Today was a "full day" for me -- well, here lately anyways! I woke up early this morning by Chris getting ready for work. Usually I'm able to fall back asleep pretty easily, but today was different. That's okay though, I needed to get started on some projects!
I went to Learning Safari to get started on ordering supplies for the new school year -- yay! I just love the fresh start of a new school year - always have! Unfortunately, I'll be missing the first couple of weeks of this one, but it's okay, I LOVE the reason I'm missing it even more! ;) Mary & I sat down together and thought of things we needed to replenish and then things that we wanted to add. I'm going to try real hard this year to keep things on a needs-only basis!! (I may have had a little trouble with that last year... oops!)
Our school is transferring to the Online Assessment this year -- which I love! I think I'm going to enjoy using a computer and doing everything digitally rather than have so much paperwork to organize manually. I want one of these to help write anecdotals and keep from having to write them and then type them in the computer:
It is going to be added to my teacher "wish list" that I have going in my head... :)
Speaking of school, I need to get busy making copies of my newsletter and send it out to the kids...
After that, I went and ate lunch at MaMa & Pop's again. Today she had roast beef with mashed potatoes, green beans, butter beans, and eggplant casserole. So yummy! I had never had eggplan casserole, and am not one for trying new foods, but she asked me to and I actually didn't think it was all that bad! Tasted sort of like squash.. The girls were sweet as usual. Mollie wasn't as fussy today which was a good thing. She didn't want me to hold her today, though -- she loves her Uncle Chris though! I can't blame her... so do I! :)
I left there and was going to go straight to Wal-Mart. I have to pass by our house on the way and when I did, I saw my honey's truck in the driveway. I, of course, had to turn around and stop to see him! Even though I had just seen him at MaMa & Pop's I had to get in at least one more sweet kiss! I can't ever get enough of that boy! (Lucy, I pray every night that you find a man to love as much as I love your daddy!)
I then left and continued on to Wal-Mart to get Lucy a play-gym for tummy time on the floor. I was pretty ecstatic that it only cost $25 because I was thinking it was going to be more like $40!! Yay for pleasant surprises! I didn't realize that the one I bought also sings... I plopped it down in the seat beside me in the car and the thing just started playing songs and singing -- I smiled and thought about how much Lucy is going to love hearing it sing when she bats at it.
I came home and worked on cleaning her toys. That was the last thing I had to do for her room. We have so many toys that came from other families/children that I wanted them to be free of germs for when she plays with them. So, I took them outside on a beach towel in the sun and sprayed them with Febreze. Hopefully that will do the trick!
Now I am resting for the rest of the afternoon. I don't have to cook dinner tonight -- Chris is having leftover pork chops! :) I love left-over nights!
