Good morning!  Just getting us started (if anybody's here).

I'm sitting down to have my coffee.  I will be back to check in a little later.

Good morning!

Just had coffee and some bread that just came out of the breadmaker. I put it on using the timer so the kids would have bread for lunches. Still fighting a cold (since Saturday). Really didn't feel like doing much of anything yesterday but was determined to get my steps in and get a few things done. So I let myself watch unlimited YouTube videos while on the treadmill and between other chores. I was watching Fight For Together, the Crawford family who just finished hiking the AT with their 6 kids, ages 2-17. Pretty cool! I watched the one where they finished last night with Micah. Anyway, despite feeling blah, I got 3 loads of laundry done, a fourth washed and dried but not folded, watered all my front trees and side raspberry bushes (moving the hose between videos), a sheet mended, light kitchen cleanup done, garden watered in back (planted more seeds and trying to keep them moistened with 100 temps), and dinner made (stuffed jumbo pasta shells and homemade bread).

Today? More of the same. Will fold that last load of laundry, walk on the treadmill, possibly lift weights, and would really like to mop ALL the living areas. I usually vacuum them and mop just the kitchen and walkway with the steam mop. We'll see how I feel in a bit. Also may wash the couch covers and blankets.

Dinner tonight is baked pork chops, homemade mac and cheese, and either broccoli or green beans.

Have a great day!

Catherine, I am exhausted reading about your day!  If I can manage to get through this day without Emily getting on my last nerve I will call it a success. ;D

Hi girls.

Just struggling through my day today.  Dealing with sinus pain from the flu we had last week.  Need to get this stuff gone!  We are finishing up our school day, which has been very productive.  I am running laundry, ironing clothing, sweeping floors and thinking about what dinner will be today.  I will also push through a workout at some point, just can't decide if I will do a leg day or try some cardio.  Don't really feel like either one, but don't like skipping days because it breaks the habit.   

Hope you feel better Catherine.

Cheryl, hope you and Emily have a good school day.

For what it's worth, I have read (and you may have read the same), that if you aren't just too awfully sick, getting your body temperature up by exercising can help kill off what is making you sick.But I do understand that some illnesses make one feel just too icky to move, period. Hope you feel better, too.

Lindsay, I hope you’re feeling better.  Sinus pain can make you miserable.

Well, I only made it a couple of hours into our school day before I was ready to throw in the towel.   ::). I had a feeling it was going to be one of those days.
