Linking up with our friend Peggy to share my week. It seems like my life is so busy that the only way I am going to be able to blog and stay on course is to get back to my Daybook; with prompts to help me out. Instead of monthly I will go back to weekly for now.
Looking out my window: It’s still pretty dark. I work 7-3 Monday through Friday so I get up at 5 to get ready.
I am thinking: That my to-do list is getting longer all the time instead of shorter. Preparing Jeremy for the Army is always in the forefront of our minds. We still haven’t heard about our daughter and the Air Force yet.
I am thankful: That Jeremy has been accepted and his future is whatever he chooses to make it.
One of my favorite things: Celebrating our children. Today our middle daughter, Cheyenne, turns 21! And with the Eclipse to help her celebrate!
I am creating: Wonderful outdoor living spaces (in my head). Next spring we will really work up the areas and make them livable.
I am wearing: Olive capris, a maroon blouse, and sandles.
I am reading: Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge
I am listening to: The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
I am hoping: That someone in my family will come and visit Grandma or at the very least call her!
I am learning: That people are all for themselves. Even I am a little guilty of this quality. I want to throw a fit about how unfair it is that in this stage of my life I am caring for an elderly family member when it shouldn’t be my responsiblity.
In my kitchen: I am still trying to dwindle down all the stored items we had from when we cooked large meals every single day. Slowly getting there and reorganizing cabinets as they become less full.
Board room: This is a vacation spot I found that I would absolutely love to go to!
Post Script: Linda Stoll has posted a short list of some great reads! I’ve added a few to my TBR list. How about you?
A moment from my day: We are going outside at work today to witness this once in a life time event.
Closing note: For this week I will get to work out a couple of nights. Then a couple nights I will be cooking meals, some extra for when I’m not here, laundry, and organizing. Hubby has school board meeting Thursday so that gives me a night to get caught up around the house. Jeremy or I will need to cut the grass again soon too. This next weekend we are taking our old friends to a lodge for a few days to get away. They need some time away like we do. Then we will come back Sunday morning to get ready for Jeremy’s farewell party! All in all another busy week ahead of us but we will have a few days to relax and enjoy when it’s over.
