Happy Homemaker Monday — uh, Sunday! Head on over to Diary of a SAHM every Monday to read more!
As I look outside my window::: I see the new driveway! I should be able to drive on it in a few days :)
Right now I am::: Sitting in my favorite chair, with the air conditioner going and the fan blowing on me! (I can’t stand to be hot when I’m inside!)
Thinking and pondering::: Today’s Jennah’s 18th bday – so thinking about tonight and still planning for her grad party next week. Pondering a LOT about finances and how to increase my cash flow ASAP.
On my bedside table::: Incense, green tea with mango on ice, Joyce Meyer cd’s, Kindle.
On my tv this week (I watch all my shows online! Here are the ones I am looking forward to most this week)
