Wow – this weekend felt like “one of those days”… know what I mean? I think I am just having “one of those” LIVES… now do you
know what I mean? LOL – Well, as usual the chaos ensued. My oldest – Bubba Joe Joe (he loves when I call him that) went on a Klondike Camp with Boy Scouts. Luckily it was the nicest winter weekend we could have asked for, but even still – 40 degrees is still too cold to think of my baby sleeping out in the cold hard world – in a tent, on the ground, for the weekend. AGHHHHHH – When did he grow up?? And why won’t it stop???
Saturday I shopped for FREE cereal, then I spent some time with a couple friends who are my “bloggy-encourage-ors”… I debate OFTEN whether I should continue to blog and what I want my focus to be… HELLO- is anybody out there?? Do you read my nonsense? What do you enjoy? What would you like to read more of?
Today both my older kid’s started cool camps… Kerry took J to a baseball camp – which we are super psyched about! Our whole family LOVES baseball season and it is J’s favorite thing to do – and anything that get’s him off that darned iPod is okay by me!! Lulu and I had a cheer session to help out with and it was great because lots of girls came and were so excited and refreshing!! My girls’ ages (10-14) are having their session in 2 weeks, so I am trying to be in the habit of saying all nice things – LOL I mean, seriously it is a large group of 10-14 year old girls… need I say more?!!!
I hit the cool sales at Rite-aid (check them out HERE) and then hit the kitchen to try to get ahead for the week… Here is our MEAL PLAN for the week:
Sunday: The Pioneer Woman’s Meatloaf (click it for link, it was totally Amaze-balls) with mashed ‘taters and green beans – even with a busy day, I made this and Chili – why YES, I also, am amaze-balls!!
Monday: “Pulled” Pork (from Roast last week – I always make larger roasts or more chicken or turkey than I need so I have extra frozen for future meals) with Gravy over Egg Noodles, Large Salad
Tuesday: “Breakfast for Dinner” (like toaster waffles and micro waved Sausage links) cuz we are BUSY and I can only be “suzy homemaker” on some days!!

Wednesday: Grandma’s coming, Daddy’s in charge… C.O.R.N (Clean out refridg. Night) My family has to fend for themselves because I have to work – but Daddy (and Grandma) is the better cook anyhow, so they will be fine!
Thursday: Chili (made ahead on Sunday) with Meatloaf Sliders (Of course I made a 2#+ meatloaf on Sunday for just this purpose) I’ll slice the leftovers thin and place them on toast and broil some mozzarella on top, serving them open faced… yummy!!
~Girl Scout Planning Meeting
Friday: Pizza Night – Boboli Cheeseburger Pizza or Order Out…??? Depends on how the week goes – and whether I can get any Boboli at the Bread Store….??
Saturday: Ham Dinner – Big ‘Ole Ham so I can make a few extra meals out of it.
