Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my's still dark.  It just seems wrong to be up and moving around when it still looks like the middle of the night!

I am thinking...that I really need to get going on finding a First Communion dress for Amelia.  May 12 is creeping up on us!

I am thankful mother in law.  She is fully recovered from her car accident and she is ready to put it all behind her.

From the learning rooms...right now, Dan and I are really working with Amelia on controlling her anger.  This is a challenge for her.  We are trying to teach our kids to have better self control. 

From the kitchen...pork chops for dinner tonight.  I had wanted to put them in the crock pot, but I can't really find a recipe that I like and that fits with the "no carb" lifestyle.  I'll probably just bake them.

I am wearing...pajamas with little lavender flowers.

I am creating...a plan to get started on a project that could quite possibly become a small family business....we'll see.

I am take the bird to the vet today for a follow up visit.  She has a clutched right foot and we aren't sure what's causing it.  Two weeks ago, the vet said she didn't think it was from an it could be a tumor or possibly a stroke.  She seems to be holding her own...eating and drinking.  Time will tell.

I am reading...I'm actually in the middle of several goal is to finish them before I start something new.  Right now, though, I'm reading a book about the Total Consecration.

I am hoping...that one of these days soon, I can get caught up on laundry.  

I am hearing...the hum of the dryer and the coffee pot.

Around the house...signs that three children live here!

One of my favorite things...those rare days when everyone in my house gets along and there is no yelling or fighting.

A few plans for the rest of the week...babysitting a friend's grandchildren on Holy Thursday, attending all of the special masses this weekend, and just simply enjoying this time in the Liturgical calendar.

A picture thought I'd like to share:

Does anyone every truly get caught up on laundry? (In a household with children, at least!)
