Almost School {Simple Woman’s Daybook}

Outside my Window …
It is breezy and partly cloudy. Part of the backyard is a mess while the husband builds the kids’ new swing set and fort. It is HUGE, but they couldn’t fit on the old one; plus it was falling a part. This one should be plenty big to grow with them, and we can read and camp out up there =)

I am thinking…
*whew* This day has been hectic. The week before school starts back for us is usually pretty “busy,” with me getting papers and things prepared.  I like to get all the closets cleaned out, clothes packed up for hand me downs, and others sent to consignment. So there has been THAT this week…

I am thankful…
that we are done traveling for a while! We can get back to focusing on school and time as a family. I can tell when things are too busy because our relationships suffer; the kids get crazier, my attitude isn’t what it should be, and everyone starts struggling with behavior. When we get quality time together, and I can actually spend time with them, we are all happier.

In the kitchen…
I am making bone broth in the crock pot, the dishwasher is full, and the kitchen is actually clean. I just couldn’t take it anymore! haha

I am wearing…
workout shorts and a tank … pretty much my uniform. I tried wearing jeans and a cute shirt yesterday, and quickly remembered why I don’t do that- tiny humans = stained clothes. *sigh*

I am creating…
nothing right now. I really need to get down stairs and do some sewing for the kids.

I am going…
to Costco today!

I am wondering…
if this weather is here to stay- waking up to the mid 50’s is so nice, and only highs in the 80’s!

I am reading…
nothing. Just too tired to read lately.

I am hoping…
to get the house cleaning finished today

I am looking forward to…
the weekend with my crew and hubby, the kids’ birthdays!

I am learning…
how to do my daughter’s vision therapy homework at home. It is hard; I just pray it works.

Around the house…
clothes. every where.

A favorite quote for today…
Don’t think I have one today.

One of my favorite things…
just hanging out with my family, walking our property, loving on the big ole dogs.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
help hubby on the swing set if he wants me to, tend the chicken coop, pull some weeds, finish the cleaning out of the house, plan out the kids’ birthday meals and cakes.

A peek into my day…
