Happy Homemaker Monday

I'm super late, but today has been super busy.  I'm trying to recover from a stomach bug and trying to get my house back in order, while getting into our new groove.

As I look outside my window:::
The sun is going down.  It's quite warm and beautiful outside.  I think it got to 86 today.

Right now I am::: 
Sitting on the couch, snuggling with Scotland and typing away.

Thinking and pondering:::
How long is it going to take me to get my house in order...

On my bedside table:::
Break Out by Joel Osteen
Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayham, and other things that Happened by Allie Brosh
A water bottle and my tv and cable remotes

On my tv tonight:::
After typing this up, I realized that the amount of "reality tv" I'm watching right now is insane and ridiculous.  I can't help that I like the trashy stuff.  It's totally my guilty pleasure.

What I am creating:::
I haven't been working on anything but I really do need to finish my mood blanket that is almost done.

My simple pleasure:::
A clean house.  I know it may sound crazy, but I can't function with a mess around me.

Homemaking tips::: 
At this moment, I've got nothing...

Looking around the house:::
It's total chaos!  The big kids are all in the living room watching Adventure Time on their iPads, Scotland is asleep snuggled against my leg on the couch, clean socks are thrown on the floor (by one of the kids) in need of finding their mates and my couch pillows are all thrown on the floor.  Things that will all be taken care of once they crazy monsters go to bed.
From the camera:::
My handsome son with his teacher (whom I absolutely LOVE) at his first ever school music program.

Prayer List:::
My mother-in-law and her siblings as they prepare for the loss of their sister Bernie, and Bernie herself.  She's not doing well at all and is in hospice care.

Bible verse, Devotional:::
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. ~ Psalm 34:18

Ben is just sooooo cute, he has the sweetest smile :)
