Busy Monday, February 23

Monday I meant to write this but I'm going in and out of feeling icky sicky. I went into work yesterday because last week I was out sick half a day and so they told me to come in and work the extra hours this week instead of using my sick leave because they needed me to work on some paperwork. After I got done with that and lunch I was pretty much done for the day as I was feeling pretty ill. (Truthfully feeling pretty ill this Tuesday too.) 


  • Monday - Country Chicken Bake
  • Tuesday - Hamburger Helper w/green beans
  • Wednesday - Lasagna
  • Thursday - Chicken, Rice, Veggies
  • Friday - Pizza
  • Saturday - Baked salmon & shrimp scampi (Chicken... more chicken for Peter), pasta, cauliflower
  • Sunday - Meatloaf, Mashed potatoes, corn (every week I say I'm going to make this)

This Week's 'To-Do' List

Monday like I said I worked which I never did get on my schedule. The kids were on a 1hr delay but at least they were finally back in school. 

Today (Tuesday) - I have a dentist appointment I had forgotten about also the PTO thing is tonight where the 5th graders (which my littlest baby is) are playing their recorders so we have to be at that.

Rest of the week is pretty standard other than Peter will be going to Breakfast with Katherine Friday.

Saturday my friend who needs hours for her massage class is coming in town and I'm going to be a guinea pig. 

Last Week

The kids were out all last week due to the cold temps making sure that the roads weren't clear because nothing could melt off. From what I can tell the kids pretty much just stayed inside and played on their computers. 
It was pretty quiet last week due to school being out it meant most other places were closed too and things like 4-H were canceled. 
Other thing to happen last week is in realization I'm about to get on a bus with a ton of 5th graders, going to a city I don't know, with people I don't know, with large crowds I know my anxiety is going to be very bad so last Tuesday I started on the path of trying to quit smoking. I actually failed Tuesday because by 1am Wednesday I needed sleep but I tried again Wednesday and am on day 7. The bad thing is though it's ruining my diet so I'm gaining weight I worked so hard to lose. Double edge sword. 
Saturday Peter and the girls were out for part of the evening so while I was working on laundry I went to their room to see if I could find a few more things to fill up a load. Well one discovery lead to another until I was digging under my teenagers bed and this is what I found! OMG!! Needless to say they've been grounded for a few days since it was her and her sister since they share a room. We've started doing nightly inspections and having to stand there and supervise to make sure the floor is picked up before they go to bed.
Needless to say I was not a happy momma. 
Well I better wrap this up and start getting ready for work. I really don't feel up to going in but I need to so I'll push myself and hopefully feel better later. Hope everyone has a great week!


  1. Very proud of you for quitting smoking. I bet your family is as well. I know you can do it! Hope you are feeling much better now that it is the weekend again.

    1. Thanks I appreciate it. I'm trying. Things are never as easy as they sound though. This weekend was a long one I need a month off of work I swear. Too bad it it doesn't work like that :)
