Just a moment to reflect

It's Thanksgiving morning.  I am thankful.  Our Thanksgiving guests have gone from 30 to 4 in just a week or so.  I am okay with that.  Good thing I have been so busy and didn't have a chance to go to the market until Tuesday. 

I am waiting for my sweet mama to call me back.  That is why I am blabbing on my blog.  I need to know how she wants the sweet potatoes cooked.  I do not eat them, therefore I do not know how to cook them.  I mean, yeah, I have recipes galore...but does she want marshmallows on her yams?  I dunno!  Up until now I thought I would throw them in a dish, pop them in the oven, and serve 'em up warm.  Sounds good, huh?!  Then I got to thinking about last year.  I made some bourbon soaked, brown sugar, slow cooker version and people gobbled them up.  Hee, hee...I said gobbled.  Anyway, the sooner she calls me back the sooner I can stop making dumb turkey jokes.

What did you have for breakfast today?  I thought about some delectable pancakes or an egg fritatta.  Then I thought about how I worked all day yesterday, baked all of last night, will be cooking and cleaning for the better half of the day and then decided on some frozen taquitos.  Yeah, the same taquitos we made for dinner last night.  I popped them in the oven for 15 minutes and we ate them with a bit of sour cream.  Eh?! It is fine.  They were delicious and best of all.... we used paper plates so NO DISHES!  Don't judge me.

Seriously! Who is she talking to?  How long does it take to call a girl  back.  She is about 5 minutes away from making her own stinkin' sweet potatoes.  I'm kidding,  I'm kidding!  Kind of...  I have a bit of OCD, I think, and it flusters me to move on to something else when clearly "sweet potatoes" is where I am at on my to-do list.  I am uncomfortable with putting them off and moving on.  It will mess up my entire flow, not to mention my list.

I'm taking a deep breath and moving on.  I have enjoyed these few minutes with ya'll and now I must go.  Maybe if I sign'

Oh yeah, Happy Thanksgiving ya Jive Turkeys!

TWBA: Accomplishments

This week on MGR, our blog assignment is to share something we've accomplished so far this month.  Well, since we're only one week into it I feel like I don't have much to choose from.  Hmmm.... let's see.

I've decided to get back on track with working out.  I was doing great until the middle of October.  I got hit with a nasty head cold and needed a few days rest.  Then, I got horrible news from the doctor's office and just hit a wall.  I fell into a slump and decided that not working out and eating whatever I wanted was fine.  Good thing that sour attitude didn't last long!  November 1st was a new month...a new start!

I am 6 days into another round of the 30 day shred.  I am working out 5 days a week instead of 7.  I like my two rest days.  My body likes those two rest days also.  So yeah, that is my accomplishment for November so far.  Starting a new plan!

A Little Gem!

Have you ever known someone who just radiates goodness? Someone who truly would give you the shirt off their back?  Someone who always has a nice thing to say?  Someone who pops in with a text message or an email to brighten your dreary day? 

Well, I do know someone like that.  Her name is Meghan.  Before I could even call Meghan a friend I could sense these things about her.  She contacted me first as a WAHM, through my business, offering me an advertising opportunity on a forum she was on.  I accepted and the rest just gets better from there.  She is all about helping other work-at-home mom's (or work-at-home chicks) like me.  She has an awesome Win It Wednesday feature on her blog where she spotlights a wahm and one of their great products for a giveaway.  Meghan doesn't get the goes directly to the winner.  She doesn't get paid by these wahms either.  (I know, because I have been featured on one of her Win It Wednesday's).  She does this out of the goodness of her heart, to help other wahm's.

I have so many good things I could say about this girl.  I hope one day ya'll meet someone as geniune and nice as Meghan.  For all you wahm's, drop Meghan a line if you want.  I'm sure she'll be happy to add you to one of her Win It Wednesdays.
