And yet, it’s still going to be a busy week! I’m actually starting my Happy Homemaker Monday post on Sunday. Who knows how much computer time I’ll have tomorrow.
This week definitely needs a plan. My oldest son is leaving Tuesday to go on a trip with his high school band. My youngest has already, the day before the last day of school, said THOSE two words.
The Weather This Week
Is it March or is it May? I asked that question on Sunday morning. It’s pretty nice this morning with a shining sun although still a bit cool out. Rain is supposed to come this afternoon. Upper 60s the rest of the week until the weekend when the chances of thunderstorms return.
On My Reading Pile
I finally finished reading The Bone Labyrinth by James Rollins but haven’t started anything new yet.
Movies Or Television Shows I Watched This Weekend
I attempted to watch Bad Moms but turned it off after about 10 (if that) minutes. I had to turn it off due to content since I was trying to watch it while my boys were home but it was so raunchy in the first 10 minutes that I didn’t want to risk them coming into the room where I was watching it. Honestly, I have no desire to see the rest of it and I usually love stupid comedies.
My husband has been watching Last Man Standing on Netflix and so I’ve been watching that with him. It’s a fun show we can watch together without worrying about the boys being around while it’s on the TV.
On My TV
No idea except for the season finale of The Flash. If you watch the show, you’ll know what I mean when I say, I hope that didn’t really happen!
It should be an interesting one to plan this week since it will just be the 3 of us but then J will probably have friends staying over sprinkled in throughout the week.
MONDAY: Roast in the crock pot, carry over from last week
TUESDAY: Tacos again probably (J has a friend staying over so it may also be out)
WEDNESDAY: ham steaks and potatoes
THURSDAY: Lasagna (from a box), salad, and garlic bread
FRIDAY: Breakfast for dinner, either French Toast from the freezer or pancakes and bacon
- Finish paying the bills
- Grocery store!
- Dollar Tree for body wash
- Make sure G has everything he needs for his trip
- Any last-minute errands for G
- Clean out fridge (every week)
- Make a summer plan (it doesn’t “officially” start in my mind until next week)
- Clean house
Still planning the flower areas in the front yard. This door just sort of “magically” appeared at the base of a tree in the front yard. Can’t wait to see what the tiny homeowners do with the rest of their space.
Looking Around The House
Pretty much, the usual. If you’ve been reading the blog for any time, you know that means it needs a good cleaning which I probably won’t do this week.
From The Camera
My Mother’s Day gift from my boys makes the expected rain a bit more bearable and exciting. Into every rain barrel, a little rain must fall: Yesterday was G’s birthday, he wanted a very low-key celebration plus his traditional request of cookie cake: Queen of the neighbor’s fence:
What I’m Wearing Today:
Black tee-shirt (high school band shirt from G’s freshman year), green Capri pants, and tennis shoes
Working on this blog and connecting with all the other wonderful bloggers out there.
