{day12 of 365}

Day 11 Jan 11 {2010} I woke up with a head cold today. Not ever a good start, especially to a Monday! I took H to school, then came home, wanting to go back to bed. But, I didn't. shock. I did a few things around the house while M watching Noggin aka...Nick Jr. with her dolls. (She won't call it Nick Jr. b/c she likes Noggin better. She is bitter since they changed the name!)

I got dressed so M and I could go on a couple of errands. We ate at Jason's Deli for lunch, went on a Target run, then we went and got a pedicure. Fun! I love a good pedicure, and I think I enjoyed it all the more b/c I felt so bad. After that, we went to the grocery store to grab a couple of things for dinner.
I've gotta say, I cooked a rockin' dinner! Fried pork chops, mashed potatoes, asparagus, gravy (okay, Heath did the gravy) and bread! YUM! After dinner, I went over to Kelly's. I've been invited to be a part of a "Bachelor" watching party/game. I met 4 new ABQ residents. SO FUN! Get this, 3 of them are from Texas, and one of those gals, went to Baylor too! Fun times. Sadly, I had to leave early. Heath had to be at work so I didn't get to finish watching with the girls. I did, however, come home and set my dvr to record the series. It's so cheesy, but I'll watching it anyway. fun times.

Day 12 Jan 12 {2010} I feel better today, just have a headache. I hate headaches. I even laid down this afternoon...but I'm getting ahead of myself. M had her first day of her new preschool today! She did great, not that she's ever shy! She LOVED it and can't wait to go back. One of other girls even told her mom that M was her new friend. YEAH!
In addition, I started unpacking my office. I'm totally and completely overwhelmed. I have so much stuff. I'm a digital scrapper, but I was a paper scrapper first. And, I like to mix the two. I have lots of supplies, but not near as many as I used to have! LOL! So, I'm trying to organize them all. I want things to look cute too! I bought some cute metal buckets, plus I have jars of ribbons and flowers. It'll be super awesome when finished, but the process is not fun to me...at all. I'll post pictures when I finish. I'm sure it will be better once I get some sleep and hopefully wake up with no headache!
Dinner tonight was hamburgers, new/sweet potato melody, mushrooms, and corn. It was good, but I had a moment during cooking. I had a lid on my potato melody skillet and took it off to stir. You see, I have this nifty pot lid holder thingy that my good friend and teaching mentor, Nancy Milner gave me years ago. Her husband made one for each member our team as our Xmas present. I've used this lid holder ALOT! And, as I took the lid off, I realized I hadn't unpacked it yet. This may not make sense, but Milner passed this fall in October. She'd been battling cancer. Her funeral was the day before we flew out to Hawaii, and I couldn't make it back to Texas, which just killed me. Anyway, when I thought of that lid holder, I thought of my sweet and generous friend, and my heart broke a little bit. I think of her so often when I cook--because of that--and realized tonight that I miss her. So my picture of the day is my lid, with no holder. But, I will find it and I'll take another picture. Milner, I know you are up there, just know that I love you!


  1. I love all your journaling! I've been trying to be really brief but this makes me feel like it's okay to write is all down. I cannot read everything in your page so you'll have to let me know are you putting it all on the pages too?

  2. Love your journaling Heather and especially your photo and comments about it's significance for the 12th!
