Survived working a full-time schedule last week. It was actually a great week and I enjoyed it. Of course, things around here fell to the wayside a little. One more full-time week to go….
Glad I have these Happy Homemaker Monday posts to keep me on track (and keep me blogging!). It’s actually Sunday but I thought I’d plan my week a bit early since tomorrow will be a busy one. As always, I’ll be linking up with our wonderful host, Sandra over at Diary of a Stay At Home Mom.
Thankfully, no more of this: What the car said at 3:45 yesterday when I was taking J to an extra baritone lesson. The real temp was closer to 98-99 but it was pretty hot out there. The entire week. This week is supposed to be mostly in the 80’s. Better grab our sweaters, ha!
On The Breakfast Plate:
I’m sure I’ll be having a Chobani flip yogurt and coffee, my standard work day breakfast.
Right Now I Am:
Working on this post, trying to ignore the piles on the bed (I started cleaning off my desk), and thinking about how fast the weekend went.
On My Bedside Table:
One empty storage bin (filled the other one, hooray), a bag of Ziploc space saver bags, and the pillow without a pillow case (really need to figure out a home for the pillow).
On My Reading Pile:
Still working on From the Ground Up by Howard Schultz.
Movies or Shows I Watched This Weekend:
I did take a minute and watch The Grinch on Netflix. Not exactly the true to the book telling of the story though it stuck to theme. Still cute and enjoyable. I could watch it again at Christmas but it doesn’t replace the original cartoon. And J didn’t like how they left out the song while the Grinch stole the Christmas items. I pointed out they probably did that on purpose as nothing would beat the original “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” song.
On My TV This Week:

One day it will be clean. Today is not that day.
From The Camera:
Didn’t even pick up my camera until today!
Poor little gray cat’s been sick with an upper respiratory virus plus somewhere she got a little scrape over her left eye. Vet visit, one week ago Friday, followed by 2 times a day antibiotics and eye cream. And then, back to the vet on Saturday morning to get those needed immunizations. She’s not been too happy with us the last week but she is feeling much better tonight.
What I’m Wearing Today:
Grey band show shirt and jean shorts. Tomorrow (Monday), I’ll probably wear a preschool t-shirt and Capri pants plus tennis shoes to work.
One Of My Simple Pleasures:
Drinking lemonade and tea mixed together in the summer.
