I've been a busy bee and just haven't had the time or desire to blog the last several days. Keeping my priorities in line has been a priority of mine lately. :)
There are those who believe that a SAHM/SAHW sits around all day twiddling her thumbs. I am definitely one who would prove that theory wrong. There's never a dull moment in my life. Here's what I've been up to the last several days:
attending funerals for two of our church members
organizing and preparing food for funerals
preparing our tax return
dentist appointments for three of the children
planning a field trip for our local homeschool group
visiting the library
scheduling achievement tests
Today I spent the morning in the classroom and the afternoon in the dentist's chair. It's been over a month since I started on this perilous journey, and I'm so glad that my dental work is now complete. I was a brave girl and opted to not have my mouth numbed for the procedure. I would rather endure a couple of moments of pain than have a numb mouth for the rest of the day. It wasn't bad at all. Thankfully my mouth is happy once again. My checkbook, on the other hand, is now experiencing severe pain. Hopefully we'll be reimbursed by our health savings account in a couple of weeks. Those of you who have dental insurance, count your blessings!
Before I left for the dentist's office I prepared a chicken for the oven and left the cooking instructions for Mr. C. When I got back home, all I had to do was prepare a vegetable and some rice. While the rice was cooking I whipped up a batch of The Butler's Chocolate Chip Cookies. I decided to get a little arm exercise and used a good old spoon to stir the dough instead of letting my KitchenAid do all the work for me. I think it really does make a difference when the dough is stirred by hand. At least, to me, the cookies taste better.:)
I restocked my baking staples while the cookies were in the oven. It would never do to run out of cookie-making ingredients! I purchased these Tupperware containers last year. They were quite pricey (even on eBay), but they have been worth every penny. The containers are airtight and stack so nicely in the cabinet. I keep a measuring scoop in each one so that I don't have to fumble in a drawer every time I need an ingredient.
With such full days, no wonder blogging has taken a back seat! I'm sure that I'm not the only one who wonders if the days could possibly fly by any faster. It seems like Christmas was just a few days ago, yet March is quickly approaching. I'm ready for a little vacation, and I think I just might get one soon! I hope all of you have a productive week. :)
