It's been a great day...we slept in this morning..had snuggle and playtime with Sophia and then a leisure breakfast cooked by Amber and RonII.
Then it was time to get dressed and get those errands done. I decided to take RonII with me and we had a lunch date at DQ...who doesn't like a lunch date with their kid?! The food yummy and quick and the company was awesome.
Then off to Wally World for provisions for the week. Since they didn't have the fabric I wanted I hit Hancock's Fabrics and stocked up on fabrics for 5 blankets for the Grands and Ashby and some cute appliques for special shirts for the kids when they come. :)
Home for a power nap, coffee and then we got dinner humming along. Tonight were having roasted veggies--green beans, carrots, peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, sweet potatoes all chopped up and roast with parmesan couscous and choice of steak or chicken.
Tonight we will be watching the Redskins vs. Cleveland pre-game.
Hope you had a great day!
PS..we had a blast visiting our families yesterday. We surprised my Mom and Dad...it was her Birthday. Then we visited with Mom and Dad-in-law and we even got to see his sister and her lovely family. It was a great day!
fall has been in the air the last two days....windows open and enjoying this lovely blessing in August! I've noticed that some trees are turning and leaves are beginning to fall. Just in case you wondered...fall is my absolute favorite season!
Yesterday, was a huge errand day for me. I'm stocking up and getting ready for school to start the last week of August. We're starting a week early with the anticipation of Jess and the kids coming mid-September for a week...this will allow us to take that week off with no disruptions to our school schedule.
Speaking of school--here's what's on tap for 11th grade:
Finish up Algebra 2 program and start Geometry/Pre-Cal/Trig program - 2 years
Mondays are hard, but I'm going to seize the day! :)
I have the wretched rash back...so first thing I'm going to call my doctor to be seen asap. I can't figure out what the heck I'm allergic to. This is so not fun...2 weeks ago I was in the ER with the same thing. I can't be doing this on Nana Camp next week. Must get this resolved.
I'm getting my haircut today. I look like a shaggy dog...woof. It's been 7 weeks and it's getting scary.
Since finishing up my list of projects on Thursday, I've noticed I'm more at peace. I feel like everything is back up to standard around here and I can breathe. It's such a peaceful feeling to be caught up. I can put so much pressure on myself to have everything done, that I miss a lot of the big pictures in life sometimes. I don't want to miss a thing...kwim?!
I feel like I'm back on track so to speak....I can think, plan and be creative again. Getting rid of the clutter/junk/things you don't use or need is so freeing...if you haven't tried it...you should.
Today--I'm puttering around the house making it nice. I've ironed up everything and put it away. Towels have been washed and replaced in the bathrooms. Trash has been emptied. Kitchen is nice and tidy. I'll probably work on the cabinets we use for storage, they can go from neat to messy in 60 seconds flat. ;)
