The Daily Grind ~ 9/19/12

On this special day, four years ago, I lost the love of my life, Roger. He was "my best guy," a loving father and grandfather, a loyal friend and an extraordinary teacher for over 30 years. His smile was endearing and his heart was "10 sizes too big!!! "

So many of you were with me in body and spirit at that time. I kept a printed memory page of all the heartfelt messages you sent. Thank for for your sustaining friendships, which are still greatly appreciated.

Hug those you love today, as all of us know how precious and fleeting life can be. This is the most difficult week of the year, as on the 13th we celebrated the first year without my mom, and now today, Roger. Caroline

Christy good luck today..

I hope everyone is okay after the horrible storms that rolled acrossed the east coast last night.. the Today Show is reporting it was really bad last night...


Today so much to do and I'm still a bit exhausted from yesterday but it must be done:

DH up and out the door
make bed
make lunches x 3
DS16 up for mtg
(he is slow to start today after soccer for the past 2 nights and meetings the past 2 mornings, who knows what tonight after school brings, could be a pre-homecoming activity)
get myself ready for day
load of towels
DS11 up and ready for school
DS16 to school for mtg
home to once over house (DH picked up for me last night to help out)
DS11 to school
town for small list of stops
(MUST use coupons at JoAnn's thank you for the small boat load of 50% off coupons)
home for small nap, I can hope paid bills instead
template Senior bag
scrapbook 6 pages (MUST)
touch base w/ PJ today (she has a mtg for her new job on campus!!! So proud of her)
pick up DS11 from school
homework/snack
template sectional gift bag for soccer team
pick up DS16 from soccer/check on other possible events
dinner

sent out email requests w/ DS16 re: campus visits over fall break


So much to do and so little time..but if I get this done tomorrow, I can have a free day on Thursday to scrap the day away and enjoy the day without errands..

I hope everyone has a great day and enjoy..

I'm trashed. Slept like garbage and they messed up my coffee this morning. Seriously? It's not rocket science!

Thinking I'm leaving early.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Becky,
Pack a hat, gloves, and scarf for safety sake!!! When Grams comes up from N. Ft. Myers, I always deck her out with a new set of the above.. .She just laughs....

I did find an awesome new set of the above today... I think I'm going to run back out and get them this weekend..but I was on a mission today for needed supplies so I did not deviate from my list...

Happy Birthday K~

so today went to He** in a hand basket.......

Eric home sick stomach ache (most of it is self made with the fighting over homework call in to teacher this pm)
Levi off to school for me to get a call from the nurse. He and another collided in gym and he's bleeding from the top of his head. He made it through part of the day. I ran and got him at 11:30.

did get to walmart cause he wanted to "coffee" mugs

call into the spec ed head here we go again........ hopefully since I've never called her (her son is in Levi's class so I know her) with and issue it will kick start the issue.

off to get a drink going to be a LONG night
