The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Monday October 17, 2011

Outside my window... It looks like a cool overcast day.

I am thinking... about cooking up some ground beef before we leave for the day

I am thankful for... our vacation week

From the learning rooms... We finally finished up week 10 last week.  I was hoping to make it to Week 20 before Christmas break, but will all our upcoming events and visitors I am not sure we will be able to accomplish all that.  I guess I will just hope to make it to week 20 before the baby comes.

From the kitchen... Eating at Magic Kingdom tonight and probably doing a lot of dining out and snacks/sandwiches the rest of the week.

I am wearing... pajama pants and a tank

I am creating... nothing. I just finished doing bills this morning and now I am off to prepare for the day.

I am going... to Magic Kingdom today and staying to watch the fireworks (finally we have only lived here 3 1/2 years and never stayed for fireworks)

I am reading... trying to finish up all the Susan Wiggs books I checked out from the library.  After I checked them out I immediately lost all motivation to read.

I am hoping... I am not completely exhausted after 1 day at Disney.  We have a whole week planned and I need to pace myself.

I am hearing... Maggie talking to herself while playing the computer.

Around the house...  I'm sure the house is a mess, but I don't have time to do anything about it today.  I am having a house cleaner come in 2 weeks so I will just keep it presentable until then.

One of my favorite things... Cinnamon Crunch Cereal

A few plans for the rest of the week..Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Princess Dining, Port Orleans Resort, Hollywood Studios and we may even visit Animal Kingdom (my least favorite resort)

The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Monday October 10, 2011

Outside my window... I think the rain has finally moved away.  I see blue skies again.  Yeah!

I am thinking... about going to JC Penney but I am also really tired

I am thankful for... Jeff doing science with the kids

From the learning rooms... Week 9 of MFW.  I am realizing I really pile on the work on Mondays.  I guess that is because Jeff is home to help and do science.  It makes for a very busy day, but allows us to manage the rest of the week.  Hopefully this will also allow me to relax and take it slower after the baby is born.

From the kitchen... Jeff is grilling steaks tonight and I have my menu list all printed out for the rest of the week

I am wearing... maternity TShirt and too tight cropped pants

I am creating... lists and notes regarding my car transmission

I am going... hmmm see #2

I am reading... another Susan Wiggs book

I am hoping... that I get a burst of energy because I really should go look at clothes before I get the kids pictures taken tomorrow

I am hearing... Maggie talking to herself

Around the house...  laundry ready to be folded and I'm sure lots of other projects I no longer have the energy to complete

One of my favorite things... Big Fish Games and time management games

A few plans for the rest of the week... Play at the Orlando Rep tomorrow and taking the kids to get their pictures taken then PE, HS Co-Op, Park Day

The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Monday October 3, 2011

Outside my window... the late afternoon sun and a beautiful cool day in FL

I am thinking... about how tired I am and also wondering where Jeff hid the Halloween candy ;)

I am thankful for... school finally being done.  I am exhausted.

From the learning rooms... starting Week 8 of MFW.  We had way too much to do today.  I really need to allow myself to skip some things that are really repeats of other material.  But I am a list checker and this is so hard for me to do.

From the kitchen... Jeff bought some pizza dough at the store today so we are going to make a homemade pizza tonight.  I will make the chicken leg quarters tomorrow.

I am wearing... shorts and a Tshirt

I am creating... nothing because my brain is fried at the moment

I am going... nowhere

I am reading... nothing because I burned myself out on books this past month

I am hoping... that I we get done with our schoolwork a little faster tomorrow

I am hearing... Tyler playing a game and talking to himself

Around the house...  every floor in the house needs swept but I am too tired to care

One of my favorite things... sleep

A few plans for the rest of the week..PE, HS Co-Op, Park Day
