saving time



I pack my husband's lunch every morning (I know, wife of the year award, right here).  In the morning, I've got a thousand other things to worry about and the last thing that I want to do is rinse off celery and chop it up.

In effort to make life a little easier on myself, this is one thing that I really try to do in order to help cut back on time wasted.  I try to come home from the grocery and automatically pull out the crackers, the carrots, the celery and anything else that would be lunch appropriate and I put them into their own little bags. 

It's a huge time saver.  Believe me.

I just grab a couple bags, throw in left overs and a bottle of water and I'm done.  Lunch is packed and I can move on to making bottles or getting things ready for the sitter.

Plus, I like to think that if I continue doing this until the time that Coen is old enough to eat these sorts of things, that it will make it easier for him to grab a snack and have portion control as well.  Could be a great habit that will potentially last a lifetime.

Do you have little time savers that you use to make your household run a little smoother?  What are they?  You know we all could benefit from everyone else's brilliant ways...

This is such a great tip for time saving! I've never thought about putting things in baggies as soon as you get home from the grocery. Genius! Thanks for sharing!

I typically try to make Baby J's bottles every night before bed that way I'm not scurrying to do it in the mornings.

OMG I envy you! This year I started making girls' lunches for first grade. I do it each night and I've made it fun by creating fun little sandwiches for them (I use cutouts so their sandwiches are shapes!) BUT my husband is always making his lunch at the same time. He practically begs me to make his lunch for him but I never do. I'm so bad! I'm just concentrating on the girls' lunches and can't do one more or switch gears into making an adult lunch. I joke with him that if he wants his PB&J to be in the shape of a little heart then I can make his lunch!

I like this idea of seperating everything out the minute you buy it. That's a good idea. I've been thinking about getting bento boxes for the girls' lunch so that I put more fresh foods and veggies into them.

That is actually a great good idea. Thankfully I dont have to make my hubs lunch but if I did I think I would revolt :)

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on webmd.com just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
