That Little Accountability Thing…

When I decided last week that I was going to do a Word of the Year, I spent some time thinking about what had caused me to not stick with my past words. Not a lack of drive or desire, nor the feeling that I’d picked something that hadn’t applied. It was, simply, to hard…

Menu Plan Monday

Still having 99 problems, including not having my lap top back yet AND we’ve not even managed to mail it out yet, which means from today it will still be gone for two weeks, but I’m kicked Big Daddy out of his big comfy chair in the office and have taken over! Sort of. After…

Word of the Year 2012-Accountability

Two posts in a week? Yes, I’m still having those 99 problems, but it’s Big Daddy’s turn to give the little girls a bath and that buys me fifteen minutes alone with HIS computer. Each year, Ali Edwards encourages people to chose a word to live by for the year.  In the past, I’ve picked…

Back to those 99 problems.

Now, my lap top is one. My work horse is having a few issues and has to be sent out for repair.  And, I cannot effectively blog from my iPhone.  I tried.  It takes for. ever.  Really.  Especially when doing posts like the menu plan.  Big Daddy is going to mail out my lap top tomorrow (you hear…

Snow

2011 In Review-My Favorite Books

My goal for last year was to read 52 books. I fell short at 48, but that’s still double my 2010 totals. I’m setting my goal at 52 again this year. I’ve done a review post about the books I read in 2010 (and I’d thought I’d done one for other years, but no. I…

The first menu plan of 2012.

I’m feeling better. It took a while. I’m not 100%, but I’m close. I decided not to blog during the holidays. I considered it, but I decided not to add any more balls to the load I was juggling and things here stayed quiet. But, it’s a new year AND it’s Monday! HOLLA! Who missed…
