FOR TODAY Monday August 15, 2011
Outside my window... a baby snake, possibly coral snake
I am thinking... about how I am afraid of snakes and wondering where the mother snake is
I am thankful for... Maggie being excited about doing swim lessons with her Dad. We had a bad experience last week at the public pool swim lessons. She spent 1/2 the week crying and the on Thursday I pulled her from lessons after witnessing them refusing to help her when she was in a panic. I believe in patience and trust so this was not acceptable to me. I am just glad she is not afraid of the water.
From the learning rooms... Week 3 of RTR, but we are behind already. I feel like there is alot of history reading each day. It is hard for me to do it all because my voice gets very tired reading aloud. We also have a homeschool swim day tomorrow and some other activities invading our week. I think I might do 1/2 day catch-ups this week and try to get back on track next week.
From the kitchen... grilled chicken and beets... I know a very weird combination
I am wearing... maternity pants and a T-shirt. Someone said to me today "Wow you don't even look pregnant for being due in January" I am going to take that as a compliment, but I do tend to just get larger all over and never get that pregnant tummy
I am creating... a giant mess everywhere because I can't seem to find a good organizational plan for myself this year
I am going... nowhere but I have been gone all day. I had a very long organizational meeting for a new Homeschool co-op in our area. Then Maggie and I went to lunch and Wal Mart.
I am reading... a trashy romance novel that is not very good. I am a little disappointed because her newer novels are very interesting
I am hoping... that we have fun tomorrow at the water park and I am able to catch up on some things this week
I am hearing... Jeff working in the kitchen and Tyler playing on the computer
Around the house... My kitchen floor is an absolute disaster and I actually swept and mopped recently. I am super happy that Jeff was able to fix my Shark vacuum today. I have the kids sweep the floor with it and it would not charge for the past few weeks.
One of my favorite things... having DH off on Mondays. I originally didn't like it, but it makes things so nicer when we have a doctor, etc appointment, especially now that DD does not like to be out of our sight
A few plans for the rest of the week... Swim party tomorrow with our homeschool group, PE, chiropractor appointment, possible shopping trip to Old Navy and a play date on Friday
Here is picture I am sharing...
