Miscellany on Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

I've linked up today with Carissa over at Lowercase Letters for her Miscellany on Monday. It's time for me to jump in with both feet and have a little blog-fun.

If you're not into the fluff n' stuff of life, now is your chance to move along to something a bit more substantial. You're about to enter my world of miscellaneous.

You've been warned.

1) I'm an awful caretaker. Paul has been suffering from allergies this week somethin' awful. The first couple of days I kindly passed the Kleenex and Clariton, and kept his iced tea glass filled to the brim. By day six, I'm starting to sound like a rehab nurse/drill instructor. "Blow your nose. Did you take your medicine? Are you whining? Suck it up, wimp boy!"

2) Me and Grace and Samuel, cuddled up on my bed and finished reading "Because of Winn-Dixie". What a precious book. Tomorrow night we begin reading Samuel's book choice: "Raising Dragons" by his favorite author Bryan Davis. I absolutely LOVE reading to my littlest ones.

3) My backyard plants and lawn are dying a quick summer death. I was thrilled to discover a planter with beautiful flowers still alive. Recently, one of my children's friends came over and while playing in our yard became a sunflower-serial killer. I'm trying not to hold a grudge against this child. I'm failing.

4) It's time once again to play that summertime game my husband and I like to call, "Who messed with the thermostat?" Paul is winning - it's a miserable 82 degrees in here right now. Time to go make my move...

I laughed at the first one. I do that pretty well, except for Bob. I start off well but a few days into a cold things go downhill!

Enjoyed this.

I am the same way with my hubby.. The sad thing is, he's so sweet to me when I feel the slightest bit of sickness...

It never ceases to amaze me that when we moms get sick, we suck it up and carry on as if nothing is wrong. But when our husbands get sick, stop the world. Mine has a way of making us all know he's not feeling well, without even really saying anything, and yes, I am constantly nagging him about what he should do to get better!

Sorry about your plants and flowers.

We play the thermostat game in the car. It's hilarious.

Happy Monday!

Excited to meet you! love your blog too... I'm a teacher and I love that you read those chapter books with your kids!! Winn-Dixie is great... the author of Lightning Theif has a new series out called Red Pyramid. I wanna check that out soon! Happy Monday!

You lasted longer as a caretaker than I usually do! Good for you! Found your blog through Misc. Mondays. Have a great week!

I do not think I would want to play who messed up the thermostat because 82 degrees would be horrible! AND when you move to TN we have AWFUL (you've been warned!! :) humidity!! Of course, that wouldn't make me move but it does make the end of July & beginning of August absolutely horrible and makes it so you stay inside at all costs! :)
