I'm up early this morning and I really don't know why. I woke when Hubby got up this morning at 3:00 am and haven't been able to go back to sleep. Doesn't that just figure. I could have slept in today because I'm keeping Anika home from school today. The Flu and Stomach Virus is running rampant around here so I'd rather be safe than sorry. Yesterday the total of kids out was something near 500 and we live in a very small area. That is probably near 1/2 the kids that are enrolled in the system! Why they don't just call it off for the remainder of the week is beyond me. We were told that they would evaluate the numbers again today & then if they were still that low they would not have it the rest of the week. Let's hope they do just that.
Yesterday was a pretty good day around here. Anika went to school & the Little One's and I stayed home all day long. Ax was whiny the entire day. Please tell me it's just a phase and will pass. Annalee had a good day yesterday. Every time I looked at her she was smiling from ear to ear. I did a little housework and some laundry but that was about it. Axle's First Steps lady came out with another lady to do his Transition Meeting. This meeting was pretty much just telling me how to start his transition from First Steps here at home to Preschool/Headstart. I'm not sure which he will qualify for yet but I'm hoping Headstart. They only do 1/2 days 4 days a week whereas Preschool does Full Days 5 days a week.
Yesterday evening I took Anika to and from Cheer Practice which pretty much tied up my afternoon. I also stopped by the store and got some grub for dinner. I made Taco's and Spanish Rice. It's a favorite around here. The neighbor came down last night to do some trading with the Hubby and brought his boys with him so Ax and his son Cade spent the evening playing. They are almost the same age and listening to them talk to one another literally cracked me up.
I called it an early night last night. I was in the bed by 11:00 which is really unusual for me. It could also be why I was up with the chickens this morning.
Since I don't have a lot to share, I thought I'd do a "Daybook" post for you so here you go!
Today: Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Outside My Window: It's dark and very cold. It seems Winter is back here in Kentucky. Now if we could just get some snow. Last night we had freezing rain but it turned to all rain shortly after. I'm REALLY wanting some snow this year and it doesn't look as though I'm going to get it anytime soon.
I Am Thinking: That I should lay back down for a few hours after I finish this post. I really don't want to but I know if I don't, I will be worn out come midday!
I Am Thankful: That my crew has escaped the Flu so far (knock on wood)! There are so many people sick here in our area. It's so sad.
In The Kitchen: I will be making cookies today! I made some Lemon Cookies for one of the guys at Hubby's work through Christmas and he has asked for some more. This time I will be making him Lemon and Strawberry :)
I Am Wearing: My pajamas cause it's still way early. Actually it's Hubby's sleep shorts and my T-shirt. I love sleeping in his clothes!
I Am Creating: A years worth of date nights. It is on my agenda this year to have a date night with him at least once a month! I've been working on a list of monthly date night ideas. I figure if I have them planned out already, it will be easier to actually follow through with them.
I Am Going: To Church tonight and I'm really hoping my Husband will join me
I Am Wondering: How many Basketball Games we are going to have this week. It's Tournament week but I'm not sure how many games that consists of. Let's just hope one or two. I've said it before but I'll say it again, I'm ready for Season to be over with already!
I Am Reading: Nothing as of right now although I really want to read "The Happiness Project." Have you read it and if so did you love it?
I Am Hoping: The Thrift Store in town is open today. I've been up there a gazillion times and she is always closed. I have no idea how she makes any money.
I Am Looking Forward To: Some romantic alone time with my Husband. This date night list has me craving some romance. Isn't it crazy after 13 years you can still get excited about Date Night?
I Am Learning: To Trust God more. I'm such a control freak that it's really hard for me but I'm working on it.
Around The House: My sofa has to be shampooed today and my floors must be mopped. Yesterday Annalee had a nasty accident on the sofa along with Ax spilling his bottle on it. It's got to be cleaned!
I Am Pondering: Whether or not to take Axle to the doctor tomorrow. I made him an appointment the other day because he had a huge knot on his neck. Now this knot has been there forever and I've had it checked once. They told me then that it was just a swollen lymph node and nothing to worry about. Well, it got bigger and was visible to the eye for a few days but yesterday it was back to normal size. I'm thinking maybe he just had an infection of some sort or something. Maybe it's a wasted trip plus I don't really want them exposed to everyone who is sick. Ugh, decisions, decisions. Wonder why this parenting thing couldn't have came with a handbook?
A Favorite Quote for Today: I truly wish I could live by every single word of this!
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind
To talk Health, Happiness & Prosperity to every person you meet
To make all your friends feel there is something worthwhile in them
To look at the Sunny Side of everything and make your optimism come true
To think only of the best, to work only for the best & to expect only the best
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own
To forget the mistakes of the past & to press on to the greater achievements of the future
To wear a cheerful expression all the time & give a smile to every living creature that you meet
To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others
To be too large for worry. too noble for anger, too strong for fear & too happy to permit the presence of trouble
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word but in great deeds
To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you

One Of My Favorite Things: These Babies...like I'm SERIOUSLY addicted. I might have at least one per day and sometimes two. Yes, it's no wonder my teeth hurt!
A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week: Church, Axle's Therapy, Possibly a Doctor's Appointment, Basketball Games & Just general other Mommy and Wife Stuff!
Something I want to Share: A big Shout of Love to all of you my blog friends! Thanks for always reading!
