I am so thrilled it is Friday. This means the start of Thanksgiving break for the kids. No school for an entire week--YaY!!! I bought my turkey last week, now I just need to plan the rest of my menu. My turkey is 16 pounds and I paid 9.00 for it at Albertson's. Also, my laundry is almost done too. I have been trying to keep on top of it, so it doesn't become overwhelming. The weather has been nice, cold in the morning and warming up during the day. Our consolidated debt is now over, Kevin and I are thrilled. It has been a long five years paying that off. Now it is over! Kevin is now talking about having another baby. I told him I would like to try after the Holidays, so we shall see. I am still a little fear full, even though it has been awhile since I miscarried, I still think about it.

Dinner is going to be simple and kid friendly because Kevin will miss dinner tonight. Not sure yet, but I am thinking soup and grilled sandwiches.

Well, I have to take make Alexis's lunch and then take Tony to the eye doctor. Have a great Friday!

Happy Wednesday

There is no school today--YAY!!! My girlfriend who has a daughter the same age as mine, is taking the girls to see a A Christmas Carol and then to the salon to get pedicures. This should be a great day for Alexis.

As for me, since I don't have to go anyway today, I am going to do some laundry, clean the home and I have a few bananas that are turning brown, so I am going to make banana bread.

I am so excited for ThanksGiving, I just adore that Holiday, all the holiday cooking and baking and spending time with the people you love, friends and family. I can't wait!!!

Today is Veteran's day, I always say a prayer for everyone that is/was protecting our country. May God Bless everyone!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!

Not sure what is on the menu for tonight's dinner, but I do know it will be something with ground beef.

Happy November!

I can not believe October is over and November is here, that month just flew by! My neighbors little girl was sick this week, so she stayed here with me, while her mother went to work. It has been a busy, yet fun week.

It has started to get very chilly in the mornings and warming up a bit in the afternoon. With the time change, it gets dark so early--I LOVE IT!

Tonight on the menu is roasted chicken. I made a pork roast last night, which turned out really good. I sometimes cook it too long and it comes out dry, but this time, it came out juicy.

What are your thoughts on the H1N1 vaccination? Let me know.

I am going to bake a cake today, just because:) Have a super Thursday!!
