Everything's Gonna Be Alright........Oh Yeah!

Okay, so I am a little too happy this morning. No apparent reason. Nothing has changed with Monkey. I did get a good night's sleep, from 11pm to 5:30am. Hubby did not have to go in to work until 6:30. I like those kind of mornings! Yesterday I had a helper while I went to CVS and Wal-Mart, along with some other errands. It was so nice to get out and have help.

If I go to Wal-Mart by myself I have to drag the limomobile out. While I push the double stroller, I have to pull the cart behind me. Then when I get to the register I have to show my sales papers for each item and divvy out my coupons. So, to make a long story short, it is total madness without a helper.

The boys are up and we need to go to the Pigy wigy this morning, as well as the post office. I have ribs and a pork loin in the crock pot for supper. So I need to make potato salad to go with that as well as another side.

I also have the usual things to do, as well as change the linens and ironing. I need to price yard sale stuff as it is coming up quickly (May 2nd & 3rd). I may wait on that until Saturday as I have my high school helper coming that day. hubby is going to work if possible Saturday to make up for the day he missed Tuesday (when we took Monkey to the doc). The outside storage building seriously needs cleaned up and out.The last time it was done was the Spring before I found I out I was expecting (March 2005). It is a mess, with stuff everywhere and in no particular order.

The grass needs to be cut and we need to weed and spray around the outside of the house. I also need to do my monthly indoor spraying. We also need to put rat bait under the house and lime around the house. I've got to get online and find something (to spray in the yard that is non-toxic to the boys) for ticks and fleas and we have had both already brought into the house this Spring. I also have plants to get out and have no idea what they are. They are from the funeral of my mother-in-law. Our rose bush has also taken the blight, so pruning and spraying is in order for her as well.

Sounds like a busy weekend. We also are having my parents over for steaks Saturday night. We have some in the freezer and they need to be used quickly. I almost forgot we also have angel Food to pick up Saturday, but my friend Connie is taking care of that.

The weather is beautiful and hot here. It has been for several days now. Highs in the 80's and lows in the upper 50's.

Well, there is lots to get done. I hope you all have a Terrific Thursday! Blessings!!!
What's on your agenda today?

Is it already (almost)the weekend? Sounds like you're going to be really busy. And I can't imagine having a garage sale so early in the year...I would love to have one right now.

If I could go back and change anything from when my kids were little, I think I would try harder to have one of those mothers-helpers like you do, it sounds like it is such a help.

Enjoy that beautiful weather...we've had cold weather in the 30's, so I'm longing for some sunshine right now. Take care~

Whew! You are making me tired. I didn't sleep well, so I am groggy. I got the mess in the laundry that was all on top of the w/d and floor and shelves cleaned up. It was only two loads although it looked like it was much worse, then the boys brought me their sheets. My garage still looks the same- I am overwhelmed to look at it. I have most of it organized in boxes and priced and am doing the rest today.

Do y'all eat the cows that are on your property? You are talking about a bunch of expensive cuts of meat! I am jealous. All we ever have is chicken and ground beef.

Yes, it is! Hoping for warmer weather for you! blessings!!

Good for you southerner. Hope you get it all done soon.

We used to have cows slaughtered but not so much anymore. When I am talking steaks and we bought them usually they are from the Angel Food ministries program. It is awesome.
