The Simple Woman's Day Book

Oustside My Window: It's been a very dreary windy day. Though it was nice that it was still daylight when the hubs got home.

I am hearing: Madden Football on the Wii. There's always someone of the male species playing video games in this house.

I am thinking: A few things... I think my header/3 columns may be a bit squishy and busy. I can't decide what do and if I should make a new header just slightly less busy. I'm also thinking a Dr. Pepper would be so tasty nasty right now.

I am thankful for: the library and "free" books. I'm not sure my sanity could take it at this point without books and no T.V.

I am wearing: jeans and my Wii boogy shirt that I won with my Wii Boogy game last year.

I am hoping: That we do actually get some decent rain that is expected this week. I'm sure the only reason it's coming is because I finally set the timer for the sprinkler last week.

From The Kitchen;
Yesterday we had this Pasta Fagoli Soup which is supposed to be like the soup from Olive Garden. I will say it was quite hardy and yummy. It was a little bit thicker than soup to me and more like a goulash, this could have been because I did it on the stove and not in the crock pot. The hubs..I mean Clayton could not get enough of it and it makes a ton!
Monday: Chicken Fried Rice
Tuesday: Frozen Pizza
Wednesday: Spaghetti
Thursday and Friday are to be determined until I get to the store.
I am reading:
Just got back from the library and picked up Memoirs of a Geisha and One Hundred Years of Solitude. I haven't heard much of the last one, other than it was on the Facebook 100 reads. It happened to be in the same section as Memoirs so I grabbed it. I feel some heavy reads coming on and also grabbed The Choice by Nicolas Sparks. I figured I'll need a good feel good make you cry book after the heavy reading. Sparks usually does that for me.

I am creating: We created a little cotton ball sheep today, while talking about March coming in like a lion and out like a lamb. Yes, I'm still getting down with my home school self. How productive I've been is another story.

Around the house:
The boys are going to grandmas next week for Spring break, I've been making lists for each room in the house and exactly what needs to be done for Spring cleaning. I'm having serious doubts that I will complete the whole house. At least my intentions should be worth something right?

One of my favorite things: I won an Amazon gift card from Sarah at BecomingSarah. Why is it that when I'm just browsing around for the heck of it I find a ton of things I want but will never buy, yet I win "free money" and I can't think of a dang thing to buy? I caved and got Apples to Apples for 7 and up. I also downloaded some mp3's with what was left. I can't wait to play as I've heard this game is a lot of fun

A few plans for the rest of the week: This week is actually a busy least for us. Tomorrow is Open House at the school (Is it me or does it seem strange that Open House is in March?) Wednesday- Wonderboy has an eye appointment..his first since the move. You know it's a pain in the behind to get a referral from the former doc and then make an appointment and explain that he's not just a random kid off the street that needs his eyes checked since his are of the crossing variety.
The former doctors office was nice enough to give me his "condition" for the new doctor. Now, I've taken medical terminology, oh a half a million years ago, so you would think that I should be able to speak the lingo. Uh.. that would be a negative. I felt idiotic trying to tell the new receptionist with out getting tongue tied.. She at least knew right off what I was trying to say. Hopefully the new doc won't hee haw around about surgery and be straight with me on whether he needs it or not.

I didn't mean to make this post a random rambling. Wait, that's the whole reason I do this meme since it fulfills my random need and puts it in a nice orderly format. To bad I still ramble on randomly.

A Picture Thought:
How about a random pic to go along with a random post? I'm still trying to meet my Wonderboy quota for the month, since I always seem to forget him. Your probably thinking how sad that he has to be thrown in with a rambling post and you would be correct, it is sad. It is what is though.

I know exactly what you mean about having money and not being able to find anything to buy with it. Every time I go shopping for anything and know we don't have the money to spend right now, I see several things I would kill to have. But give me a gift card or birthday money, whatever, and I can't find anything, anywhere. Nothing that I am remotely interested in.

Because there are no other males in the house, I get drug into playing along sometimes. I caved last night and played RockBand.

Congrats on winning the gift card! I am the same way. I got two gift cards to one of my favorite stores that I shop at all the time for my birthday. I still haven't spent them in three months. It's as if I have to find something "special".

Apple's to Apples is fun though!

I think maybe the layout would feel less cluttered if the sidebars and background were a different color than the main text of your blog? I'm not sure, it's just a suggestion.

I love Apples to Apples - it's one of my all time favorite games. :) Also loooooved Memoirs of a Geisha. Haven't read the other, but I hear it's good!
