Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today  ~  June 2, 2009

Outside my window... it's another cloudy Tuesday. We are supposed to get some rain today.

I am thinking... I have a lot to do today and I don't want to waste my morning on the computer.

I am thankful for... the stability that Rick and I provide for our children.

From the learning rooms... huh? It's SUMMER! It's all about fun now!

From the kitchen... I'm fixing some meals for later in the week when I'll be recovering from surgery.

I am wearing... my leopard and rose pjs and bare feet.

I am creating... an organized home in preparation of the next three weeks where I won't be able to do much housework.

I am praying ... for my mother-in-law's continued strength during her chemo and that she doesn't have the 7-10 day crash others have prepared her for; that our house sells fast because we found an 1800's Colonial home that we really, really want!

I am going... to go get my teeth cleaned this morning, go to the tanning salon, get the house cleaned and organized and meals in order.

I am reading... 1 Samuel and the book of Psalms.

I am hoping... God moves swiftly in the sale of our house and provides Rick with a job that provides him with a good income and fulfillment.

I am hearing... Finding Nemo on Brynne's t.v. and Eli stomping around upstairs chasing our cat.

Around the house... mulch needs to be spread.

One of my favorite things... has become taking care of my flowers and vegetables.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Today I am doing what I stated above, and trying to get the mulch spread on the hill. Tomorrow I am having some plastic surgery, so the rest of the week I will be bedridden and in a drug-induced sleep (I hope!).  Rick and Kyndal will be caring for me.  Dawson's at his dad's for the next two weeks, so it will certainly be quiet around here.  Kyndal will be babysitting our neighbor's kids.  I am hoping I will be recovered enough to go out for a while on Saturday night to meet up with a group of Rick's high school friends.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

My boys are a couple of gamers. I found them sitting on Dawson's top bunk last week with their handheld games racing on Mario Kart.  They are 7 years apart in age, but very compatible when it comes to this.

  1. It amazes me that you are getting breast implants. I have followed your blog admiring how much you love God and how frugal you are. It just seems so hypocritical.

  2. I guess I would just have to respond to the last comment by saying: Who is the one being hypocritical in judging me for something I am doing? As far as frugality, it was something we saved for and are not doing without in any other area for it to happen. As far as my love for God, I'm pretty sure I can still love the Lord and have larger breasts. It's a decision my husband and I made together, with great planning and consideration. I doubt the Lord loves me any less.

  3. congrats on finding a house is it in the area you want?

    good luck on your recovery!!!

  4. Good luck on your surgery! I hope your recovery goes well. Please let us all know you are okay once you get up and going again!

    I'd like to say something about Mrs. Anonymous up there but I will be nice and keep my mouth shut!!

    Again, good luck. And way to go on finding a house yall like too! I know you are so excited!!

    Talk to you soon!

  5. I'm with Anonymous on this one! It does seem hypocritical that you complain about needing to be a frugal mom, yet doing something vain is anything but!

  6. Another response to comments made ... I have never complained about needing to be a frugal mom. In fact, I don't even have to be a frugal mom. I choose to be one in order to save money to do other things we like to do, like going on vacations, buying wants, etc. To me being frugal is a game, not a necessity. I enjoy it.

    All I can say is that if anyone has a problem with the things I say on my blog, they can certainly stop following or reading it. I don't get on your blog and post negative comments. You don't know me; you don't know anything about me; yet you are judging me. How do any of you know that I am not a breast cancer survivor who is having reconstructive surgery? Perhaps I just haven't shared that. Or perhaps I am just excited about having larger breasts "just because". Either way, it's really not your concern.

    I still saved money at the grocery store this week. I still stuck to my budget so we could do fun things. I still saved money to go towards our vacation this summer. We are still debt free except for our mortgage. I still bargain shopped for some new clothes yesterday. And I'll probably hit some garage sales this week.

    Like I said, if I offend you so terribly, stop reading my blog. One thing you will always get from me is authenticity .. both good and bad. Some days I'm up, some days I'm down. Some days I'm sweet and loving, some days I'm a miserable person to live with or be around. But you will always get the real me. I've never considered myself a "Simple Woman". In fact, I'm quite the opposite. But I like doing the daybook because it keeps me journaling. I guess I'm just not as perfect as some of you.


Getting comments is the BEST part of blogging! Please leave me one, if you want to! Even if you don't have a blog, just leave me an "Anonymous" comment and sign your name in the body of the comment. I love to see who's reading all this craziness that comes from my mind! Have a great day!
