For today, Tuesday, March 2, 2010
On My Mind...I was heading upstairs to take a hot shower, and had a detour at the computer and ended up copying and pasting Cindy's daybook prompts onto my blog. Why the hot shower? Because I'm FREEZING! I spend an hour talking to friends outside PE and another hour talking to friends outside Theatre (some of the same friends) and now I'm chilled to the bone...isn't it March?! Isn't this FLORIDA??!!
Outside My Window...It's cloudy and windy...and cold!
What We're Reading...I'm reading Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom. I read all of the new American Girl books (Rebecca) over the last two weeks. Madi is reading Pictures of Hollis Woods for next week's bookclub (I still have to read that too). Jonathan is listening to the Red Badge of Courage on CD. Jake and I are reading Underground Railroad books, today was Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt and Under the Quilt of Darkness.
What we're Listening to...a bunch of Lenten CDs.
What We're Watching...American Idol of course!! We're also hooked on DVRed Cosby Show episodes right now.
Did you hear Kate Gosselin is going to be on Dancing With the Stars...I'm not sure what to think about that...I'm torn between feeling sorry for her and feeling completely annoyed by her. (last year at his time I'd just read her book and loved her!)
I am hoping...that the weather warms up soon, but doesn't get too hot too quickly.
Quotable Quote...If there is any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow human being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again. William Penn
In the Kitchen... cookies in the oven oatmeal chocolate chip with flax meal and chia seeds...good for you and YUMMY too! Tacos tonight.
Around the House...everyone is back on track with their chores...Jake is misc this week, Madi is laundry, and Jonathan is kitchen. I'm attempting a rudimentary schedule (it's not written down, just in my head) where we make sure to get three solid hours of schoolwork in each day. The times will vary because everyday is different, but the amount of time should stay the same. We're two for two so far!
Coming Up this week...the usual without too many extras thrown in. Next week is "show week" (GREASE) and is another story all together!
