About Me

My photo

I am a very lucky woman with a husband and son who are smart, witty and entertaining. Our son, B, attended public school for two years, and then we embarked on a new adventure in the Fall of 2010 - homeschooling. We don't have all the answers, but we know B and this has been the best thing for him. I blog to preserve our stories and our memories, share recipes, vent and ramble on about our crazy, yet blessed, life. Would you care to follow along?

Although life goes so much smoother in our house when I make my two-week dinner menu plans, I don't always do it.  There are constant peaks and valleys in my household organization.  I'm sure none of you have that problem.  ;o)  My valleys are due to laziness and procrastination.  Why do today what I can put off until.....oh, forget it, I don't need to do it at all!  Even when I know the stress and pressure I will be under when my "Good morning! What's for dinner?" daily call comes from the hubs all the way up to, "Oh, no.  Now I'm hungry for dinner and I have no idea what to cook!"

I have not made a menu plan since August and it's been awful!  Last Thursday was grocery shopping day and I'm proud to say that I made a menu before going shopping and life has been much more pleasant since then.  (Well, except for the fever, sore throat, achiness and lack of sleep.  On that note, I got 5 hours of sleep last night!)  It's also time that I started posting recipes again.  And by again, I mean start posting them here for the 1st time.  I used to post recipes frequently on my personal Facebook page, but haven't done that in a while.  So, to keep me motivated to plan meals and cook at home, I'll be posting some meals on my blog now.
