Maggie's Mussings

I went to Disney.  It was hot.  We went on this crazy drive and I said "My mom won't like this."  We went to this show that was in 3D and sometimes they come out of the movie into characters.

The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Monday May 23, 2011

Outside my window... darkness falling

I am thinking... how much money is left on my Itunes gift card

I am thankful for... my date day with my hubby

From the learning rooms... We are wrapping up the school year.  I may do 1 or 2 more weeks of full days and then switch to half days for June.

From the kitchen... leftovers today.  Vegetable lasagna tomorrow.

I am wearing... a brown shirt, Bermuda shorts and tennis shoes

I am creating... my June budget

I am going... nowhere tomorrow.  I am looking forward to my possible only day at home.

I am reading... nothing, although I am sure there is a pile of books laying at my bedside.

I am hoping... that the kids cooperate tomorrow 

I am hearing... Tyler and Maggie playing Harry Potter with the neighbor

Around the house...  a mess everywhere the kids go.  Just as we clean one mess up they make another one.

One of my favorite things... my brand new IPad that finally arrived today!!!!!

A few plans for the rest of the week... taking my Mom to the airport on Wednesday, cub scouts and then 2 days of our annual homeschool conference

The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Monday May 9, 2011

Outside my window... A muddy mess where Maggie and her friend were playing with the sprinkler in the yard

I am thinking... that I am tired already and I just got up

I am thankful for... the nice relaxing Mother's Day we had yesterday

From the learning rooms... We are finishing up a lot of our curriculum.  I realized T will be done with his LA very soon.  M has already finished math and we are just working on some misc workbooks I have laying around.  I am debating on buying her next math book now or waiting until the HS conference at the end of the month.

From the kitchen... not sure... We had a big meal yesterday so maybe leftovers.

I am wearing... my pajamas

I am creating... kids' goal lists for next school year

I am going... to take the kids to their dental check-ups and then to Magic Kingdom for a few hours

I am reading... nothing at the moment.  I have lost the mood.

I am hoping... that my irritable mood improves soon

I am hearing... Tyler describing his lego creation to his Dad

Around the house... My Mom has been in town so she has been cleaning for me (Yeah).  I just have some spring cleaning projects I would like to complete.

One of my favorite things... the community garage sales I attended this past Saturday

A few plans for the rest of the week... no girl scouts this week so just park day, cub scouts and my chiropractor appointment

Here is picture I am sharing...

Weekly Wrap-Up: 5/7/2011

Wow I have been so bad about blogging lately.  Thanks goodness I am forcing my kids to blog as a weekly assignment or things would be dead around here!

We had a pretty basic week.  Last weekend we went to visit my Mom in Sarasota.  We went to the beach on Sunday and visiting the Goodwill bookstore on Monday.  Yes I did spend $50 at the Goodwill bookstore, but we got lots of interesting books and found a couple "Harry Potter" books for our collection.

We had a short week of school, just 3 days.  I have been trying to keep our Fridays clear since I have zero motivation after we return from our park days.  We are near the end of our year so I can do a 3 day week and still finish up all of our work.  We are coming to the end of some of our curriculum.  A few, like History and Math, I plan on continuing throughout the summer.  Tyler will finish his Language Arts this week.

I am really looking forward to the homeschool convention at the end of May.  I have several different curriculums I would like to explore for next year.  I can't wait to see them in person.

Today we are off to the community garage sales in a local suburb.  We have gone every year since we moved to Florida.  I hope I find some good deals today.
