and it's only 1:07p.m.! Here's what I have done today..........
3:30 am hubby off to work, back to bed
6am up ready for day, checked email, prayed, did devotion
6:45am boys up, breakfast, brushed teeth, dressed
Then it went into a whirlwind...............
Post office, grocery store, unloaded and reloaded dw, 4 loads laundry, 3 meals of spaghetti, 7 layer salad for 3 families, filled in two cards, made a german chocolate cake, iced it, emptied all trash cans, cleaned both bathrooms, fed lunch and vacuumed around dining room twice (once at b'fast and once at lunch), cleaned off coffee table in retreat, started pink eye pea soup, made calls, marinated chicken for tonight's supper and finally sitting down to post. WHEW!!!!!!
I bought 12 # of cheap ($1#) chicken breasts this morning, as well as some cheap pre cut salad (also, $1 #). My beloved Vidallia onions are back in season. They are so sweet you could eat them out of hand and I do, like an apple!
My Aunt that has cancer (and my uncle) will get the german chocolate cake, a dish of spaghetti and a dish of the 7 layer salad for supper. My parents will get a dish of spaghetti and a dish of the salad as well for tonight's supper. We will have the same and tomorrow night will be grilled chicken and I will cook up the excess chick chick (as the boys call it) for later.
Speaking of the boys. We are using many , many LESS (that could also be said as fewer!) pull-ups. Mason is almost fully potty trained except at night. He has only had 2 accidents in over 2 weeks. John is close behind, but still poops in his pants.........BUT that is till progress! Yay boys!!!
Hubby has gotten to work 2 out of 3 days this week! Yay for that!
We are having a birthday party for my father-in-law Saturday night here. I've got to start getting things in order for that.
We are (me mainly) in the process of still cutting back the wood line along our drive. It is over 700 feet long! I think I have gotten maybe 45 feet done. It is hard work and time consuming when your kiddos are under foot. I am a very outdoorsy kind of girl and I can handle it. The last time it was done I did it while expecting the boys. Tough as nails........just don't tell (big)John! LOL!
I gave him a haircut last week and had been just trimming the boys along but it was finally time or the barber to intervene and he did a really good job!
Te roof is finished but insurance has not paid us the full amount as of yet, maybe tomorrow or Friday for sure! The roofer is a wonderful family friend and told us to just call when we had the check...........wow!!! Praise the Lord! How many would have his crew here the next day, on a Saturday (and finished on Monday) to make sure that the rain didn't leave water damage and then wait (knowingly) on his pay........$4800.00 to be exact! PTL!
The boys are down for a nap, when they get up we have food deliveries to make. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods!
The weather is gorgeous here and we hope to play outside for awhile today as well!
Have a blessed day and Praise the Lord for our Earth! Happy Earth Day too!
