Tidbit Tuesday

Just another unedited/sloppy version of the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…

The weather forecasters say we are in for 3 – 5 inches of snow today and it has started coming down already. Puts me in the mood for some chicken soup. I’m going to try a new recipe because I want to use up some frozen spinach and canned beans that have been hanging around for awhile. Hopefully it will turn out okay.

Went to the boy’s school last night for a Mardi Gras celebration. It was an interesting evening. They provided dinner, drinks and King Cake which is really nice for the parents who are coming straight from work. There was face painting, mask making, tons of beads and coins and a band. The saxophone/bass player is a student at the school.  Not as many people as I had thought there might be which was nice. At his old school some of the events were so crowded that you couldn’t sit down and enjoy them.

I’m trying to memorize some lines for a skit I’m participating in. Our church puts on some kind of performance during Lent and I was asked to participate. I was led to believe it was a small part but I guess my version of small isn’t the same as the director’s. I need to come up with a costume as well.  It should be an interesting experience.

I did a good job of making progress last week and I’m hoping to keep it up again this week. I’ve made my step goal everyday but I’m not getting enough sleep. I’m getting to bed on time but waking up and having trouble getting back to sleep. I’ve started looking into getting glasses and I’ve been keeping the kitchen clean. Small steps done consistently will get me where I want to go.

After much input and discussion, we have chosen a color for the grout and hopefully the bathroom tile will get finished this week. Then it’s just getting glass for the shower stall made and installed, getting the shower fixtures set in, and  putting the toilet, tub and vanity in place and then the bathroom will be ready for use.  Well, it will be ready after we get the door stained and hung. Then it will be on to the bedroom closets, windows and doors. We might get into the master suite by this summer.

Until next time, I hope you  have a great day.
