just a Wednesday afternoon

So after a 10 minute ordeal to get upstairs and in the bed for his nap because in his words, "I need to take a break cause I am soooo tired," Joshua finally lays down. We read a story and then I covered him with his blanket and proceeded to the door to turn out the light and leave. As I am leaving Joshua says, "I am just going to sleep with my eyes wide open." Really? I don't even know how to respond to that....

Joshua making me laugh again

So we are shopping in Sam's club and the boys are sitting in the front of the shopping cart together right next to one another. Joshua is being silly and making Samuel laugh when Samuel starts babbling, "ba ba ba ba." So I say to Joshua, "He's saying your name!" Joshua gets really excited and says, "he is! he is saying my name" and is smiling from ear to ear. He then gets a very serious look turns to Samuel and says, "actually my name is Joshua."

Quest to Healthier Eating

A constant struggle for us it seems but we are working on eating healthier. I am working on sticking with my plan of doing weekly meal plans on Sunday and grocery shopping on Monday. Thanks to a good friend of mine I am also working on using wholesome natural ingredients in my cooking and staying away from processed foods, artificial anything, etc.

Here is the menu for this week:
Monday - Baked Salmon, Parsley Potatoes, Salad
Tuesday - Deer Tenderloin Steaks, Stir Fry Veggies, Sweet Potatoes
Wednesday - Apricot Chicken, Brown Rice, Salad
Thursday - Beef and Veggie Stir Fry, Brown Rice
Friday - Slow Cooker Black Bean and Salsa Chicken
