Tuesday that feels like Monday

Tonight, we are told to expect storms by our weathermen . . . which means our little weather radio will be blasting us out of bed when watches or warnings are posted. This could be a very long night.

Today was the first day back to school for my kids. It was nice that they all were excited to go to school. Cody and I had an o.k. day at home. I worked on balancing the bank statement for work . . . I have two items I cannot locate, so an email off to Melissa should help. She will be able to call the bank card company to advise us of what the transaction was from. I am OCD about the bank book being to the penny correct.

We have been having some problems with our boys following directions. Apparently, little boys tend to be a bit scatter brained and easily forget what they are told. This has been going on for several days now . . . so beginning last night, when one of them didn't do the chore I asked them to do, like washing the table and chairs after dinner . . . I go ahead and do the chore - then I ask them to bring me their Easter basket . . . well you probably guessed that I get a little something for doing their chore. So far, I have collected two chocolate bunnies . . . Who knows what tomorrow will bring. My sister Janeie has a cute little saying . . . "if you snooze, you lose!" I share that little tid bit with them too.

Randy wants an Ipad. He has a Mac and now wants the Ipad. He also told me today that we should trade our SUVs in and take out two leases instead. I quickly over ruled him and told him to be happy with what he has . . . besides, mine is a 2008 and only has 6,500 miles on it. They are both in A1 shape. I think sometimes it is too easy to change things out and we just need to enjoy what we have. Do I hear an Amen?

My week is messed up . . . is yours? Having the kids home on Monday and sending them back today has me thinking today is Monday. It really messes with you!

I have loaded all of our Easter photos to Shutterfly. Our Easter book should be fun to get together. I love Shutterfly. I am behind a few picture books, but that is easily made up - that is when I have the time. It is so much easier and less time consuming than scrapbooking. I always had things strung all over when I scrapbooked.

Well, I need to finish my coffee and head to bed. Have sweet dreams everyone!

hahaha, I kept thinking yesterday was Monday too!! To the extent that I was surprised when our Organic Doorstop delivery (which comes Tues & Fri) arrived - thinking why are they here on Monday?!? haha!!

I agree, it's so easy to fall into the trap of wanting the newest thing... so much better to be content and look at all the amazing things we already have!!

Love you Julie!!
