The Simple Woman's Daybook for February 16 (a day late)

FOR TODAY February 16, 2009

Outside my window... A clear, sunny crisp, cool day

I am thinking...I have to get up and get ready to go out, I have to clean the house, I have to make eye doctor appointments for the girls, I have to do this weeks lesson plans for school.

I am thankful for...My husband who does not need/expect an utlra-clean, spotless house:)

From the learning rooms... We are doing Egypt in the time of Joseph for history, various life-science topics for Science, Math and English and Reading from Christian Light books, reading Judges for Bible, and I'm hoping to intrduce some music this week beginning with recognizing the basic keys on the keyboard. I had no home-work for college this week, thank God.

From the kitchen...all is quiet. I'm making fish tonight. Not much preparation required. The fridgerator is not as cranky as it was, because i started cleaning it out and am almost done washing all the shelves.

I am wearing... My new Eoyore p.j.s that hubby got me for valentines day.

I am creating...Nothing in particular. I have some school projects in my head though. We will see if they stay there or if I do anything with them.:)

I am going...To the doctor today. I will probably be gone all day.

I am reading...Red, by Ted Dekker (still)

I am hoping...That I will not be in the doctor waiting room for more than two hours, but sometimes i wait up to four. He is very, very busy, I have never seen anything like it.

I am hearing...Matt is playing hockey on the wii so i am hearing that. That's it other than my dog snoring next to me on the couch and my computer keys.

Around the house...Total mess. I can never seem to keep up with it for more than a couple days.

One of my favorite things... My new t.v. It is a big screen and has a great picture. I love it mostly because it was one of the only things my hubby has wanted for years. He works so hard and hardly ever sees the rewards. I am happy that he finally has gotten something totally unnecessary that he has wanted.

A few plans for the rest of the week: All the kids go back to school tomorrow. They have been off for a couple days. Tomorrow, everything goes back to normal. Hopefully Rachel and I will get back on our excercise schedule.

Here is picture thought I am sharing... Because i am going to Florida soon, i have been thinking about my family and spending time with them. This picture is from last summer during my sister's birthday party.
Actually, i created this post yesturday, but did not post it. So now it is Tuesday. The doctor visit only took an hour, the house is semi-clean, the weeks lesson plans are done and i actually started doing our first lap-book on ecosystems for school today. It's been a good two days except poor rachel had to get FOUR shots today to catch up on her immunizations. Poor baby, i felt so bad cause she was so distressed. Well, thank God that we have these immunizations to keep our children from getting life-threatening diseases.
Today i am thankful for:
1. Good, easy to talk to doctors
2. Immunizations
3. Good Will (we went shopping today, they were having a sale $2 all clothing!!

To blog about your day, here is the link to the simple woman's day book


  1. Aww! Poor Rachie! I can't imagine having to get "four" shots! Yikes! What a trooper you are Rachel! Well, it sounds like you all had a good day. I love the discriptions of your day and what you are facing. I also am thinking of our family "all" being together. I am sad that Erin, Matt and Steve will not be joining you on this upcoming trip. We will miss them. I AM looking forward to seeing you and Rachel! I pray that soon, we all may be together.
    I love you all,
