Happy Homemaker Monday - 6/10/19 edition

This is the last week of school for our district! Our house sort of revolves around the school year, since both kids are in the local schools, and I work at the closest elementary to us. While I love working with the kids, I'm really looking foward to sleeping in!

While we wind down for the summer, it's also an exceptionally crazy week since both hubby and I celebrate our birthdays (his is Wednesday, mine is Thursday) and then we take Maggie to baton camp on Sunday, which is Fathers' Day! Whew!

It's been a while, but I'm back for another round of Happy Homemaker Monday with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Since I figure I only am scheduled to work 10 hours/week outside my home, my first (and always most important) job is stay-at-home and work-from-home mom.

I'm thrilled to finally be seeing some summer-ness. Of course, I'm accompanying my daughter on a zoo field trip on Thursday...

TBR {to be read}::
I just last night started Losing Brave by Bailee Madison & Stefne Miller. I've also uploaded Whisper Me This by Kerry Anne King to my Kindle.
Watch this space in a few days for a summary of what I read in May.

On my TV this week::
Hubs and I finished up the first three episodes of Season Three of The Handmaid's Tale. The next episode will be released by Hulu on Wednesday. Can't wait!
While scoring, I watched a bit of Baby Driver (a favorite) for background noise. I've also overheard some of Lego Movie 2, the new Annie, Epic, and Toy Story when the kids played inside for a few minutes..

This week's menu::
Birthdays are making this one easy-ish.
Tonight we've got chicken and dumplings going in the crock-pot.
Tomorrow - I'll have to come up with something! LOL
Wednesday is hubby's birthday - hubby's choice!
Thursday I've requested a platter of lamb, chicken, and all the fixings from our local Pita Way (or similar) - YUMMO!
And Thursday we also get three meals from Hello Fresh, so that will take care of Friday (and next Tuesday & Wednesday!).

To-do list::
Wrap hubby's presents for his birthday and Fathers Day
Mail Maggie's hair donation to Children with Hair Loss
Get graduation cards for the three graduates we'll be celebrating this weekend
Turn in my last timesheet for this year on Wednesday

Looking forward to::
Sleeping in. :D

Looking around the house::
I've got one more week of test scoring (which means I'm usually at my computer if I'm home), but then I can sit out and read, probably pull a few weeds...

One of my simple pleasures:: 
I just got my new planner for 2020 from Erin Condren, and also got the summer surprise box - I love it all!! I ordered earlier than usual because I'm going to start planning our trip to Disney for spring break next year!

Be sure to wear gloves when weeding. I just jumped in the other day and have poison ivy to thank for my rash.
