Since I’ve read two or three blog posts of the “I’ve been busy and away but I am still here” variety, I almost feel as if I’m joining in a parade with today’s post. A late afternoon parade of I’ve been busy and away from my blog type posts. Sorry, I don’t have any candy to throw at you. I do have some warm brownies but I’m not sure how well they’d hold up if I tossed them. They are rather gooey. This has simply been one of those kind of weeks of little “blog-worthy” accomplishments (I didn’t really get much done in the non-blog worthy world either unless you want to hear about my newest Facebook game addiction–Candy Crush Saga. I was warned but checked it out anyway and now I’m playing and cannot stop!). I thought I’d share a glimpse of a few posts I have “in progress” or maybe it is “in process”. Brace yourselves. Here is what has been happening and rattling around in my brain so far this week:
My Menu Plan Monday post: Oh, that didn’t happen at all did it? I had big plans for a tropical type menu this week but our budget and the first part of our week craziness called for quick, cheap, and easy meals! I also spent pretty much all of my Monday morning at the school sitting around waiting to open the book fair due to a bit of miscommunication on testing times (they lock the library while the kids do their computer testing). Our meals this week have been basic and boring. Tonight we are having pancakes if you need an idea.
Aldis Again: Speaking of needing a budget menu week, I decided to venture back into our local Aldis on Tuesday for the first time in probably 5-6 years. I plan to let you know my thoughts in an upcoming post. Their pineapple was definitely cheap and yummy!
X-Box Rules: I don’t mean that like X-Box Rules, Dude! I’m still struggling with this one but I need to do it and if I find any answers I’ll share them. I also need to figure out how to get this mess under better control:
My boys started their spring break yesterday. On Sunday, our cute sweet little kitten, Chelsey started something else. I suddenly understand more about the phrase “like a cat in heat” than I really need to know. We were a little behind on the kitty care aspect of it all. You know that B-word again. SIGH. Thankfully, I put in a bit of research and found a place that offered low-cost options for us. It was a small drive for me yesterday morning and again yesterday afternoon but the kittens (who were growing up much too fast!) are all fixed up now.
Chelsey looks a bit out of it in the picture but she’s doing much better today. Thankfully, my husband was home so I only had to herd kittens around town. Today, we’ve had pretty much another lazy day although the weather is wonderful! I did manage to get them (and myself) unplugged long enough to go outside and do this:
Hopefully, next week when my boys are back in school, I’ll have some posts perfected and published for you all.
