Good Morning Ladies!
Well its 6am and my whole day has just changed.
Original Plan - Stay Home Vaccum and Mop floors clean bathrooms.

New Plan sit in Doctors Office with DD. UGH!
She's gotten into something and her eyes keep swelling up. The common conseneses is that she shared eyemake up with one of her girlfriends this weekend and caught something.:shake:

Fortunatly her doctor has a walkin side for sick kids nd they fit you in as the schedule allows. So its a waiting game. I'm hopeful to get there when he opens at 8 and get out before noon.

Will come hme and see what I can still get done and how bad the budget will be slammed:dollar: .

~Sorry about your DD,Laurie. I hope she feels better soon!
~Once again, Lisa, I am awed and inspired by your list. Can you send some of that energy over here?!
~I had a relapse into my cold yesterday and didn't really get anything done cause I felt so icky. So hopefully today I can get done the cleaning I wanted to get done yesterday. And the laundry, dishes, cooking, picking up, playing with the kids, ect. I might need to put on some music to get me going. I can't seem to get enough rest to make this cold go away. Urg.~

Laurie, hope your dd feels better soon & there is just a nibble out of your budget.
All you ladies are busy! I woke up with a nudge of energy & decided to go with it. So far I've sent dh off to work with a kiss & a hug, cruised the Village while sipping my tea, unloaded & loaded the dw, cleaned bath, made bed, dressed, hauled wood in for the fire, picked up the house, added some deposits to checkbook & pulled chicken and veggies from freezer for dinner.
Only thing left to do is the catbox, keep feeding the fire, putter on the puter and I'd like to finish reading my book. Glad I cleaned well the other day so I can relax more today without guilt.
Hope the deer come around again today, want to get out the camera and take a few pics & email them to someone who liked seeing them on the creek when he was here last week. Think he'd get a kick out of seeing them so close to the house. One was at the bottom of the backdoor stairs yesterday & 2 nearby. Looked like it was thinking about walking up the stairs, lol. :reind2:
Hope you all have a great day.

Laurie,
I hope your daughter is well soon and that it doesn't take too long at the doctor's office.

I had a friend come over and completely cleaned my kitchen and living room for me, including mopping and waxing the floors. That made me so happy.

Since I still have to be off my feet, I try to do things in the bedroom as I can.
I would like to go grocery shopping, but I'd have to do it on crutches. I may give it a try! Hope I don't fall!!

Other than that, I will balance my budget for the first week in March and see how I do.

I also have to pay bills today.

Hi Laurie, I hope your dds eye is nothing serious. It could be pink eye.
Today is just a lazy day at home. Dh is off work today and we are just sitting around doing nothing. It snowed yesterday after being so nice the last few days. Suppose to be back up in the mid 40's by saturday.

I have a load of laundry that needs folded and trying to think of something for supper.

Everyone have a good day.

Once the kids get some schoolwork and housework finished we will run a few errands.
~Need to run by my mom's office and make a run to the bank for her.
~The kids want to go to the library. So I will drop them off there while I do some mindless shopping at the antique store.
~This afternoon we will go to the ballfield so John, our pitcher and our catcher can practice together. That will last three to five hours so after that we will be home for the night.

I hope all is well with your dd. I have had problems lately with eye makeup. I can only use mascara and eye liner a couple of times and then need a new one. After a couple of uses my eyelash follicles get infected and I have to go get an antibiotic. I went out today and used some of my coupons and was so proud of my brain for having a good idea. I had some coupons for free dog food, we don't need because we don't have a dog. I got the free dog food anyhow, then drove the few blocks from the store to the pound and dropped my free scores off there. All that is left to do today is clean up from lunch and do the floors. I also have to figure out what is for dinner tonight.

~ put ham in oven for dinner tonight

DS Spent the night at ex's house (he is in VA and needs pets cared for). Had to call and get him up. Hopefully he made it to school (within walking distance of the house).
DD had an orthodontist appointment this morning. Just a consult. Got the estimated bill-$5K. Ouch! I hate the thought of payments but no way around that now as the EF and savings will be wiped out by their dental appointment on the 26th and oral surgeries on the 29th.
Made it in to work fine- no problems. Headache with sinus issues but it is a slow day so I will trudge on.
When I get home- finish laundry, sweep/mop and vac. Dinner will be tuna caserole.
Tomorrow is payday- so I will write out bills tonight.

Laurie, I hope your daughter's eyes feel better soon. Today I have made the bed, shoveled off the balcony (half heartedly) there was a layer of snow over the top of hardend snow and ice. It needs to melt a little before I can really get it off, maybe this weekend. I hear that it might be 40 degrees. :) I've loaded the dishwaher. I still need to feed the cats and clean their litter box. Then: I need to go to the bank, Aldis, and dollar store. Once I get back home I need to do some dusting and make dinner. I should vacuum, sweep, and mop the floors. I keep putting that task off. Have a great day everyone :)
