Weekend Talk!1:01 PM
Is it just me or do the weekends seem to fly by? I don't get time to sit back with the family and have fun because before you know it, it's Sunday afternoon and you realize you didn't really get everything done. There's still a bunch of curtains on the kitchen table waiting to be sewed, there's still pockets for the advent calendar waiting in the sewing box, there's yet another two loads of laundry overfilling the hamper and this and that.
I used to get frustrated and try to finish as much as I could before Monday rolled around, but you know it's not worth me overdoing it for nothing, when everyone is off to school and work in the morning then I can concentrate on that.
Tomorrow is pay day for us military folks which means errands, grocery shopping, visiting the gas station which I just loathe lately. No matter what ludicrous amount of money you spend on the gas you never really have enough and half the time you drive around with the gas light on. Or is that just me?
Yesterday we took Nicholas's Brown Bear around and snapped some photos for his class project, he was so excited.
Back home we couldn't help but chuckle at the girls in their little outfits. They LOVE wearing clothes and we usually don't make them wear anything but once in a while we put it on and they get all happy LOL
Lola is Little Miss Attitude and Bella was Ruff Rocker LOL
It's been pretty quiet here today, Curt took Nicholas to the park a while ago and left Jasmine with me. We like taking the kids out individually for some one on one time with us, this way they don't feel like one is getting more attention than the other. While they were gone I got the kitchen clean, the dishes done and the living room curtains washed....I'm busy sewing some new ones now but I'm not sure I'll have them finished today.
I'm not feeling all too well. Without the IUD, the doctor has put me back on the birth control pills and they're making me a little nauseous and giving me a headache, so I'm a little grouchy today. I did manage to get my menu plan for the next two weeks done and posted so I guess I've done something productive today LOL
Dinner tonight is a Potato and Onion Soup and some Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, dessert will be some Ice Cream Sandwiches made with the Molasses Oat Cookies that I baked yesterday. Yum!
Starting tomorrow I'll be doing a week of Color, every day will be a different color and I'll post photos of items around the house or outside that match the color. If anyone wants to join in they're more than welcome :) Right now I'll leave you with the Sunday Linkies, just a few more of my favorite blogs.
