2/24/06—Good morning! I’ve been up for over 2 1/2 hours and haven’t gotten much done 😦 Actually, that’s not true, I did get dh off to work with his breakfast and lunch, and got some quality snuggling time with my 2 youngest dd’s and our doggie and one of our cats. I did that while watching Walton’s …… it was good to spend that time with the girls (and Miss Rachel fell asleep in my arms….I LOVE that feeling 🙂 I love having a baby (even one that’s 5 1/2 :)) fall asleep in my arms 🙂
SO, now I need to get moving! We were going to be having company today…..our friends that are moving to Reno…..but the mom called at 7:30 and told me that she really needs me tomorrow while they clean up the house, and that she doesn’t see a way clear to get them here today. That was fine…. except that another mom and her kids were planning on coming over to say goodbye…..hopefully they will be able to do that tomorrow 🙂 Oh how my heart is aching over this friend moving….she was my first friend here in Visalia. I’m SO going to miss her! Thankfully we have family in Reno, so we have another reason to go and visit now
Oh! I’m not sure if I’ve told you all or not…..we are getting new furniture tonight. Well, it’s new to us…..some friends bought another friends’ furniture and are giving us their current furniture. I can’t wait to get it! I’m going to list one of our chairs on freecycle today, and the couch will be moved to our bedroom (oh, how I hope that it really does fit!). I am really excited. We are getting a new couch as well as 2 recliners. I will take pictures before and after today and put them on my blog for you all to see. SO today I need to get my room ready to move the couch in, and I need to work on decluttering the drawers that I had planned on doing yesterday.
I also have:
order library books
find a bible study lesson for R to start on…..she is VERY interested in doing Beth Moore, so I may check into that for her.
look at curriculum catalogs to start finding next year’s curriculum
work on organizing recipes for 10 minutes
That’s about it for today, but it is a full day! Oh, we are also having company for dinner tonight 🙂 Really simple dinner, but it will be fun. They are helping us move furniture tonight and wanted to “hang out” so they’ll come for dinner, the dad’s will go pick up furniture, and I would imagine we will be playing a game of Mexican Train dominoes…..one of our favorite things to do 😉
Here’s what is happening in my kitchen today:
help R make some Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies
ww bagels and creamcheese/peanut butter/butter (their choice)
Lunch: homemade lunchables……sliced turkey/swiss cheese/crackers
hamburgers/cheeseburgers with all the fixings
chips (our friends are bringing, so I don’t know exactly what types)
dessert will be Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies
