This Week

*We've been running lots of errands and getting caught up on a lot.

*Dentist appointments for Becca and Joe. No cavities!

*Warmer weather. Yay!

*A new fascination with handwriting. Within the past week he went from messy to near perfection! 

*Crockpot meals. Crockpot meals. Crockpot meals. So easy! Tonight it's:
Black Bean Taco Soup
1 lb lean ground beef (or ground turkey works too!)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 package mild taco seasoning mix
1 (16 oz) bag frozen corn
1 (16 oz) can black beans drained and rinsed (you could use kidney beans or pinto beans)
2 (14 oz) cans stewed tomatoes
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (4 oz) can diced green chilis
Throw in a crockpot and cook on low all day.

*Watching long forgotten home videos of my own childhood. I'll admit to bawling in the bathroom after seeing my Dad and Grandma on video. How I miss them. :(

*An hour of boy-free shopping this afternoon when Joe is at a playdate with his neighborhood friend.

*A husband who grabs a bottle of wine for his wife on his way home from work when he knows she is having a bad day. And tells her to take a glass of it with her into a hot bubble bath. A good book, a glass of wine, and a hot bubble bath = bliss.
