I couldn't wait! I had to give you a looksy. It's not the best picture, and I haven't cleaned up everything in the background, but you get the idea. I got them at a great price, and it's just what I wanted for this kitchen! I couldn't have found anything closer to what I had envisioned in my head. And it looks just like I thought it would in the room! I got them for a steal even though they are brand new. I felt guilty buying them when our van is broke down, but we've budgeted money for the van next month, and I've been saving a long time for these...it took me two years to save up $200. I was afraid that if I didn't spend that money on what I saved it for, it would hinder me from trying so hard to save in the future. So I am LOVING this table and stools, and that's what I'm typing on right now! I can see the kids playing in the backyard, and I can see my hubby working on the shed, when he's out there. It's such a blessing!

For Today, March 8th, 2010
Outside My Window~The sun is shining beautifully, and that makes me soooo happy! I can also see all the trees in my backyard that are waiting for their buds to start growing. Spring wants to come, it really does!
I am hearing~The birds happily chirping outside, my boys discussing how and why they are making their beds, and my little toddler is singing to herself upstairs...such a delight to hear.
I am thinking~of all I hope to accomplish today. I am trying really hard to start sticking to a schedule better. I know it will benefit the house, and everyone in it.
From the learning rooms~ trying to catch up after being "out of the office" for almost two weeks. We only got two days done last week. We need to do a GREAT job of getting school work done all this week!
I am thankful for~ my back feeling better. I can walk and sleep with very little pain now. I still have to wear the back brace to do any housework at all, but I'm thankful that I can do some at least! I can only stand at the sink for about 10 minutes at a time, but who wants to be there longer than that anyway?! lol
I am wearing~ my animal print pajamas, which are my favorite ones! That's why I am still wearing them...oh, who am I kidding... you've read this long enough, and you know me well enough to know that I'd still be wearing my LEAST favorite pajamas!
I am going~ certainly nowhere in my pj's!
On my mind~my weight and health. I've made some great changes, but it's time to take the next step just so I can still be moving forward. I'm trying to decide what that next step is going to be.
I am currently reading~ trying to decide which book to pick back up. I'll probably finish "Created To Be His Help Meet" and then go back to "Disciplines of a Godly Woman." I need some discipline.
Pondering these words~ I have a weekly quote on the top of my blog that lists what I am pondering for the week. Things that touch me and I hope will touch someone else as well!
From the kitchen~ IT'S CLEAN! I have an awesome picture of it to show you. I'll probably save it for Friday's post, but you'll get to see my new microwave I told you about a while back, and my new table and stools that I've been saving for ever since we bought this house! On another note, I'm trying to go back to making a weekly meal plan to schedule out our meals. At the very least, I want to have two days planned at a time.
I am hoping~ for beautiful weather this week! I want a hint of spring...really, really bad!
Around the house~so much to do. The usually laundry, dishes, vacuuming, mopping, general upkeep. And then I moved the girls back into one room...well, just their beds and a dresser in one room, and then all their toys are in the other room. I have to go through ALL those toys throughout the week. We got a good start yesterday, but that's all it was..a start. Mrs Piggy is happily sleeping in her own bed again, now that she's not by herself. The comfort of a sibling is beyond words!
One of my favorite things~A beautiful morning where you wake up refreshed, and positive about the day! Feeling like you can tackle it all! I wish everyday were like that, but they just aren't. Today is one of those days, so I'm happy!
