Grill Daddy~Review

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

I received the opportunity to try the Grill Daddy for a review. Since we like to grill out in the summer, I thought this would be a fun tool to try. The Grill Daddy is a large lightweight grill brush. The cool thing is that you add water inside the handle. When you clean the […]

Holding On

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

This afternoon, I worked on getting paperwork ready for my appointment with the attorney. I don’t like digging through all that and remembering everything we’ve been through. Sometimes it makes me angry. Other times it makes me sad. It almost always makes me tired. As I organized and wrote notes, I thought, “Ok God. I’m […]

We’re in the middle of changes around here. I don’t know yet if they are good or bad changes. Last week, Lee went to see his parole officer and found he had a new one. #7! Long ago an attorney told us that it’s common to get new parole officers often. I guess it keeps […]

Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

I’m happy to report that I stayed on my healthy eating plan even though we weren’t home for most of the week. I took along my things I needed and did just fine. James and I took 2 walks with the family. My bedtimes have been fairly decent although a little bit later since we’re […]

Works of God

Monday, May 17th, 2010

I thought I scheduled this to post this morning! Sorry. Has anyone had any blessings? We’ve been enjoying time with my brother and sister-in-law and the baby! As well as my sister who flew in from far away. It’s fun spending time with one another. I’m thankful for safety on the highway for James and […]

Lee and trucking school are getting along very well! Every night on the phone, he updates me about what he learned. Today they were backing the truck. They drive several hours every afternoon. He’s so excited and happy and I’m so thankful. He told me that on one of the first driving days, he saw […]

Tropical Traditions Laundry Detergent Review & Giveaway

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

I received the opportunity to review Tropical Traditions powdered laundry detergent. I like it a lot. We seem to end up with a lot of stains around this house, not to mention boys who play hockey (who it’s impossible to get sweat smell out of clothes for) and their detergent had no problem keeping up […]

Getting my baby fix

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

James and I are off to visit my sweet little nephew! My sister flew in last night from a far away land to meet him for the 1st time and James and I are about to hit the highway to be with our family! Yeah!!! We are so excited. I told James we have to […]

Black Bean Brownies

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

I mentioned these quite awhile ago in my Tellin’ the Truth post. I was proud of myself that I cut them and wrapped them and put them in the freezer to save for later. Now, I’ll admit they sound crazy but they’re not bad. You can slightly tell the texture is a bit “fiber-y” but […]
