I know it's late but I am just getting to this post since I have had a pretty busy day. Housework has taken over my entire day and now I have clean and nice smelling home. Anyways, let's get to the reason for this post-- it's Happy Homemaker Monday!
The mornings have cold, but the afternoons have been warm and sunny.
I'm sitting here typing this post and watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix.
That I need to find a way to promote the planner inserts that I have been working on for my shop. I have no idea how I am going to do this. I hope to have them listed by the end of the week.
Looking forward to:
My birthday is in a couple of weeks, the Super Bowl (I need to figure out the menu), and Valentine's day. February is always a good month in our house. I love planning for parties and I love that the Super Bowl is the day before my birthday.
On my reading pile:
Nothing at the moment.
Things that make me happy:
Spending time with my husband and two little girls. Reading a good book. Making the perfect cheesecake.
On the menu for the week:
Monday- pot roast, potatoes, peas (slow cooker) Tuesday- Beans (lunch) Burritos (Dinner) Wednesday- Leftovers from M and T Thursday- Skillet Lasagna, salad, garlic bread Friday- Ham and cheese sliders, fries, salad Saturday- BBQ chicken sandwiches, potato salad Sunday- Beans (lunch) Burritos/Frito Pies (Dinner)
On my To Do list:
Planning my week in my planner
General tidy up (entire house)
Clean out the car
What I am creating:
Stickers for my daughter's cape for the 100th day of school.
It's been a few days and I thought I would take a few minutes and pop to say hello and just a simple little check in post. The days have passes so fast that I just feel that I will never to be to catch up. I guess I should just take it one day at a time, right? Here are some random jumbled thoughts that have been rolling around in my head the last few days.
-- My heart goes out to Celine Dion who just last her husband and her brother within days of each other. I cannot even begin to imagine the pain and heartache she and her sons are going through right now.
-- I need to menu plan for the next couple of weeks and I have no idea where to start.
-- My house needs some serious TLC. It's a mess and I just don't feel like cleaning it right now. I need some motivation right now.
-- I'm excited for the premiere of "Fuller House" next month. Now if only Netflix would stream "Full House"..... one can dream right?
-- I have been binge watching TV shows for the last few weeks.... so far I have watched "How I Met Your Mother", "Gilmore Girls", "Friends", and now I am watching "Sliders". As for movies I have watched "Meet the Parents", "Meet the Fockers", and "Rockstar" (seriously the best 80s soundtrack ever).
-- I am behind on laundry and I don't even care right now.
-- My hands are so dry that they hurt.
-- I need some new books to read. Any suggestions?
Anyway, I have some things that I need to take care of. I should be back to blogging more regularly tomorrow. I hope everyone is doing well. Until next time!!
I hope everyone has had a great day! We have been relaxing, playing with play doh, running races in the house since it's too cold to play outside and just generally enjoying spending time together. I thought I would share a currently post with all of you. Here we go!!
Reading... I am reading A Haunted Love Story by Nark Spencer. So far I'm loving it.
Watching... Netflix. Right now I'm watching Young and Hungry. I love this series!
focus on one word this year.. Fcous... Why? Because I need to be more focused this year.
Cooking... Nothing at the
moment. I'm thinking about putting something in the crockpot for tomorrow.
Eating... Nothing.. I am so not hungry right now..
Drinking...Water, water, and more water.
Calling.. No one at the moment. No need to call anyone at this time.
Texting.. No one. I was texting my mom earlier but no one right now.
Pinning...Food, books, baby topics, blog post ideas.
Tweeting... Nothing. Yea, another thing.. I haven't been on Twitter in a minute either. Whoops.
Going... No where. But I will be going to bed soon.
Loving... My life. New Year. New Me. My family.
Hating... that is such a strong word. I don't hate anyone or anything.
Discovering.. Myself this year. Self-Control ya'll.
Thinking.. How blessed I am. I have a great life, great husband, great family and friends.
Feeling.. Sleepy.. Tired.. Exhausted.
Hoping (for)... a
good week this week. We have a huge opportunity coming up soon and we hope it works out for us.
Listening (to)... the TV and the Husband talking.
Celebrating... Nothing at the moment.
Smelling... the caramel that I put in my hot chocolate.
Thanking... The Lord for a great life.
Considering... ummm.. I have no idea right now..
plan more. I do have a planner that I have been neglecting. I hope to plan the next couple of weeks and making my to do list for the next few days. I am also going to menu plan for the next few weeks as well.
Finishing.. my home management binder. I should be finished with this in the next couple of weeks.
I cannot believe that it's January already! Where did the last year go?! I'll be honest I looked back at the goals that I had posted during 2015 and realized that I accomplished very few of them. In my defense last year was crazy and busy. I was pregnant for most of 2015, I had some complications beginning in June that resulted in my OB putting me on modified bed rest, then in July my husband broke his elbow and had to have surgery two weeks before my scheduled c-section. I have been in survival mode for a very long time and I'm ready to brush off the dust and get to setting goals for my life and businesses, and genuinely working towards those goals.
There are improvements that need to be done, so here are the goals that I am setting for this year.
Speak Paul's "love language" and make an effort to connect with him daily.
Get dressed everyday and take care of ME. I cannot take of care of everyone else if I am not taking care of me.
Weekly trips to the library for the girls and read more books together.
One on one time with the girls daily.
Routine. Establish a morning and evening routine and a daily routine for regular maintenance things for my business plus a daily routine for the girls.
