The Simple Woman's Daybook for the Week of 3/21/2011
A day or two late, but i needed some direction to write on the blog today sooo....
FOR TODAY March 23, 2011
Outside my window...Dark, cold (again) just finished a thunder and lightning storm....still around 35-40 degrees...can't wait for warmth and sun
I am thinking...I have alot on my mind and i'm thinking about too much to actually separate one or two things to put right here.
I am thankful for...My children and the relationship i have with them and the love they have for me.
From the learning rooms...Started our new Bible program last week, but didn't do any this week. It's an apologetics course on world view, and looks very interesting, i just need extra time to work it into our schedule. History--we are up to the Civil War, Science--Just finished up DNA and are now doing studies on cells, English--Grammer, Reading comp, and a reading packet on The Red Badge of Courage, i need to add some writing.
I just found out today that Rai will probably have to take a test before she enters public high school, which we are both nervous about. Her because she hates tests, and me because if she doesn't do well than i will feel like i failed her.
From my learning rooms, i just took a test for Drug and Alcohol, on which i did well, I love my Human Services class and am learning alot, i just wish the classes did not take me away from teaching Rai her classes. Then there is spanish, which i absolutely abhor. I really don't think i'm going to pass that. Not exaggerating either :-(
From the kitchen...Keeping it clean, lol. Cooking about three times a week, maybe four. Steve cooks once a week, most times. I'm more happy about the fact that it has been staying clean because i resolved that it would, and it has (for four days now)
I am wearing...Jeans, tank top, long jacket shirt, slippers, bathrobe.
I am creating...An online calender that i can put all my responsibilities on to keep track of everything that needs to get done. Being computer illiterate, it will take some time to set it up correctly.
I am going...Nowhere tomorrow, my friend Debbie's Friday, hopefully church on Sunday. Other than that, i'm not sure. I am currently sharing my car with Matt, so he usually takes it on the weekends...he will hopefully be buying his own within a month.
I am reading...The Song of Susannah, by Stephen King, which is book six of the Dark Tower series. This is King's "version " of Tolkien's Fellowhip of the Ring trilogy. I just found out that soon there will be a movie based on these books, and i'm looking forward to seeing it.
I am hoping...Honestly, that i can drop Spanish before i have to make a fool of myself during the final, which is a listening test--there is no way i can pass that.
I am hearing...The t.v. in the background and the dishwasher running in the kitchen.
Around the house...Pretty clean. I have once again subscribed to the Fly Lady website, which is a free system of reminders, schedules, and encouragements on keeping a schedule to keep your house clean (the first step being to shine your sink and keep it that way, which is why the kitchen has been clean for a couple of days).
One of my favorite things...a clean house :-)
A few plans for the rest of the week: Thursdays are usually my day to do whatever i want (after Rai is done with school of course) so i usually just read, or watch a movie or two, or play on the computer or go shopping. It's like my saturday. Friday i usually deep clean the house, but since i've been working to keep it clean, it won't take that long. I need to dust and vacuum and work on my bedroom. That is, after i come back from my friend Debbie's house. Saturday and Sunday i will probablly work on school work, mine and Rai's.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing... because i am thankful for my kids and can't wait for summer, this is one of my kids (and my nieces) taken during one of our summer vacations in Florida:
Here is where you should go if you want to blog about your week:
