Good morning!  Looks like another rainy day, but at least it is warm.  I have windows open and the fresh breeze feels wonderful.  Laundry is going.  I have 3 boxes of misc. stuff to unpack, some dishes to wash by hand, and I'd like to get kitchen floor mopped.  Buffy's big hound feet continually leave a muddy path from the back door.  Today DH is taking 2 carloads to Goodwill.  He has more boxes to break down in the garage too. 

Zeph has a pre-algebra test and I hope he's prepared.  He and DH are going bowling to use his 3 free practice games from his league.  He also mentioned wanting to make desert for poetry night tonight. 

Lunch today is tuna sandwiches for the men folk and orzo feta spinich salad for me.  Dinner is a taco casserole.

Good morning ladies!  Jordyn received her early decision acceptance letter to her top school last night!  So it was a good evening. Laughing  I got up early this morning, took a shower, make pear and raspberry danishes and almost made it to work on time.  I have lunch plans with co-workers from my old department.  Nothing much planned for this evening, DH is out of town today and is hoping to be back by this evening, but we'll see.  Not sure what's for dinner yet, I ended up making a soup last night when I got home, so possibly leftovers tonight.

Have a great day!

Yay Jordyn! 

Top school is the one you're visiting in a couple of days right?

It's a quiet day.  I am doing laundry, I have put it off since Saturday.  It's to a point where I have to now.  LOL  I am working on making my curtains with the sheets I bout on Thursday.  I need to cover the windows on either side of the front door and finally figured out how.  I didn't want the tension rod up there that was there when he bought the house.  I didn't like that.  I will be sweeping and mopping the floor in the kitchen.  I need to run an errand to the doctors office and pick up a new script for Natalie.  I waited to late now I have to wait until the open back up after lunch.  

I haven't figured out dinner and the day if half over.  Not sure what I am going to do.

Hi everyone! Today has been pretty good so far. And dh actually told me that he is proud of the way I'm dealing with the kids lately - a big deal to me considering the fact that about a month ago he made it plenty clear that he was very unhappy with it. This afternoon I need to get some things done around the house and take care of a few administrative tasks. I also need to sign up for teacher conferences. I am contemplating doing another round of cake pops for concessions at the high school girls swim meet this Saturday. I have everything I need except colored sprinkles in school colors and possibly time... Tonight Evan has Scouts and Megan has swim practice. Dh is going to Aikido class so it's just the three of us. Dinner is pork chops, applesauce, potatoes, and broccoli. Have a great day everyone!

Hi everyone. Today was a little crazy at work. We have one TA who is out for the week, the rest of the staff in the room had to rotate in and out for a meeting all morning, we had the book fair, and in the afternoon, I had to cover for the teacher and lunch;break times were messed up.  We are averaging 3-4 students absent per day, in a class of 13. Our behavior problem student is supposed to return tomorrow

Ian had a regular school day, took his tech test and thinks he did well. He got his school pictures which are awful and he found out when retake day is. Tonight, he has scouts.

Kayleigh had a typical school day, and has a new romantic interest. It's been awhile since she's dated anyone.

Tonight, making pecan pancakes and sausage, then watching tv and relaxing with some wine
