Okee-dokee. Just 20 more events until my Saturday is free. I wonder if I can finish the crossword.

I braved walmart to start shopping for dgc school supplies, thinking since this isn't military payday weekend I would be safe.  The line wasn't bad, but the store was full!!

DH actually likes it. He sits and watches it with the kids. I told him it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to tell anyone.?

Ds11 left the tv on and dh, ds32, and I were eating.  We caught ourselves all watching the mermaid show without a kid in the room to blame it on.

I love everything from the 70s. My friends used to say I couldn't be held accountable for my taste in clothing or music (country) because I was white.

I had forgotten that MIL likes to eat out as a method of not insulting my cooking (she's very sneaky). Not a huge issue before I went gf but now she's spending $15 on the family and then an additional $9 on just me. Matt's stopping at the store so we have burgers at home for me. I appreciate that she's making sure I'm taken care of but she clearly didn't expect it to cost so dang much. We don't eat out so I didn't either.

Her choice. She is welcome to eat your cooking.

We cooked supper, and although I have been to the AFSA at least twice in the last two days, we had to scrounge for sides.  It was yummy, though.

I fell asleep twice today.

 

I am washing new dishcloths and dishtowels my aunt made me and sent!  I have been using the last ones she gave me since 2011.

The goat has been banished.

I'm so close to done with literature!  So so close!  Why has no one written a free literature guide to John Donne's Holy Sonnet 14 suitable for 4th- 8th graders?  Fine I will make it myself.  

We finished our read-aloud tonight - The Grey King (Susan Cooper).  Dd9 dozed off for the last couple pages and then sobbed the rest of the evening over it.  I keep forgetting to write inscriptions in books.  Have to get it done by Monday because dd19 is coming home!  :smile:   I didn't get the mint extract started.  Hopefully tomorrow.

I am playing for both services tomorrow, so it will be a long morning.  Will definitely need a nap later.  Goodnight!

Hi.

Step goal, day 9.

Ireland update: Her organs are descended and they don't know why. The fungus has spread to her arms but they're going to try to save them.

Gud mrng. Must needs caffeine to survive. Very tired, but I need to get the grocery list done, and find out where the funk in the refrigerator is lurking and so vanquish it. Also need to vanquish Chapter 3 edits, critique a chapter for a friend, do my work for the class where I'm a week behind and one internet short of being able to keep up with, and basically survive. Wish me luck!

ETA: Also decide if I'm doing school this week (I think not), plan what I need to eat at work later this week, decide whether it would be a good week to write and finish my Camp project, and clean house when I'm not writing, and tweak query letters, chapters, and try to get everything perfect for a flush of querying to start up again in August. Plus school planning for fall. Plus it's my actual birthday, although I will probably plan my own little celebration for Oct 22, because I want to do outdoor stuff on a lake or river somewhere, and it's way too hot to enjoy outside in July.

DH went down early this am to work on building the spillway for the creek crossing. He had an audience. The neighbor's chickens came over to supervise.

Ireland updates:

  • Her organs are destended, not descended. They're video updates by mom and she cries so I don't always get everything.
  • Her hands aren't salvageable.
  • Other bad things.

We're home from church.  I didn't have to drive kids home.  We started a new Bible study in evening church, and I think it's going to be a good one.  Ds32, ds11, and I have been to HEB for a few groceries.  It was packed!  Why are so many people out shopping when it's a thousand degrees outside???

I just posted this in a a fitness accountability group on FB:

Nothing real last week or this upcoming week due to inlawness. I have been doing particular things that I don't often do like climb to the top of the Astoria Column and run back and forth from the ocean to where (disabled) FIL sits on the benches and I am amazed at the difference I feel leading a gluten free lifestyle. Looking back it was like trying to do everything with a terrible flu. It's incredible how much more energy I have now. Don't get me wrong, I'm still Mommy tired, but I haven't cried from exhaustion since I intentionally ate gluten for my celiac test.

We've been busy weekending.  

I've come to the conclusion that the 9' diameter azalea and rhododendron bushes are just planted too close to the house (18" out) and that I can't save them.  They are flowering at the tips of 8' long branches, which makes trimming impossible.  I'm going to enjoy them this summer, and then dig them out and begin again.  I'm super bummed. I'm really frustrated that all of the landscaping at this house was managed incorrectly.
