Outside My Window...is a beautiful bright, sun shiny day! I don't mind that it's cold.
I am thinking...that I could really use a rest.
I am thankful for...people who really understand me, especially Damon. And a situation with a dcdad that is working out just fine. I'm glad he sees things my way. Or so it seems. From the kitchen...I made cinnamon coffee cake for the the book fair breakfast tomorrow at Brett's school. K's mom is dropping it off at school for me this afternoon when she takes in her orange juice. Also in the kitchen- clean dishes in the dishwasher & dirty lunch plates. I am wearing...a new Ralph Lauren denim skirt I found at Goodwill on Saturday.
I am hoping...Brett doesn't get whatever fever-runny nose-cough virus is currently going around.
I am praying for...one small part is a right spirit in all things.
Around the house... are lots of things to be done but none of it's terribly urgent. Things are good.
I am creating....many things in my head! I'm working on my 5 homemade things for friends. I am going...to a massage tonight! It was a spur of the moment call to schedule one & I got in with my regular therapist. I have one next week too, but oh well, the last few days have been enough stress for a month! I feel like I need a real break. I am reading...other people's blogs mostly. I am hearing...kids happily playing. Soon it will be nap time. Then I will probably hear a round of non-stop coughing. Around the house...are many little piles of things that need to be taken care of. I'm a piler-upper. One of my favorite things....no plans on a week night! A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Tues: Brett's book fair starts. I better go before there's no selection. Wed: study nearby with 2 chapters since it was snowing & icy last week. Thurs: Early release for Brett. He will be home for lunch. Conference with Brett's teacher at 5:15 p.m. & family fun night at Brett's school. The biggest book fair in Rock Co. continues. Fri - Sun: No plans (this means I will be working on tax paperwork)
We are also following Amy's week #1 menu this week. I printed the shopping list & bought everything we needed on Saturday so we're all set. It was easy & we're looking forward to the meals!

We had a very nice dinner on Friday night for Valentine's Day. This was my "gift" to Damon. It was fun! Damon's Mom & Dad were able to come earlier than usual & had dinner with us! Everything turned out very nice (after I dropped the dressing bottle, broke it & had to make some more.) A lot of time was spent planning & making this over 2 days (desserts on Thurs, the rest on Fri) and I came down with a cold so I was pretty tired out but it all came together nicely, just the way I wanted. My house was even clean! Again, we had the strawberry pretzel salad , veggie pizza , Baked potstickers with Asian Dipping Sauce, salad & celebration punch with strawberry heart shaped ice cubes!

- "I voted for Obama too!" - 2 1/2 yr old day care girl
- "Oh no! K's head fell off!" - they meant K's PUPPET head fell off. I was concerned there for a minute.
- "No, you're the dead brother!" 5 yr old to the 3 yr old while playing house. I wonder exactly what he was supposed to do??
- "Once upon a time, I was walking through an imaginary jungle, and two mean lions..." - 3 yr old girl during lunch. She tells it almost every day.
There's more I'm sure but I can't think of any now. This week I began to feel that some of these kids talk entirely way too much! I love it though when they make me laugh right out loud. Like the time one of the girls said their mom does the chicken dance in the shower. But that's an old one.
