What have I been up to?

It's been awhile since I've put a post here, so it's about time I write something! I guess I spend most of my time on "blog-it". It's a subscription blog. I started it about 2 months ago. It's quite addictive. But I really enjoy the feedback I get there.

This is my schedule this week:
Monday - cleaned a house from 2:00-5:30 pm
- cleaned doctor's offices in the evening about 1 1/2hrs

Tuesday- womens' Bible study from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 pm
- errands
- cleaned doctors' offices in the evening - 1 hour -

Wed. - took Susannah and Clemy to the RAC. I swam
about 4 - 6 laps. (some were only floating)
Susannah and Clemy swam laps
- hot tub, wet sauna and shower
- Home - read Susannah's history to her, asked her
questions (I learned something too!)
- Ate a little lunch, made coffee (again)
- Helped Clemy with Math
- Did blog-it, and then Mavis Beacon Typing -
(I type 49 wpm in Dvorak and only 14 wpm in
qwerty - which I am re-learnig) I never was
that fast in typing.

Goals for Thur: Help children with their school work
make a compost pile and put the rabbit droppings that have been in the back of the van since Sunday in it!
12:00 - company for a couple of hours
2:00 - clean a house for about 3 hours
Evening - clean doctors' offices

Goals for Fri. : Help children with school work
Maybe clean a house for 1 hour
Evening - clean Insurance offices for 1 1/2 hrs.

Goals for Sat: Possibly (not sure yet) go to Baker with Greg and maybe see Sylvia and stay at her house. (Don't tell her yet, cause I haven't asked her as it is not for sure) Greg has some construction class he might go to in Baker. Maybe I'll take the girls to a museum so they can see some gold or something fun.

Goals for Sun: Rest. Church here or with Sylvia

Anyway, I started a new cleaning job that is really hard. But I am using the money I make from it to save for a trip to Mexico in June to pick up Petra. Gordon will be coming with us to Mexico. I'll spend several days there and then go back up to Tucson. After that Petra, Gordon and the girls and I will drive to San Antonio, Texas to see David and Zyanya for a few days. Gordon will remain there and Petra and the girls and I will drive back to Tucson. THEN, if all goes as planned, we will stay in Tucson a few days, then drive back to Oregon with 3 of the Hawkins kids. It should be fun. It's not a "for sure" plan, but a "probably" plan.
Every evening for 1 -2 hours I clean offices. Some days one of the children come and help. It depends on if the boys are helping Greg at work or not. It's a nice job, pretty easy and pays well.
That's about all for now. Let me know if you read this if you have time. Marianne

  1. Hi Marianne,
    How do I view blog-it? Or do I have to be a member to read your blog there? Anyway, sounds like you have been really busy! I'm excited to see you in a little over a week when we come to the Ranch. I'm also glad to hear that Petra might make it to Oregon this summer. AND Judah will be home soon too! :)Don't forget that Sylvia lives in Ontario not Baker...but don't worry I won't say anything to her! :)
    I love you!


I'd love to hear from you.
