever) *I have an am hair appt*
THURSDAY: Steak bites *I work 9-1* *J’s baritone lesson*
FRIDAY: Leftovers *I work 11-3:45* *G has pep band*
On My To Do List
- Go to grocery store for produce/lunch stuff
- Buy toilet paper
- Mail electric bill (this is new, our utility now charges an insane fee for on-line payments)
- Valentine’s Day stuff, mail a few cards
- Clean out fridge/pantry/cabinets
- Get back on track with the clutter clearing
- Come up with a “get healthy” plan, maybe start with a sugar-free challenge
- Write and schedule a few blog posts
Nothing but I should add a #9 to my list, find fun project for winter.
Looking Around The House
Not awful because we had a few rooms (the main three) clean for my husband’s birthday. Bedrooms need lots of attention. And there are muddy footprints and paw prints across the hard wood floors and on the living room table (just paw prints there).

On My Prayer List
Funeral procession I passed last week, coworkers, family, friends.
