Happy Homemaker Monday
( My 2nd to the youngest on his first day of pre-k)
Oh, oh, oh! Like my header says, when life gets busy, the first things to go are my house and home cooked meals. I was doing so well. My house was pretty clean, I was having fun baking and getting things in the freezer and then...I hit a wall. It started around labor day weekend. Since then I have just kind of...well...lost my mojo. The house is a WRECK. I am not lying. From where I am sitting I can see a stack of (clean!!) diapers waiting to get tossed in the basket, bottles needing to go to the sink, candy wrappers, shoes, blankets... I won't even mention the kitchen. It will not be easy to make a homemade dinner in there...considering there are no clean counters. Ugh. I am wondering...what do you do when it gets like this? Or do you never lose your home making mojo? I just can't seem to get with it!
The weather in my neck of the woods: windy and rainy. We are feeling the effects of a tropical storm. The winds were so strong last night, that our neighbors trampoline is in a tree!
One of my Simple Pleasures: going to bed early, and getting a good nights sleep
On my bedside table: My husband and I actually just switched sides of the bed. I know, sounds wierd right? Anyway, on his side of the bed are alarm clock, remote and *boring to ME magazines*
On my tv: my boys are playing Lego Indiana Jones
On the menu for tonight: mini meatloaves, applesauce, carrot sticks w/ dip and...I am not sure if anything else will be added!
On my to do list: write a check for Girl Scouts and turn in enrollment papers
write a check for book orders
clean my house
New recipe I tried last week: I actually tried this last night and we all loved it!
In the craft basket: nothing
Looking forward too: no school on Friday. It will be nice to have a break from the commute.
Homemaking tip of the week: Don't let your house get as bad as mine!!
Favorite blog post of the week: Hmmm I haven't read too much lately. Although two friends recently had babies and so it was fun seeing all the new baby pictures!
Favorite picture of the week: at the top!
Lesson learned from this week: I have to set priorities. I can't let other things get in the way of what is important to ME.
On my prayer list: same as always, friends & family
Scriptures & devotionals: Honestly, I have hardly read anything uplifting. Maybe that is why I have been struggling?
