The Napping House

May 29, 2011
There is a house, a napping house, and everyone is sleeping.

And in that house there is a bed. A cozy bed, in the napping house where everyone is sleeping.

And on that bed there is a man, a dozing man on a cozy bed in a napping house where everyone is sleeping.

And by that man there is a wife, a dreaming wife, by the dozing man, on a cozy bed in a napping house where everyone is sleeping.

And between them both there is a dog, a big black dog, by the dreaming wife, and the dozing man, on a cozy bed in a napping house where everyone is sleeping.

And at their heads there is a puppy, a white furry puppy, on the big black dog, by the dreaming wife and the dozing man, on a cozy bed in a napping house where everyone is sleeping.

I love weekends.

The light at the end of the tunnel!

It's almost here..... so close I can taste it..... hurry up sweet summer!
Our Kindergartners graduated today and the next four days will be all about fun! I'm planning a few projects for the summer including finishing up the garage and some other things I have up my sleeve. We've been eating pretty simply lately. I'm on a new medicine to help with my insulin levels and limiting carbs helps with the side effects. However, it is VERY difficult to give up carbs! I spent Monday and Tuesday this week eating just meat and vegetables and by Wednesday I was starving! I'm going to keep working on cutting them back, but I'm not yet strong enough to cut them out for good. Here's our belated menu for this week... and next week.

Sunday: Spaghetti and Meatballs, garlic bread
Monday: Chicken and Peppers (in a skillet, with olive oil... ain't no rocket science)
Tuesday: Kielbasa and Peppers (see above)
Wednesday: Fiesta Nachos, mexican rice, corn and homemade guacamole
Thursday: leftover mexican
Friday: Pork Tenderloin
Saturday: Leftovers
Sunday: pot roast
Monday: Hamburgers on the grill, corn on the cob, sweet potato fries
Tuesday: meatball subs, green beans
Wednesday: Peanut Chicken
Thursday: Pasta Salad (we'll add some chicken)
Friday: School's out! Out to eat somewhere to celebrate surviving!
Saturday: leftovers

MPM: May 9th - 15th

May 9, 2011

Monday: Grilled Chicken and corn on the cob, bisquits
Tuesday: Sausage, Pepper and Potato Bake
Wednesday: Lasagna (plus one to freeze)
Thursday: Hot dogs on the grill,
Friday: Spaghetti, garlic bread, peas
Saturday: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Sunday: Pizza Pork chops in the slowcooker

A week in Pictures

Sunday we went to sunfest to see O.A.R. Good concert but I got very nauseaus and lightheaded from the heat so we ended up going home early.

the pineapple chicken was delicious!

Monday some furniture broke.... Harry potter to the rescue again!

Tuesday we discovered our dogs love peanut butter
Wednesday Colin Jacob Gill made his way into the world and we were so excited to finally meet him!

Thursday the power went out for two hours at school..... no pictures, but teaching in the dark is not fun.

Friday I took a LONG nap to recover from a very stressful and emotionally trying week and Dan got me some Cold stone to cheer me up.
Saturday our dogs ate some grapes and we had to induce vomiting. Not Fun.
