My Week

I have decided to join Dana over at Old Red barn Co. in sharing what we did over the week. Sounds like fun! It was a good week.

Here's what I have done this week...that I can remember:

  • It's my short work week, so I get to spend more time with the kiddos. Always something going on with them.

  • Still working on recovering from a virus I caught. I'm improving and am so much better than I was last week, but I still have some days that aren't as good.

  • Tuesday was my day off: kids go to daycare and I get to spend some time alone. What did I do? I went shopping at JoAnn's. It was so fun to do that without kids running around and asking when we could leave. Leave?! Why would you ever want to leave a fabric store? They just don't share my enthusiasm, so I went without them.

  • Housework, laundry, more housework, parenting, teaching, playing, cooked dinners...

  • Spent one-on-one time with my girl. We worked on counting, and colors in English and Spanish.

  • September consignment sales are coming up and I am so excited. I did some organizing and entered my items online.

  • Took the kids to the library. Read books about going to kindergarten.

  • Overheard funny conversations between my son and daughter.

  • Discovered that my daughter had drawn on our bathroom door with a bath tub crayon. We discovered this after she was asleep. The next day I took photos of her explaining what she drew. Then, explained to her that we don't draw on the house, we use paper. I made her clean it off.

  • She's actually pretty good at drawing at age 3. She didn't get that from me.

  • Got an email that I had won an online giveaway from MADE!

  • Went to work. Came home. Discovered later that a Preseason NFL game was on TV. I was one happy girl!

  • Cut out some patterns for future projects.

  • Today I will run errands with the kids. Play with them. Laundry, housework, shopping, and prepare my son for his first day of school on Monday.

  • Kindergarten here we come!


  1. Sounds like a busy week! And your weekend will be busy too getting ready for kindergarten!

    So, what did you buy at Joann's? I don't have one where I live so I get to live vicariously through you. :)

    1. I know, we have so much to do!
      I bought fabric for some coats/jackets I want to make for the kids. I have never done something like that before so I hope it works out well for me. I picked up corduroy, twill, knit ribbing, flannel and some notions. It's not the best JoAnn's I've ever been to but it works. It's also all the way on the opposite end of the county so I don't go there often, which is also good for my budget. *grin*

  2. Uninterrupted JoAnn shopping time is the absolute BEST!!
