Homemade Tuna Casserole

Hi all! I've been busy the last few days trying to catch up on some housework since I worked so much last week. My schedule was so weird last week that I have spent the weekend in a sort of fog. I would work some shifts as early as 6am and other shifts I stayed at work as late as 11:30pm and 12:15am. I am looking forward to a more set morning shift which will make my life so much more smooth as well as routine. I thrive on routine. Also, I thrive on sleep! Young children just don't have an understanding of why Mama might need to sleep later than usual!

Thanksgiving Pictures

Yesterday was a day to focus on being thankful for what we have. It was also a day to spend hours
in the kitchen cooking a huge meal.

Thanksgiving Traditions

A quick trot down memory lane... Casey and I have been married for over six years now. But, this will be our eighth Thanksgiving together! Our first was while we were dating and in college and we even got to enjoy a college kitchen version of a Thanksgiving feast. Even though it was my first holiday away from my parents, I had a really enjoyable time.

Homemade Burgers

Good morning! I wanted to share with you about my dinner last night. Remember from yesterday I was planning to prepare gluten free buns, cheese burgers, oven fries, and green beans. It took a lot of preparation to make this meal so by the time it was complete I plopped down to eat without a second thought to taking a picture. Sorry!

What Day is it Again?

Before I could start writing today I had to check to even see what day it is! I go by events of the day more often than actual days of the week. It isn't the most efficient system but that's how I roll these days. Yesterday was a "work" day. Today isn't. Okay, that makes me laugh (in a ha...ha...ha...sort of way). My non-work day is just as busy. The only real difference is I don't get paid to do what I do here at home. In a way, it is actually better to do the "free" work. I feel a sense of ease here at home ("House work done incorrectly still blesses your family" ~ The Flylady) but I stress more at work getting it "just right" since I am being paid. I prefer stress free living.

Saturday in Review

Wow. I am just checking my clock and see its already past my bedtime but here I am. Typing. Anyway, Casey is at Applebees watching the Oregon Ducks football game so I have to wait up until he comes home. You know. Its far too practical to go to bed while its quiet and all.

This Time Last Year

This morning I began an attempt at what some even call the "key" to success which is getting an extremely early start to the day.

Time to Fall Back

Its that time of the year! Don't forget to turn your clocks back one hour tonight before you go to bed so you aren't late to church tomorrow!
