Happy Homemaker Monday - 09/09/2013

Oh goodness, I'm so tired of being busy, I need to slow down and very soon.

You know what I miss the most?  Just sitting on my couch with my crochet, watching mindless TV.  Maybe in a month or two I can finally get there, but for now there is just too much going on around me.

I want to quickly apologize to you all for not yet making it around to visit you, I assure you that it's on my mind and that every day I say to myself that I need to go say hi, and then life gets in the way and by the time I get a free moment it's 11pm.  I do thank you all for continuing to come by and visiting me through this difficult busy adjustment period :)

The weather.....
Cold this morning.  I actually feel great saying that LOL  It's only 50 degrees this morning, usually I only saw that kind of temp in December back in Arizona, I think I need to get my body used to cold weather again. 

Right now I am....
Thanking the Lord above for again seeing us through a difficult time.  Writing this post up, planning lessons and thinking about what I have to do today. 

That I'm blessed in so many ways and that I need to remember that when a struggle arises, instead of going straight into worry mode.  

On my reading pile....
Have two books from the library to finish reading, both from the Civil War period.  Also have quite a few for reviews coming up :)     

On my TV.....
Same thing, still haven't had a chance to watch any of it.
The Great British Bake Off
Hell on Wheels
True Blood
White Queen
Breaking Amish

On the menu for this week....
Have been making a lot of easy meals, all Portuguese and from my childhood.  Everyone here has been enjoying every single minute of it.

Monday - Amish Chicken Pot Pie
Tuesday -  Tacos, Mexican Rice, Salad
Wednesday - Italian Crockpot Sandwiches
Thursday - Chicken Spaghetti
Friday -  Homemade Pizza
Saturday - Beef Stew
Sunday - Veggie Soup, Sandwiches, Fruit

On my to do list....
Homeschooling with 4 kiddos
Take my brother to the bank
Take my brother to get his car registration
Take my niece to dancing
Take remaining 3 kiddos to Tae Kwon Do

In the craft basket....
Crochet, crochet, crochet.  I'm told myself that there is no more putting it off, it's time to get through my huge pile of yarn and start cranking out the projects so I can start selling them.
Looking forward to this week....

Oh boy....I am just basically looking forward to some quiet time whenever I can get it.  Not sure when that will be LOL
Also looking forward to one of my favorite shows returning "Haven".

Looking around the house....
The two boys are up and playing on the X-Box.  Hubby left for work early this morning.
I have some dishes in the sink that need to be washed, a dishwasher that needs to be emptied and refilled, and some other housework.
Living room needs picking up and I need to give my carpets a good cleaning, they're not dirty but I like running the carpet cleaner at least twice a month. 

From the camera....
This past Saturday it was Air Force Appreciation Day.  It was fun seeing the parade that we used to attend and also seeing my husband's old Squadron at this base. 


On my prayer list.....
My stepmom
My father
My brother and sister in law, they have put in job applications in quite a few places so hoping to hear something back soon

Bible verse, Devotional....
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
– 2 Corinthians 4:7-9 (NIV)

I know how you feel about the busyness. My life has been go, go, go, and that is just with everyday stuff; never mind the extraordinary (albeit wonderful) things that have been happening in yours! Wishing good things for you and your family.

Jen said...

My goodness you are one busy lady! Your menu looks so good! I'm praying your brother and SIL find jobs soon.

I love Happy Homemaker Monday! Have a wonderful week and enjoy the cooler temps. (It has finally cooled down some here in Phoenix thanks to all the rain we have been getting).

Dawn said...

I did this too! Hope you don't mind. Always looking for more ways to keep my blog going. I hope your husband is settling in and enjoying his new job. I also hope you find that time again to relax.
