Outside my window… it’s shaping up to be a very warm day.

I am thinking… about the huge amount of laundry that I’ll probably be doing this week!

I am thankful for… clean, cold water to drink.

From the kitchen… pina colada cupcakes yesterday. They were delicious!

I am wearing… the Bass Pro Shops t-shirt that my IT staff gave me a few years back.

I am creating… still working on the second sleeve to a sweater that’s been in-progress for a year and a half.

I am going… to be doing the “switching to underwear cold turkey” potty training method this week. Camo is in underwear today. Three other pairs are currently in the washing machine and it’s only 11:30 AM. There is plastic covering his favorite chair and my living room carpet. It’s going to be an interesting day (probably an interesting week, but I’m trying to think positive!).

I am reading… occasionally when I get snatches of time and free hands!

I am hoping… that this will finally make using the potty “click” for Camo. I may have been through this a couple of times, but I’m not the one to get potty training advice from. I still haven’t figured out what works!

I am hearing… the kiddos playing in the living room. The insect field guide that Mr. Q got for his birthday has been fascinating to the kids! I think I’ll wind up learning more about bugs than I ever wanted to know!

Pondering these words… “This too shall pass.”

Around the house… I have plastic-covered furniture and floors to minimize the mess this week. Hopefully, I can go back to “normal” soon!

One of my favorite things… seeing my cousin who is visiting from Florida!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Potty training and laundry… a lot of laundry!
