& fellow warrior parents. It's a very chilly 7 below zero in my backyard this morning; that bone chilling dark when you can hear every crunch with your footsteps. Sally had to do her duty & you'd never seen a dog in & out quite so quickly as our 13 y/o Sally. is brewed & my day is starting; a couple of loads of laundry are ready to throw in - just waiting for a healthy body to carry them downstairs for me (I supposed 3 a.m. is asking a bit much)l. I can't choose between making a beef stew or a broccoli cheese soup for dinner tonight. All I know is that today is soup/stew kind of weather. Cleaning lady is due in today & my only other chore is to sort out all the mail that husband has been piling in his office rather than looking through it & handing it to me. Makes it a bit hard to stay on top of bill paying & where we stand. I'm thinking a tatoo won't be able to remind him - branding may help. What are your thoughts? And of course, you must always plan in that ever so important nap time. My very favorite hobby - right up there with golf, piano & painting!. Enjoy your Wednesday - here's to a calm & uneventful day. Homework completed with-o meltdowns, meals magically appearing on dinner tables on time & bed time with-o a fuss. Don' t you love living in my little world?
