Today has been a particularly rough day, from small things like the weather, to big things like feeling the black shadows of depression seeping into the corners of my mind. I don’t know why I am feeling so low today, but I am definitely in need of a mood and mind changer. This too shall pass…
Now for things on the lighter side…
Our chit-chat, as always is hosted by the amazing Carla. You can link your blog up on her post, answer the questions in her comments section, or answer the questions in my comments section. No matter what, we love to hear from our readers!
What are you…
Reading? You guessed it! The same thing I have been reading for the past few weeks… One Thousands Gifts. I will finish the book at some point in my life. It is a goal to get it done in February.
Listening To? Little missy’s noise machine through the monitor. I can also hear the crock pot sizzle and simmer every once in a while.
Watching? The little one napping (through the video monitor). Yes, I realized it is after 5:00 and she is napping, but she really needed it. It was a rough afternoon for her, between falling and scraping her hand and nothing making her happy. I put her down around 4:45 and within 5 minutes she was sprawled out, sound asleep. I may pay for this tonight, but for now, it is needed by all parties in the house.
Cooking/Baking? Tonight it is chili in the crock pot and corn bread (just from a box mix). I already have my Menu Plan Monday post typed and scheduled to post tomorrow morning!
Happy you accomplished this week? I am not sure about this one. I don’t know if it is my state of mind right now, but I am having a hard time coming up with anything that I accomplished this week. Maybe surviving 3 straight snow days… That is an accomplishment, right?
Looking forward to next week? Of course I am looking forward to pay day! It is payday for Hubs and I both on Friday! Woo-hoo! I am also looking forward to having lunch on Saturday with a dear friend whom I have not seen for a while. We were supposed to go today, but Miss C’s nap time and schedule were all messed up, so we had to cancel and reschedule.
Thankful for today? That I survived. Today has been one of the hardest days I have had in a while. I am glad it is almost over and that tomorrow brings a new day and new possibilities.
Bonus Question: *What lesson did you learn this week?* To check your shoes before you put them on. Now that the little missy has realized that she really likes putting things away, miscellaneous items end up in our shoes. Yesterday I found a Teddy Graham in my boot, and Hubs found two small toys in his work boot. So, if you are a visitor in our house and leave your boots or shoes out, beware that toys or food may end up in them.
Your turn! Have fun!
