What I'm thinking: That I have GOT to catch up on housework this week and get back into 31 Days to Clean. And thinking it's time to get organized about Summer since we haven't yet.
What I'm reading: I read Just Too Busy by my blog friend Joanne (see my review) and I'm still working on my 12 books in 12 months list. I'm a little behind on that schedule - currently reading Oliver Twist by Dickens. And I'm looking over a cookbook that I'll be reviewing on the blog.
What I'm listening to: The coffee maker finishing, whispering to me to get a cup before I finish this post - LOL. And wind chimes outside which means there's a nice little breeze on this hot day.
What we're learning: Kiddo is trying to finish 7th grade math this Summer so he can start 8th grade math in the Fall when we start school, so we're currently doing 2 math lessons a day.
What I'm watching: The overgrown jungle in our little back yard - we really need to do some trimming! But at the same time I like looking at all that green. We recently borrowed a movie from friends to watch: Gifted Hands - The Ben Carson Story. Amazing story - I highly recommend it!
What's cooking: Tonight's dinner will be taco salad. I'm naming it Montana Taco Salad ('cause I learned the recipe in MT) and I'll actually post it soon - you'll get a laugh from the simplicity of it. And I need to mix up some more Instant Oatmeal Mix.
What I'm buying: Hopefully not too much! Last week we spent some $ at Costco, Kohl's, and Lowe's so I'll try not to shop much this week.
What I'm thankful for: My family! And I'm thankful that son and I can fly out to visit my Dad later this Summer - plane tickets are just not cheap!
What I'm creating: As much as I would like to try out some crafts, I really need to focus on organizing my household. So I'd like to create some order around this place!
What I'm praying: That I would be a better wife and mom. That kiddo's arm will be all healed up when his cast comes off tomorrow! And for friends suffering with illnesses, financial problems, and more.
What I'm planning: To finally see the kiddo without his cast - yay! Hoping to go to the $1 movie with friends this week. Helping hubs with appetizers for his appetizer contest at work! And trying to figure out our 4th of July plans.
What we did this last weekend: Well. The weekend before I was helping host a ladies' tea. But this weekend was quite the opposite! I helped hubs who was blowing extra insulation into our attic. I was the one loading the bales of insulation (which had to be broken apart) into the hopper in the garage and trying to keep up the pace so the hopper didn't empty! SO dirty!!! And my back is still hurting today, though I'm sure it will be fine soon. Kiddo helped too by opening the bags up and sliding them over to me. We rewarded ourselves for our hard work (and MANY $$ saved!) by going to see Kung Fu Panda 2 and then out for a steak dinner - yay! :)
What I'm looking forward to: Kiddo getting his cast off! 4th of July! Getting organized! (See, if I keep saying it I figure it will seep into my subconscious and help me out.) :)
A picture to share:
