This may be one of my last … if not THE last Happy “Homemaker” Monday I may spend at home … However, that doesn’t mean I will quit blogging!! It is a comforting old friend, my blog … someone I can really talk to! ;)
Breakfast time, what is on the plate this morning::::
back to the ol’ poptart and coffee routine.
On today’s to do list::::
WELLLLLLLLLLLL, after getting a phone call this morning with a JOB OFFER, I’m off to a meeting with my potential new boss at 3:30 this afternoon to discuss the details. :)
Until then, I’ve got laundry out the WAZOO and the kitchen is a mess after the weekend’s neglect. Might even run the vacuum cleaner today. MiMi is “swiffering” the wood floors and by swiffering, I mean pushing dust bunnies from one end of the living room to the other. :-/
At Home in Mitford
On the TV today::::
nothing … except a few cartoons for MiMi
The weather outside is::::
rainy and gray … 56°F
On the menu this week::::
FRIED CABBAGE WITH SAUSAGE
1 stick butter or margarine
1 small head of cabbage, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 pound smoked sausage, sliced into round pieces
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes or rotel tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Melt butter in large skillet. Add cabbage, onion, and cook on medium high for about 5 minutes stirring to keep from sticking to pan. Add remaining ingredients, cover and simmer for 20 – 25 minutes.
Makes about 8 servings.
Working on my menu so I can go grocery shopping this evening w/ hubby.
If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
MENU PLAN and look at our budget with my new proposed salary to give us some hope/idea of how long we’ll still be in debt!!!! :-O Time to start DEBT SNOWBALLING!!!! (and that’s a good thing!)

Favorite photo from the camera::::
MiMi at the pumpkin patch last week (class field trip)
Thankful for a very good job offer (more than I had hoped for!!) at a local, privately-owned pharmacy and medical equipment supply business (about 2 miles from my house!!) where I’ll be doing medical billing and some pharmacy tech work … and praying for a good experience as I dive in as early as tomorrow!! I needed a job by October; I got a job in October!!
Thankful also that a local friend has offered to watch my MiMi at her house or mine, as needed, while I work!!!! NO DAYCARE for my baby girl – praise the Lord!!!
Praying for my friend Jen … more chemo today – a biopsy on Thursday to check on her progress.
Bible Verse, Devotional that is resonating me with at the moment::::
I Corinthians 16:14:
Let ALL that you do be done in love.
