- Cabin Fever. I feel like I have cabin fever... I want/need to get out and do something... but i'm not sure exactly what and where. The temperatures have been lower which is a treat and makes it a much better time to get out! I think perhaps tomorrow i'll drag the kids out for a while if the weather is ok. I need to return something to Chapters, so maybe we'll hit the bookstore and just bum around for that area for a few hours.
Ripley's Aquarium Savings Goal. I've hit my goal of $405.00 (Yay me!!) to purchase the bus tickets for our Toronto bus trip! Once that hits my bank account from PP i'll be able to purchase the tickets for August! I think it's going to be lots of fun and the younger girls are especially excited to go!
- Child #1's job. It's going awesome. They love him. He works hard and it's nice to have him doing something productive and earning his own money. He's currently still in training but his hours will pick up next week to FT hours which will be nice! He's such a good kid, i'm really proud of him! xox
- Grocery Shopping. I had to pick up something from WM so decided to go to the Super WalMart to do my grocery shopping this week. BIG mistake. I hate changing my routine and found WM was absolutely NOT cheaper than No Frills... if anything it was more of a pain to find everything and the selection wasn't nearly as good. I ended up spending $180.00 and am wondering if I even bought enough to get us through the week. Next week i'm sticking to my routine. It threw me totally off and after spending 2 hours grocery shopping with an 8 year old who "wants/needs" a lot, next time i'll go alone. lol!
- I want my yard done. Yesterday. It's been almost 2 weeks with absolutely no progress over the last week. I want to purchase a table & chair set for the backyard while I can still find one affordably, and be able to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather with the kids. Right now that's impossible because the backyard is a disaster. The front yard looks pretty good, but it's still pretty bare. I cannot wait to see it completed so I can relax and just enjoy it. The girls don't even want to play out back right now, so having it done sooner than later would be a huge blessing.
And... those are my "Five Things Friday". I'm off now to do something productive... what that is, I have no idea as i've already done the housework. Oh well, have a great Friday!!
What are your "Five Things Friday"?
