Good morning! It's getting colder again. Yesterday we tied our record got up to 67*. I like the warm temps, but they make my allergies flare up. So I was up sneezing my head off this morning.

Today is a "short" day for me, the boys only have about 1hr 45m of school today because of parent-teacher conferences. I wish they would just give them the whole day off. It's such a PITA to drop them off, then come home & have enough time to shower and have to turn around and go pick them up. I also have to pick up their PTO sales order... $150 worth of Little Caesar pizza kits :rolleyes: I don't know where the heck I'm going to put the freezer freezer is full of 5 turkeys lol. Hopefully my mom will stop by this weekend & pick it all up!
Dh also gets out of work a tad early today so we are going to take the kids bowling after dinner. They don't know so it will be a nice surprise. We haven't taken them bowling since before dh lost his job in January of this year.

Already I have done:
~loaded the dishwasher
~cleaned off the stove, table, tiny bit of counter
~put a clean table cloth on the dining room table
~made the bed

I still need to:
~do more laundry
~fold laundry
~sweep the kitchen & mudrooms
~take out hamburger for dinner

I also plan on knitting more on dh's socks. I'm less than an inch from turning the heel WHOO HOO!!! :lol: Hopefully by tonight I'll be working on the gusset. It will take me forever to get to the toe though because he has HUGE feet.

I tried to get back into my "flat" two-needle knitting, but it's still boring to me. I had to go back to something more challenging. Even the lace scarf I'm working on is boring me to tears. I have to force myself to finish it though. It's a Christmas present.

Good Morning all

They are calling for more rain
Today I have to keep an eye on the basement because we had water coming in from all the rain we had.
My MIL is taking me to get some grocerys today.
More cleaning and decluttering.
Possible DH is taking me out for supper for our anniversary! That is up in the air still.
And the usual cleaning.

So far, I've been up and fed the baby.
I went and worked out.
I did my algebra homework.

I don't have to be at work until 12, so I am going to work on the cross-stitched pillow cases I am giving dh's sis for Christmas and spend time with the baby. I might do dishes, or I might not. I might even do laundry. If I'm ambititious.

It is nippy outside here today too, 39º but is suppose to warm up to 50s later today. The sun is shining so I say "let the warming begin :D" . I have to work tonight so today will not be a real productive day here at home. I just plan to get some soup in the crockpot to eat over the weekend and do some dusting and straightening and wash my scrubs for work and then I am done. I will take a nap this afternoon and then off to work for the beginning of my weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Have a great weekend everyone!

*Called about the "prompt pay discount" on a medical bill and saved $60.
*Got all of the paperwork ready to fax it for my FSA
*Showered and dressed
*Got the mail
*Took DS for a walk in the stroller

Yup, that's about it. I didn't even make dinner. :hungry:
