Happy Homemaker Monday
Good morning, or almost afternoon. I've been so busy today. I got Ben up, dressed, fed, and took him to school. Upon waking up two little girls in my house had wet their beds and I already had laundry in the washer and dryer. Needless to say, I've been a laundry fool today, but I'm almost done until tonight and all the beds but Rylie's are made now.
As I look outside my window:::
It's a dark and gloomy day, but the rest of the week looks beautiful.
Right now I am:::
Sitting on the couch with my feet up, eating crackers and cheese. I love the Ritz garden veggie crackers and with little slices of aged cheddar cheese on top, they are so delicious!
Thinking and pondering:::
Our future and what it holds for us.

What I am creating:::
I haven't been working on anything but I really want to finish up my blanket.
My simple pleasure:::
Checking things off of my to do list. I'm not easily motivated, but once I start getting things done from my to do list, I have a hard time stopping.
It's the hardest thing for me to do, but I have to make myself. Keep up on the house! It never gets bad if you keep up on it.
Looking around the house:::
There are a couple dishes in the sink to be washed. There is a load of laundry in the dryer (mostly just Rylie's bedding) and Rylie's bed needs to be made but other than that the house is pretty clean. Scotland is asleep in her swing, Rylie (who isn't feeling good) is sleeping on the love seat, and Sydney is laying in the big chair watching Adventure Time on her iPad.
From the camera:::
Yesterday, Shawn took the kids and I on a wonderful drive in the country, which is one of my favorite things to do.
