    Weather is ok this week. I hope it melts the snow.......

    DS2's school counselor has been a blessing with giving DS2 recommendations. Sometimes on very short notice.... Nothing has panned out yet but we have high hopes that something will....

    Dinner will be sausage & noodle w/sauce and bread today.

    Busy work days lately. After the Super Bowl it settled down but we are busy again. Maybe due to Valentine's or bad weather. Not sure.

    I must get over to JCP to pick up my online order. The mall is so trafficky and getting there can be an obstacle course. Maybe DH will take me.

    LifeofRiley - My condolences to you and your family on your loss.

    retired - Good to hear you are home and recuperating from your surgery.

    magsuk - Hopefully you are in less pain today.

    A new week and a fresh start. The weather will be quite warm for February with temp projected in the upper 60s today. The temperature was 74 degrees here yesterday. Crazy! The plants are confused, too. My tulips are already popping out of the ground.

    My plans for the day are the standard, stay-home and no-spend. Just the usual house things to get done, and I will straighten and declutter my closet. I have a couple loads of laundry to fold and put away too. Between the rain showers, I may get outside and pick up tree limbs and pine cones. There are a gazillion of them throughout the property and it’s a task that never ends. Plus I really need the exercise. Supper will be roasted turkey (from the freezer), brown rice, squash, green beans and Sister Schubert rolls.

    Have a magnificent Monday!

    Good Monday to All. Another warm day. Yeah, confused plants - and animals too. Rain forecast for just about every day this week.

    Slept 8 hours courtesy of night time cold medicine. Thankful for hot coffee to help with the medicine head. More than likely staying in today unless DH has errands to run. I need to do a load of laundry and use the dryer. Defrosting the rest of the package of chicken tenderloins and will cook the last acorn squash. Leftover potato soup too.

    Everyone have a wonderful day.

    Good morning, Catching up on posts. LifeofRiley, I am sorry for your loss.
    Retired, wishing you a speedy recovery from your surgery.
    .Magsuk, pain is a terrible thing and there are no words.
    Prayers sent for all of you.

    A not so busy weekend for us but still tired. Waiting for the kids to arrive. I will put two on the bus and have the 3 year old today.

    I have been busy with doctors and appointments. My ankle is not hurting but still swollen. The hole remains and I go to the doctor today to have it checked. I also have an x-ray on my hip that needs to be done (arthritis) this week. Putting off the vascular until after I get back from vacation. My doctor is not happy with that one. I had my physical for the year. Waiting to hear about my blood work. Just beginning a full year of every thing medical. A new doctor for me so I will get sent to specialists and be checked for just about everything possible.

    I am happy with the warmer temps here. Just a few patches of snow remain. I would like to think we are having an early spring but I know better. I just hope it holds out until we leave next week.

    That it for me today. Kids still haven't arrived but should be here any minute.
    Have a good day everyone.

    26 and a dusting of snow this morning. Supposed to be 32 today. Didn't go out yesterday, so no spending. Did have to vacuum since the dog is shedding. Filled the container in the vacuum twice with dog hair, and it's only a week since I vacuumed. Will probably vacuum again during the week because that much hair was giving me allergy issues. Money out for bills today. The semi-annual car insurance is due and the propane bill arrived. The mortgage is the only big bill left to pay this month. Short week for me. I am taking Friday off. This week starts the annual big events. My 23rd work anniversary is tomorrow, Valentine's Day on Wednesday, our wedding anniversary Saturday, my birthday Sunday and DH's birthday Monday. Pulled leftover ham to use for dinner tonight. Plenty of leftovers to use for lunches. All food should be from home today. I hope everyone has a great day. Jill

    Happy Monday all,

    Another Monday...once again, the weekend just flew by. Didn't get as much cleaning done as I'd hoped but did enough that I won't be embarrassed if someone stopped I couldn't figure out where all my bowls with lids were until I cleaned out the fridge yesterday. Now the dishwasher is full. DH will empty it when he gets up.

    Chilly day here. High of 43 today but 80 on Wednesday. Still no moisture.

    Should be a no spend day. Brought leftovers for lunch. Will actually make money, I have a quilt being picked up this evening.

    Take care of yourselves and have a great Monday y'all.

    sunny here but we are hiding inside. jillibean almost sounds like us except we just have mil bday, our anniversary and valentines day. ds friend coming over early so we can take him to the kids games stat holiday here family day but we are the only ones being changed to match rest of country next year because theirs is next week. lots of people have to work it and get next week off but then kids aren't off etc.

    not that all those with winter want to hear about spring here but in spring cleaning mode. warm enough to have doors open and been straightening decluttering a bit at a time. got dh to take down light covers to be washed.

    made blueberry pancakes added choc chips because dh and dd don't like blueberries but I dont like choc chips in pancakes so..frozen blueberries from last year that ds insisted we buy but didn't eat so got frozen. think I will cook the frozen cheap stuffed turkey breast I got last xmas for dinner.

    friend going over to mils today she seems to be getting a cold now since sil never seems to have the thought of staying home when sick instead spreading germs. just cus she is doomed being a k teacher doesn't mean you need to make sure everyone else gets it. she sent a long email about mils medical stuff. all business like. dh says she must of researched now much it costs to hire a service like nurse next door and that is why she flipped flopped on being jealous of our friend helping to she is awesome come more. seriously need to leave the country to get a few days away from his family. always the way. time to book that cruise.

    Standing up is now the biggest problem I have now. After I get on my feet, walking is slow but much less painful.
    Niece is here to help me cook the goulash I have been wanting to make for the last 2 days since I can't lift the pans.
    Other than that, no other big plans.

    As I stated late last night, I made it through my kids' birthday yesterday without any tears. Today was cold but it was bright and sunny. Part of my Amazon order was delivered today. I decided to invest in a new bathroom scale, and I ordered a kitchen scale at a discounted price too. the kitchen scale arrived today. ;-) I just completed y final written assignment that is due tonight. Finished it and submitted it. Going to start on my final week's reading after I grab a quick bite of something. Hope you all had a great Monday and a fantastic start yo your week...

    Hi All, had the Boss's wife in as co worker was sick Friday and she was scheduled to be off on the Saturday anyway. So Friday and Saturday at work was a blast did not seem like work at all. Drove up Island to my daughter's Saturday afternoon for a quick visit. They were flying to Hawaii today for a week's vacation. Went to Duncan to the big Walmart there afterwards and spent $100 but the freezer and fridge and cupboards are all stocked up. Lots of bargains to be had and I found them. LOL. Yesterday was a partially lazy day , did laundry and a load of dishes and then today I hooked up with my best friend and we went out for a couple of hours and had lunch out too. Came home and unloaded the dishwasher and reloaded it. Bed sheets are all washed and dried and the bed remade with different sheet set. Laundry is in piles on the sofa to be folded but it is sorted into piles = that is a major step in my opinion. ha ha. Leftover soup for dinner and will have a fruit cup and ice cream for dessert. Going to watch Antiques Roadshoiw for the rest of the evening. Sally.
