Chick, your pork is a little...dry.

January 5, 2012
 What is the hardest part about a beginning? 

I guess it would be the "unknown" part of it.  While I am super spontaneous, I like to know how things are going to turn out.  Taking that "leap" is a struggle in some situations.  

Didn't do much of anything today.  Finally got to sleep in a little bit, which was wonderful.  Kids' first day back to school.  They were all pretty tired when they got home, but finished homework quickly.  We got some Wii time in before Brad got home and I had to retreat back to my bedroom.  It's just too stressful to be in the same room as him, and being as he camps out on the sofa, it doesn't leave me much option.  But lately the kids and I have been cuddling up in my bed and watching movies, and it looks like we might have some time to do that again tonight.  Oh, and...Seth was actually EXCITED to do his reading homework tonight!  That NEVER happens!  His class is reading "The Outsiders", which is one of my favorite stories.  It reminded me that I haven't seen the movie in forever, but we will hold off on watching it, because he is going to have to watch it in class.

Tried a new garlic pork chop recipe for dinner.  It sucked.  Pork was so dry we had to drown it in butter.  Can cross that one off the list, I suppose.  We now have some vanilla ice cream going in the maker.  We got some mint chips to stir into it when it's almost done.  I can almost hear it calling out to us now!

Back to work tomorrow.  Fridays are a busy night for me, so that is good.  Have been managing to pull about 8-10 hours more a week.  I wish I could get 40, but I know it's just never gonna happen.

I came across a website that is doing a Photo A Day Challenge.  They give you a topic, every day, that you have to take a picture of. I thought it might be fun to incorporate that into this blog.  That way on the days I don't have much to say, I can at least post a photo.  I can't, and won't, promise that I will stick to it every day, but I will do my best.

Todays Photo Challenge is "Something that you wore".
This is an owl pendant I bought to wear during our owl-banding season.  I just love it!


  1. Awesome pendant. Sounds nice having the extra time with the kids. I know they appreciate it.

  2. I absolutely LOVE that pendant!! And I agree... "The Outsiders" is wonderful. Enjoy the ice cream!
