Photobucket Wednesday

I have no clue what I did today but I began running at 4:20 a.m and haven't stopped. Have you had days like that. What DID I do?

I made laundry soap. I added baking soda this time as Stephanie suggested. I like this stuff.

I talked with friends.

We did lots of school. I thought we'd be WAY behind because of Mon/Tuesday but Arielle had spearheaded couch school and we were we began next week's work. YES!

We planned to go birthday shopping. Arielle will be 11 on Friday - but we haven't done it yet.

I began surfing the net for retreat centers near us for a PWOC spring retreat. I read Kathy's great post on planning a retreat again. THEN I realized that PWOC also has this on their website. ::Snort::

I made dinner. I am on the hunt for a recipe for "parmesan encrusted tilapia." There are 10 pages on google but if someone has one they KNOW they like....

The boys are all gone. The littles are in bed. Mike is at work. I think I'll go to bed too....or write a book review or two.....those nagging things....I must cross of the box. ::snort::

We've been a big fan of Tim for awhile now! He's absolutely hysterical.

I know what you mean about those days where you hit the floor running and almost never get a reprieve.

I don't need to make laundry soap - yet. But I did have to take my laundry to mom's house today, cause I can't use my washing machine. Bummer.

Dianne :D

Shall we say something about great minds thinking alike and all that? I'm just glad you're finding the notes/outline you wanted.

Our next plan (as a retreat team) is to put together a current notebook with a time line agenda/calendar to aid who ever is in charge each year. I love the idea of having everything all laid out and detailed. So helpful to know what you need to do, and when. :)

Happy Birthday to Arielle. Allen will be 14 on Tuesday! My baby! How did that happen?

I like to dredge my fish in milk and then dip it into parm or romano cheese. Sometimes I add spices to the cheese, just not salt since it is salty.

I brown it in butter or olive oil. Sometimes I just fry it all the way and sometimes I bake it for about 10 min. at 375.

Oh, Kathy, Kathy, Kathy you are starting to sound military. WE have continuity notebooks for this very purpose and a board position that is responsible for keeping the notebooks up. LOL

You could check out the PWOC link and click "retreats" board resources for their list. LOL

Dianne, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one.
