Friend Making Monday

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... lots and lots of rain. It is warm out (unusual for Massachusetts in January) but it is pouring!
I am thinking.... that I have mixed feelings about being back at work after my 6 week break. I think I want to start classroom teaching again and am hoping to find a job at the college level next fall. I like the job I have now, but I don't feel fulfilled doing it. And since I have to be away from my family to work I figure I should feel fullfilled if I can (pretty deep for a simple questions huh?)

I am thankful... for my family, for the new baby we are expecting, for my home
I am praying... for my sister in law who is having some tests later this week. for more patience for myself and for my brother to figure out what he wants to do with his life

I am reading... Unspeakable by Sandra Brown and The Walmart Effect.

I am creating... a new hobby for myself, preschool materials for Madeline and some home renovation projects for Jon to do

From the kitchen... not much since I am not home, my dad is watching the kids and they are sleeping right now (or at least they should be). Earlier today I had bread dough rising.

Around the house... kids are sleeping, computer has a virus, laundry is piling up, art projecst are drying on the table.

One of my favorite things... Boston Cream donuts (they are off limits until June...)

A few plans for the rest of the week... ultrasound on Wednesday!!!, dinner with my grammy on Saturday, playgroups with the kids, trying some new dinner recipes, making homemade donuts with the kids

It is so hard to have patience for someone to figure out what they want. I will keep you in my thoughts for strength to get through it!

I have always wanted to make bread. I was just talking on Saturday about how I am going to do it soon!
I finally got some areas of the house clean. I'm just waiting on my floors to dry, and then I'm going to get everything to tackle the room I'm sitting in. If only you could see it now! haha

Happy Monday!

Happy FMM!
I can't wait to have another baby. Didn't realize how badly I wanted it until I recently had a miscarriage. Not too far along though...Maybe next month. :)

Good luck with your job or your job search. I hope it all works out.

The Walmart Effect sounds intriguing. I haven't heard of it, but may go check it out.

Good luck with your ultrasound on Wednesday and Happy FMM!
