For Today...

Outside my window... it was a beautiful fine day. Perfect weather for school holidays which started today for two weeks.

I am thinking... about what school to send Kyle to next year. I don't think that there is going to be an easy answer. I thought I had an ideal school picked out but now I am not so sure. I just don't want him to get lost in the classroom environment and not be able to reach his true potential.

I am thankful for... having nearly all my Christmas presents organized for this year. Just have to get Daryl's present. I know what to buy him, just a matter of buying it. Thank goodness for lay-by and being able to pay things off instead of having to pay out money all in one go. We were lucky enough to get a bargain at Target. Zac has been wanting a DS so he can play his beloved wrestling on it. We were looking at the DS's in Target and they happened to have the limited edition Guitar Hero DS package on special. It was reduced from $256.00 to $199.98. We thought we would buy that one as it was a great price to come bundled considering the console on its own sells for $199.00. We got an extra bonus at the checkout when we went to buy the DS to find that it scanned for $139.91. Some much needed dollars saved which allowed extra money to buy the two DVD's Zac also wanted at $8.99 each. Gotta love that. Not often I am able to pick up an bonus bargain like that and especially something that Zac has wanted for a while.

From the kitchen... now that the weather is really warming up more and more and it is getting so humid and hot and muggy I need to change over to more summer type recipes. Just makes it awkward when my males are not ones to eat salad.

I am wearing... a navy and white striped top and denim capris.

I am reading... Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps To Living At Your Full Potential by Joel Osteen.

I am hoping... that Daryl manages to get his essay written for uni and not struggling to still work on it and get it sent at the very last minutte. He is a great procrastinator and actually admits to being a just in time learner. LOL....

I am creating... some water play activities for Kyle and he is loving it.

I am praying... that Daryl is able to quit smoking permanently. He just isn't able to give up his dependency just yet.

Around the house... I am most grateful that the delivery man delivered a brand new ironing board to me last week. So good to be able to catch up on Mt Washmore that had been waiting to be ironed.

One of my favourite things... time out for myself to sit in peace and quiet.

A few plans for the rest of the week... to collect and put together a desk we have ordered and paid for to put in Kyle's bedroom. Was going to try and get the boys haircuts on Tuesday but Zac got rung up and invited to the movies so that will have to wait until another day now. It is not easy to get my boys to the hairdressers and get their hair cut at the best of times. It is my birthday on Thursday. As for the rest of the week there are always plenty of chores to be done and trips into the city to be made.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...


Kyle was so tired while trying to eat his dinner that he fall asleep in his chair. Most unusual for him.
