I haven't posted anything for quite a while now. I ended up helping my Dad at the pharmacy for a couple of weeks, and then I've been trying to get caught back up at home. At the end of the day, the last thing I thought about was blogging. To all of you who can juggle it all, I am impressed!
Today just so happens to be the last Wednesday of the month, which means today is What's Up Wednesday, which is the perfect time to jump back in and tell what we've been up to this month. I'm linking back up with Shay, Sheaffer and Mel.
What we're eating this week
Fajitas, Chili, and Fried rice. All easy and all very good! :)
What I'm reminiscing about
Nothing really. At the moment, I'm looking straight ahead.
What I'm loving
I'm loving all the sunshine and warm weather that we've already had this Spring. We've also been getting lots of rain, which is awesome as well. I don't want another dry summer like last year.
What we've been up to
Dan and I were in Vegas last weekend with my sister and brother in law, along with a couple of our best friends. 5 out of 8 of us have either just recently turned 40 or they are turning 40 within the next month. Definitely some oldies, but goodies! ;)
What I'm dreading
I'm dreading cleaning out my flower beds. It's gonna take some work, but it will be worth it. I'm hoping to get to them this weekend if the weather is nice.
What I'm working on
I feel like I've been running or gone for the last couple of weeks, and I'm ready to get back to my Spring cleaning. I started on my closet before we left for Vegas. I started moving my sweaters out of the way and bringing forward my skirts and capri's. I am hoping to finish up my closet, and then start on the linen closet as well as our kitchen pantry. I'm ready to have everything cleaned up, so we'll be ready to play outside whenever possible.
What I'm excited about
I'm excited to start camping. Dan brought the camper home last month and it's sitting in our driveway. He spent an afternoon cleaning it up, so we just have a couple more things we need to finish up, and then we'll be ready. Yesterday, I decided to go out and sit in it while I did my bible study. If that doesn't tell you I'm ready, I don't know what will. ;)
What I'm watching/reading
I started reading the Bachelor's Bargain by Catherine Palmer and it is really good so far. It's probably one of the better books I've read in a while.
I've also been reading and studying Beth Moore's bible study, Sacred Secrets.
As far as what I've been watching... I've been making Dan watch old Friends reruns with me. I DVR them, and then when we settle in for the night, we'll sit and watch a couple shows. I love unwinding at night with some laughs. It's the best way to end the day.
What I'm listening to
As I'm typing this, there is not a sound in the house, except me typing away on this keyboard.
What I'm wearing
This shows the struggle better than I could explain it myself. Everyday when getting dressed, you take a chance.
What I'm doing this weekend
I'm not sure yet. I don't have anything written down on the calendar. How nice is that! We may watch a softball game, if my niece is playing in town. Otherwise, we'll probably work on a couple projects around the house and enjoy the weekend at home.
What I'm looking forward to next month
I'm looking forward to a fun month of school for the kids. May always seems so fun. They have tons of field trips, lighter work loads, and the anticipation that summer break is almost here. It just seems fun. It's bittersweet for me this year, because Gracie will graduate from 8th grade, and be moving on up to the High School. Cue the tears! :( It gives me a bit of a stomach ache, but we'll take this one day at a time. Nothing else to do, right?!
What else is new
He was born last week and his Mama, (Jenny cow) didn't make it, so he's being bottle fed. He's such a sweet little guy, and it breaks our hearts that he doesn't have a Mama. My mom is planning on just letting him wander around in her yard this summer. The only problem is, we are all going to get attached and at some point he's going to grow up into a very big bull that she'll have to sell. Until then, he'll be very loved.
If you aren't following me on Snapchat or Instagram, you should. My username is Jenny Claridge. And if you're only into blogging, well make sure and leave a comment saying hello. I always love meeting and talking with fellow bloggers.
Have the best week!
