The Simple Woman's Daybook for November 16

 Well, i haven't posted anything in quite a while, and since my sister doesn't want to see Bon Jovi anymore ;), I figured i would do my Monday Simple Woman's day book post. For those of you who have been waiting with baited breath for some new posts from me, I've just been uber busy and distracted, but i'll get back to it soon. Have a good week

November 16th, 2009

Outside my window...Pitch black, as it is almost midnight, but during the day it has been warm and sunny for a couple of days, which is great cause it rained forever. I do like it to be a bit cooler, though

I am thinking...I really need to go to sleep, i have a lot to do tomorrow.

I am thankful for...The Holiday season, it's my favorite time of year

From the learning rooms...Oh, boy, i could be doing so much better. Rachel is doing well in math and grammar, but is struggling in science and writing. After this semester, i plan on doing better in this area of my life, since her education is in my hands right now, and I know that i'm not doing as much as i should be. For my learning, Tape 2 has been turned it for my interviewing and counseling class. Again, i think i sounded dumb and fake and i hated every minute of it, but it is necessary and i am learning a lot, i just have performance anxiety and i need to get over it :-)

From the kitchen...I think Steve is making pot roast tomorrow. Tonight we had cereal, since Steve was working, Steve cooked dinner last night, and before that, i made a roast beef for the first time in years, and overcooked it (now you know why steve does the cooking when he has a day off--not one of my finer homemaking skills)

I am wearing...Blue jeans, t-shirt, slippers and bathrobe

I am creating...An agenda for Wednesday's TUA meeting, A study guide for Chapter 11 in Rachel's science book, A 5 page paper for my ethics class, and a Treatment Plan for my Counseling class.

I am going...To school tomorrow, a meeting for TUA and school wednesday, an all clubs meeting thursday, maybe bible study on Thursday night if i got the date right, if not it will be next thursday and i'll go to ANOTHER meeting for PTK instead this thursday, and hopefully, i'll get to go to church on Sunday (with Erin, since she is off)

I am reading...Motivational Interviewing (for school), and Night by Elie Weisel

I am hoping...To get my paper and homework done on time, that Rachel will do well on her Science test this week, that Matt will make the basketball team this week, that Steve's bonus will come in before it's too late to use it for Christmas shopping, in which case it will be a very lean christmas, that my doctors appointment coming up on Dec. 7th will be a good report, That Erin's school will be able to fix the car's door handle, which no longer opens from the outside, that the dog will just wake up one morning and STOP scratching himself. That's about it for now, lol

I am hearing...The t.v. on the history channel, recording a show about WWII for NEXT year's history lesson (that's me, always thinking ahead, he-he)

Around the house...Still looking clean from this weekends cleaning spree, yay!

One of my favorite things...Sitting here at night, while all of the kids are asleep as i get some quiet time to myself

A few plans for the rest of the week: Do everything with a smile on my face and hope in my heart, make some memories with the kids, do better with home school, stay positive and seek the silver lining :-]

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Sorry, i just spend almost 20 minutes trying to upload a picture and it's not working. So, if you need a picture, scroll down to my last post, cause i was only gonna repost a jovi picture, just to get on Kathy's nerves, lol.
