wow. youve gotten more done this morning that i do on a regular day.
a really big chunk of me dreams of being a sahm. i guess i first need to become a mom and then i can work on the sah part ;) i would love to be the gas behind a full running powerful machine like home. on top of the chores, home made meals, making it the sanctuary that i know it could be.

Kids are still in school until May 25th (was going to be the 12th but they have a ton of snow days to make up).
I have work today so the usual routine there. There is still money left over and today is Payday so I get to play with the extra funds (Go Debt reduction!) I have to finish laundry and put away clothes, clean the bathrooms and take care of the floors. DS is house sitting this weekend so I need to take him shopping for food and let him pick up some videos.
