Happy Homemaker Monday



Happy Homemaker Monday


Do you ever notice that times seems to go faster when the sun is shining?  I'm pretty sure it does!

The weather.....
Well, last week was u.g.l.y.  BUT the sun is back, and the weather is perfect!  Sunshine today, mild breezes, and big beautiful clouds!  I'm not even looking at the forecast because I don't want to know if we lose the warmth any time soon!  It's SO nice!

Right now I am....
Listening to the dishwasher whirring and trying to type this with perfect posture.  I had an appointment with a new chiro last week and evidently I have horrible posture.  Something about a right hip tilting up and knocking everything out of whack...oh yeah, it's called be a mom.  {Being told that just totally hit my sarcastic button.  Really, I'm leaning to the left?  I had no clue that popping a baby on your hip for the last ten years would cause that...rant over.  Just give me my massage!}
 
Thinking....
About my grocery list!  Why does it seem like we are out of every possible thing all at once.  My list is full of fruits and veggies and healthy foods that need prep time...but the schedule says, "Fix it fast, there's baseball everyday!"  We'll see what happens.  I kind of want to grab some Chinese leftover boxes and box up some super yummy stir fry to eat on the go!
...and thinking that finding TWO ticks on McClain's head today is enough for a lifetime!  ACK!  Thankfully, they were still just sort of crawling around and had not made a home, so they were easy to get off of him.  But still...grooooossss!!!!

On my reading pile....
The Bible.  Sometimes I stress about not having/finding time to read all the goods books that are on my list, but really, the Bible is a perfect read everyday.  It's always with me (on my phone) and is great for quick snip-its or longer reading times.  I don't have to worry about finishing it or returning it.  It's always perfect!  The kids and I started a 7-day Bible reading program on Friendship tonight.  Can't wait to do this with them, too!

On my TV.....
Still catching up on a few old episodes of The Office.

What I found while surfing the net....
I love the 36th Avenue blog.  They have some great Teacher Appreciation ideas this week.

On the menu for this week....
Check back after my trip to Costco. ;)

On my to do list....
Laundry
Sorting and switching out clothes for SUMMER!
Scheduling end-of-the-year homeschool checks


Looking forward to this week....
A field trip to the zoo with the boys.  Their teachers are so awesome and have worked it out so both boys can be in my group!  

Looking around the house....
Our ceiling fan/light in the living room bit the dust, so we have a big hole in the ceiling until we can find the perfect replacement.  Why is that such a hard decision...and why do those things cost so much?  Just outside our front and back doors are our beautiful freshly stained porch and deck!  That was a quick but intense little project today.  I actually have a blister from the paint brush!  

From the camera....

The clouds were amazing today!

On my prayer list.....
Still praying about Maddox's ear issues.  We absolutely cannot figure out why they are draining so much.  We are seeing the chiropractor and our pediatrician.  We have medicines.  Nothing is working perfectly, although he does seem a bit better than a week ago.  I know it's not the end of the world, but it's still worrisome and stressful to have a child with a chronic problem!  I'm thankful he's so happy despite his ears having to feel pretty awful!

There are some super amazing things happening in the lives of people at Willow Creek!  I love love love all the people at our church and can't express enough thanksgiving for getting to be apart of it all!  

 Bible verse, Devotional....
Here's the verse from the kids' Friendship Bible Reading for today:  
Proverbs 17:17  
A friend is always loyal, 

and a brother is born to help in time of need.

I'm thinking if I went to a chiro, I would probably be told the same thing LOL I don't think I have very good posture, especially when I'm sitting down, but it's the mom thing, we don't get to sit down often and relax and when we do our body just relaxes completely LOL
