blog warning

I got a warning one of my blogs was about to be deleted due to inactivity....I post in my other one everyday so they must mean this one although I posted here only 2 weeks ago.....but I decided to post something anyway.  I do intend to get this blog up and running again soon.  I have just had more to talk about in the weight loss world than the general world lately!!! 

See you soon !

COVERGIRL flipstick

As a BZZagent, I am often asked to review certain items.  This time it was COVERGIRL flipstick. 

I received several tubes in exchange for my opinion.  The lipstick goes on smoothly and stays on for hours. There are many color combos to choose from and no end to the colors you can come up with by mixing and matching.

I do have to say by themselves I was not thrilled with the colors I received by after mixing some I came up with a color that I really love.

I really think you should give it a try!!!

Menu plan Monday

I actually planned this week last week but never posted it so I will post it now.  For the recording have so far pretty much stuck to my planning except for a few minor adjustments.  

Monday: Roast in crock pot

Tuesday: taco Tuesday 

Wednesday: church chili in crock pot

Thursday: something with chicken in the crockpot (edited to add I decided to make Chicken delicious

Friday: Chinese take out probably 

Friday is grocery day, will have to plan the weekend based on what meats I can find will shopping.  

For now I am off to make some cupcakes (from scratch) for our scout meeting tonight.

It's time I started planning

 Hi World!  Sorry I haven't been around, I have been focused on my diet blog.  School kind of fell off the radar for awhile when Little Waffle ended up in the hospital and we found out she has diabetes (for anyone who reads this and didn't already know)  So now we are back on track school has started and we are going full swing.  I did opt to put Latin on the back burner until fall, we just have toooo much going on for right now.  

So what I have decided to do until I have more things to talk about is to start menu planning.  I keep saying I need to menu plan but since Little Waffle was diagnosed I have found it really is essential.  So here is my first stab at it.  I know most people do Menu Plan Monday but I don't know about anyone else around these parts we eat on Sunday too!  So my meal plans will actually be for two weeks from Sunday to Friday(the Saturday after pay day we generally end up getting food out or take out.)

Sunday 9/16  
filet of beef with potatoes 
in the crock pot

Monday 9/17

I have a season packet that I will put on a whole cut up chicken that you then roast in the provided bag with long grain rice

Tuesday 9/18
hamburger helper

Wednesday 9/19

Thursday 9/20
Easy Slow Cooker chicken 
( a recipe I found on a diabetic website) with some noodles

Friday 9/21 
tater tot casserole 

Saturday 9/22
grill out 

Sunday 9/23
Chuck roast steak in crock pot with potatoes

Monday 9/24
Chicken and dumplins in crock pot

Tuesday 9/25
beef stew 

Wednesday 9/26

Thursday 9/27
hamburger helper

Friday 9/28

These menus will hopefully improve after 10/5 when I can actually enjoy the food as well but in the meantime this is the best I have since I don't get to even eat!!!!

Funny how things happen...

So we randomly decided this was a good year to surprise (yes SURPRISE, so shhhh no one tell her!) Little waffle(dd7) with Disney.  There was no reason to treat just her except we love her and feltwhile baby waffle (ds3) would enjoy it for a minute we would all enjoy it more with out it turns out to be one of those mysterious ways things because out of the blue suddenly in three day little waffle went from healthy and happy to lying on a hospital bed.  While she will be fine, I don't think things will ever be completely the same for her.  Unless something highly unexpected shows up in her labs it seems she has diabetes and will have to deal with it for the rest of her life. There has been no talk of meds and I honestly don't know enought to know why that isn't an option or why we have to jump right to insulin.  I guess I will know soon enough, I see lots of research in my future.  

I do have to say I have never been happier that we home school!

Summer is over!

Well here at Carolina Classical Academy our summer is coming to a close.  We will be starting classes on Monday.  I am trying very hard to finish up my prep work so I am ready to go but it isn't looking so great!  (we were going to start this week but....)

We will be starting:Right Start Math level C
                            All About Spelling level 3
                            Prima Latina
                            Writing With Ease level 2
                            First Language Lessons level 2 
                            Life of Fred- Butterflies, Cats and possibly Dogs
                            Story of the World-The Middle Ages 
                            Elemental Science
                    and   Handwriting without Tears 3rd grade (cursive) 

I am very excited to get started on this year.  We will basically go right through with no days off until Thanksgiving at which time we will wrap things up for the year pretty much and start back up after Christmas.  We will be surprising Little Waffle with a trip to Disney World (SHHHH no one tell her!) I can't wait! 

This weekend in the mean time we will be so busy.  Our semi-annual huge consignment sale is next week so I am busy busy busy pricking, hanging and tagging my items.  The Sunday we are going to a reptile exhibition show to buy Little Waffle a bearded dragon.  We have promised her a new pet since her leopard gecko from Santa died 3 months after Christmas.   

That is all for now, hopefully I will update by next Friday with how our first week goes!

So my little man is THREE!  Where does the time go?  I can't believe even my Wii fit thinks he isn't a baby anymore. I love him more and more every day (even though he is definitely a challenge!)
