FOR TODAY, Monday, 1 June, 2009

Outside my windowlittle bits of sunlight coming through the leaves of the lush trees in my backyard, casting shadows on the worn-country-store-turned-storage building next door.

I am thinkingWOOHOO!  I have the day off from work today!

I am thankful for(see what I was thinking)

From the learning rooms...is this like a homeschooling question?  I’ve been thinking about doing more cooking with the kids this summer.  And I thought about doing it at my Mamaw-in-law’s house.  She is 86 and doesn’t do much anymore, but she L-O-V-E-S her great-grandchildren, and I think would love to share stories about her childhood with them.

From the kitchen…  ooooh, let’s not go there.  I want something filling and simple, that my kids won’t turn up their noses at.

I am wearing...black jeans with a belt, cause they’re starting to slip over the hips (yippee!), a nautical themed collared tee-shirt and my hubby’s sandals.

I am creatingactive treatment plans for the mentally-retarded, developmentally disabled adult residents where I work.

I am goingto start using my pill-splitter today.  I’m supposed to take half a Cyclomel (thyroid med) per day, and cutting it with DH’s hunting knife (not that he hunts) “just ain’t cuttin’ it”…so to speak.

I am readingDonna Partow’s “Becoming the Woman God Wants Me to Be”
I am hopingto move in the next month or so.

I am hearingbirds chirping outside my window.

Around the houseDH snoring in the bedroom, DD huddled under the covers because she’s terrified of this moth that’s flitting around the kitchen, and the boys sprawled out asleep on the couch.

One of my favorite thingsthe relative lack of depression I’ve experienced for the last three days!  What a relief!

A few plans for the rest of the week:

  • Monday-take a walk with DS1,
  • Tuesday-take a walk with DS2,
  • Wednesday-take a walk with DD,
  • Thursday-clean the coffee pot,
  • Friday-pre-pack what I can for our MOVE!,
  • Saturday-take it easy because it’s my 5th day of work in a row (very physically demanding)

Here is picture thought I am sharing(this is the building mentioned above in what’s outside my window, although the shot is from a couple of months back)Picture 028
