Today is the first day in a long while that I have had a chance to sit down and write. My class for April finished yesterday and I submitted the grades last night. Whiteybare also moved in officially this week, so that has added to the busy schedule of the household. But, I now have a 3 day break before my May class begins. Whatever shall I do with all this spare time.
Well, today I made strawberry-blueberry muffins for breakfast. Admittedly, they came from a mix, but Little Guy doesn't seem to mind too much. I'm looking forward to making actual strawberry muffins when our strawberries start producing this year. Provided, of course, that we get to them before the animals do. I also have plans for an Italian Beef pizza at some point, on homemade pizza dough.
The dough would obviously be made in our breadmaker (which has been a gift from the gods). And requires the leftovers from the Crockpot Italian beef Sandwiches I made this week. (Thanks to eatathome.com!) I had plans to do this whole homemade dinner thing, but our kitchen is a mess and I can't stand working in it. There isn't enough room or clean dishes, and I end up getting all tense inside. It's generally Big Guy's job to do the dishes but, like everything else, dishes fell to the wayside with all the other chores.
I am also going to work on the calendar and family room today and start getting our schedule back on track. I want to get this place back to a point where I don't want to set it on fire and run screaming into the night. Though, with a 4 year old hurricane running through the house, that may NEVER happen. I need to get done what I can today.
This weekend we're going out of town, though things aren't going to be nearly as pressed as I thought they were. Saturday we're heading up to Holland, MI to see my sister-in-law. Sunday is NOT Mother's Day. I say that only because I trule thought it was for the past month. It's a welcome surprise though because now I'm not trying to figure out how to fit everything in.
Monday starts my May class and I am teaching Fundamentals of English again. It will give me a good ten minutes at the end of class to write something while the class does their freewriting, so I hope to get back on the blogging track as well!
