I'm sitting at Starbucks waiting for my car to repaired. Again. And hopefully it takes this time.
It's my last week of school, too!
I also need to tweak some report cards
Finish up my end of year gifts
Make some thank you cards
Ordered some shoes today too!
Thanks MrsC. I think I had about as good a time as I could. 15 min of it included killing time in the bathroom.
My friend in South Africa skyped so we could be part of her child's bday party!!! Now I can say I've been to a party in South Africa!!! LOL!!!
Got my hair colored and highlighted
Coffee with mom
Canning pepper relish
Run a few errands
Nieces' grad party tonight
My wife is working my butt off ........ Need to find the escape hatch ...
Chilling out at home with my family. Also looking up tilapia recipes for dinner tonight.
It's super hot today, otherwise I might have wanted to go to the park or something.
Went to the farmer's market in the nearby big city with my future mother-in-law this morning, and then ran to Sam's and the grocery store to get food for the week.
Now I'm going to relax a bit before making my "wedding week" checklist of everything that needs to happen before the big day next Saturday!
Studying for my ESL certification test which I take next Thursday. God help me.
Caesar - I love tilapia pan fried with some fish breading, but I've even done it in the microwave with just a little lemon. Mmmmm.
This will be a very busy week, amakaye. Good luck with the preparations.
Worked four hours this morning at Disney.
Went to Verizon to straighten out the bill they messed up.
Headed to Boston Market to bring home dinner.
Watching Restaurant Impossible...my daughter turned me on to that show.
Have a great week, amakaye! Just remember, it is your life together and not just the wedding - I had a friend completely freak out over several MINOR mishaps on her wedding day, and it kind of set a bad tone for the marriage.
Have a wonderful time!!
It is about 67 degrees and cloudy here. My daughter and I got our hair cut. We did a little shopping, and we are working at a church festival tonight.

- Shopping at Big Lots...it's their 20% off everything sale!
- Reading for grad school
Tomorrow we are going to head out early to the farmer's market in town. Hopefully we will find some great produce! Saturday night will be game night at my sister's house so that should be fun. I have to bring dessert! If the pie lady is at the farmer's market maybe I will bring one of those.

Grab a light lunch/dinner
Got to meet up w/ a friend yesterday & went to the movies!
I'm taking BF to work and hanging out with him today. He's going to finish my tattoos unless the place is super busy.
Yard work and then going to see a show with a friend.
Studying for my Generalist exam I take on monday!!! :thumb:
We spent the morning (unsuccessfully) trying to get our new vehicle titled and registered...but my husband did pass the written test he had to take to get his out-of-state license transferred over!
I finally made it to the farmer's market and they had less tables set up than usual. I got some corn but didn't see anything else that caught my eye. My sister gave us some jars so we can start making pickles tonight!
The Yankees won! Beautiful day at the stadium...not too hot...enjoyed a cold beer, a big pretzel and watching the Bronx Bombers.
Now home, making a frittata for dinner.
I also went to one of my local FMs & got hummus, pita chips (lemon & garlic), & vegan mac & cheese.
Went and did a little food shopping this morning and bought some watermelon, strawberries, greek yogurt, veggies, tuna, etc. I am working summer school during the week so I wanted to stay in the rest of the day and get some things done.
I am redecorating my cozy little ''den'' (also used as a home office) and I rearranged some furniture, sewed an antique white slip cover for my Victorian chair so pretty!
I also had last nights left overs from a Seafood restaurant for dinner, delicious grilled shrimp, rice pilaf & sautéed broccoli...yummm!
SubCT, sounds good!
I ended up also doing some laundry & cleaning my kitchen, front door area, & bathroom floors. Also, cleaned more of the kitchen & bathroom.
Thank you..i am a homebody I must admit..love my place

Well, today, I'm trying my best to finish up a 2500 word grad school paper due tomorrow night. There's also another thing I want to do that takes 3 hours. Once I get those 2 things completed today, I'll be happy!
Final preparations in my classroom today...kiddos come Monday!
I'm trying to get on top of my school work for the year so I can get get back to my "never bring work home" mode.
I've had kids a week already, but my planning time has been filled with a bunch of back-to-school stuff. I haven't had time to grade papers and prep like I need to do.
We picked up zucchini, green beans and green peppers at the farmers market. Some guy was trying to sell us his jams, jellies and nut butters. They looked good but probably contained too much sugar so we skipped it. Also went to the grocery store and Dollar Tree!
Mr trip to the farmers' market yielded: golden beets, red onions, baby potatoes, green beans, pattypan squash, melon and dehydrated organic pears. Yummy! Now I'm watching baseball and sorting throughout some of the boxes of school stiff from my basement.
We're heading to a good friend's wedding Beautiful weather!
I'm getting ready to go to Mom's house for supper, and then I'm going to school to work awhile.
I don't like to bring things home, and this year I had vowed not to go to school on weekends either . . . but I've not had a single day to work in my room during planning this past week, so I'm going in today to get some things done. Nothing else to do anyway. Too wet to mow grass. No reason to shop. BF is sick.
Mani and pedi with daughter and friend!!
I've been to beach overnights with friends 3 times in the last week and a half so today was a sleep late, roll around, run errands with dh kind of day. Watched the Yankees game, a few loads of laundry, now the golf tourney is on. Made baba ganoush and focaccia to go with salmon my sweets is grilling for dinner. Sipping on cocktails, loving the early evening.:wub:
Completed my first Spartan Sprint today! What an experience! It was painful and muddy and LONG, but I feel so good about myself for completing it. Yes it took me FOREVER to finish, but I did. The people along the course were SO supportive, and helped me when my calf muscles decided to completely seize up (lol only me). Plus the medics were cute!!
I definitely needed this. After a rough few months, my confidence has taken a hit and I feel like a shell of who I used to be. This definitely helped me realize I am capable of a lot more than I realize.
