FOR TODAY - Tuesday May 25, 2010
Outside my window... it's dark. It's almost tomorrow. It's been a busy evening and I'm just getting some me time and want to blog.
I am thinking... about getting something to eat. I'm not going to. It's too close to bedtime.
I am thankful for... time with my mom tonight. We went to Lowe's to buy stuff for the remodel. I thought we were done, but when we got home, it seems the lights for the bathroom won't work. I'm frustrated.
From the learning rooms... a reading marathon. Grom and I have been reading the books off the shelves that we can't say are great books. We read, evaluate and put the losers in a bag for Goodwill.
From the kitchen... meatballs from Ikea, mashed potatoes and green beans. FABULOUS!
I am wearing... my pajamas.
I am creating... decorating plans. I'm still making lots of decisions. We had to pick out carpet AGAIN today. It didn't get ordered when I thought it did. It is supposed to be installed early next week, so we had to go back and find something that "in stock". Fortunately we found something I like. The shower tiles went in today and they look fab.
I am going... to keep looking for light fixtures for our bathroom. I won't give up (even though I want to).
I am reading... Still working on Crazy Love by Francis Chan and The Shack by what's his name. They are on that list of books to read on my 101 list. And I just got Linchpin by Seth Godin from the library. Linchpin is a brand new book, so I've got to get that one read in the next 2 weeks. My answer hasn't changed from last week.
I am hoping... Grom loses his second tooth soon. It's really loose, but he insists he's not going to let me yank this one.
I am hearing... Surferman rolling and groaning. I think he has whatever Grom had yesterday. Grom couldn't keep anything down all day. Pray Surferman gets past it soon and that I escape it.
Around the house... the tile in the bathroom is done, the cabinets in the kitchen are in and the end is in sight.
One of my favorite things... I feel like I'm running out of favorite things or that all my favorite things involve food. Thinking... here's one... cleaning out my ears after a shower with a Q-tip. Tossing the dirty Q-tip is so satisfying.
Vocabulary word of the week:
imbroglio (n.): a complicated, sometimes emotionally charged, situation involving intrigue and misunderstanding
synonyms: predicament, snarl, tangle, mess, dispute
used in a sentence: The company may not survive another legal imbroglio.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Kids Club Year End Celebration!, and a trip to San Francisco with friends.
How you can be praying for me and mine... health for Surferman, obedience for Grom, that I'd get my motivation back to lose more weight - consistency for all of us.
Have a great week. Check out other daybooks at The Simple Woman's Daybook.
