Outside my window...it looks beautiful and sunny, but I haven't ventured out, and it is nearly 6 pm. My cold/allergies/sinus infection/bronchitis seem to be better when I don't go outside. Sigh. But the thermometer says its 90* so I am not too sad about being in the air conditioning!

I am thinking...FALL! I love fall and am hoping we have a nice, long fall this year. I love everything about the season!

I am thankful for...Lily not catching this nasty bug which has been plaguing me for THREE WEEKS!

From the kitchen...roast chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy and corn for dinner. I may still be in my pjs, but we will eat well tonight!!

I am wearing...(hangs head in shame) my pajamas, still!

I am creating...a master plan to simplify my life!

I am going...to the doctor (again) tomorrow if I am still not feeling better!

I am reading...The First American: The Life and Times of Benjamin Franklin. It is for book club, which is tonight. I'm not going because a) I am still sick and b) I am only a third of the way through the book. See a.

I am hoping...for a successful spending fast for September. The plan is to only buy gas and groceries. I am hoping we can stick to it. We do have something that has been planned for a while at the end of the month, so I know we will spend a bit on that, but other than that, I hope we can stick to it. This is going to be especially hard on me since Starbucks just brought back their Pumpkin Spice Lattes yesterday. If anyone wants to take me out for coffee, I am game!

I am hearing...Lily playing.

Around the house...it is kinda a disaster.

A few plans for the rest of the week...I have a meeting I must attend tomorrow evening, other than that I am just hoping to get better! I have a 2 year old nearly bored to tears since mama's been under the weather!

From my picture journal...

Matt and I at a friend's wedding 4 years ago. I was skinny then! Oh, to be skinny again!
