I Won a Blog Giveaway at Southern Hospitality !


I actually won a beautiful window shade from Simple Fit. We've been so busy that I haven't had time to get permission to hang it yet.

The measuring instructions were very easy for Marcus to follow. When he gets back from Salt Lake, Utah, I'll have him install it.

Don't you just love blog giveaways?

TENS Unit Working Overtime - Curses of Cold Temps



Here's the bad part of colder temps for me. My severe chronic pain level goes up! So, here I am bundled up, wearing a wool scarf, a knit cap and Marcus' big winter jacket with my TENS Unit on level 8!

Menu Plan Monday - November 8, 2010


The hubby taking a break from cooking in our San Diego kitchen.

I'm heading back in training, for work, this week. We're learning the latest software system. I'll be required to start my day at 5 am PST. This is going to require 2 cups of coffee.

Kiana never heard back from Payless Shoes after her 2nd interview. She was very disappointed. It would have been nice if they had given her a call or sent an email.

It's cooled down in Las Vegas to the low 60's. And it's brought the wind along just for laughs. After a hot summer we welcome the cooler temps.

Now onto this week's menu plan. Several recipes are from Mr. Food's Quick & Easy Diabetic Cooking.

Baked Ham, Green Beans, Carrots

Bottomless Chicken Potpie


Guilt-Free Beef Stroganoff with No-Yolk Egg Noodles, Mixed Green Salad

Port o Sub sandwiches, Macaroni Salad

Pinto Beans with Ham, Brown Rice

More Inexpensive Ways to Decorate Your Home

I was sorting through some boxes yesterday and came across these quotes made on white cardstock. My future plans are to stop by Target and find some amazing frames.

One can easily make these at home with the help of their computer.

The roma tomato plant is growing very well.

I Spent a Pleasant Afternoon with Our Teens


You think you have to wait till your kids are older to hear them say "I had a terrific upbringing."

Kiana, Marcus and I were hanging out this afternoon, chatting about Toby, summer camps and sporting events. It was great to see Marcus' face light up as he share many great times in San Diego.

Kiana also shared some of her younger years but focused more on her life since she moved in with us.

It's great to have a day like this to remind us that despite the financial challenges life is a blessing.
