All of the coach’s wives and kids made a little caravan and headed over together.
When we got there my car was saying it was 108.
His Nana was kind enough to take him to the air-conditioned car for the last half of the game.
I know most people don’t have a problem putting their kids right to bed.
But I’m a stickler for baths every night before bed.
Especially when their hands and legs were BLACK from eating cotton candy, drinking pop and then crawling around the stadium. 🙂
Poor little people couldn’t even open their eyes while I was bathing them!
I love Saturdays after football games!
The kids and I slept in until 9:30 this morning which is unheard of over here!
And sweet Cade took his morning nap.
_______________________________________________________I can not for the life of me find my notebook where I have all the questions written down.
So if your question is still not answered after this post then ask it again in the comments:) What has been the hardest thing for you in your transition from suburbia to rural living? Did people think you guys were crazy? I would have to say the hardest transition has been the shopping 🙂
And what I mean by that is, where we came from had every store imagineable.Everything you could possibly need was within a five minute radius of our house.
Like I’ve said before where we live now it takes ten minutes to get to town.And our town now has one small grocery store and a few dollar stores.
And that’s about it.Although I would say that has been the hardest transition I would also say it has been the BEST transition.We have saved so much money living away from all the stores:)
And I have become alot more organized when it comes to my shopping.
When I go to town I always have a list made.
It also makes me think twice about what I need and has made me alot more thrifty in using what I already have.
Ahh yes..the bruise.
I hit it on the edge of the couch where the cushion had been pushed back 🙂
I still do use the local grocery store on occasion.
But I have figured out a plan.
Every two weeks I do my big shopping in the town 20 minutes away.
I make a two week menu plan and make my grocery list off of that.
I also buy things like toilet paper, paper towels, diapers, etc. in the biggest packs that they offer.
When I get home I ususally throw all of my meats into the freezer so that I know they’ll not go bad before I can use them.
One thing that I’d eventually like to start doing is something that my mom does.
She buys her hamburger in bulk and then comes home and browns it all up.
Then she divides it into baggies to use for meals through the next few weeks.
Such as for spaghetti and taco salad.
Pretty much the only things that I buy from the local grocery store now is my milk and a few fruits and veggies to use towards the end of my two weeks.
I know I’ve said it in the past but I think I might start posting my two week meal plan on the blog.
Kind of as an accountability for me to do it!
And also to give you guys some ideas!
Also, while I’m thinking of it I’m thinking about doing a recipe exchange on the blog once a week.
What are your thoughts on that?
Would you be interested?!
I was wondering how do you handle tantrums/whining?
Ha! Oh my. :)Typically when they’re throwing a tantrum I just put them on their beds.They can throw a fit on their bed with the door shut all they want just as long as I don’t have to listen to it;) ___________________________________________________ ~I can not for the life of me find this next question but I know it was asked somewhere” ~They asked if I workout and if so when I find the time to do it.~Before football season started I had started running again.BUT…now that football has started Travis doesn’t get home until almost dark and then it’s too late for a run.
So, I’ve been doing a whole lot of nothing! 🙂
I figure chasing two toddlers around and nursing an infant is workout enough at this point.
I’m just trying to conserve my energy 😉 ____________________________________________________________
I know I’m forgetting a few questions in there.
But of course can’t think of them.
So if yours went unanswered let me know! I’m off to search the internet for some cheap ballet shoes and leotard for Emma.We just signed her up for a ballet and tap class!
To say she is excited is an understatement:)
I think I’m about as excited as she is! _____________________________________________ Don’t forget to enter the Weenie Dog giveaway!
It ends tomorrow evening!
Have a wonderful weekend friends!
