Today is my 'calm before the storm' day, sort of. We are going on the weekend to my parents cabin for Thanksgiving. The only thing I've got to do to prepare today is wash and fold laundry. I want it all done before we go, so there's enough that I don't have to do any right away when we get back. That's one thing about SAHM... my husband is pretty good at helping out here and there with the regular stuff, but whenever there's a holiday or a trip I have a TON more work to do in shopping, meal planning, packing, extra laundry... and he gasses up the truck.
I have to clean the bathroom today. I hate cleaning the bathroom because we live in an old house so the bathroom is gross whether it's been cleaned or not. It's got two different kinds of purple tile on the floor and walls, and a purple tub and toilet. The sink was purple too, until it rusted through last year.
My supper plan is to make soup. My husband has been saying a lot lately that he feels like soup and I can make enough that there's leftovers for him to have on Friday night, since he's already told me he has to work late that day.
This morning I had a challenge in getting my son out of the house for school. If I wasn't home, he'd be sleeping in right now. I'm glad I'm home to stay on his case... I'm starting to understand my mom's wisdom in saying that you can work outside of the home when you have elementary school kids but they need you around when they are teenagers.
