Good morning.  I just turned off the air and opened the wondows- beautiful outside!  Laundry is started, dishwasher emptied and  I'm ready to start school, but my student is still sleeping!  Between tennis and the Nerf battle, Zeph was exhausted. 

 Today we have no where to go and my plan is to fit in a day and a half of school and a ton of laundry.   I:' making porkchops with sweet potato quinoa cranberry patties for dinner.

Morning.  Nothing exciting this morning.  Winding down school.  I am sure they SHOULD be studying for finals but not once have I seen then crack open a book.  Katie was still writing a short story over the weekend.  I though final grades were in already.  I looked at Matthew's Math grade and it's a high D.  His counselor said he could make a 50 on his exam and he'd still pass the class.  I want at leat an 80 something on that exam, get grade up to a C at least.  But, no summer school at least.  I am busy this morning.  I need to order a book for a person here and she was giving me a hard time as to whom I will order it from.  The company she wants me to order it from has a strange process that isn't cohesive to how the University does order so they are saying use another book store/company.  Anyway, that is what I am dealing with first thing.  Concerned for any friends I still have in Oklahoma.  Not sure where every lives anymore so not sure if any were afected by the tornado.  Trying not to worry.  Praying all are alright.  *sigh*

Dinner will be hamburgers tonight.

I had to double check it was Tuesday when I started the thread this morning, I feel like it should be farther along in the week already.

Emma had field day today, and while I watched her fill her bag with stuff she needed, I realized this morning a towel did not go in and I am now wondering if she had an extra pair of shoes.  I feel like a horrible mother for not doing it myself.  I started a roast, potatoes and carrots in the crock pot this morning so we'll have dinner when we get home.  I have a telephone conference at noon today, I need to walk over to the post office to get stamps and mail out graduation announcements also and a few other projects I am working on.  Tonight I have cleaning to do, and paperwork for DH to get out the door. 

Have a great day!

I couldn't get that site to open for me, but found it on another site. They look really good, though I wonder about the cranberry, just because I am not a big fan of cranberry unless its cranberry sauce at thanksgiving. I may give these a try this weekend without the cranberry and see how it works out first. Thanks so much!
