HAPPY HOMEMAKER MONDAY

Outside my window/WEATHER… it’s a little grey with promises of sun later today.

I’M THINKING… about the future, a new house and a renewed sense of purpose.

I’M THANKFUL… for my renewed health after my recent scare with Long QT syndrome.

IN THE KITCHEN… we have a few new recipes brewing for the March/April menu.
I’ll post the successful ones as we go.

  • BAKED CABLE GUY ASIAN SEA BASS

  • SAUERBRATEN MEATLOAF
  • PUERTA RICAN CHICKEN STEW
  • DRUNKEN PORK CHOPS
  • CHOCOLATE CHICKEN
  • SOUTH SEAS CHICKEN
  • MILK BRAISED PORK

I’M GOING… to the eye doctor, grocery store and for a walk.

I AM WONDERING…what my doctor’s appointment will hold as an outcome AND when we’ll wrap up this VA mess – seems like we’re always starting over.

Something fun to share::: My new Doxie scanner.  I’ve been able to take 2 banker’s boxes full of recipes and scan them into my computer, pictures and all and throw away the paper and eliminate the boxes!

MY READING LIST… Marie Force’s The McCarthys of Gansett Island BOOK #6

MY TV LINEUP THIS WEEK…  is a long list, but that’s the beauty of all of them being on the DVR – we can do series marathons on rainy days and still skip the commercials

  • BUNHEADS
  • SWITCHED AT BIRTH
  • HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER
  • BONES
  • CASTLE
  • NCIS
  • NCIS LOS ANGELES

  • BIG BANG THEORY
  • PERSON OF INTEREST
  • SCANDAL
  • ELEMENTARY
  • BEAUTY & THE BEAST
  • CSI NY
  • ONCE UPON A TIME
  • THE GOOD WIFE
  • THE MENTALIST
  • ZERO HOUR

I’M HOPING… SPRING IS ON THE WAY

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO… THE JEFF DUNHAM CONCERT THURSDA. I got hubby tickets for his birthday.

I’M LEARNING… how to be patient, but also how to squeak the wheel for oil WHEN NECESSARY!

AROUND THE HOUSE… organization is finally winning – rooms are being painted, baseboards are getting painted and fine dusting is being done.

I’M PRAYING… for a meeting of the minds and less political interaction between friends. I’m also praying for a unyielding family member who needs to get a clue to real life.

A FAVORITE QUOTE…

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.

―Jim Rohn

I’M GOING… nowhere until I’m done scanning in ALL the VA documents and composing more letters to our congressman in hopes of clearing things up – yay, like that’s going to happen, but I have to follow procedure.  For every step forward we seem to take 3 backwards!  This week though we’re moving onto multiple letters.

I AM WONDERING… just who to contact next regarding the VA mess.  We’re finally meeting up with a new service officer this morning – seems like we’re always starting over.
