Happy Homemaker Monday

thanks sandra at diary of a sahm for hosting this each week. go there to read her & other of her blog readers monday posts :)

On my bedside table: now i'm reading 19 minutes by jodi picoult. really good book, tough subject matter. well written though. i'm about 1/2 way into it.- as as last week- didn't get any reading done at all :(

On my TV: finally saw "the curious case of benjamin button" long movies, great story telling. loved watching "twilight" agian this weekend with my brother and sister who hadn't seen it!!!!

On the menu for tonight: i'm thinking tonight will be a left over night- have several nights of dinners in the fridge :)

On my To Do List: gotta take trav to the dr this morning...think he's got an ear infection and allergies. poor little guy. then just try and tidy up a bit-nothing major today around the house.

New Recipe I tried last week: not new, but my favorite! i hadn't made these with the complete chocolate overload though. usually i use the white almond bark...i needed chocolate and more chocolate.

made some for special teachers and bus drivers

Looking forward to: hearing from the kindergarten about adam's speech eval results...yep, still no update. calling today.

Homemaking Tip for this week: again- magic erasers to the rescue-they work great on shower floors & walls!!!

Favorite Photo of the week: it's fluffy time! ok, the lighting was bad, but the show was so great!!! he's such a funny guy. my cheeks were hurting so much from laughing!

Favorite Blog Post of the week: i love denise's honesty! she wrote a quick post on her long labor and delivery of "her little piece of sunshine" babies are just that :) congrats denise! moriah is beautiful!

Lesson learned the past few days: my house will never be company ready and perfect...3 kids live here, so instead of mopping, i took a was a good choice, LOL!
On my Prayer List: tim's mom, trav's ear stuff- although he's running around here w/adam right now-for my aunt diana's sister facing big health problems.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: Ephesians 4:32 (New International Version)
32Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
can't hear that too many times! i try and remind the kids that no matter how much your sibling or friend annoys, hurts, bothers you...once they say they are sorry (& sometimes even when they don't) it's best to forgive and move on.

I had to chuckle when I read your Homemaking Tip - I see you're a big fan of Magic Eraser, too. I've seen Fluffy in concert as well - I don't think I've ever laughed so hard.

Glad to find your blog via Sandra; look forward to reading more.

Would that I could learn that my home will never be done or perfect too. I say it but in my heart I keep thinking that someday it will be.

I LOVE Magic Eraser, I have tons in my house LOL

You reminded me of Twilight, I'll have to watch it again, I really enjoyed it.

Have a great Monday!

well, my house is far from perfect, but it's comfortable :) i really did have a choice between mopping before my family came in for the weekend or showering. LOL don't think anyone cared if the floor was a little dirty, we had a wonderful weekend. how does anyone mop the kitchen with 3 kids in the house???

don't forget about the giveaway girls!!!

Lovely daybook - I like how you took a shower instead - too funny.

Hope you had a great day!

I enjoyed reading about your day, and that is a great lesson learned, I only have two kids and the house is often very messy with muddy footprints running through!

Many blessings.
