Busy book sale week

Hi everyone! It is book sale week here in my little world, which means 7 days of chaos! Organized chaos, but chaos nonetheless. It is busy with volunteers and organizing and training people how to use Square on iPads and praying for good weather on Saturday when we have all of the community groups in town set up tables outside. Well, it’s gonna be what it’s gonna be, right? I also have a busy work week with a number of meetings (groan!) and book club (double groan!). Jake comes home from college this week (yay!) and Noah and Laura both have field trips so there is a lot on the calendar and I am trying not to hyperventilate every time I look at it.

Linking up with Sandra again this week for Happy Homemaker Monday

The Weather…

I need the weather forecast to stay just like this. Today is just gorgeous out, and we are being really spoiled by perfect spring weather over the past couple of days. I don’t want it to get hot or humid… just like this is fine! 

As I look outside my window…
The highway guys are mowing the field next door and birds are flittering around the feeders.

Right now I am…
Checking email, chatting with with my co-workers, typing up this post

Thinking and pondering…
Thinking about some friends who are facing some tough personal challenges right now and how much I admire their grace and strength.

Listening to…
There’s a group of ladies who meet once a month to paint and I’m trying not to eavesdrop on their conversations, LOL…

How am I feeling…
Relieved but nervous, if that makes sense! Last week I had to reschedule a doctor’s appointment, if you remember, and I was able to get in first thing this morning. The appointment has to do with some GYN issues I have been dealing with for a while now, and my doctor and I decided on a path forward that makes the most sense. So the good news is that I don’t need to go for two more invasive tests. Instead, she scheduled me for surgery in June to have a polypectomy and D&C. So I am relieved that action is being taken, but of course I am a little nervous about the surgery. I had three c-sections, but for this I will be under general anesthesia, which makes me a little anxious. It’s a common outpatient surgery, and this doctor actually is the same one who performed my last c-section, so I am extremely comfortable with her. Hopefully this all will help the variety of “lady problems,” LOL!

On the breakfast plate…
Half of a cinnamon muffin with cream cheese

On the lunch plate…
Leftover pizza

On the dinner plate…
Hot dogs, baked beans, salad. Not the most nutritious day is it? Sometimes that is how it goes, though.

What I’m wearing…
Jeans, strappy sandals, floral top, mustard cardigan

On my reading pile…
This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone

Comedy, Comedy, Comedy, Drama by Bob Odenkirk 

On my TV this week…
Finishing Season 4 of What We Do in the Shadows

Sprung

Impractical Jokers

On the menu…
Monday: Hot dogs, baked beans

Tuesday: Spinach-artichoke chicken, baked potatoes, salad

Wednesday: Ham, macaroni & cheese, ramen cole slaw (Making double of this meal and delivering to a friend)

Thursday: Chicken wraps

Friday: Burgers, maybe?

Saturday: Definitely take-out after all day at the book sale!

Looking around the house…
Not too bad because I cleaned yesterday morning (yes, on Mother’s Day! It was what I wanted to do so I could actually relax later). Just some crafting stuff that needs to be put away. I dropped off a bunch of donations for the Historical Society’s tag sale and that made a lot of extra space in the dining room, so I am happy about that.

To Do List…

– Dig out Jake’s Social Security card for his summer job

– Laundry (always)

– Update summer calendar

– Set up our new outdoor gazebo (!)

From the camera…
Sadly nothing to share today…

 

Wishing you all a great week ahead!

  1. Hello, my friend! Happy Belated Mother’s Day to you! I am glad your procedure is scheduled, and your regular doctor will do it. I had four c-sections, and I remember the anxiety before those. Your May sounds as busy as May seems to be, but before we know it, summer will be here, and we can slow down. Maybe?! Your meals sound delicious! Have a cozy evening!

  2. Hope you get a chance to relax this week and have a great book sale!
    Have a great week

  3. May is so crazy busy isn’t it? Glad you have everything worked out regarding your physical issues, I think there’s a bit of anxiety with any medical procedure. I’ve had a D&C before as an outpatient thing and it was fine. Hope the procedure helps with everything. Is the This is How We Lose the Time War book any good? I keep hearing about it! Hope you are having a great week so far!
