Well, I know that I said I would be a little more diligent in blogging. And, I'm trying. I haven't forgotten. I just haven't had the time to sit down and blog.

Tuesday, I put up a recipe. I will try to start that up again. I need to really research, work, and possible create some new recipes. I love LOVE to cook and bake. It is a therapy for me. However, my husband doesn't want me to cook a lot of the things I normally cook. I consider myself more of a "Paula Deen" of cooking. I really cook a lot like she does.....Paula.... who, ironically, just publicized that fact that she is a Type II Diabetic. I would hate for my hubby, myself, or my children to have that to worry about.

I have a friend, who found out about a year a go, that she is diabetic. I know it upset her, at first. But, from what I can tell, she is coping.... and coping well. I pray for her on this. I know it has been something to work on, for sure.

ANYWAY, I need to create some recipes that a) give us the yumminess we love; b) involved enough to "therapize" me; and c) guilt-free enough for my hubby to enjoy. That is a *new* task.

In my project list (which I plan to put on my sidebar soon) I got my Christmas stuff down. Not a lot, I know, but it's a step in the right direction.

*Totally off-topic: my 4th son cut his hair... again! WHEN WILL HE STOP? So, we get to go in tomorrow to get a *real* haircut. *sigh*

Man....I started this, I think, on Friday or Saturday? It is now Tuesday. So, I will try to wrap it up and then start again.

Friday was a half-day for school. I love those. If the school didn't take attendance, I wouldn't have made them go. :-)

Saturday, I feel like we got a lot done on the house. Christmas is down.... though I am still finding remnants of my favorite holiday in parts of the house. Blue tinsel, a Minnie Mouse Santa hat, a snow-globe, 2 rugs, and a rubber ducky Nativity.

I got a good handle on laundry....for now. I have read, and tried (or thought of trying) various laundry schedules.... "Monday Blues," "Tuesday Towels," but honestly, that is too much thought. Basically, I need to average 2 loads a day to stay completely caught up.

Note, I said, "average." I don't always get 2 loads a day. Some days, it's 4 and I skip a few days.... or, as lately, I wash it, but don't fold it or put it away for about a week.... then I have several hours of separating, washing, drying, folding, and putting away. :-( I'm trying to get away from it.

The only set day I have to do anything is on Friday nights and Saturdays, the older 2 boys do their laundry. Then, I do the little boys' laundry. This allows us to have school uniforms done for Monday.

Hmmmm.... I don't know what I was going to talk about. I knew a few days ago. So, I shall go ahead and post this, then blog another day.

I am so glad that I am not the only one who is still finding Christmas things around the house!
