Monday Morning

It’s a beautiful Monday morning. Of course, it’ll get as hot as blazes later, but for now it’s a great morning. I am waiting for babies to get up. I want them to watch how I make this morning’s breakfast. I think they will find it pretty awesome.

Today’s agenda? Breakfast, clean up the house. That’s about it. The yard sale is done, so there’s not a huge task in front of me, anymore. Pretty much what is in the house stays in the house.

I might do some rearranging this week. The beautiful t.v. I was once so proud of and struggled to get for myself back in early 2011 is being moved downstairs. We don’t need it, we don’t watch it. There’s better things to do.

Last year, when my eldest was in kindergarten, they sent home P.E. challenges every month. The one I remember most is the television challenge. That was an easy one for him to do, that month. He had to watch an hour or less of t.v. a day. He got a sticker on every day of the month – my boys (and nan and I) just don’t watch t.v. The only time he might go over is if we get a movie to watch and it’s typically an hour and a half long.

Now, the cute black Visio that takes up a huge spot on my wall won’t even be upstairs! That room will be for books. And we all know I love books! I’ve given up my Nook and have gone back to paperbacks, so my collection will grow again.

I think I hear the boys stirring. Time to show them how mommy makes today’s breakfast!

Thank you for listening,

We had french toast for breakfast. I got up a little bit easier, this morning. Both mornings, I got up at 6:30 a.m., it was more a matter of if I enjoyed it or not. This morning, it got close to enjoyment. Pro’lly because I knew I had promised French Toast. My 5 year-old actually said, “Mommy, you make the best breakfastes.” I beamed!

I have learned that, starting a sink of hot soapy water before you start cooking is the best way to keep the kitchen clean. You wash the dishes as you go and no mess later. Besides, there were not a lot of dishes, so I wouldn’t have started the dishwasher and then we’d be pickled when we went to eat dinner and didn’t have enough dishes. So, washing them as the morning goes seems to be the best course of action.

Lunch was fun. We were all working and the boys were restless. I said, “Let me take them to Maverick. They are doing the outside bar-b-que today” and so I did. So, lunch was fun. 🙂 Picnic in the Rendezvous with hotdogs!

The day is wasting. Time to get off the computer. I’m not supposed to be on it until 8 p.m., anyway. However, I haven’t really been doing that, either. We’ve been busy! Tonight is spaghetti and Bruscetta (the way I was taught to make it in Italy, not the “Americanized” version!)

Thank you for listening,
