For today...Thursday, September 3, 2009
Outside my window...it's cool. Finally we're starting to see the imminence of fall.
I am thinking...about how incredibly mericful God continues to be to me.
From the Learning Room...we took of all of last week for vacation and are back in the swing of things. It's a good thing too. I just had a lady ask me what kind of English curriculum we were using for Suzannah and I totally blanked!!! It was so embarrassing!!!
I'm thankful for...vacation days and the energizing it brings.
From the kitchen...my sink and dishwasher are both overflowing b/c I'm out of dish washer detergent. Don't ask how that happened?
I am wearing...a brown jersey knit skirt and a light pink tee shirt.
I am reading...curriculum. I'm trying to get September's lesson plans all finished.
I am hoping...that Billy is feeling ok. I think he's getting my cold. I told him not to kiss me...
I am praying...for wisdom. Suzannah is having some trouble w/ her sugar and fear at night.
I just don't know what to do. We had overcome so much. Then a couple of weeks ago we sent her into the laundry room to get some skittles b/c she was low. It was about 2 in the morning and apparently Jack had woken up b/c he came wandering down the hall. It scared the day lights out of Suzannah. She started screaming bloody murder. Jack started screaming bloody murder. Billy and I had heart attacks! Ever since then she is majorly freaked at night. It's wearing me out and I just don't know the best way to deal w/ it.
I am creating...a crocheted blanket for Billy for Christmas.
I am hearing...Rescue Rangers.
Around the house...I'm almost caught up on laundry from the trip. I just have to fold kids clothes and finish getting the car cleaned out.
One of my favorite things...Charley Kate's smile. She is so joyful and just about turns inside out when she smiles! I love her so much and am so very thankful that she's a part of our family! She's on the brink of laughing and I can't wait! :)
A few plans for the rest of the week...skate day this afternoon (the last one b/c the skate plex is closing...boo), ELO meeting tonight (we start next week...yay!), Anniversary dinner Saturday night and I think Molly B will be spending the night, cook out at a friends Sunday and Billy has off on Monday!!! :):):):):):)
Here is a picture thought to share...
Look who potty trained himself!!!!!
He just started taking off his diaper and going to the potty so I started putting "big boys" on him and he's done great. He was in underwear for almost 2 weeks b/f we went on vacation. While we were there he went when he wanted to. Now that we're back it's been alright. He's had a couple of accidents...mostly when he's outside playing. But still, he's doing really well for as lazy as I've been about it. Funny, I was kind of impressed and when I bragged to my mom she put me in my place. Her response was, "Oh, that's kind of sad." HA! Kind of true. Poor kid. Charley Kate....maybe one of your siblings will help you.
