Ten things I did today

This was a particularly long week at Four Gables. Life is moving at lightning pace, and I am doing my best to keep up. Thankfully, though its cold outside, the sun is shining brighter each day. This gives me lots of hope that sooner or later, spring will take hold for good, and I can sit with Christine by my pool while we do the vitally important job of teaching our children (drum roll) how to play Marco Polo. Until then here is a quick peek at my day today, which resembled most of my days of late.

#10- finished grading and packaging up for shipment, all my kids work for third quarter. Remember that is one Sophomore in High School,, a seventh grader, a fifth grader, a third grader, a second grader, and a first grader.And I don't have an administrator. Phew!

#9- Got my hair colored. Amazing what that will do for my outlook on life. Thank you Laura and Designers Edge Salon!

#8- Attended a fish fry at our church put on by the Knights of Columbus and the boy scouts.It was really good food, and even better since I didn't have to cook it.Score!

#7- Read about the Pope for approximately one hour. Its no use, I am pretty much obsessed with him at this point. I spend at least an hour each day getting my hands on anything and everything I can about him so I can figure out who this man is and where he is taking the church.

#6- Got my kids ready for their second track practice. Before you think this is lame- that entails a dozen socks, shoes, feet, sweat pants, sweat shirts, and water.

#5- I went to Mass. Cause if I didn't do that, I wouldn't be able to do the rest of it all. At least not without screaming and cursing my way through it all.

#4-Made the stations of the cross with Sarah, John-Paul, and a very wriggly Sophia Grace.

#3-Took a lovely hot bath, complete with bubbles.

#2-Read a chapter of the Red Badge of Courage to Michael and Thomas.

#1- I blogged, for all of my wonderful readers out there, so you wouldn't miss me too much!

( P.S. This evenings activities may include, a movie, bumper pool( the balls and cues have arrived and we are all warming up our game), and maybe some cards. 


  1. I've figured it out... you have more hours in your day don't you? Don't you???

  2. SO glad to know someone else out there is as obsessed with our fantastic new pope as I am! I've become a fanatic, doing just as you in scouring the Internet, newspapers, etc.. to devour anything I can on him. I can't get enough of him. :D

  3. Snow, Ellie. Snow. Even the sunshine can not keep me from lamenting. Snow. Those pool days seem so very far away...
