Week in the Life-

This week I participated in Ali Edwards "Week in the Life" series.  It is to capture and document the everyday of our lives.  Not the extrodinary but just the ordinary.  Here are a few of my photos of my week:

Monday:  Stripped bed and made bed back up.
Cleaned hall bathroom:  20 & 16 yr. old share this one.  Can you say yuck!!!

Had to go and buy clothes for Bob's golf trip to Myrtle Beach and I have a clean kitchen.  For some reason I was in the mood to clean today.

Tuesday: recieved napkins from Maeghan.  I participated in a Napkin Swap at Stiching under oaks.

Michael got stiches over the weekend. (A boy I watch after school)

Tuesday night dinner:  Tropical Smoothie for me and Megan and Hardee's for Justin.

Wednesday:  Worked on getting Project Life up to date

Megan got a haircut.  So did I but didn't get a picture of that.
Thursday:  Allergies are taking there toll on Megan, so we broke out the OTC.

The isle at Harris Teeter.


 Trays that I brought home.

 Friday:  I saw this on the back of a car at my daughters   school.  Loved it.

Riley lays anywhere I am untill it's time for bed.

This is my bed Friday night as I am getting ready for bed.  Riley gets Bob's spot.  He usually is on the floor.  I have my reading and phone if I need it.
Saturday AM:  Feeding the dogs.  One of there favorite times of day.
Courtney moving out today.  She found a place to rent with friends so off she goes again.  We will miss seeing her everyday.
  Ran errands & picked up meds.

Saturday night dinner and movie night.  Watching 2012 with the kids.
Sunday:  Reading Ali Edwards blog posts. Listened to the Roundtable by Paperclipping.  Cleaned up craft room and last but not least.
LAUNDRY!- I stripped all the beds and washed all bedding and pillows.  I also this weekend cleaned, sweeped, vacuumed and steam cleaned Megans room.  I am tired and going to bed.

I have enjoyed the process of taking pictures of everything.  I hope some of you participate next time around.  Now I have to print the pictures, gather the reciepts and journaling and put it all together in my Album.

Hope all of you enjoyed your week.

Week in Review-

I had a good week this week.  Monday started a little rough with watching the daycare kids, but the week got better and by Friday at 4pm when everyone was picked up (early too) I was having a good week.

I cooked dinner 3 out of the 5 nights and my DH cooked breakfast for dinner one night.  That left only 1 night this week as an anything night (kids love that).  Yesterday was my birthday so we had steak & cheese subs, which were wonderful because I didn't make them and we sat on the deck to eat them as a family.

My Birthday yesterday was wonderful and relaxing.  My cards were great and the best came from Megan with 5- Day off passes, which my husband knew nothing about.  We decided with our tight budget right now that cards were my gift, which to me means more since I know they stood in the card isle and read different cards to find the perfect one, which shows more love for me than any gift could.  Do any of you feel that way?

I have been following Becky Higgins blog here.  She is at the moment trying to find a dish towel that actually soaks up the water when drying dishes.

I found a new blog tonight which I am going to start following called Home Sanctuary.  She has a great blog so check it out.  We also got good news from our daughter (some may say good news!) but she is moving out next weekend.  She had to move back home at Thanksgiving because the friend she was living with up and moved out.  So Courtney got another lady to rent it and the landlord let her out of the lease.  So she has been home since, sharing a room with her 9 year old sister and it is getting old.  So her and 3 friends found an apartment about 5 miles from the beach which is where she works and the beach mentality kicks in (that if you work at the beach you can only live so far from the beach).  Who knew!  I am very happy for her and the garage will be a garage instead of a storage shed.

So enough of my ramblings.  I am going to leave you with a beautiful picture of wonderful Spring flowers and go help my hubby make dinner.

See you later and have a great week.
