Good morning everyone. I had big plans for the day but this cold is still dragging me down. I had another sleepless night last night so I'm tired and grouchy this morning.

I have to do today:
Bath, shave legs, wash and do hair & makeup
Go to a funeral at 10 (ok, enough funerals already--this is about 4 in the past 2 weeks!)

I wanted to do but don't know if I have the umph or not:
Go into the city to run errands and pick up stuff for a baby shower I'm helping with and maybe a little thrifting. I'm just so tired I don't know if I'm able or not. I'll know after the funeral.

I hope everyone has a great day. I'm off to hop in the tub and see if I can get the blood flowing.

~ we have short lessons for Friday and a fun science activity.
~ Clean children's bathroom
~ Wipe down kitchen & put away clean dishes
~ have a friend coming over to watch the children while I go to an appointment this afternon - so need to straighten up for that
~ Still have laundry - always have laundry

~So far today I've washed a load of laundry, loaded the dishwasher, organized the bathroom closet and put another thin plastic container under my bed for my huge stockpile of BBW lotion. I still need to;
~organize under my kitchen sink, it's a disaster zone!
~get out cheese from freezer for pizza tonight
~hang laundry to dry in sunroom

~sew some totes
Just a regular house day around here.I'm doing pretty well on my 2007 goals so far. I've been reading about 5 books a day to each of the kids(the 20 page type). Tomorrow I'll be hitting another goal of getting them outside more because we're going to the zoo. Supposed to reach 70* tomorrow! I'm on the right track with my goals I think. Have a great day everyone!

I've accomplished my usual routine of:

Feeding the starving (cat)
Drinking a glass of OJ and taking my pills
Reading email
Cleaning out the email box
Cleaning the kitty box

And then I faced writing a difficult response to an email

The email took up time and now it's lunch time; and I realize I forgot to eat breakfast. Wasn't much hungry anyway. I'll go raid the fridge (left over meatloaf) and eat a good lunch and make up for the skipped meal, which I rarely do.

Goals: I've been drinking more water and have cut back my caffeine intake lots ... going cold turkey on caffeine makes me crazy so I'm doing it gradually.

Today was a good day.

*Took my aunt out for lunch (ok, she paid but I drove and brought a cute baby)
*Ran the dishwasher
*Cleaned the kitchen and dining room table
*Made dinner
*Packaged up an item I sold on eBay to mail tomorrow
*Went to my doctor's appointment

Not a whole lot, but I got in quality time with family. It was nice to see my aunt and my MIL babysat while I was at my dr's appt, so I got to visit with her, too. Now I'm just waiting for DH to get home so we can eat.

going to put on my comfy p.j's and watch t.v. for the rest of evening. I'll start in on the housework in the morning.

I only spent $17.xx at the grocery store this week just milk, bread and produce. So if I keep this up I will keep my budget for the month.
Did exercise 4 times this week.
Drinking more water and eating healthy.
Have not had a soda for 2 weeks.
