Day Book - Monday 2/6/17
Outside my window... it's just about 7 a.m. and it's foggy. The sun is in the process of rising, I suppose. It's 52F/11C but it's supposed to get up to 78F/25.5C today!
I am thinking... that I don't know how much I'll get accomplished today. Right now I'm tired.
I am thankful for... not having to drive my son to school in that fog this morning and for not having caught whatever bug he has... yet.
From the learning rooms... my daughter doesn't have to go to in-person classes today. She finds out on Friday if she's been accepted to UF. Her plan is to go spend the weekend at her dad's and if she was accepted, he will go to Gainesville on Monday with her to look for an apartment. Youngest Son's teachers almost all replied to my emails last night, I was impressed, being that it was Sunday. A bunch of them said "no work, get healthy!", which was really nice. But they were mostly the elective teachers :) His AP teacher said she wouldn't penalize him for turning the big project in late but he also has a unit test scheduled for tomorrow and to be honest, I don't think he'll be back at school tomorrow. I want him to take it easy today and rest.
From the kitchen... Well, I'm not back on the dishwashing wagon as I completely forgot to do them last night so I woke up to a dirty kitchen again and I wasn't happy with myself at all! So I need to do that. I had also forgotten to unplug the crockpot (I had left it to cook longer since the potatoes hadn't finished cooking) but Greg did that for me. So we'll have that for dinner tonight. (Scalloped potatoes and ham).
I am wearing... my PJs!
I am creating... nuttin', honey.
I am going... to take Princess to the vet's this morning for her to get her stitches out.
I am reading... blogs and the news. I know that I should be taking time to enjoy some books but right now I just don't feel the urge to read.
I am hoping... that Youngest Son gets over the bug he has soon and that the rest of us don't catch it. Historically, he's been sick for 4-5 days when he caught something.
I am hearing... Greg in the shower, the cats moving around in the Cat Room, distant traffic on the highway several blocks away.
Around the house... Daughter is still asleep, I gave Youngest Son a Tylenol at 6:15 a.m. and instructed him to sleep as much as he could, Greg is getting ready for work. Princess just settled herself for a nap (already?) on the back of the futon, her little face nuzzled against my kitty blanket. The other kittens are bugging the older cats.
A few plans for the rest of the week... So vet's this morning, monitoring my sick child, grocery shopping, daughter finds out if she's been accepted to UF or not, lunch with a friend, Middle Son finds out if he won anything in a Photography contest he entered a few months ago, Greg and I will try to visit another state park over the weekend. So we could have several things to celebrate... or not!
Sorry, I'm skipping one of the favorite things (can't think of anything this morning!) and the picture since I've been posting all the good pictures day by day :)
Have a good week!
