Listen in: total blissful silence

View out the Window: Sunshine

Plans for the day: DH is sick, baby is sick, I am sick...so I guess I just need to have a girls night get together and clean my house. Logical right? Oh, and make baby food and cook for the freezer....

Beauty in the Common things: finding enough couch fabric to recover all the yuky pillows and having a Mammaw that taught me how to sew.

Dinner plans: Calzones

So, now DH is sick. Great. Men seem to fall to pieces when they are sick. Why is it that when we are sick...life continues to move forward? I dont' understand it. My babysiter went out of town today. DH was sick and couldn't spend the day taking care of baby boy? Not that I really expect an answer...and I don't mind. Its just one of those little things that puzzle me. So, I finally lowered the curtin rod inthe office and washed the sheers in there. Last night. I also found more of the lovely white fabric for my couch. Yes, white...just in case someone other than the two people I know actually read this. So, I sewed covers for the pillows and put pieces over the arms. I think the best solution would be a new couch. Not in the budget though. Let's see, I have decluttered 80% of the house. Flylady would be so pleased. I have given away 80% of the stock piled clothes from the kids. I took 5 loads of stuff to the church resale shop. I organized my kitchen. I organized my scrapbooking spot...my closet...the babys room...the laundry room...and a good portion of the office. I feel so free. I also don't sleep. But, who needs sleep. Oh, and major news to report. I have joined the gym...went to a "dance24" class and I have cut back on Dr. Pepper...2 a day. My medication helps wiht the psyco withdrawls I am sure I would be feeling other wise! Hehe. Baby boy is trying to crawl and is so freaking cute! He has three teeth and is still mostly bauld. So cute! My DD's are doing great in school and love that baby!

Enough for now!

No School Today...

Listen in: Baby Boy coughing and fussing

View Outside: Sunshine and dripping

Plans for the Day: Be lazy! Went to store for medicine, bought fire logs, took DH's laundry to the cleaners. Maybe do some laundry. Baby is crying and I gotta go!

A little catch up is in order...

Listen in: Fireplace crackling and sleet on the chimney

Beauty in the Common things: children sleeping

View outside: I have no idea...to darn cold to go look. Its dark and sleety. Good enough for me!

Dinner: We had breakfast for dinner. It was on the menu for tomorrow. That is going to be revised!

Plans for the rest of the night: stay up and make sure Brent gets up for work, upload pictures and post them, maybe some laundry.
