I've been Tebowed

Remember when I used to make a food schedule?  Yeah, that was really handy.  I usually have a pretty good idea of what I'm going to make, but I never know exactly what day.  I realized that I was much more efficient when I was planning better.  So, long story short, I'm going to try and do that again.  I'm going to use a similar system that I used the last time around.

Mondays: Soup
Tuesdays: Pasta/Italian
Wednesdays: Mexican
Thursdays: American (hotdogs, Grillers, etc.)/New Recipe Night/ Just whatever
Saturday: TBD
Sunday: Leftovers

Our tentative meal plan for coming up is:

Saturday: Special K Loaf, Potatoes, Corn, Bread
Sunday: Leftovers
Monday: Tomato Florentine Soup
Tuesday: Pasta with Marinara Sauce, Bread, Salad
Wednesday: Quesadillas
Thursday: Vegetable Fried Rice and Asian Wonton Salad
Friday: Haystacks
Saturday: TBD
Sunday: Leftovers

I would love to get some fresh new ideas of things to make my family for dinner.  I know a lot of us struggle with this dilemma.  If you are interested in doing your weekly meal plan as well, please leave me a comment so I can follow along!  I'll do my best to keep up with it.

Today was kind of a strange day.  We had a rough night last night because both girls didn't sleep very well.  It was exhausting to both Mark and I.  When we got up, Rosie was in a horrible mood.  Mark fed her breakfast while I fed Kiki.  The girls (me included) all seemed to need a morning redo, so Mark put Rosie back in bed and Kiki and I fell back asleep in our bed.  I didn't end up waking back up until 9:20!!!  I never, ever sleep that late, and now I remember why.  I have dragged all day!  I have been so drowsy and slow and totally feel like I am in a fog.  It was a huge accomplishment just to get the girls bathed.  By the time Mark got home, I knew I needed to get up and out of the house.  We decided to go get a bite to eat and to the Christian bookstore in Asheville for a devotional book for us.  We also drove around parts of downtown Asheville that we hadn't seen yet and some neighborhoods around where we live.  I love a good Friday night drive.  

As you probably have gathered, I'm a sucker for Christian movies and Fireproof was no different.  Yes, the acting was pretty horrendous, but the message was hard to argue with.  This companion devotional book for couples seems to be very promising, so that's the one we decided to get.  I think it will be fun to do the love dare together.  I'll let you know what we end up thinking.

We also got Monroe a VeggieTales movie.  I chose one on selfishness because we are having a little trouble with sharing our toys with friends.  I'm not sure if it made the kind of impact I was hoping, but she now knows all about Bob and Larry.

My sweeties watching VeggieTales.
I don't know how you feel about Denver Bronco's quarterback Tim Tebow, but I can tell you that before today, I didn't like him.  I thought he was a bit of a poser and really annoying.  Also, for some reason I have a real dislike for all things Denver.  That was until Mark read me this article by his favorite columnist Rick Reilly.  Do yourself a favor and read it.  It will totally change your perspective.  I've been Tebowed.

So, Mark and I have decided to write a book together.  I know, that sounds kind of crazy, but that's our goal for this year. You may say to yourself, "what on earth would you two have to write about?" and really, your question would have some major validity.  We aren't experts on anything but OUR story and that's what we want to share.  We've had a some rough times in our marriage, and by the miraculous grace of God, he took our marriage and healed it.  We would really like to be a help to other couples who may have gone through a similar situation and feel like they have no hope.  So anyway, that's why we decided we want to do this.  I'm actually very excited.  We are going to start on our outline tonight, so I probably should wrap this thing up.

Have a wonderful and restful night.  Love to you!

What an ambitious undertaking! Writing a book together sounds like a great growing/bonding experience within it self. I look forward to hearing more about it in the future. p.s.thanks for the award.
