Halloween night

I am finally getting around to posting Halloween pictures.  (Truth be told there are posts older than Halloween that I want to add but I knew this would look awkward if I waited until Feb. to add their Halloween pictures.  In our family, we had a cowgirl, Dorothy, and Abby from NCIS on Halloween.  This was my favorite year yet as far as getting their costumes together.  They were so creative and everything fell together at the last moment, thanks to a friend!  I had ordered a Dorothy costume off of e-bay at the beginning of October and it never shipped.  (And, of course it had to be the youngest whose costume was about to crumble.)  I don't know what they are wanting for next year but in my opinion it is going to be hard to beat this years ideas!

Want to try it before you buy it?

If any of you out there are interested in trying the new Swiffer 360 Duster, follow this  

I have to tell you, when we got ours I was excited to give it a shot but I didn't even get the opportunity.  My middle daughter grabbed it and away she went.  She dusted everything she could, she was running from one room to the next.

Same old, same old

I am sick of this, and need a change...for those of you that don't know me probably don't realize how easily I get sick of the meals we eat.  It doesn't take very long for me to get tired of the same meals all the time.  Ask my poor husband.  I can't eat the same meal within the same 30 day period.  I detest leftovers.  I am finally at the point where I have an awesome system for supper.  I have 45 days worth of meals on our calendar(yes, I do plan out the whole 45 days at a time).  For me, having our meals planned that far in advance is a relaxation thing for me.  It is one less thing I have to worry about.  As it is now I go to the grocery store twice a month and buy what we need.  My goal in life is to get it to once a month but I am not quite ready to take that step.  I am slowly getting back into the habit of making my own bread and that will help our grocery shopping out a whole lot! However...back to the subject at hand.  I am so tired of our lunches, and breakfasts but mainly my new gripe is lunchtime.  I have no creativity in that area at all.  So, if there are any of you out there that have awesome lunch ideas, please pass them along.  I would love to find some really healthy ideas that I can rotate into our meals.
