I called this "Starting over" because I feel like that is really what all of us are doing.
I am starting a new daycare.
Ashley is starting her 3rd. year in college, and is going to be living in the college Apartments.
Glen started a new job a few months ago.
My niece and her husband are having their first baby.
My other niece got a promotion at work.
My other niece got married this past summer.
Friends are moving, a friend has died, friends are getting divorced, and new friends have come.
So many years it is the "same old, same old" but this year has been the year for change.
There are new beginnings for so many of us.
I have been keeping up pretty well with the Olympics. I have been watching almost every night. I really enjoy it. I love the beach volleyball, and am on the edge of my seat yelling and cheering on Misty May-Treanor and Carrie Walsh, and Todd Rogers and Phillip Dalhausser, two of the American teams. One thing I find very unfair about the whole thing. the women wear these little bikinis, but the men wear shorts and shirts! I am not complaining about the bikinis, I am complaining about the shirts! Come on guys show the beautiful muscles God gave you.
I have never watched the TV show "Extreme Make Over, Home Edition". But I just heard from two different sources that the next one is in Geneva, NY. For those of you that don't know, that is about 1/2 hour from here. so i am going to look it up and see when it is going to be on TV. Don't know when they are starting construction. I will let you know when I hear something.
"Jenn's Bookshelf" is having another book giveaway "Confessions of a Contractor". Give it a try! Link is on the right.
I have not done this in a long time so I thought now was a good time.
A Simple Woman's Day Book
Outside my window... It is cloudy, rained real hard last night, sprinkled this morning, and trying to sunshine now.
I am thinking... How tired I am and how hard I have been working. I should take a few days off before the real work begins!
I am thankful for... Everything that has gone so well with my daycare, How God let everything just fall into place.
From the kitchen.. Hmmm... not much! There are groceries all over the counter because I would rather be doing this than putting them away.
I am creating... Baby stuff!
I am going... to be doing final touches on my daycare room, making sure everything is in its place for Mon.
I am wearing... Cotton pants, Adirondack T-shirt, barefeet
I am reading... "A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains" by Isabella Bird, it is a true story about a woman traveling alone in 1873.
I am hoping... that I have everything perfect for Mon, that everything runs smoothly, and that Ashley gets off to college smoothly and happily.
I am hearing... cars outside, Martina cleaning herself, and the clicking of the keys, and my own voice as I talk to myself.
Around the house... everything is a mess except for the daycare room, LOL!
One of my favorite things... is to be alone in the quiet house, which I am right now.
A Few plan's for the rest of the week... Clean house, get groceries, knit, read, on Fri. I host my 4th annual "Teen night" at the library.
New song is by my man Trace Adkins! Favorite male Country singer, (and he's real pretty to look at too).
My new top 5 list - Favorite cereals. (remember to comment with your own)
1.Reese's Puffs (Yum!)
2.Total Raisin Bran
Last weeks poll again was all over the board, but "Go to the bathroom" got the most votes.
This weeks poll is about one of my favorite things, Reading! How much do you read in a week, month, year?
