Another week seems to be flying by me.   Remember when you were a kid
and time took so LONG to pass….wow, that sure isn’t the case when
you’re an adult!


Monday was a busy day at work.   I am still working on organizing all
the donations that my co-workers are giving me for a family I work with
that had their home destroyed by fire.  We also had a section meeting
where the administration talked about ideas they had to lighten our work
load since our case loads are going to continue to rise with no new
hires in sight.  I currently serve nearly 70 families, which is becoming
unmanageable.  I was audited and my supervisor was happy with my work. 
Good thing!  I had a late meeting on Monday night.  I left there at
about 6:30 or so.  On the way home I got the worse headache I have ever
had in my life.  I could barely keep my eyes open to drive.  WEIRD!!  I
went home and went straight to my bedroom where I laid in the dark with
a cold pack on my head.  Hubby gave my aspirin and some percocet.  That
eventually got it to a dull roar so I could sleep.   Luckily I didn’t’t
plan on going into the office on Tuesday.


Erik had as appointment for an assessment on Tuesday so I didn’t go to
work.  I went to the meeting and then came back home to sleep. My head
still hurt a lot!  I did a few things around the house in the evening
and went to bed by 8:30 or so with Tommy.  He and I listened to Judy
Blume’s Tale of a 4th Grade Nothing on my MP3 player.  He seemed to enjoy
that.  After he was asleep I got back up for a bit.   I looked through
my new Taste of Home’s Simple and Delicious Magazine.  I finally
thought of a good way to mark the recipes each month I want to try.  I made a
copy of the index in back and simply highlighted the recipes to try.  I
will then keep that highlighted copy in a binder for future meal



Another busy day,  I dropped Tommy off at Preschool and helped him pass
out his valentines.  I had gone through some of the books we had at
home and took some to donate to the library at the New Christian School. 
They don’t have very many books yet and the kids are really enjoying
the Magic Treehouse Books so I gave some of those and Junie B Jones
books.  I think I will continue to keep my eyes out to find some more books
for them.  This is the school that Tommy will be starting in September. 
I might just see if I can find a lot of those type of books on Ebay to
give to the school.  I want to keep the set of Magic Treehouse books we
have for when I have grandkids.  Tommy and I enjoy reading them now! 
Of course I will keep my eyes out for good books for their library at
garage sales this summer as well.   We frequently donate to the school by
getting books and other learning items they need.  

Then I had to take the cats to the vet.  Robbie needed to have another
glucose curve competed today . He currently is getting 3 units of
insulin twice a day, but his sugar level is too high and he is vomiting
again.  Oh Joy!  Molly also went along to have a complete exam for the day.  
I stopped off at Wal-Mart and grabbed a movie my hubby wanted for
Family Movie night as his Valentine’s gift.  He wants a notebook computer
and I think we will end up getting that for him in the very near future. 
He can never go on his computer now that it is in the basement as we
have to be upstairs to supervise Erik and everything.   So if I am not
home he has to be upstairs and even my laptop is in a place that doesn’t
give you the best view of what is going on either. 

Well I am done eating my lunch so it is back to work for me.  I will
have to post this when I get home as I can’t assess my blog from work any
longer.  Bummer!  Don’t they realize that the 30 minutes while I eat my
lunch is the only free time I have all day!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your loved ones!!!


The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova  – 3/4 – Everyone loved this book, but I really didn’t get that excited over it.  I had a hard time staying with it.  It probably would have been better to read this one rather than to listen to it.   I am not that big on vampire lore either…..

  1. For several years, I have subscribed to one or another of Taste of Home magazines.  Your idea about hi-lighting the recipes in the index is great – such a simple solution to a problem that I run into all the time.

  2. Have you guys thought about doing wireless internet? That way you could move around with the laptop? It is nice to be on the couch with the laptop… even though I seldom really do it.

  3. You’ve been so busy! I just subscribed to Simple and Delicious (I used to get them years ago as Quick Cooking), so I really like your idea about how to mark the recipies to try. Can’t wait to get my copy. Wireless internet sounds like a great idea. If I had a laptop, I’d park myself on the couch while someone else sat at the PC!
