weekly to do


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 […]

This last week was an exciting one for me.  Well, the weekend, at least. I started out the week going to work like usual.  I had to take a little time off because my daughter broke her tooth in 3 pieces!  It worked out, though, because I was asked to substitute the next day, so I made up all the time.  The tooth was okay, too.  It’s my girl’s last baby tooth, so they just pulled it out and now […]

I’m recovering from a rotten weekend.  And prepping for a crazy week.  Not the best combination…my poor family!   We racked up $825 in unexpected car repair costs this weekend.  And I had a negative reaction to chocolate (it was the food I was allowed to add back in this last week).  And I had to rip out a section of carpet from my room, and cannot afford to replace it.  But then yesterday I woke up to the news […]

Folks, I have a confession. I didn’t follow the meal plan last week.  At all.  The kids either weren’t in the mood for the food I had planned or I didn’t feel up to making it, and so the whole thing flew out the window. We did NOT go out to eat instead, so I’m grateful for that.  We just ate what was easy and available, making choices at the last minute.  We also had a lot of fun doing […]

Howdy, howdy!  Happy Monday, friends. I am beginning week 3 of my anti-inflammatory diet.  I can feel improvements, and I’m so grateful.  I actually was feeling good enough to attempt exercise today, but I didn’t last long.  After telling my doctor about it, I received a gentle scolding and was told that my adrenal glands are not recovered enough yet, and that in 3-4 weeks we’ll start talking exercise.  So…I guess that means I’m on mandatory “relaxation”!  😀 The meal […]

This last week I tried a new recipe for Kalua Pork, and it was a hit!  I love how simple it was to make, and it’s a recipe we’ll definitely make again in the future.  The leftovers are already completely gone as well.   Another success was the Chicken and Dumplings.  I changed the recipe, so I’ll be sure to post my updates to it later this week. I’m keeping the meal plan simple, as usual.  I am planning to […]

Happy Monday! Another week is upon us.  It’s June 16, and guess what?  I’m COLD.  It is stormy here and, according to the forecast, it’s only going to be in the 60’s for the next couple of days!  It’s not too bad, but woah, I’m completely confused! Last week we took a family trip to Zion National Park.  It was in the 100’s then, but we had a great time.  What a beautiful world we live in! Now we’re back […]

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it.  I’m SO proud of myself!! I STUCK TO THE MEAL PLAN.  THE ENTIRE MEAL PLAN. That’s right, y’all.  Can it be done 2 weeks in a row?  I don’t know, it seems like something always comes up that changes my dinner plans.  I’m gonna try for it though, because oh, it was SO nice to always know what we were having!  I’m gonna shoot for the stars on this one! I’m eating out […]
