Dreary rainy day.  The pups woke me up before 5 because they were scared of the thunder.  Ugh!  Of course they had to go out, but didn't want to because of the thunder.  SInce I was up, I stayed up and ddi a load of laundryand emptied the dishwasher, and paid some bills.  

We are about to leave for a play about the Kindertransport.  I am expecting to cry.  We'll have lunch out, stop at the post office, and then head to the library for Zeph's literature group.  I have a ton of books to pick up for history.  When we get home Zeph has a bit of school to do.  I have some more laundry and then it is a relaxing evening.  Dinner is minestrone soup, whole wheat rolls, and apples.

Dreary day here also.  Everyone was tired and a bit grouchy this morning.  I have a meeting at 10 and some small projects to work on all day long.  Hoping to run to the store at lunch as i never got there this weekend and we are low on a few things.  I have stuff for dinner tonight, but not lunches and no creamer for my coffee (yep, main priority in my house...)  Tonight DH should have looked over draft bills today so I can finalize them, more laundry, and cleaning.  I need to sit down and seriously write out a menu and plan for Emma's birthday party, its in less than 2 weeks now and all of a sudden I am starting to panic about it.  Dinner is either leftovers from our eating out for Jordyn's birthday last night since the girls didn't eat anything on their plate, or a zucchini pie.  Given the option, I think they'll end up eating leftovers, so DH and I will have the zucchini pie all to ourselves.

Have a good one!

Morning.  I got the kids up and out the door on time.  I am going to stop getting up at 6:30 since no one else does.  I wake them at 6:30 and they lay in bed until 7am.  No point in me getting up that early to make sure they have plenty of time, they don't care.  No one missed the bus today and both girls were wearing new shoes.  Today Matthew and I are probably going to find him some.  I didn't sleep too well last night and am not sure how tired I will be.  I need to run by the post office and mail something to Alysha.  I forgot in all my end of the month madness to mail her something I told her I would.  Ugh.  I feel bad.  I forgot to lay something out for dinner but all is not lost.  I get off at 2:30 and will have time to lay out some chicken I think.  It will be ready to cook on time.  I forgot to give Matthew a check for a t-shirt that he can't recall how much it cost.  So he has s igned blank check and I pray he doesn't lose it.  Lord, big problems if he does.  I need to see if he wrote it out yet and to who.  Just reminded him to keep it safe.  This was a very disorganized morning for me and I don't like that.  I felt flustered.
