I got quite a bit done yesterday, despite my procrastination. I got all the boys clothes put away and when i say all...i nearly mean every piece that they own. I hate putting away clothes. and that is why i still have a basket full to put away (today) that is just mine. but i got supper made early so i wouldn't have to fool with it in the afternoon when sis can sometimes be a little reluctant to nap. we had sca-rumptious chicken and dressing from my friend harriette's recipe (best micah said he has had! i will never personally make another recipe), white peas from pop and mimi (thank you from saving me from only north alabama purple hull peas) and mashed potatoes. my kids seriously don't know what they are missing. but i also took the time to follow through on a tip i read in parents magazine. luke LOVES spaghetti and some nights he wants "mama's" spaghetti. and while i don't mind obliging in that instead of spaghettios or something, it's time consuming. so yesterday, i boiled a whole box of ronzoni's smart tasting pasta and seperated it into single serving sizes by putting it in a muffin tin and then freezing them. (and now i should insert that i nearly dumped the whole blasted pot down the drain b/c i was too lazy...and short to get the colander. i was in a hurry fixing lunches and needing to give sissy a bottle.) but they were salvaged.
now when he asks for spaghetti, i can just stick the noodles with a little water in the microwave, then warm some sauce and then he can have quick, healthier spaghetti!!
we also got sissy a new activity mat b/c the one i had for the boys was a little boring. and here she is enjoying her little cherub self!!
don't forget...if you have been lurking and don't actually "know me", introduce yourself. i won't bite. i think it's neat getting to "meet" people you might never know otherwise!
