When Mama's Sick

Sometimes life calls for compromise. This week has been rough because the little guy has been sick and now I've come down with the crud too. In an effort to 1: make the little guy smile and 2: get out of cooking, I let him choose what he wanted for dinner last night. His menu:

- Chocolate ice cream with sprinkles
- Squeeze cheese with crackers
- Peeps (thanks Nana)
- Guacamole dip with chips (OK, this was my menu addition)
- BBQ potato chips
- Milk (his choice, I promise!)

Hubs walks in, looks at our buffet spread out on the counter.
Him: What's for dinner?
Me: You're lookin at it.
Him: Dip? We're having dip for dinner?
Me: Dude, I'm sick, gimme a IS homemade...
Him: I'll fix a sandwich...
Me: Fine, more guacamole for us.


  1. Sounds like something my daughter would want, although she'd probably add some sort of ice cream. Hope you both get well soon! :O)

  2. Feel better! Tell the hubby that he can fix dinner for the family is he doesn't like the fantasticly random buffet spread. :-)

  3. That's such a cute menu! Hope you feel better soon!!

  4. That is the cutest thing ever! I wish I would've been there! It sounds way better than our dinner :)


  6. feel better! and ice cream with sprinkles sounds like a perfectly good dinner to me!

  7. All I have to say is: What's wrong with this menu? Is it supposed to be unusual in some way? Are squeeze cheese and Peeps not part of a well-balanced meal??? Now you tell me! P.S. Hope y'all are feeling better.

  8. Hysterical...I LOVE your little guys menu selections...absolutely priceless...hey, at least he was going to wash it all down with a glass of milk. I hope you all feel better real soon!

  9. lol at the menu. I am a closet cheese in a can lover. psst Don't tell. ;) Hope you feel better soon.

  10. Great for me. Sometimes husbands just don't have any sense of humor....go figure..

    Oh yes and I have tagged you with the KReATIV Bloggers Award. Just go to my blog to check out the rules...have fun with it.

  11. Sounds good to me.My hubby thinks sandwhiches are snacks.Grrr they have all the food groups,or can.

  12. No judgement here! When Jamie had a match to coach one night Caitlyn adn I pretty much took three avocados and had chips and guacamole for dinner...

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
