Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

outside: right now it's sunny and humid. I suppose I should get outside and enjoy it because it sounds like we have a lot of rain -heavy rain - on the way for the weekend
thankful: for the www and the wealth of knowledge at my finger tips - including finding out if the correct phrase is "wealth of knowledge, or "well of knowledge". By the way, I thought it was wealth.
eating: after a summer of eating too much junk food, I'm enjoying detoxing from carbs - who am I kidding? I'm not enjoying it - it just feels better - now pass me the bag of chips.
wearing: jeans, tshirt, hoodie (because the air is on - what's wrong with this picture?) and barefeet
feeling: so many mixed emotions right now
creating: lots of layout packets for my trip away with the girls.
enjoying: lots of peace and quiet now that school is back in.
going: to a baby shower this weekend for my Nephew and his wife.
wanting: a few extra hours in my days.
thinking about: two neighbour families after a shocking tragedy occured two weeks ago
needing:  to get the grass cut this morning before the rain moves in this afternoon.
wondering: when this headache is going to let up. It's been two weeks now! I need to go see my chiropractor.
anticipating: our big girls trip at the end of next week. 20 ladies unleashed for a week. So much fun!
sharing: a layout of one of our many road trips.
