Sometimes I think I'm just blogging to myself. I probably am. I'm OK with that. My husband wanted me to start blogging again so he could keep up with our goings on when he's gone, which he is right now, but just for a short time. So, don't come stalking me or anything. I have two dogs...they're very scary. Maybe not as scary as the five kids I have though. :p Anyway, I have some new recipes I want to try out. I'm going to post the links here so I don't forget. Raspberry Breakfast Bars. Peanut Butter Crispy Bars. Homemade Pop Tarts That's it. For now. I'm currently lusting after a nice big Kitchen Aid Food Processor. Maybe I'll ask for it as a Mother's Day/Birthday gift in May?
I do have a Graduation Present coming on Saturday. Betcha didn't know I'm a college graduate now, did ya? I worked hard for this accomplishment. I'm pretty proud of myself. Of course, I couldn't have done it if it weren't for the Lord giving me strength, and my awesome family being so understanding. However, my husband did ask me to take a little break before I continue after my Bachelors degree. HA! Anyway, my parents got me a Nook Color!!!!! I can't WAIT to get it! Let's not mention the fact that they got me a regular Nook for Christmas. I might kind of be just a little bit spoiled? Just a lil' bit. I'm trying to convince Mike to take my Nook to the Stan with him. I'm not sure if I'm doing a good convincing job or not. Time will tell.
We've had quite a bit of sibling strife going on lately. I knew I needed to do something about it, and fast. So, last night we drew names out of a hat. I added my name in there as well, 'cause I wanted in on the fun!!! Everyday between now and Monday, we're to do something nice for the person whose name we picked. So far, I've seen someone pouring a bowl of cereal for someone else and leaving it on the counter as a surprise (minus the milk), someone else made a lunch for someone and put it in the fridge for them to take to school tomorrow, someone's bed was miraculously made, etc. It's been fun to watch! I'm trying not to get my hopes up, as I knew my teenagers wouldn't be as excited about this as my littles are. But, I'm hoping they at least put forth a bit of an effort. Monday night during our Valentine's Day dinner, we'll reveal who we chose. Fun times!!!!
I really will be sharing photos of finished object. For real.
