Wednesday's Journal

What’s happening in my home?….
In my kitchen…Mother Hubbard's cupboards are bare, lol. Finances were slim the last two week thanks to me. I did not stop completely at a stop sign but "rolled" through according to a cop. I don't agree but it cost me $120.00 :( So my food budget was slashed. No extra for us, but we did have some good dinners thanks to Aldi's! Lasagna, Chicken Parm, Meatloaf, Shrimp Scampi Pasta, Tuna Noodle Casserole. I do miss going the luxury to go out to eat :) My favorite restaurant Quaker Steak and Lube, AppleBee's, Marino's (local Italian place). Thank goodness payday is Friday and believe me I AM NOT "rolling" through stop signs any time soon.
With our marriage… So grateful that Chris is understanding and that it was funny that I got my first ticket and it wasn't for speeding.
With the children… do you want to babysit for me???? I have three, you can watch for a couple hours. That's the kind of week it's been.
Around the homestead… I am getting a dining room set!!! I found a Queen Anne style on for $300.00. Table w/ leaf, 4 chairs, 2 captain chairs and china cupboard!!! We pick it up tomorrow!
In my “Inner Man”…. still reading the One Year Bible but I have to admit, I'm reading 2-3 days a time :( My "outer" man seems like she is being torn in 20 different directions.


  1. Sorry your week has not gone well but a new one is coming up soon.

  2. Can't wait to see the new dining room set. Glad Sam's birthday isn't on Memorial Day weekend. We are not allowed to request holiday days off anymore. Is it March yet?
