Simple Woman


Outside my window...
lent 2011

I am thinking...
about the life of a wonderful woman who died last week.  She was 100% Irish and Catholic.  She passed away on St. Patrick's Day!
I am thankful ...
that I had the opportunity to meet this lady and to be friends with her daughter for the past 15 years.  I am also grateful for my little girl, who always thinks that she can make my tears disappear with a big hug and a kiss.

From the learning rooms...
Helping Sam study for the CLEP test in General Science.  We are really concentrating on biology which seems to be a huge chunk of it.  Then earth science by the end of next week.  To complicate matters, Sam is now working part-time as a pizza delivery man.  But I think it is good for him to have to balance study with work. It will toughen him up a lot.

Gabe and I have been working painstakingly on his pre-algebra!  The kids and I have also been watching the PBS Civil War on DVD and reading Uncle Tom's Cabin.   Izzy and Rosie and I are reading
Little House in the Big Woods.

From the kitchen...
Sweet and sour chicken with rice
I am wearing...
Black pants, T-shirt and vest.
I am remembering:
Mama- always

I am creating...
some flash cards and worksheets for math tomorrow and planning what I want to go over wtih Sam tomorrow in CLEP prep

I am going...
continue with Kari Anderson's Fitness Formula and The FIRM's Complete Aerobics with Weights, being very careful to use a low step.   FYI the cost for my knee x-rays was over $700!  Waiting to see what the insurance will allow.


I am reading...

The Story of a Life for lent.

I am hoping...
to follow my lenten plans more closely. 

But my plans for lent include
  • Daily mass at least one more per week but hope for two.
  • Bible reading
  • Extra spiritual reading.
  • Stricter adherence to the Divine office.
  • Rosary as a family.
  • Stations of the cross on Friday at Church.

I am hearing...
the buzz in my ears and the humm of my computer


Around the house...
