Monday morning again and all is quiet. Besides Blackie, I am the only one awake. Scott and the kids are snuggled under the covers and sleeping peacefully.
This week will be a normal working week for me and a normal lesson's week for the kids. In fact, the kids only have 2 more weeks of lessons for this school year. The year went fast and it is hard to believe that when we start up again, I'll have a 3rd grader and a 1st grader.
Besides working and lessons, there will be cleaning to do. I am hoping that Scott will finish up a few things around the apartment...door on the bathroom, finish up the kitchen wall, put either a shelf up or cupboard in the kitchen, etc. Yes, I do clean the apartment weekly, but cleaning this week is above and beyond what I usually do. Why is that? My parents are coming for a visit next weekend. The kids are so excited to see Grandma and Grandpa...so am I. (Scott will be traveling to RI to work, meet up with a few friends and bring stuff back home)
Another plan for myself is to read a book and finish it. I have checked several books from the library and have not opened the cover. They sit here for 3 weeks waiting for me to read them and end up getting returned to the library without being opened. Well, this time I am planning on finishing the latest book I checked out. I have read it before...about 11+ years ago. I started reading it over the weekend and am already 100+ pages into it. What am I reading? Left Behind by LaHaye and Jenkins. I never finished the series. I think I stopped on book 6 and couldn't go on because of the "darkness" of the book. Perhaps I'll finish the series this time, but for now reading a book from cover to cover is my main goal.
Here's to a good Monday to all :)
