Happy Homemaker Monday - 04/18/20165:58 AM
Good morning everyone, I hope you've had a great weekend. Mine was busy and also filled with some emotional moments related to my daughter. We are having a really hard time with her and I find myself at a loss for words.
There is so much I want to say and do, and yet I find that at times I feel completely overwhelmed and helpless, almost wanting to run away and not have to deal with any of it. I can say that I never in my life dreamed that things would turn out this way or that we would be having these issues. She has a doctor's appointment tomorrow and I'm hoping and praying that we get some answers and some help. Please keep her in your prayers.
Breakfast time....what is on the plate this morning::::
Just a cup of coffee right now, and said coffee is actually cold at the moment. I don't know if I'll eat anything, I'm not really hungry.
On today's to do list::::
The Never List by Koethi Zan.
On the TV today::::
I don't know if I'll have much time to watch anything. To be honest, I don't know if it's even a fact of time, but more that I don't feel like watching anything, my head is too filled with worries to really concentrate on watching anything.
The weather outside is::::
We've had quite a lot of rain lately and pretty bad weather. Our highs will be in the 70's this week but we will still be getting some overcast skies and rain here and there.
On the menu this week::::
I only have meals planned until Thursday, I need to work on the new menu and go grocery shopping Thursday or Friday morning.
Monday - White Castle Sliders, Fries, Root Beer floats
Tuesday - Mexican Tortilla Stack, Salad
Wednesday - Chicken Tetrazzini, Garlic Bread
Saturday - Jasmine's Birthday Party, I'm doing a buffet style finger food meal.
Deviled Eggs, Pigs in a blanket, Fried Pickles with Ranch, Mini Potatoes wrapped in Bacon, Sausage and Cheddar Bites, Pepperoni Balls, Birthday Cake, Cupcakes, M&M Cookie Bars, Raspberry Sherbet Punch and Lime Sherbet Punch
If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
I would love to take a nap, I physically and mentally need it. Got about 4 hours of sleep between issues with my daughter and Lola's seizures.
New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
None this week but I will be making a few things for my daughter's birthday.
In the garden::::
All my herbs have come in and they're doing so well, I'm very excited with the progress.
Favorite photo from the camera::::
~ Still praying for my brother to find a job.
~ My daughter, we really need prayers, things are so difficult at the moment and I find myself questioning everything, what kind of mother I am, where I went wrong, how I failed. It's exhausting.
~ Myself, I need prayers, lots of them. I am not dealing with any of this very well, to say I'm struggling would be an understatement.
~ My husband, as we try to get through this we find our marriage strained and we're both at a loss.
Bible Verse, Devotional that is resonating with me at the moment::::
PLEASE, don't add links to this list that are not part of the Happy Homemaker Monday. I've asked numerous times, and I'm frankly quite tired of having to remove links to other posts that shouldn't be in this list. Please be respectful of my request!
