Is It Here Already?

I cannot believe that I go back to work this week! It has really slipped up on me. I will not tell you how unprepared I am. Actually I am prepared,my home is not. Laundry (washing, drying, folding, putting away and ironing) is behind, I still have a few groceries on the counter that need put away from the last grocery trip. My house needs to be tidied and cleaned, the toilets needs swished, the floors need swept and mopped and the blinds need cleaned.

I need to get our spraying (for insects)done inside and we seen an ant here and there, so we need to get some cinnamon put out. Ground cinnamon deters ants. We put it in our window seals.

Most of it will probably stay that way for awhile, as I will be going with the flow. MY kids come first and I do what I can during their one nap a day, but it is HARD!!!! I refuse to get stressed over it, I am doing my best.

Today I am going to try and get a few things done, call speech therapist, call A.K., email C.B., make appt. for Monkey w/ Dr. B. and find someone to print a sign for the newest market. I also need to get some things ready to mail, as well as cut and organize coupons.

Tomorrow, the mother's helper and I are taking the boys to the zoo and going to CVS, Aldi and a couple of other places. I also need to pick up Father's Day gifts. CVS has an awesome deal on Huggies this week. Their jumbos are $7.99. I also got in on the Pampers deal last week. I think I got 10 packs of diapers and 5 packs of training pants. i am trying to get stocked up, not just on diapers. It is so hard to get to the store in the summer with the busy schedule.

Wednesday the boys have speech therapy. I also start back to work (at the roadside market) the same day. This week I will work Wednesday-Saturday 7am-5pm, except Thursday and I have to be home at 2:30pm to let my Mother's Helper go to class.

Sunday is church and then I will work 1pm-7pm. Also have got to find time to get things prepared for Father's Day meal and make the menu out. I do know we are having homemade peach ice cream.

For tonight's supper I am planning on a veggie supper. Green beans, corn, squash, potato salad, fresh tomatoes and fresh vidalia's, as well as cornbread salad and fried green tomatoes. We still have leftover apple pie from last night's supper.

I hope you all have a great day.

Wow, it sounds like you are going to be one busy gal! The veggie dinner sounds so tasty, I LOVE Fried Green Tomatoes, they are just delicious :)

Thanks for the great hint; I had never heard of using cinnamon to deter ants. I'm hoping it might deter those little black mites(?) as well. They've made their way into my flour and sugar cannisters..yuck!

This sounds like your super-busy time of year. Which definitely must be challenging with two little toddlers..;)

Have fun at the zoo tommorrow!
