I haven’t had much time (or material, for that matter) to blog these days and this week, I’ll be training four out of five evenings, so it’ll be a busy one again. I just decided to sit down and type what I would write if I kept an actual journal (you know, the kind on paper, with a pen).
David stayed home from church today because he’s sick (although, some people figured he was out turkey hunting). He’s got fever tonight. His throat doesn’t hurt, so I’m not really suspecting mono.
Tyler and I went to church and out to eat at our favorite Mexican place.
Time alone with my boy… makes me smile. Actually, all things Tyler makes me smile these days.
We stopped off at the Dollar store… he wanted to get a little candy to take to Courtney at work (she works at one of our local movie theaters). They are so cute.
I spent the afternoon paying bills and looking over our budget… and a few minutes checking in with Kale who only has a couple weeks left in this, his next-to-last semester of school. He’s a busy boy these days between school and work.
Yesterday, I went through my closet for a second purging… I’m getting ready for a yard sale, so I dipped in again… and got another trash bag full for the sale. I also cleaned out all my bathroom cabinets. I can’t believe how much stuff collects over time. I am a hair product junkie, so there were several full bottles of things I’ve bought and decided against for this mop of hair… more yard sale goodies.
The Fly Lady has been helping me stay much more organized, which results in an amazing calm (thanks, Nikki). I don’t have the whole system down yet, but my mornings include my quiet time, emptying out the dishwasher and loading any breakfast dishes, one load of laundry, making beds and doing a quick once over in the bathroom. I’ve also been trying to tackle an area of clutter each day. Little by little, I’m feeling more in control of my schedule and the things around me.
I can’t wait for tomorrow night’s episode of “24”… and it looks like my DVR failed to get “The Amazing Race” for me again this week… what’s the deal? BUT, there is a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie on that I am closing this post to tune in to.
Hope y’all had a great weekend.
