I did it again didn't I?!?!?!

The template I came here expecting pink and blue and got something completely different. Have I told you lately that I love you I get bored easily??? LOL

I'm sorry if I make your heads spin with all the different templates, I think I'll stick with this one for a while though so don't worry.

Come on in and sit with me, I have some Cinnamon Coffee and some Banana Nut Muffins waiting.....there's a chill in the air today and we're expecting thunderstorms this afternoon.
You should see the clouds outside, beautiful but scary looking too.....very low and dark just slowly creeping up on the base, gives you that ominous feeling.

I have packing to do today and need to go through every room and do an inventory of what we have, take pictures of stuff and also jot down serial and model numbers. Eden asked me if we're not letting the movers do the packing for us.......the answer is NO.....they will pack the bigger stuff but we're doing all the other packing ourselves just have to leave the boxes unsealed so they can check what is in there before taking them. We're doing a Partial Dity move so a bunch of things are going with us.

We're doing pretty good, we don't like leaving everything until the last minute so we're already packing and getting it all ready, obviously not stuff we need for everyday use but there's things like knick knacks, pictures, books, movies etc that don't need to wait until moving day.

A few months ago I talked about my daily schedule, I can't function without it, I think it also helps the kids know what is coming next and beats the boredom bug which usually leads to "sibling fights".
With so much going on here lately I ended up sort of falling off the bandwagon and not sticking to the routine so much and what happens when I do that???? Laundry is overflowing, I don't have time for anything and the housework tends to get left behind, so I went back to the schedule and I'm posting it for you so you have an idea of what my days look like.

You should have seen my face when I brought out my schedule again, big huge grin from ear to ear because I know my days are saved and I can use them to the fullest without wasting precious time. Have you ever gotten to the end of the day and realized you did NOTHING but also didn't have a free moment for anything??? How exactly does happen???

I've been going through my blog and rereading it all from the beginning, I had no idea how much I would enjoy it, it's really been fun reminiscing and seeing what I was doing this same time last year, here's something I realized though.......last year must have been my COLD AND FLU Year...honestly, how sick can someone be for a whole dog gone year??? LOL

I also came across a post I made with some photos Curt and I took while using our telescopes. We love astrophotography and have been wanting to get into it, but the amateur photos we've taken so far are just amazing so I can't even imagine the ones we'll have once we actually KNOW what we're doing. LOL

Here is just one, you'll have to go check out the actual post to see the others.

And that's it for me this monday, Oh, don't forget to check out my Menu Plan Monday, we're having the Asian Beef Wraps for dinner again tonight, they've become a huge hit at our house.

Have a great day everyone!

Hey Sandra! We thought about doing a DITY move, but ended up not doing that. lol

I love you the telescope pic - it looks great!

I love having a daily schedule. It's nice to know I'm not the only person that writes everything out to do for the day. lol

Have a great day packing!!! lol Steve and I unpacked 2 more big boxes yesterday, and I have unpacked a big one today. Now we only have the 2 boxes in the living room and the 7 boxes in Olyvia's room to go!!! Finally!!

I have a schedule like that, too!! In fact, today I was just thinking about my new one for the suumer. I will post it soon. Do you really do warm milk and cookies every night? What sweet mom you are. I should think up a good bedtime ritual like that, too. I bet that will be one of their favorite memories when the grow up.

Kara said...

I love the look :) Wow at your daily schedule! I think I'd go nuts with that much structure lol, but that's just the way I am, very go-with-the-flow type gal.

Kelli said...

I love your new look, Sandra! Your schedule looks great, I should get my old one out again too. :0) Grace loves schedules! LOL
Have a great day!

Jen said...

Sounds like a busy day. I packed up the master bedroom today......with both kids home its kind of odd now. Taking a break now.

Barb said...

It no longer even surprises me when I see a new template over here, Sandra. I think changing your template and your whole look is your favorite hobby. LOL I like the clean lines of this one.

That list. Oh my word. I'm exhausted just looking at that list.

I just read the previous post, too, and I can't tell you how happy I am for her. She's been through an awful lot and I'm tickled pink she fell in love again and is getting married. I know you won't let us down - you'll take lots of photos, right?

You'd better! :-)

I don't envy you having to pack LOL At least you're doing the smart thing and starting early by getting those uneeded items packed up early while you can! Good luck!
