The Simple Woman's Daybook for December 14 (yes it's a new one)

I know it's been almost a whole month, but since it is monday, here is my new Daybook post. Hopefully, with the Christmas break, i will have more time to post more stuff during the rest of this month and next also.

December 14, 2009

Outside my window...A Cold Clear Night

I am thinking...How much more shopping i need to do for Christmas and I'm not yet done decorating the house, with only 10 days left until Christmas, i'm wondering if I should just decorate less this year. Our tree is beautiful, though.

I am thankful for...My husband and how great we have been getting along lately. This is how it is supposed to be :-)

From the learning rooms...Rachel is finally doing grade-level math! It's not easy for her, but she is trying hard and i'm proud of her. She is on Winter break for a month from her science class, so i'm thinking about starting history. Now, i just have to figure out how to go through over 1000 years of history in 6 months (she needs to do American History next year, so she needs to go from year 4 a.d. to about 1400 before then) On the college front, both my classes are done. I got an A in Ethics, but i'm not yet sure what I got in Counseling because the grades are not yet up. Hope i got an A, but it was a very difficult class. I registered for 3 classes for next semester (Pre-Civil War American History, Social Policy and Programming{blech}, and Group Therapy{as in, how to lead group therapy}) and i'm looking foward to two of them. Hopefully 3 classes will not be too overwhelming with all the other things i have to do, but i guess we'll see.

From the kitchen...I made spagetti tonight because i forgot to defrost any meat, which is typical for me. I stayed up until after 2:30 last night (well, this morning) making fudge for Steve's co-workers and supervisors, and they were all thrilled. I made 6 batches of 3 different kinds. I think they all came out great!

I am wearing...Grey sweatpants, black long sleeve turtle neck, socks and slippers.

I am creating... A history lesson plan for the next 5 months, and more fudge for Steve's crew for Thursday.

I am going...To bed soon ;) Shopping tomorrow to try to finish Christmas lists, An eight o'clock meeting tomorrow at Matt's school with the PRINCIPLE about some "sour grapes" between my sweet little boy ;-)
and his yucky science teacher.

I am reading...I don't know the title, but it is a book about the holocaust. I should be reading my Bible study book about prayer, but i am soooo behind, i don't even know where to begin. I guess over break i'll need to read all the parts i am missing and then try to jump back into it and get my behind to Bible Study

I am hoping...That the meeting tomorrow will go well and that Steven and I will act appropriatly and God honoring.

I am hearing...The T.V. is on The Sing Off, the kids are playing with the dog, Steven and Erin and Jess are putting the bunk beds together. Oh, did i forget to mention that we have a new addition to our family? Jess is Erin's best friend and she will be staying with us for a while. She is a sweet young lady and she already feels like she is part of the family.

Around the house...As above, t.v. is on, hubby is putting furniture together, the dog is sitting next to me on the couch, Matt is sitting here next to me and the dog, actually watching The Sing Off, Rachel is roaming around the house helping Daddy and watching t.v. with Mommy and playing with the dog with Matt. The tree is up and beautiful, the house is a bit of a mess-- which is a bit embarrasing, because we had an unexpected visitor today and the house was not as presentable as it should have been. We don't get many visitors, so i don't keep the house as clean as i used to when we had family living here, but i would like to be more diligent in this area.

One of my favorite things...I love the Christmas Season AND the Reason for the season

A few plans for the rest of the week: As usual, cleaning, laundry, schooling, cooking, mommying, smiling, laughing.........

Here is picture for thought I am sharing... Here are my 3 teenagers, Erin, Matt and Jess--from two summers ago, but it's the most recent one I have with all three of them.

Have a great week, and hopefullly i will post again soon.
