Oh cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, but children grow up, as I’ve learned with my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust
Chores can wait. Laundry can wait. Dishes can wait. I will never get the time back with my children. I want them to remember I played with them not that I was always busy. --- A Hard Lesson learned too late for me :( He's all grown up now, and the tables have turned... just like that damn Harry Chapin song "The Cat's in the Cradle". Play with them NOW!
“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I‘ve learned that making a “living” is not the
hipsterfood: Cookies are my absolute favorite dessert. Even so, I’ve had my share of lackluster ones - bland, dry, hard as rocks. But these cookies, THESE are something special. With a soft cocoa cookie base, crispy crunchy oats, a slight hint of coconut, and the perfect amount of salt, these are cookies you’ll eat right up in no time. Read More
I stuffed myself with Cheetos yesterday and then someone said: “Oh no, you will have to work all that off tomorrow.” And I was just like: “I don’t care, the stuff tastes amazing.” As the saying goes: One moment on your lips, forever on your hips. But what to do, when the moment is so great? Jennifer Lawrence, on her love of food.
Odds and Ends
Cleaning stove burners and pans! No scrubbing. I'm trying this tomorrow.
7 day spring cleaning break down - Doing a bit of this tomorrow as we're moving in on Tuesday. Apartment will be fresh and clean!
#Trust in God #Oh so true~~ I'm a disgusted catholic ,but I do believe in god and his graces . Why am I so disgusted with the Catholic church gee thanks for all the child abuse you inflicted on a innocent soul me .As my parents were divorcing through the grades of kinder and right up to the 2nd grade. I was a lost soul, and I never recovered.. Hopefully, God will help me .... I don't have a church need to find one.
Instead of strictly regimenting every minute of every hour of my day, I’ve learned to set priorities for the day. Certain things (like Bible study) are such a high priority that they need to get done first thing. Otherwise, the unexpected things of your day (especially life with little kids) will turn your schedule upside down and you may end up heading to bed at night feeling like you got nothing done…again. And that’s what today’s episode is about: Creating routines throughout our day to help
We only had a little time to spend as father and son, but I know you wouldn't have left, if you weren't fighting for everyone. So I'll take care of mommy and wait till you come home, I can't wait to pick you up and show you how much I've grown! Daddy don't you worry, keep doing what you do. Mommy and I are OK, we couldn't be more proud of you. (military child) this made me cry!
If I can't wait to grow my hair out long I'm going to wait till my bangs and layers grown out and do this.
only with this guy till Luke Bryan shows up because I'll admit my boy's butt ain't nowhere near as fine as Luke's. So shake it for me, crash my party and show me a damn good summertime Luke Bryan.(:
I have been walked out on, used and forgotten and I don’t regret one moment of it because in those moments, I’ve learned a lot. I’ve learned who I can trust and can’t. I’ve learned the meaning of friendship. I’ve learned how to tell when people are lying and when they’re sincere. I’ve learned how to be a teenager, and how to grow up when I need to. I’ve been to hell and back a few times, and I won’t ever take what I have for granted.this is
How Could You?: Kids Talk About Trust......this is a must. Trust is such a huge thing to teach children, to not lie and always be honest with people so they will grow up to be respectable adults!
Oh so delicious banana bread with chocolate chips. I had two bananas that were beyond ripe, so I didn't know what to do with them - and then I thought of baking banana bread. This is my aunt's recipe and i usually make it in muffin form, but I just used my loaf pans today instead. As you can see, I couldn't resist tasting it---- it was so good. I'm making biscotti tomorrow and then baking a brown butter cake for my grandmother's birthday in two

As the weather cools down, warm up with this slimmed-down pumpkin spice latte. Our 85-calorie homemade version is light, vegan-friendly and oh-so-good.
This is my personal cleaning list, including cleaning tasks to be done daily, weekly, and and semi-annually. It’s quite likely your cleaning goals won’t be exactly the same as my own, so I’ve also included a customizable form that you can fill out on the computer and print for your personal use.
why didn't i think of that
Cheerios Breakfast Cookies (My kids don't eat raisins, so I omitted and replaced them with mini chocolate chips -- not as healthy, but, oh so good!)
✴ OK, so it’s been quite the week speaking to some of you directly. In response to what I’ve learned? The introduction of the 15 min shred to sexy workouts. ❇ That is for those of you who may already/previously looked fantastic. But slipped up along the away… Gaining a few pounds. This will be one of several variations of this workout, since there are a ton of ways to execute it for maximum effect. So we’ll start ‘kinda’ easy. But still intense.
So true . I will be faithful to a fault but once I'm done with you I'm done .. And calling six months later saying you messed up will have no effect any longer. Learned that about myself from experience :) appreciate what you have while you do or you will miss it one day
