Meal Planning

Plan plan plan!  Plan out what you plan to eat for the month, week or for the next couple of days. Make your grocery list, then hit the store. Make sure you are planning for all three meals AND snacks. You don’t want to eat great for breakfast and lunch then about 3pm need to […]

Are You Prepared?

Tonight has been one hell of a night.  I tried to get home from work and my street was blocked with firetrucks, firemen, and tons of people.  Our neighbor’s house caught fire and the back of the house burned.  Fortunately no one was hurt and only things were lost.  Helping them retrieve items from their […]

Paleo Challenge Time!

Well it’s almost 2:30 am here and I’m still awake planning my meals for the week!  WTH?!?!  I have to work tomorrow and I’m still sitting here laptop teetering on the arm of the couch.  I’m trying to figure out who is going to be here and who isn’t and their likes and dislikes…ummmm wait […]

Mother Daughter Day

Yesterday my friend had a mommy daughter day (you can read about it here Daily Venting & Exclamations) and her pictures made me think about my daughter.  Since she moved out on her own last December we haven’t had very much time together without her dad or her brothers.  As I sit here thinking about […]

Comfort Food

My post from yesterday (Bringing Back the 70’s) and getting ready for another Paleo challenge has me thinking about comfort food.  Good thing the challenge is starting after the holidays because all but one of my comfort foods is a no no when eating a Paleo Diet.  Mac and cheese, potato soup, oatmeal, and mashed […]

Taking Another Step to Being Fit

Hot, Tired, & Smells Like Onions

We are back from our vacation and I’m been trying to catch up on laundry, work, email, laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, and did I mention laundry.  I think I have done more laundry since we have been back than I did last month!  We were only gone for a week what gives, did someone come […]

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to everyone!  I sit here watching The Patriot in my hotel room with my family and silently thank those that did fight so many years ago for our freedom.   And I thank those that continue to fight to keep our freedom.

On the Road Again

Yesterday’s post had us preparing for our trip from Texas to Wisconsin. Today we are in the car on the way. The plan was to leave at 5 am but as with most family trips, 5 am became 8 am. The boys and I were up most of the night finishing up our packing, making […]

Vacation Time

I haven’t posted in a few days because I’m trying to get my family ready to leave for a lovely road trip from Texas to Wisconsin.  Does the movie National Lampoon’s Vacation come to mind?  It does mine every time we decide to take a family trip and drive.  Granted its never as bad as […]
