Where I've been, and What's For Dinner?

You may (or may not) have noticed that I've been missing in action lately. I've been trying to be more productive, and generally that only happens during nap time. Unfortunately, I have a teething, 9 month old fussy butt on my hands that isn't keen on napping as much as he used to. Sigh.

I've been taking advantage of what little "down time" I get during naps to clean and organize the house. We have lived in this house for 7 months, but there are still half unpacked totes in our rooms, and Jackson's room had pathways between the piles and furniture. Now, his room is neat, clean, and re-arranged so there's plenty of extra space to play and crawl. It looks kind of cute, despite the lack of a theme. Now, on to our bedroom, which I need to have just as neat by the end of the weekend. At least the laundry is all caught up!

What's for dinner tonight, you ask? We're having Thanksgiving dinner! Yum! My husband's favorite holiday is Turkey day (because of the food), so we thought we would cook a big turkey with all the trimmings to celebrate the end of his summer semester. It smells soooooo good, I can't wait! What are you making for dinner?


  1. Hi! You left me a lovely comment on my blog and I wanted to see yours and do the same. I had fun reading through some of your posts down there (that chicken pot pie is making my mouth water) and I'm loving your little thoughts on life. It's a challenge to be a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM), but so worth it in the end. I love your take on it, that it just helps your creative side shine through. Something for me to remember! Have a wonderful day!

  2. Teething can such be a challenge, I hate losing the naps we are down to only one a day (if I’m lucky!)
