Easy Lunch: Simple Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

This week, our grocery store was having a sale for bone-in chicken, buy one get one free. Whereas I normally buy whole chickens, it was cheaper this week to buy chicken breast and take advantage of the sale. Once I got it home, it was easy to remove the meat from the bone and skin,…

Jedi Camp

Today, Bob and two of his friends started “Jedi Camp,” a five day, three-hour morning program offered through our town’s parks and rec department. Jedi Camp convened at 9:00am in the main room in the building next to the baseball field. A dozen small-ish Jedi-wannabes (technically, Padawans) stood in a row to meet their master,…

Big Shoes

Daddy’s got some big shoes to fill when he has to be gone for work. But we had this crazy little guy running around the house who was willing to do the job, despite still being sick. There was a wee bit of confusion straight out of the gate as to who’s shoes he was…

Cora’s shelf again.

It still isn’t up.  It’s a little hard, but it’s okay at the same time.  It’s a great emotional improvement on my part, I think, that I’m getting everything else unpacked first.  Once I get my bedroom completely unpacked, all I have left is my craft room and the pictures that go on the walls….

Baseball and Bridging

I was out shopping the other day and gasped at all of the July 4th decor already out on the shelves….until I realized that July 4th is literally around the corner. The retailers aren’t early – I’m just late! I really thought that June would be our “slow” month, the month we’d use to ease…

Cheeks

“Mom? When will I not have chubby cheeks anymore?” “Who said you had chubby cheeks?” “Coop said that maybe I can’t be Harry Potter for Halloween, because I have chubby cheeks.” “Your cheeks are beautiful and perfect.” “What does chubby mean?” “When you’re talking about cheeks, chubby means round. You know who used to have…

Thankful Tuesday

I am thankful for VACATIONS! Even the mini ones. Our weekend trip to Orlando was a blast. It was also hot and sticky and ohmigod HOT, but it was a great time. I expected that we would take a bazillion or so pictures, but I was so wrong. On the first day, I was actually…

What I Love About Sick Days….

No one likes a Negative Nancy.  So I’m being Positive Polly… or whatever Nancy’s happier counterpart is called, after this brief rant. We’ve been sick for over a month straight around here.  Lawson kicked off the latest sickness with a bang gag at the beginning of the week.  I’ve been avoiding the eyes of death…

Due Dates and adoption

Based on EDD’s (estimated due dates), I should have an almost 4 year old (in Oct), a 3 year old (next week), a 2 year old (in less than a month), and an 8 month old (tomorrow). I hate July. It’s one of those months that provides a strong reminder of what I’m not allowed…
