Ack- tomorrow is Monday, My joyous weekend come’s to an end…

Tomorrow I will do what I do every morning.  I will wake up and hit snooze and then 3 minutes later I will get up.  As I lay in bed during those 3 minutes thinking – ugh I don’t want to go to work, what if I just don’t go in, why not go back to being a stay-at-home mom…. Then the alarm goes off again and I sober up from my lazy, unrealistic, uncaring half asleep dream state and I crawl out of bed.  Then it’s off to the kitchen and grab of cup of coffee (hubby makes it before he goes to work and always leaves me a big cup on the hotplate).  After that I will go wake up the 2 redheads and get them ready for school while holding world war 3 at bay.

Well I feel I must share my joys over the last weekend.  First off, it was a 3 day weekend due to a snow day on Friday. So my weekend started early.  Hubby and I decided to go check out a 2015 GMC Acadia finally.  We went and checked it out, drove it and signed some papers.  We left with it and the 2006 PT Cruiser stayed behind to never be driven by us again! Yay me! I’ve wanted and SUV for years and we needed more space.  PT couldn’t hold hubby, 2 red heads, 2 labrador retrievers, me and luggage.  The Acadia holds all that comfortably.  Also, I feel safer sitting higher up off the road!

Another joy this weekend is I realized that next weekend is it for Girl Scout Cookie booths! That and I only had 1 – 2 hour shift this weekend!  I love doing things with my daughter but cookie booths can be miserable.  Luckily I like the moms I’ve been paired up with and my daughter gets along with the other girls really well.

One last joy is that I have solidified my spring break plans for the most part.  I start with heading up north to Portland for Girl Scout Girlfest.  It is a lot of fun for her and I enjoy myself too.  Then come back home and stay at home for 3 nights before heading to my sister’s house for 3-4 nights!!!!! I am SUPER EXCITED about that!

Alas, we have installed the vinyl plank flooring we bought in both the living room and kitchen.  I want to post pictures but we have yet to finish the trim.  Cold wet weather makes painting outside painting difficult, and hubby hates finish work!  I will try to get a post made about that soon.  It was quite an ordeal!

Anyways, be kind, passive and forgiving.  Tomorrow is never guaranteed!

Friday finally!

Friday- do you hear the word the same way I do?  It sounds like a smile and a sigh mixed together with a hint of excitement.  Oh how I love Fridays!

This week has brought me allergy relief finally.  I won’t go into the grossness of post nasal drip but I will tell you this.  When the Dr. says post nasal drip is burning your vocal cords you too will finally decide to stick with the daily allergy pills.  My voice is back finally and I feel so much better.  I love my cat, Muck, but she is a nuisance at times.  She isn’t the loving cute cat you see in pictures at all and due to the fact I am allergic to her she better know how lucky she is to have a cushy life.

Anyhoo, this week is over and on to the weekend.  Tomorrow I have a brunch with some friends of mine. Yay to girl time- good food, mimosa’s and lots of gabbing!  Gotta get up early enough to make coffee cake to take with me – yummy! My recipe is one my mom made when I was younger and I double the crumble topping for extra sweetness.  It will be a perfect desert for us ladies!  Then in the evening I am making Chicken Tortilla Soup (thanks to the Pioneer Woman for the recipe) for it.  It is a delicious recipe that cans super well also.

Tomorrow hubby is going and picking up new flooring!  It’s a beautiful dark wood vinyl.  We like hardwood but after research we have decided vinyl is what is right for us.  More on that with pictures soon!  I am super excited to update my house.  I suppose I should tell you about my 1947 home.  Maybe soon with pictures of what we’ve changed and pictures of what we haven’t (outdated and ugly).  Till then enjoy life.  Be true to yourself and give more then you receive.  God Bless
