Good morning friends!
I awoke early with dh, haven't done that in about two weeks. I walked him out & we found a frightened dog hiding under his truck, but it took off before we could get close.
I have a 9x13 pan of Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oatmeal in the oven, because today is the first day of school!! And because I figure my children could use a warm breakfast.
Ds14 shampooed the living room, & hallway carpets, plus couches & recliner because the puppies have been peeing all over them since they arrived (well they both got the big couch Monday which was the last straw). He also vacuumed first. Hooray! The floors are clean & you can’t smell urine anymore!! Plus they all seem dry!
No word yet on when I get to go have my cancer surgery; when I called yesterday afternoon my case manager said the Drs & radiologists had requested the images from my previous mammograms, and she didn't know if those had been sent yet. So I’m to call again if I haven't heard from them by 3pm. Waiting is soooo hard with this!
I must keep busy, so will go to library to print off the certificate showing that I’ve watched the online school district training. I’ll check out a few books too.
I need to find a notebook & pen to be ready for my all-day Substitute training tomorrow. I’d almost forgotten about it.
I may watch a movie my friend lent us, called 17 Miracles. I can knit on washcloths while it plays-will have to watch it on my computer as kids have broken the DVD player.
My back hurt soo bad when I woke up!! I’m going to use dh’s vibrating massager on it to see if it will help-as long as I can reach that spot.
I’ll have my girls help sort their mountain of dirty clothes this morning before school so I can at least get their shirts washed. They are in need of clean hot-weather clothes, especially with the schools’ cooing systems not running at peak (as mentioned by the teachers.
It is to be clear, sunny, and in low 90’s today. Its to be the same weather for next 10 days.
So it's Great weather for our church’s End of Summer swim party-my girls are super excited. I need to dig out my black & swim suit—first time this summer that I’ve needed one.
Dinner will be provided at swim party, I just need to decide if I’m making a salad or dessert and get it compiled.
I pray that the warm weather continues. I picked 10 green beans yesterday along with my usual 3-4 summer squashes. I need to try to grate some zucchini today; if my arm holds up then I can get most of the fresher ones grated-not sure what to do with the older ones, maybe my friend will want them for her turkeys.
Today I’m thankful to have some time alone with kids going back to school.
