Its Sunday night about 9:30pm. Just getting things ready for the busy/crazy week ahead. Kids are sound asleep in their beds all tucked in. Today was a productive day. I just have to say I LOVE thrift stores! DJ and Erika are heading to Mt Baker this weekend for a retreat for church. They needed snow pants/boots. I went on the hunt today and found pants and boots for Erika at Goodwill for $17 all together. Found pants for DJ at Kmart for $17 on sale, still on the search for men's size 13 winter boots. Spent some great quality time with Erika today while we shopped. I love those conversations I have with the kids when we are together one on one each one is very special!
The kids were watching the FoodNetwork yesterday and decided I needed to make Chicken Cordon Bleu tonight. It was very good and was a hit with the kids! It amazes me if they pick out the meal or help cook it they will try just about anything!
Put a plan in place for the week. I work M-F and this time of year will put in 45-50 hours a week. I am blessed to be able to work from home most of the time and am able to put in my extra hours before the kids get up or after they go to bed. Too bad I don't get paid overtime though!!
Here is the week in a snapshot, this week is a little "light" with a holiday in the mix!
Monday- No preschool for Veterans day. Danielle has dance rehearsal at 5:30pm. I meet with the apartment management tomorrow to discuss issues with my downstairs neighbors (praying this goes well). Dinner will be chicken & rice and peas.
Tuesday- Everything is "cancelled" this week for Tuesday due to Veterans day. No school, no middle school church program etc. Kids and I will have a movie night! Dinner will be tuna casserole and green beans.
Wednesday- Preschool for Tyler, need to pick up fundraiser orders at the school, get Erika to the church by 5 for worship team practice and then all of us to church by 6:30 for Refuge. I love this time of extended worship and communion and love that I get to share that with my children! Dinner will be soup/sandwiches.
Thursday- Preschool for Tyler, Ballet for Danielle, have to drop off the kids bags/sleeping bags etc at the church for the Middle school retreat! Dinner will be homemade chicken nuggets, buttered noodles and green salad.
Friday- Drop DJ and Erika off at church that evening for the retreat. Will have a movie/popcorn night with Danielle and Tyler! Dinner will be homemade pizza.
