The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY, January 19, 2009...
Outside my window...a fresh coat of snow on the ground and cooling temperatures. The heat wave was nice, but reality has hit. It's still January and we have a lot of winter left to get through before we will see our yard again.
I am thinking...that I wish my kids would get to sleep at a decent hour!! I'm having the bedtime blues....
I am thankful for...having my husband back from Iraq to visit with us this week. He has to return this next weekend :(
From the learning rooms...We are still taking this week off of schoolwork so that we can spend as much time as possible with Andy. We'll be back at it next Monday.
From the kitchen...lots of great food cooked by my loving husband. This past week has been great - enchiladas, spaghetti, tuna noodle salad, steak, pot roast, and even an apple pie. Yum!
I am wearing...PJs of course. I will get dressed when I need to leave the house :)
I am on
I am let the girls go to the movies with Andy today. I had considered going also, but a 2 yr old and 8 mo. old make it hard :)
I am reading...I just finished 3 books this past week and I now have nothing to read. Hopefully I will make it to the library this week (maybe by myself so that I can peruse the shelves!).
I am hoping...that Andy has safe travels next weekend and that it's not so hard for the kids to say goodbye to him this time around. He still has 8 months left on this deployment, so we're sad to see him go again for such a long time. :(
I am hearing...the sounds of the dryer. It seems like it is always running...
Around the house...not much. Just family time!
One of my favorite things...having my family together.
A few plans for the rest of the week: taking the kids to the movies, bowling, eating out at a restaurant, dance and gymnastics classes, and I have a hair appointment on Friday
Here is picture thought I am sharing...(add your picture here)
