Last weekend was filled with fun. Food included. Sharon and Company were in town and I let loose and ate at will. Guess what Stuart slept through the night. Saturday (I gorged on Michelle's Peanut Butter Fingers) Sunday (Meat Balls and homemade ice cream) Monday (chocolate chip, toffee, nut, condensed milk bars....you know the ones that you just can't leave alone....) By Tuesday I was committed again to nutritious low cal options. And guess what? the boy could not be satisfied. Does what I eat really have a connection to the type of milk I produce? (This is why James won't tell anyone about our blog--because it's all about nursing and stuff) I've always been a "jersey" when it came to milk--and really, the supply is still secure but the value of it, in Stuart's very vocal opinion, maybe not as filling? What are my options? Eat at will for the next six months? Move Stu on to some cereal of sorts to make up for non filling milk? I'm still debating so this week I made spritzer cookies with Addie and ate Robyn' s BTS cake two nights in a row. Delish.... and Stuart is back to sleeping 10 - 7. Maybe I've already made up my mind.
I read a great book this week. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. I always say no book is worth a night's sleep but I broke my rule by finishing it Wednesday morning .... what a memoir.
Last night in FHE James had the kids act out Nephi being tied up on the boat. The bb hoop was a the mast, Addie was Nephi's wife and Paige and Stuart were Laman and Lemuel. I was the wind of the storm.
This post has been brought to you by six loads of unfold clean laundry. It's folded now--do you believe me? And another commitment to laundry has been made: to stick to it so that folding over'load' will not happen again.
Oh and my scrappy quilt. I just stuck it up with sticky tack--it's not quilted yet. But it's put together. Now I need to figure out a boarder? What do you think? Does it need one? Maybe I don't like it anymore. Ever worked on a project for 2+ years and in the end it's not exactly the look--because of time. PS Addie made me snowflakes for under the twiggy circles. Just until I find something. So sweet.
