Isn't today the first day of Spring?!? Well, we didn't get the memo, it's currently snowing. :)

What a glorious weekend! DH was home, and we didn't have to be ANYWHERE! Hooray! We all got caught up on our sleep and my home and laundry situation is immensely better! What a great way to start the work week.

Today is busy. During my lunch hour, a guy and his fiance are coming to my work to test drive my Explorer. Eeek! Please send good thoughts that he likes it and makes a reasonable offer! I love my Explorer, but it's time to get serious on that nasty four lettered word called DEBT.

After work and school dd1 starts a new bball program for 3 weeks that is run thru the school. Sigh. More basketball. lol

Enjoy your day, everyone!

Well apparently we got the memo here. Supposed to rain all day. Going to the grocery store. Almost bought butter but realized I had crisco so will use that to make a pie crust.

After shopping need to clean and get the dishes straightened away and cleaned. Do some reading and maybe beef up my resume.

Snowing and blowing here too! Yuck! Home with a sick child again today. Last week it was his brother and now this week it's the other one! I have been doing laundry non stop and cleaning bathrooms multiple times. I am going to be disinfecting my house today...I have air sanitizer and lysol, I will be spraying my house from top to bottom with both. I can't afford to have anyone else sick, including myself! I'm going to put a lentil soup in my crockpot, and may make some baked goodies as well....it all depends on how much more cleaning and laundry I will have to do today! I feel so bad when my kids are sick...but get so annoyed with all the cleaning and laundry, not to mention how exhausting it is! Hope you all have a wonderful day! :)

Waiting on the snow here too.

It's Monday... I got out of bed, isn't that enough???? :lol:

Diva off to school, science fair project delivered, coffee consumed - I am taking a few hours off from life before I have to go get her from school again.

Cook dinner, do dishes.... blah blah blah

I think I am going to knit some dishcloths -- now, where did I leave that kitchen yarn????

Beautiful day here in Florida. Temperature is mild and breezy. Don't have to watch grandkids today, so I am just going to piddle around the house. Still have some unpacking to do. But if I don't feel like doing it, I'm not gonna do it!! Not going to spend any money today either. Not going anywhere. (Tomorrow of course is a different matter).

We are off to a great start with the homeschooling and cleaning today. The kids aren't very happy that we have school while the local public schools have spring break, but I know they will thank me for switching things once their grandparents come into town next month. We are going to try to have no spend days most of this week and are off to a good start today.
