Tuesday Update: School Year in Progress
This week has stayed PRETTY busy. We are trying to replace a hot water heater that started leaking over the weekend. We are without hot water in half of the house, leaving us with one shower to share. It’s taken some reorganization, but we’re still doing okay with it so far. I still have all the necessities.
Trying some things with my hair to see how long I can tolerate the “growing out” phase. Fine hair that tends to wave in the humidity is not humoring me this week. I’ve tried a gazillion tricks and am still having to curl or straighten it a few times a day. Not sure where to go from here. If it was pretty waves, I’d be fine, but we are talking more the Hollie Hobbie fuzz in every imaginable uncontrolled, uneven sort of mess. I look like Cinderella, after the housework, and before the magic. It’s not pretty.
Perhaps I just need to stay in the A/C and stop fighting with the pool and garden. (Appealing. Also NOT gonna happen my dear friend).
Supper Adventures: I made Chicken Tetrazilli last night. The Hub LOVED it. He thought I could cook there for a second or two.
Supper Tonight: Taco Lasagna from the new church cookbook. I actually combined two recipes and think one or the other may have been best…but it’s okay. The kids make there own conglomeration because they never like ours…I’m just learning to reserve some non-casseroled meat and keep them happy. We had corn from our garden…it’s good, but the daughter almost bit into a deeply buried worm…not sure she’ll ever be the same.
Chasing pool supplies all over the place, not managing the pool that well, and overall, it’s a pain right now. The rain is making it SO hard. It’s making me angry I’m so tired of dealing with it this year…not enough swim weather to justify it.
I still feel SO busy this year, even with the kids back in school…so much on my to-do, or “behind in” list I’m not sitting down all day hardly. Trying to get meals ready and we’re still not all here at the same time yet. Frustrating to me.
“Peace, peace, but there is no peace!” LOL
Well, the laundry IS caught up. Dishes ARE caught up. The gnat problem IS better (pine sol in the drains, a T. a few times a day seemed to really help…as well as the swat method).
Well, off to try to record a news try-out with the boy.
All in all, order is coming, but it’s painfully slow!
