I have already:
~loaded & run the dishwasher
~started one load of laundry
~made the bed
~had breakfast
~studied for my quiz this morning

Not much on my agenda today. The snow is moving in and I am sure it won't be long before they are sending all the kids back home from school. We are supposed to have a wrestling meet today, but I bet it gets cancelled.
So far this morning I have:
Got everyone up, fed and out the door.
Cleaned up the kitchen.
Made the beds.
Wiped down the boys bathroom.
Still need to:
Sweep the dining room.
Do a load of laundry. Does it ever end?
Figure out what's for dinner tonight.
That's it for me today. Hope everyone has a great day!

Morning everyone!

It's 19 here right now with light snow. Not supposed to get much warmer than that, but I'll take Saturday we are supposed to be down in the single digits for our highs.

I'm ready to head out the door to the hospital to fight about my bills :fpunch: I hope it doesn't take all day because after that I need to head over to the shelter to volunteer for awhile. After that... come home and :laundry: and a few other odds and ends.

Hope you all have a great day! :)

So far I fixed hubby's breakfast and packed his lunch and got him off to work. I made my bed. I did most of the dishes. I baked a coffee cake because my daughter and 2 grandbabies are coming over for a visit!!! Took care of the cats and watched one of my favorite preachers on TV. Still need to fix dinner later. My daughter is giving me a haircut when she comes over. That saves me some money and we are having leftover lasgna for lunch. Should be a very nice day. IT's cold and alittle snow is on it's way. Have a great day!

Today I got to sleep in because the kids had a 2 hr delay due to weather, the school sent home a letter yesterday, so we got up to find that school was cancelled. The only thing planned for the day is some basic cleaning up around the house and cooking dinner. I also need to get our tax forms together and ready to take to the post office tomorrow.

It's snowing...dd was on a 2 hour delay to school, which I didn't realize until after she was up...oops! It's coming down pretty good out there--it's possible we could get up to 6 inches, but right now I don't think there is more than an inch out there. Dh went to work at 4:45 and will not be home until 7 tonight (inventory today and tomorrow). His company just got taken over yesterday by the new owners (a motor manufacturer from Arkansas).

Anyway, I have already:
*Got dd off to school (finally)
*Made our bed
*Stripped the kids' beds
*Washed both dd's sheets, dried and remade beds
*Drying ds's sheets now
*Currently washing some throw rugs that need it
*Cleaning out coffee maker with vinegar (monthly cleaning)
*Paid the gas bill
*Fed all animals
*Cleaned out litter box/taken trash out to garage
*Picked up some toys

Still on the agenda:
*Finish the kids' sheets
*Do the dusting
*Pay some bills
*Start working on grocery list (need to finish menu first)
*Fix dinner/clean up
*Give kids baths/put to bed

* ate breakfast (free bagel and milk day at work! woo hoo!)
* cleared my inbox at work
* applied a large billing debit to a client's account
* did the schedule and image

I still need to:
* submit the banners and special events graphics
* set up the cycle 0 billing lists
* go to the doctor
* take some invitations to friends for our anti-superbowl party
* look online at our paystubs (direct deposited at midnight tonight)
* make a menu for next week

Well its been a heavy day. I went to the funeral of a childhood friends father today. We buried him next to "Mom" I was ther the day she died 30 years ago. It was also tought because my ex husband works for my childhood friend and was there too.But we spoke of "Dad" and managed to avoid each other the rest of the day. Such a strange feeling. DD went with me and we had a good mother/daughter bonding day.
Came home in the rain about 75 out and very windy. Took a nap and now have made dinner "convict supper" and am cleaning up. To work with DH tommoorow life goes on.
