The Simple Woman's Day Book

Oustside My Window:
It's sunny and windy and I promised the boys we'd go to the know..soon like when mommy finishes catching up on blogs since she was gone resting from a long trip.

I am hearing: Madden Football on the Wii.

I am thinking: A lot of things at the moment: Can we hold off one more day to go to the grocery store even though we have nothing in the house but a frozen whole ham, one chicken breast, and a little bit of bacon? My house is a pit from the two bachelors that lived it up all weekend, I'll be glad for Tuesday when things are back to "normal" and do these kids ever go to school cause it's starting to seem like never?

I am thankful for: A safe return. Big Bertha was a bit jerky during the gear shifting. Which is probably not good.

I am wearing: jeans and admittedly an OU shirt. Yes I hang my head in shame and have short term memory.

I am hoping: To use this Children's Place gift card eventually. I had high hopes of a little shopping extravaganza with my mom at the mall. I came home empty handed. I hate to say this, but the great state of Oklahoma is in a rut. It seems like everything is closing down. The mall we went to had nothing and was pretty much just a hang out for teens and toddlers. They did have a play area and merry go round but that was about it. At least the youngest two had a good time for a short time. We were going to just head to Tarjay or Kohl's but for the first time ever I was so bummed that I decided it best we just head back home. I didn't want to actually spend my own money since I have this dang card burning a hole.

From The Kitchen; I just haphazardly made the list for the week like 10 minutes ago-
Monday-Random stuff like dog food or maybe Ramen soup cause I really don't want to go to the store tonight.
Tuesday-Good old faithful spaghetti
Wednesday-Chicken Tacos and/or chicken tortilla soup
Thursday-Chicken Fried Steak
Friday-Cola Ham

I am reading: Wicked The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. I'm really enjoying it. I'd love to see the play.

I am creating: I made these bookworm bookmarks Friday for Wonder Boy's class as his Valentines. They turned out pretty cute. I just hope they know their book marks. (Can you tell I'm trying to make up for that concert thing?)

Around the house: I'm not even going to mention the state of my house. Yet I feel vegging on the blog is so much more important. Besides what would I do the rest of the week?

One of my favorite things: Was just chilling out on my parents front porch not worrying about dishes, laundry, or even kids. It was always my favorite place to sit and day dream for as long as possible. That's about the excitement of my weekend.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Getting stuff mailed out-giveaways and Valentines and all that fun stuff. I have no plans for Valentines at all. I'm not even going to mention it to the hubs. He's probably clueless. It really helps him since he gets no advertising reminders from the T.V. Maybe in my own weird way, I'm testing him to see if he really does forget. So I can play the guilt game and make him take us to eat Sunday..when I remind him. Not that I would do that or anything.

A Picture Thought: I haven't really had a "photo session" with the kids lately. This is Game Boy horsing around.

A lot of our malls are starting to look pretty dismal to - it's hard to see stores closing, especially big stores like Circuit City really CLOSING down. I hope the economy finds a way to perk itself up soon...

Hope you get to use that card soon. the state of the economy here in Ohio is awful also. and While I have been to the mall a number of times I haven't spent any money there.. Just there letting my teenager and her friends hang out :) It's sad.

I'm reading twilight over again.. and I should have a plan for my kitchen this week but I don't.. Think tonight will be leftovers.. YUM.. LOL

with 3 of my kids getting sick off and on for the last 3 weeks and then Sweet Pea with Mono.. my life seems like it has been turned upside down and I"m so unorganized.

I always just break down and use the gift card online. Children's Place has been having great sales online lately.

I hate it that I can see lots of stuff to buy, but as soon as I get a gift card, all the cute stuff is gone and all they have is crap! LOL
