Stayed home from work, don't feel the greatest. DD is off to school. I'll just lay around, play on computer, read... DH is working in Tampa for the week, so there isn't any extra laundry to do. I didn't sleep well (with him not home), so I'll probably take a nap in a little bit. It's cloudy and humid here, so kind of dreary. Hope everyone has a great day!

~I'm sick today too. I woke up last night to take ds to the potty then couldn't fall back asleep because my head was so congested and my throat was so sore. Finally remembered I had some kids Orajel sore throat strips that I got FAR. Tasted like a cough drop but works great for hours! Still had less than 5 hours of sleep. So I'm not aiming to do anything today. Just rest if that's possible!~

Morning all....

I am puttering around the house today...
The dishwasher repair guy is coming between 8-5-so I am here for the day.
So far:
Laundry(2 loads)
Dishes done
Floors swept
Email answered

Still to do:
Finish application for the town planning board-(applying for my home business license)
I bought a new vacuum yesterday-everyone raves about the Dyson. I hope it lives up to its reputation. So I think I'll give it a whirl today.
Clean one of the bathrooms and figure out what to have for dinner.

Hope everyone is well and have a great day!!!

Dh and I had a nice relaxing morning. He took me out to breakfast. But once back home I cleaned the windows inside. I have some ironing to do today and catching up on emails from my sis.
Make Dinner
Gather Trash for tomorrow
Clean littler box
Sit with Dh and son to watch a movie
Go over English homework with son (English is not his subject in college, so I go over his papers and make corrections and help him understand why it needed to be corrected)

I am behind, I still need to:
Feed the cats
Clean the cat litter
Load dishes in the dishwasher
Get ready to go to my mom's house
Leave here by 4:30pm

Well, I can't believe DS is taking a 3 hour nap today - figures since I wanted to go to the bank and grocery shopping today, and he usually naps for an hour - we'll see if he can wake up in time for me to get out before DH gets home.

So far:
*Dinner in the crockpot
*Got through some email
*Did two loads of laundry
*Started calling daycare places

Most of what I've been working on is the daycare. I need to have a talk with DH and MIL as to what days my MIL will watch him, and what days he'll need daycare. But I've started working down my list and almost none of them have any openings. I've found one on the list so far and scheduled an interview with them, and I still have 7 or 8 more to go.

We had a good sunny 90 degree day here today in Texas!! It was my ds' bday, he turned 5!!

We took it easy and took a holiday from school to celebrate. We did one load of laundry and wiped down bathrooms. Then went to McD's for lunch and then to the park to play. The kiddos cam ehome and used sidewalk paint while I crocheted and the baby slept. Then I ran to the grocery store while ds was at karate and then picked him up and went to the new house. DH and I worked in the kitchen a bit. We are now going to eat homemade pizza per ds's request for his bday dinner then gonna eat ice cream and enjoy each other.
