I am cooking ground beef, ground turkey, and maybe even stew meat in preparation for my Big Cook tomorrow. It’s been too long since I did a Big Cook, and I’m tired of coming home hungry at 6pm. On the menu: shepherd’s pie, lasagna, baked pastas, sweet potato burritos, beef stew, broccoli cheese soup and potato corn chowder! Everything is loaded with fresh veggies too – yum!
Oh, and the grand total for groceries for 30 meals? Under $300. That’s right And all of them make enough for next-day lunches for Leith and I.
I made chocolate pizza tonight. I’ve wanted to for SIX years! It was so worth it. Yum! I’m hoping that it kills the cold I’ve been trying to ward off for the past four days…a girl can dream, right? I’ve also been stuffing my cold with lots of sleep and liquid colloidal silver.
I’m still on my 90-say challenge. Shakes for breakfast rock, if I do say! And it’s kept me from gaining weight as I transition to a sedentary job. I’m going to start packing a gym bag to work as well – I get 75 minutes for lunch, which means I have time to go for a run! Yay I’m just sad that I don’t have the early lunch shift, because there are great noon hour classes that would be awesome to spice things up
I have to give a shoutout to Kim from My Nature Baby. My Reiki session last weekend was incredible, and much needed. I can’t believe how powerful energy healing can be!! Obviously, there’s been a huge amount of stress and change ind the past 3 weeks, and that session made all the world of difference in my ability to handle things. Thank you so much, Kim!
I’ve got a little side project in the works right now…I’m still playing with the name, but it’s a professional outlet of sorts. Somewhere to send people for information and advice about what I do. I’m deciding between two versions of a name, and then it will go live! Can’t wait
I have to admit: there are been a lot of people I have cut contact with until all the legal fun of leaving my business is over. That part sucks. There are friends that I lost unfairly, who shouldn’t have been put in that position. I didn’t ask it of them, but they chose nonetheless. For the rest, I made the decision for them so that they wouldn’t need to choose sides. So here is how it stands: if I met you via my former place of employment, I won’t contact you until the legal ink is dry. I don’t want anyone making false presumptions or accusations about your actions or mine.
I’m getting ready for a single parenting stretch this week. I’m surprised how easy it is in the mornings when Leith is gone, but at the same time, things run much smoother when he is here. It’s only 3 or 4 days though, so we should be fine. And I LOVE his away-work paycheques. If I didn’t like having him around, I’d kick him out for the whole summer. 80-hour work weeks make for some pretty pennies
Those pennies also mean that we can go to Mexico this winter – yaaaa! We are doing a big family trip and I can’t wait. It’s been two years since we’ve had any kind of holiday together, and it’s been 4 years since we were in Mexico. The bugz are so excited too. They’ve been talking about it nonstop since I told them yesterday
That’s all for now, bloggy friends. I have a couple posts to write later on – maybe I’ll set them to auto publish throughout the week so that you don’t miss me so much
