Good Morning….


My SIL came over and Kristen and Tommy played for a while.  I did get the dining room table cleaned off, but now it is full of clean clothes again.  I got a few loads of laundry done last night.   I didn’t get to the baking though.    I visited with SIL, did laundry, did dishes and marinated some steaks for supper tonight.  I won’t be home so hubby will be cooking.  

Tommy and I headed to bed around 9:30, a bit later than usual, but I had to wash up the dishes before I could go to bed.

MrsCatherine wrote a nice post yesterday about adding little touches to our outside/entrance.   It inspired me to sweep off our porch and clean up a bit.   I also bought a new welcome mat when we were at home depot.   I hope it is inviting.   It is sort of boring. 


I woke up feeling pretty rested this morning!   I was pretty productive already this morning.   So far this morning I have done the following:

  • Showered and dressed for work

  • Re booted the dryer since the sheets were not dry

  • Baked Banana breakfast bars (recipe below)

  • Got Erik, Tommy and Josh up and moving

  • Wiped down both bathrooms and cleaned mirrors

Today is Tommy’s frist day of Preschool so I will be going into work later.  I have to drop him off at 9:00 and than my hubby will pick him up on his lunch and take him to daycare.  It is nice to go in later twice a week since I can get some things around the house done in the morning hopefully.  I don’t always wake this rested.  

I need to get ot the bank and stop and buy Erik some more flouride rinse for his teeth. 

At work today I am going out to visit a new client so I have to get to the office and review their file.  I will work a little later tonight to make up for going in late.

  4. All I can say is………WOW!  You work and you get so much done! I could take lessons from you.  Love the entrance and the welcome mat.  I guess I should add sweeping the front porch to my list of things to do today. I’m going to use the breakfast bar recipe. It’s so hard getting up with 2 kids going to HS now!
