You heard it here first!!!!   Leave a comment

Jeni and Rick were just having a friendly father-daughter sports discussion.   They bantered about the Brewers and Cubs since Jeni has abandoned the Brewers in favor of a certain young man’s baseball team!  And you know that a certain father in this household ALWAYS is against any invaders team!  🙂

I asked them about Bret Favre and Rick announced with great authority that the Packers are going to trade Favre.   Jeni had no comment.

Stay tuned!

Plans for the week   Leave a comment

It is Monday, and normally I have put more thought into the week by now.  I actually went back to bed this morning and slept, a very rare treat.  I have a feeling that I need to get serious about taking iron and the other vitamins that will help with anemia……. 

Here is what I hope to do and on Saturday I will look back and see what DID happen  🙂

Monday-  I am about to get breakfast together and we will discuss meals for the next 10 days as on Thursday we do our next big shopping.  I did get quite a  bit from SAMS last week so  pantry check will be in order and from there we will get our menus in line.

–clean the cottage

–do bookwork

–pick up house and clean floors

–drive Jeni’s car down to Sturgeon Bay to be fixed, pick up Rick at dealership where he is having his truck fixed again.  We will have some time to go for a hamburger and call it a “date”.  

–get music ready for worship team practice tomorrow

Tuesday —

–finish anything in cottage that did not get done/ mow lawn

–tackle office /computer area

–garden

Wed.

–pick up house and get meals ready for Rick’s lunch pail and supper

–gather all clothes and items that need to go to Goodwill

–go to Appleton to spend the night with Mandy who is in training there for the week.  Hit the Goodwill store.  We rarely go to Appleton, it is 125 miles away so this is a good excuse to do some much needed shopping.

–attend Wed, night service at a a church we have heard much about…..

Thurs. —

shop for a few things we need, go grocery shopping

head home

Friday-  Sammy day

— garden

–work on school room

–laundry, if it isn’t raining

–office work

I have another list of odd and end jobs that I am going to write down and pick away at during the week.  Hopefully we will it the pool or beach once or twice, but that always comes AFTER the work is done as a reward.

I know this week will fly by and that flips me out a little bit, the summer is going by so fast.

Jeni interviewed for a job as a nanny in Chicago.  We are waiting to hear if she got the job and praying that God will lead her in this decision.   This could be a good fit for her but not if it is not God’s will.

Mandy sold her first car last Friday.  She is enjoying her job and especially the people she works with.  I am so glad that she is seeing mature adults and making friends with new people.

Life is good

Blessed
