New Season...

Sunday, October 4, 2009


Sunday lunch -Out to eat with family
Sunday dinner - Spaghetti ,garlic bread, steamed carrots
Monday lunch - we are home because day care closed because of the mighty flu and because they want to sanitize. Come on people, as soon as we return on Tuesday we all will be bringing the germs back with us. Germs are everywhere. What is the point of closing unless teachers are the ones with the flu? Am I right or am I right? I should be grateful for a surprise day off, but in my field of work, I require a substitute. That means I have to write down precise instructions for someone to pretend they're me, so the students won't be able to tell the difference. I could find another facility that takes drop-ins, but then the girls would not no anybody and it would cost me 60 bucks to worry about them all day. It's not like they're puppies.
grilled cheese, oven fries, apple sauce
Monday dinner - Tortilla Stew, tortilla chips, guacamole
Tuesday dinner - steamed vegetables, chicken strips, packet gravy
Wednesday dinner - Happy Meals before church
Thursday dinner - brown rice and lentils, baked chicken
Friday dinner - Black Bean Burritos (using leftover rice from Thursday)
Saturday lunch - We'll be at Chick-fil-A celebrating A's third b-day!
Saturday dinner - Fajitas, steamed vegetables

Why can't I think of things like this. Have you ever seen anything like them in your life?

Missing You Mom

There is not a single day that goes by that I don't think about my mom and all the memories I'm making that don't include her.
Days before she died, my mom asked me if my sisters would be okay. I encouragingly told her that we'll all be fine. Don't worry about us. I regretted those words. Weeks later I started to dream about her. In those dreams I would frantically tell her the real truth.
My mom is in heaven and I will see her again. I grieve, but with an eternal hope that only comes from Jesus. Praise God our goodbye was not final.
I love you mom. Happy birthday.

Orowheat Sandwich Thins

I have just discovered these here in Texas and I love them. They are great for sandwiches and hamburgers and only 100 calories.

I have to add that I probably did have a type flu virus over the long weekend. Upon arriving to school this morning, all faculty were asked to meet in library for a brief meeting. The swine flu is upon us. Well, not officially confirmed, but some type A flu which could be the H1N1 is upon us. In other words, "Wash your hands." If I wasn't already paranoid, I am now. I'm hoping my self-diagnosed flu will immune me to anything else floating around the halls of my school. I pray fervently that my girls will be protected, in the Name of Jesus! You are our Healer Lord and the Only One with Mercy and Strength to help us get through this flu season! Help us Lord.

Labor Day Weekend

Today is the first day I have felt well enough to do anything other than lay in bed and pray that my family will not catch the same thing. I have had what you would call a very bad sinus infection. The only thing worse than staying awake at night with your own cold is staying awake with a sick child. Oh, the scale says I'm 2 pounds lighter, so maybe it's been worth it.
Our menu for this week will look a lot like last week's because I asked J to carry in the lightest bag of groceries I had. That would have been the one with the two packages of fresh boneless skinless breasts. That chicken never saw the light inside the fridge and layed on the living room floor for about 3 hours before I noticed it and tried to refrain from going all balistic. What a waste and completely my fault! J was obviously headed to play as soon as she stepped into the house and I was distracted with the load of groceries I was carrying...? Needless to say, we had no chicken for all the chicken recipes and I was too sick to cook over the weekend.

Somewhat a Repeat Menu
Monday: Taco Salad
Tuesday: Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff
Wednesday: Chicken Strip Salad
Thursday: Chili Enchiladas
Friday: Fried Rice and Steamed Vegetables
Saturday: Loaded Baked Potato Soup
Sunday: I hope we have money to eat out!
