Good Morning…..IT’s Monday….ARGH!!


I didn’t get everything done I wanted, but got quite a bit done.   I went to Menards while Tommy was sleeping and had some more house keys made and bought a new door handle for the downstairs bathroom.  Once I got home Tommy woke up and he and I went outside for a bit.  Then hubby took over so I could make supper.   Hubby loved the sloppy joes said they were his favorite recipe for them.   I have a couple of diffrent ones I make. 

After supper Erik and I did  a quick clean up of the living room and dining room.   I then worked in the kitchen for a bit.   I cut up and sauted about 15 green peppers, which are frozen and in the freezer for future recipes.  While that was cooking I mopped the kitchen floor really good on my hands and knees.  

At around 8:00 I started Tommy’s bedtime routine.  He went into the bath and was in bed with me by 8:30, but he really didn’t fall asleep well at all.  So I had to turn the light back on and I read for a while and he cuddled with me.   I finished my book:

Delectable Mountain – Earlene Fowler – 4/5

I started reading East of Eden for a few minutes before falling asleep.


I have to reschedule an appointment tonight since I found out there is a meeting at church tonight that they called and wanted me at.  ARGH.   I hope I can swing it.  I will then stay and work late tomorrow night instead.  I need to have a 7:00 meeting with a family this week.  

I have weight watchers weigh in today.   Will not be pretty.   Oh well……


Working late…..I have alot of homevisits and school visits tomorrow so I will be out of the office alot!   I just got a few new books on tape so I will have something to listen to at least.   I just started Little Hurricanes by Jennifer Weiner.  

Both boys are awake already since we are practicing on gettting up early since school starts on Thursday!   Erik will bein the 7th grade and going to school in our district for the first time.   Josh is starting his Senior year……oh my don’t get me crying again!

Time for me to hit the shower and get ready for work.   Hope you all have a great Monday!

SUPPER:   Teriyaki Chicken Breast and Vegetables

GRATITUDE:  Snuggles with my little boy…..and him asking “what’s your favorite color?”

  2. The sloppy joes sound really good! 

    I meant to comment a post or two ago and thank you for posting the Mall of America pictures-I love seeing pictures from home!  (I still consider MN home, even though I should probably think of OH as home for now).  Thank you!
