I thrive in craziness, and running around and busyness.
It's become second nature to me, honestly, I can't sit still for very long without feeling like I should be up doing something, making something, fixing something, or cleaning or cooking.
Is this a homemaker thing? The constant need to be on the go?
I often laugh when I read or hear people dismiss the role of a homemaker as just a homemaker, you know like, "Oh she doesn't really do anything, she's just a homemaker". HA!
Obviously I can only speak for myself, but I have yet to have a day of doing not really anything, because there's always and I mean always something do to. At least in my house, matter of fact there's dishes to be done before they're even dirty because you know the minute you have everything washed and dried and put away, it's time to get them all out for another meal. Never ending, but in a good way.
It was a really busy day for me, again. Thankfully my sciatica didn't act out and my head/sinus thing was not too much of a bother.
Started early this morning with the menu plan, had about half of it written out but had to finish it and compile the grocery list so I could go shopping.
I find that I get a lot done in the early morning hours, right after my husband leaves for work and the children are still asleep. It's quiet, and I can think and plan and spend time with the Lord.
After dealing with some paperwork, I sat down and got in some hooky time, sitting by my back door with the sun starting to rise.
My blanket is coming along nicely. It's not big, it's going to be a lap blanket so it's faster to work up than if I was doing a big size one, which I would love to do but I need something I can pick up and quickly add some rows and get back to later.
With big projects I tend to get overwhelmed or lose interest fast and then they just sit there.
Ran some errands, got all the groceries done and back home before 11am.
My favorite time to get things done is early morning, I am not into big traffic and driving around during lunch time and rush hour. Actually, I may never have told you guys this but I really don't like driving and I hate highway driving the most hahahahah
While at the base commissary, I picked up two of my favorite chocolate bars, they remind me of my childhood in South Africa, especially the Crunchie which is my all time favorite. If you've never had one, and find one around, you should definitely give it a try. Yum!
Spent the rest of the day homeschooling, folding and putting away laundry and then make a quick supper of fried shrimp, pork egg rolls and a salad....with chicken dumplings for the girl who can't stand seafood. How is she my child? LOL
And just to show you what Jasmine's research paper is on. Sherlock Holmes. How fun.
Needless to say I think I'm more excited than she is hahaha
You can bet that I'll be reading these two books from cover to cover :)
Alright, now I need to get going, the new season of Face Off starts in just 6 minutes and we love watching this show as a family.
Have a wonderful night everyone, and thank you for stopping by :)
