Menu Monday FB
I don’t know about you, but I for one am SO GLAD that January is over.   I don’t have anything against January, necessarily, but this year I’ve struggled with a lot of sickness and coldness and blah.  Therefore, I’m happy that the month is over.  Have you seen the meme that talks about how January was just a practice month for New Year’s goals?  Well, I can’t say I agree completely, because I’ve been consistent on working towards my […]

How to Improve Your Life in 2016 - 5 Things to Say NO To!
  With the new year approaching, many are setting goals for what they want to accomplish.  We look for how to improve our lives, and seek those things.  I do the same every year, and it’s something I really enjoy.  Last night, however, I couldn’t fall asleep – not because I was thinking about what I want to do in 2016, but about what I DON’T want to do.  The two phrases that came in my mind over and over […]

How to Improve Your Life in 2016 – Say NO ...



happy birthday
Happy Monday, friends.  It’s time for the weekly menu plan!  But first…   This is an emotional week for me – my daughter is growing up, and is officially a teenager!  WHY can’t we run away to Neverland??  I have to say though, I’m so proud of the young woman she is becoming.  She’s beautiful, and more important, she’s a kind person who always looks for (and finds) the best in others.         We’ll be celebrating her […]

Boy oh boy, it’s been a week.  I didn’t have a menu plan last week and it showed.  My poor kids.  I never had anything planned for dinner!  I’m hoping to do a better job this week.  I know that having things organized and planned in advance is a huge key to keeping up with life as we know it!   I’m adjusting to the new “life” I’m living being a full-time employee.  It’s still crazy busy, and I’ve got […]

Menu Monday – Weekly Meal Plan and Goals Sept 21



A new week is here, along with a holiday weekend for those of us in the U.S.A.   I assume you’ve heard the saying, “The days have dragged, but the week has flown by.”  That was this last week for me.  Every day at work was hard, and I found myself in tears multiple times.  I kept thinking I couldn’t survive another hour, and then suddenly, BOOM!  It’s the weekend.  I had planned on getting caught up on things around […]

Howdy!   Another new week, more changes coming. I started my new job last week.  I’ve been in training, and I’m realizing that it is going to be more physically demanding than what I’m used to.  I’m pretty excited about that, though, because it’ll help keep me in shape!   My daughter is starting school THIS week.  It’s her first year of junior high, so it’s a big and exciting thing for her.  I hope we’ve got everything ready!  Guess […]
