Thursday, March 23rd
Chuck's alarm went off at 4:30 this morning. Generally I sleep right through it. This morning I was wide awake. I tried to go back to sleep and ended up resting until 5:30. I hopped onto the computer to take care of some things. I entered receipts into Quicken. Update our everydollar budget, check out blogs and file. It seemed like I was doing this forever.
I headed to the kitchen a little before 7 and whipped up some muffins.
While they were baking I started to empty the dishwasher.
I was distracted by the sunrise. I wasn't out long as it was only 30*. Brrr
I finished putting the dishes away and checked the menu. I pulled some chicken out of the freezer and by this time the muffins were done.
It is now getting close to 8. I wake Megan up and then hit the shower. After I shower we sit down to eat and for some scripture reading.
When breakfast is finished Megan goes to take a shower. I fold and put away the laundry left from the day before.
A load of towels is thrown into the washer and housework is started. Megan is sent to make her bed and tidy her room. I make my bed and then do a quick tidy of the house. Once that is done it is time to clean the bathroom.
When that is complete I vacuum the house and then we take a break until lunch.
Lunch is served about 11:45. Leftover pizza and peas.
After lunch we sit down to play some games. Trouble and multiple hands of Go Fish.
I fold towels and Megan says Feet Feet is open. She will sometimes give me a "pedicure" which consist of rubbing lotion on my feet and sometimes she will paint my nails. A girl would be crazy to say no to a little pampering!
I watch TV and get on the computer for a few. Megan heads to her room to play. By 3 it has warmed up and we headed out for a walk/bike ride.
When we return I plant some pansies.
When that is finished I go in to marinade the chicken.
When I am finished I bring a book out to read while Megan plays.
It is still a little cool when you aren't moving. I walk to the garden and take a peek under the frost cover.
It is now almost 4:30. Megan hasn't had a snack and asked to make something. She makes a fruit kabob.
Megan watches a cartoon and I continue to read until it is time to start dinner. I get dinner going about 5:30. Chuck is suppose to be home at 6, but is running a little late.
Chuck is home about 6:20 and we sit down for dinner. He is on mandatory overtime and has been going in at 5:30 and trying to be home for dinner at 6.
Dinner is cleaned up by 7. We watch Wheel of Fortune and then play on the Wii.
At 8 we have devotions and Megan goes to her room to settle down. At 9 it is lights out for Megan and we are right behind her.
May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
