Outside my window… it’s sunny this morning, but the snow on the ground reminds me that it’s not quite spring.

I am thinking… about whether ancient Egypt is a good place to start our history study this fall.

I am thankful for… my husband/IT staff. Seriously, I’m convinced that God put us together because He knew that Aaron would help keep me sane!

From the learning rooms… I’m getting my book list for next year put together and looking for a good world history timeline for my wall. That’s turning out to be harder than you’d think. (And if you’re on the market for a planner, be sure to click the box at the bottom of this post. This is the last week of the pre-release sale for my favorite planners!)

From the kitchen… plans are in place for an “angry peeps” cake. It should be a fun little project.

I am wearing… black pants, black shoes, and a black “got yarn?” t-shirt.

I am creating… a red sweater that (hopefully) will fit me!

I am going… to have to go to the grocery store for milk and a few odds and ends this week. Unless of course, I have my IT staff stop by the store for me…

I am reading… Unglued. I just finished Sparkly Green Earrings. If you’re a mom and you need a laugh, then Sparkly Green Earrings won’t disappoint! I loved the part where she talked about those nights with a newborn and how difficult that sleep deprivation really is. When I read the paragraph that mentioned thinking about just getting in the car and driving somewhere to get some sleep, I gasped. The thought going through my head was, “I wasn’t the only one?” Normal, well-rested Teish sees the wisdom in Aaron sleeping on the couch because he had to drive a couple of hours the next morning. Crazy, hormonal, new-mom Teish was so out of her mind tired, that she was rather miffed (livid) that he got to sleep. I entertained the fantasy of going somewhere else to sleep and leaving Aaron to deal with the fussy baby on his own. (I’m usually nicer than that, really!)

I am hoping… that the snow on the ground will melt this week. Well I can hope can’t I?

I am hearing… little feet padding around upstairs. Actually, the kids’ feet aren’t so little anymore. How do their feet grow so fast?

Around the house… I’ve been working on a spring organization project in our dining/school room. The addition of another bookshelf and filing cabinet helped.

One of my favorite things… is filling fountain pens. There is just something about opening the bottle of ink and filling the pen that I enjoy. I even like the temporary ink stains on my fingers!

A few plans for the rest of the week: studying with the kids, writing, and laundry of course
