our weather

The weather this past 2 days has been really great! We could actually call it warm :-) Yesterday was windy s well as warm, so out snow really took a huge cut! Now I hear we're supposed to get more snow on the weekend.

It would be nice if this was the start of spring and the snow would be gone soon, but here in Newfoundland we know that just isn't so :-( We are sure to get lots more snow before it starts going away for good.

Anyway, sunny weather just makes me feel better!

feeling down

I'm having kind-of a down day. Maybe blogging about it will make me feel better :-)

School hasn't been the best with oldest son again this week. I just wish he would have some initiative! Everyone says it's an "age thing" and it will pass. I certainly hope so, because I have 3 more to go through the same thing! UGGH! I need patience and understanding.

I am frustrated with buying food for this household of mine! Hundreds of dollars a month and there's still nothing to eat! We are trying to eat healthier and boy, is it expensive! It's so much easier to buy the pre-packaged foods for lunches, isn't it?

NOTE: I just signed up at Saving Dinner for some of their menus. I like how they have the shopping lists and nutritional information included. Signed up for a 3-month subscription. Let's see how it goes.

I sometimes feel "useless" in my home, even though I know I am always busy with something -- cleaning, cooking, shopping, teaching -- you get the idea. I think it's not so much feeling useless, but feeling unappreciated. I don't see what good I am doing in all the chores I do because it just gets dirty again. Food gets eaten. Dishes get messed again. Anyway, that's the rut I am in today.

Then I get stuck in the school thing again -- wonder if I am benefiting my kids by homeschooling them .... wonder if they are learning anything .... wonder if they will choose a good career when they get older ..... wonder if they'll be happy......

Gotta change my attitude, I guess. I should go get some lunch seeing how it is almost 3 pm and I haven't eaten yet.

February's kit -- Hugs and Kisses

Here are some of my projects for this month's kit at Scrapbook Heaven.

The kit is so sweet! I love all the papers. Scenic Route is becoming one of my favorite lines :-)

My little girl is growing up....

She went to the movies with her best friend last night -- first time at the movies without me or dh. I guess it's inevitable that she HAS to grown up and do things on her own, but I did miss her yesterday.

She didn't get home until almost 10:30 -- late for this earlybird who loves (and needs!) her sleep :-) She had a great day, though.
