It's almost funny now to be honest.
I only cried a lil' then I realized that I'm not going to let these things darken our family.
We can rise above this!
A friend gave me some advice over the weekend:
that I need to start viewing myself as a strong woman.
Her advice really was what I needed to hear.
A good kick in the fanny! Thanks friend!
And so I got to work on our garden,
take a look at our zucchini!
They are humongous!!
We are going to have zucchini every night I think.
Happy thoughts for me, scary for the boys.
They aren't big fans of zucchini or any veggie for that matter.
But I'm no longer making meals that are unhealthy for them just because I do want a fight the dinner battle.
(Or threats of throw up...haha)
They need to eat GOOD food.
Food that is from the ground, not processed in a lab somewhere.
I have a new food motto: if it didn't come from the ground or from a mother, then we aren't gonna eat it.
After gardening, I made a blueberry/blackberry coffee cake.
It was really as good as it looks!
I also kept meaning to share my old journal with you that my dad brought out a few weeks ago.
It was so fun to go back & read all my old thoughts.
Like one of my favorite songs was from "Huey Lewis & the news (well I wrote blues)." haha!
I'm a total child of the 80's!
