Happy to be posting again after missing my weekly planning post last week. A funeral is not a great way to start any week.
Happy to be returning to somewhat of a routine this week. Well, until spring break begins for the boys on Thursday. They only get Thursday and Friday but it’s better than being in school until June (not the norm here…I know some schools typically go that late but our schools generally release for the summer in late May).
Since tomorrow’s a work day, I’ll be linking up with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom in the afternoon. Be sure to go visit and check out all the other wonderful bloggers planning out their weeks.
It’s a little cold and cloudy this evening but spring is definitely in the air! Slight chance of rain tomorrow, thunderstorms on Thursday or Friday (slight chance again) and temps in the 50’s tomorrow and then bumping into the 70’s for Wednesday and Thursday.
On My Reading Pile
Currently, I’m slowly working through Outer Order, Inner Calm by Gretchen Rubin. Sadly, the rest of my books were so overdue, I just took them back. I’ll start fresh sometime this week or next.
Movies Or Shows I Watched This Weekend
I caught up on the CNN Decades documentaries on Netflix working my way through the 90’s and the early 2000’s. AND, Amazon added the second season of my all-time favorite show to Prime…so I watched 2 episodes of Fringe. Then, because Fringe is a bit scary, I switched over and watched an episode or 2 of Chuck before bed.
On My TV
Right now I’m waiting for God Friended Me to start. I’m also super excited Seal Team is finally back on Wednesday nights!
On The Menu
Already warned the family, it’s a clear-out the fridge and pantry week around here.
We did manage something different (than usual) tonight and I fixed chicken and noodles with mashed potatoes. Chocolate chip cookies for dessert.

For work, I’ll probably wear a blue school tee-shirt and jeans. Sleepy Monday attire.
