Good Morning…..Happy Monday!   I am hoping life is starting to settle down for us.  Things are starting to get better and hope they continue to improve.   I am trying to get caught up at home and work as that makes me feel so much better.   I did work for about 7.5 hours on Sunday at the office and accomplished alot.  So things aren’t so bad when I came in this morning.  

Hubby was great while I was at work on Sunday and ran some errands for me and took the dog to be groomed.  I really appreciated that!   We didn’t get around to putting up our Christmas three this weekend, which we always do right after Thanksgiving.  I am sure we will get to it this weekend.   We had a very quiet Thanksgiving, which was very much needed.  Hubby is feeling good since getting out of the hospital and returned to work today.  He still has to see a hematologist to investigate why he got the blood clot. 

My parents came and helped out alot when hubby was in the hospital.  Bless my mother, she got me pretty caught up with laundry.  I am so far staying on top of it.  Hopefully I can keep that up. 

We went to the movie Flushed Away on Saturday night.  It was alot of fun.  We rarely get to the movies so it was a real treat.  Tommy loved it!   I am working all this week and then this weekend a childhood girlfriend is coming into town and I hope to get time to visit with her.   Friday night I am hoping to go to movie night at a friends house as well.   Otherwise our weekend is pretty quiet.  

I have been revising my weekly schedule at home again and have decided that I really like the week at a glance format so below you will see the draft of the new Weekly Schedule I will be testing out until the end of the year.   I am hoping to take some time off in January so I want to keep caught up around the house so that the time I take off can be to do things I want.  

I have been reading a number of website about living plain and simple.  I am so intrigued by the lifestyle.  It must be amazing to live off the land and home school your children.  I found a few people who have their own homestead, very interesting.  I was always interested in the hutterites back home so it still seems to interest me.  Maybe I am just dreaming of a simpler life!
