Happy first official full week of May! It’s the biz…biz…busiest time of the year….(sing it to the Christmas carol version. And yes, I spelled biz like the abbreviation for business or you’d have read bus like yellow school bus.)
Since sometime near the end of March, I feel like I’ve just been trying to catch my breath. Not happening any time soon. However, I’m taking time today to plan my week. Glad to spend a few minutes each Monday making sure I at least make a to-do list (don’t judge if the list seems a bit repetitive) and get my bearings on things.
As always, joining in with Sandra, our amazing host and all the wonderful bloggers who link up to her each Monday over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.
They were saying something about being weather aware on the news, chances of storms later tonight. However, right now we have beautiful blue skies and sunshine. Temps in the upper 60’s and lower 70’s all week, finally true warm weather.
On My Reading Pile
Read through a couple of quick ones for my Amazon first picks (from last month and this month) on my phone’s Kindle app. Thin Air by Jessica Gray was a bit more enjoyable than Cold Waters by Debbie Herbert. Both were murder mystery type books but Thin Air‘s plot was more unique and I’d be more likely to read another book by Jessica Gray in the future.
Movies Or Shows I Watched This Weekend
Not quite the weekend, however, on Thursday evening, G watched Spider-man, Into The Spider-verse with me. He’d watched it in the theater and quickly, proclaimed it his favorite movie so the Easter bunny gifted it in his basket. Probably one of the best animated and Spider-man movies out there. Extremely well put together and enjoyable.
Friday evening, my husband and I watched Predator. Yes, the 1987 movie. He wanted to see it before the remake. I never watched it back in the 80’s as it was deemed scary back then. The terrible plot was scarier to me. My husband will be on his own for that remake. And along with G (J didn’t want to go) we went to see Avengers: Endgame. I enjoyed that one quite a bit more than Predator though not quite as much as Spider-man, Into The Spider-verse.
On The TV This Week
On The Menu
Did okay with my Off-Brand 21 Day Fix stuff until the weekend hit. It’s still a bit of a struggle to figure out meals that work for our family with it. We definitely haven’t been eating enough protein or vegetables. Picky eater problems. And of course, throw in trying to use what we have on hand to not spend a fortune at the grocery store. Whole menu subject to change.
MONDAY: Spaghetti, garlic bread, salad (maybe lasagna instead?)
TUESDAY: Ribs in the slow cooker, crunchy coleslaw, corn *I work 12 to 3:45*
WEDNESDAY: Shrimp (frozen), baked sweet potatoes, salad
THURSDAY: Rotisserie chicken and salad or Subway *Middle School Band Concert*
FRIDAY: OUT or leftovers *I work 11-3:30* *Gifted class Reunion picnic for J and I*
To Do List
- Library books! MUST do this
- Reschedule J’s baritone lesson! MUST do this
- Grocery store
- Clean house
- Graduation stuff
Looking Forward To
The Middle School Band Concert on Thursday night.
Looking Around The House
Definitely need to spend some time cleaning today and running errands. Cleaned out the linen closet and have to bags of things to donate taking space in the living room (for 2 weeks now, SIGH).
From The Camera
Haven’t been very good at picking it up lately. I just stopped this post to grab it and take a few photos including the one up there under the weather caption.
What I’m Wearing Today
Red shirt and jean shorts plus tennis shoes. Might change later, depending on what I’m doing.
Spending time with my family.
