Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather:::
The forecast says cloudy this morning, sweltering this afternoon. June in San Diego is very predictable.

On my reading pile:::  
Nothing. Maybe I'll borrow one of my mother's old Reader's Digest condensed books. I need something easy to read because I've been dozing off mid-sentence lately.

On my TV:::
Whatever is on when I collapse on the couch. Week 38 of pregnancy is all about going with the flow.

On the menu for this week:::
Once again I didn't make a menu or go shopping. The name of this blog is 'Just Getting By' after all. For a while there I was being a really good homemaker; its time to get back to my roots!

On my to do list:::
Wash and fold tiny baby clothes
Put my feet up
Figure out where to put a third kid in a two bedroom house

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I found a crochet hook and a ball of hideous purple yarn the other night. I haven't crocheted in years and was just messing around when my husband said he really liked the color. So I'm making him a simple bag to use at the shoe shine stand.

Looking around the house:::
Its dark in here because of the clouds. The house has developed a case of piles (not hemorrhoids; this is the type where a stack of mail turns into a stack of mail and a stack of coupons, then a little pile of action figures that need to be put away, and a box of baby clothes that need to be sorted, and a pile of laundry by the back door, and a pile of dishes next to the sink, a heap of shoes in the hallway, a little parking lot of hotwheels that migrates to wherever it is you're trying to step, and a mound of dirty/clean socks on the stairs).

From the camera:::
No pix this week. All the little piles of batteries around the house are dead.

Something fun to share::: 
I apologize in advance for the cynicism; I have raging hormones. What sounds like fun to me is not having sausages for toes and boiled ham hocks for ankles. It would be fun to not pee when I sneeze.   It would be fantastic to get up from a sitting position without the sound of air being expelled from my mouth, nose, or elsewhere.
