Simple Woman's Daybook
For today, Monday, December 1st (again, better late than never this week)
Outside my window...it is dark and somewhat warm. It was actually pretty nice today considering it is Dec 1st and we had snow/sleet/ice/rain yesterday.
I am thinking...I am tired. Got home at midnight last night and didn't fall asleep until almost 2 AM.
I am thankful for...my mom's friend not wanting to go to the UConn game last night so I got to go to an exciting game! Also that Tucker didn't end up with a full-blown cold.
From the kitchen...Finishing up the Thanksgiving leftovers for dinner; Tucker had mac and cheese. Tomorrow we'll have pork chops (and yes, applesauce, just like Peter Brady).
I am creating...still working on Christmas presents. I did some scrapbooking yesterday at my mom's; I'm halfway through August of 2007. I brought all my stuff home to work on; we'll see how far I get with that.
I am wearing...black pants with a brown shirt.
I am reading...actually read a lot this week. Finished Forever in Blue by Ann Brashares. Read The Life Before Her Eyes (can't think of the author right now) and The Woman Next Door by Barbara Delinsky. I've decided to re-read the Little House books so I've started Little House in the Big Woods and also picked up the next Anne of Green Gables book today. With Tucker, we read Thanksgiving fiction. He really enjoyed There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Pie.
I am hoping...I get a job soon.
I am hearing...Cash Cab on TV, Tucker playing, the dishwasher running, and the fishtanks gurgling.
Around the house...took the Thanksgiving stuff down and slowly bringing out the Christmas stuff...laundry to be folded...the Wii has returned...actually the house is pretty clean.
One of my favorite things...what I call Tucker's "Janice-laugh" when he tells a joke.
A few plans for the rest of the week...a home visit Thurs...working at the Holiday Fair at Tucker's school Tues and Wed...senior center Thurs morning...packing up the Holiday Fair Fri...cleaning the family room to get ready for the tree...getting the Christmas Tree on Sun.
A picture thought...
Tucker helped me clean on Saturday. He actually likes to scrub the shower and especially loves to scrub the toilet!!!
