The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Monday February 20, 2012

Outside my window... Maggie playing with the neighbor and his new dog.

I am thinking... about how I can accomplish all I need to do with a baby in tow

I am thankful for... the sleep I got last night

From the learning rooms... We finally started to add our main history curriculum back in this week.  I am not sure how quickly we will get thru it, but at least we are moving forward.

From the kitchen... Jeff is making a salad and steaks as I write this.

I am wearing... yoga pants and a long sleeved T-shirt

I am creating... not alot.  I am leery to start trying to get anything new done so I am just trying to clean up the messes and piles from the past month.

I am going... to my 6 week follow up appointment tomorrow and possibly take myself to lunch.

I am reading... nothing, although my Mom keeps handing me books and telling me how good they are.  Then she rolls her eyes at me when I tell her I don't have time to read.

I am hoping... the baby doesn't scream on my drive tomorrow

I am hearing... Maggie outside, the dryer buzzing and my Mom making lots of racket with the dishes

Around the house...  I really didn't get a whole lot done today despite the baby sleeping alot.  I did manage to wash my diapers and make the bed.

One of my favorite bed which has felt extra comfortable the past several day

A few plans for the rest of the week..PE, Co-Op and park day as usual.  Also an appointment tomorrow and Jeff is running his first 5K on Saturday.

Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What is something you are loving right now?

My fisher price rock n sleep... especially because I can rock it with my foot while typing on the laptop.  I love multitasking!

2. Paris, Venice, New York and Rome are considered four of the most romantic cities in the world. Of the four, which one would you most like to visit?

I am really not sure why New York is considered a romantic city.   I would have to say Rome, but mostly because we just studied that in History and I would love to go explore all the areas and architecture we learned about.

3. Are you a romantic?

In theory, but not in practice.

4. What's your favorite love story made for the Big Screen?

Probably The English Patient.  I really can't think of anything else this moment.

5. Everyone loves Pooh bear and friends....which character are you most like and why? Click here for help in answering this question.

Probably Rabbit because I do tend to get exasperated with others who are naive and/or overly dramatic.

6. What's the best chocolate something you've ever eaten?

After the birth of my second child, DH came home one day with a chocolate covered oreo.  It was definitely the best chocolate ever.  Of course, that is probably because I never wanted chocolate more than at that moment.  In general though I like my chocolate (and beer) cheap.  I will take a Hershey bar over an expensive piece of chocolate any day.

7. Share a favorite quote about love.

I don't really have one.  But I did find this that is cute.  "Love is friendship set on fire." by Jeremy Taylor

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I/we generally don't celebrate Valentine's Day.  However, we always celebrate our Anniversary.  Sometimes we do something small, like get a special dessert and watch a movie at home.  And other times we do something big.  But we also choose to acknowledge the day because that is the day we choose to acknowledge our love.

The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Monday February 6, 2012

Outside my window... Sunny and warm

I am thinking... about how I have been trying to post a Daybook since the beginning of January. I am hoping I actually finish this one today.

I am thankful for... all the baby items people have given me

From the learning rooms... We started back to half days last week.  We are focusing on the 3 Rs and putting off our main curriculum/history for another month or until I feel like we can accomplish it.

From the kitchen... We have been super blessed to receive a bunch of meals from other homeschooling moms.  We have had a couple different kinds of soup, chicken alfredo pasta and even a couple great desserts.  This weekend Jeff and I made a bunch of different soups.  Tonight we are going out to dinner.

I am wearing... my pajamas and a cardigan because I am cold

I am creating... more "to-do" lists... just because I can.  Oh, and also, because it is something I can easily do on my phone while holding a baby.  

I am going... to pick  my Mom up from the airport

I am reading... nothing, who has time for that right now

I am hoping... the baby sleeps for an hour so I can get some of the things on my To-Do list completed

I am hearing... the kids laughing at a cartoon and the baby swing creaking

Around the house...  I just spent the morning cleaning up some messes that I am not sure why exist.  Isn't that why I have a "helper" living with me?

One of my favorite specialty breastfeeding pillow I bought when I had Maggie.  I had loaned it to my SIL and asked her to return it but she never did.  Luckily she managed to find it after I asked again.  It is not the traditional "bobby" but a softer more flexible pillow and both Lillian and I prefer it to nurse with.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Tyler has PE and the kids have Co-Op on Thursday.  I am not sure if we will make it to the park on Friday.  The baby has a doctor appointment on Friday also.  Tomorrow is my birthday and I am taking the kids to see "Pinkalicious" at the theater downtown.
