Tasty Tuesday and more

Tasty Tuesday........well........

My eating has kinda gone down-hill this week. I know that's due to our moving, the packing, the stress, the feeling overwhelmed, etc. I fully plan on kicking things back into gear once we are settled in a bit. Yes, I know I could do more while we move......hey, I'll give it my best.

So I guess there's not a lot to say about Tasty Tuesday ~ we had leftovers from the freezer today. I imagine we'll be going over budget with our eating out this month.....life happens.

As to all the rest of life around here, well, this will be our third move in one year. Who does that?? Missionaries, I guess.....but we're not missionaries. Military? But we're not military. Army of the Lord, maybe. Anyways, we plan (I use that word VERY loosely) on being in the parsonage for a few years - at least until we grow out of it. It has three fairly small bedrooms. I imagine we could fit one more boy and one more girl (that would be three kids per room) - if we end up having two more boys or two more girls, I just don't know.

Of course, there's this new law/rule thingy going into effect in July of this year. *IF* we qualify (very big IF), we would be paying A LOT less for our student loans per month. *IF* that happens, we might actually be able to afford a house payment in a few years. WOW! I would be more than willing to move for our very own home at that point!

But that's all so far in the future. I just want to get settled into *this* place. Organize (ahhh.....I really love to organize) and get my home set up. Come up with a good schedule for us and see how that works for us. We just celebrated Elijah's 1st b-day and Selah's about to turn 5 - when did THAT happen?? Before you know it, we'll be taking day trips to the lake and cooking out every night. Then home school reall kicks in gear with two kiddos and first grade work! WOW!

It all passes so quickly, even more so as I get older.

~Excuse me, I need to go read a book and snuggle on the couch. Yes, I know I should be packing.....I'll get there~

You have just the cutest kids....

Thanks for the pics!

I know healthier eating is in your future, it is hard to make a major life change when you are in the middle of a major life change! Hang in there!
