Inspiration from Halls...

I don't know if any of you have been sick lately...but Halls has a new inspiration campaign! On each Halls wrapper is different catch phrases to help inspire you to achieve your best potential! So today I am passing on the inspiration. Here are a few that I have stared at lately in the midst of the cold/flu from hell..just sayin ;)....

"Don't wait to get started"
"Dust off and get up" (Not really I wanted to read while I was sick!)
"Get back in the game"
"Hi-five yourself" (My personal favorite, I got a lot of laughs out of picturing myself hi-fiving my self and missing! LOL)
"Fire up those engines"
"You've survived tougher"
"Don't waste a precious moment"
"Get through it"
"Be unstoppable"
"Go for it"
"Seize the day."
"Put your game face on"
"The show must go on. Or work."

So remember...You've survived tougher so don't waste a precious moment, seize the day. The show must go on or work so fire up those engines, get through it and be unstoppable. Put your game face on, hi-five yourself, dust off & get up. Remember GO FOR IT!! LOL

Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my Dad's birthday. He would have been 59 today. I really hate this day more than any other day out of the year including my own birthday. It is the one day out of the year that I purposefully do not plan anything because chances are I will be in the bed all day crying. I miss him so much.


Quiche Recipe - Quick & Easy


4 oz cheese - I like sharp cheddar but any kind will work
2 tablespoon of butter melted
4 eggs
1/4 cup onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of flour - I used oat flour bc of allergy to wheat
1 1/2 cup milk - I used rice milk bc of allergy to milk

Suggested toppings:
fresh spinach chopped finely so kids can't find
sun dried tomatoes & feta cheese (I tried & it is VERY good)
any vegetable that sounds good to you

  • Pre heat oven to 350
  • Grease pie pan
  • Line bottom of pan with cheese & heavier ingredients
  • Whisk all other ingredients together in bowl *Do not over stir
  • Pour bowl contents into pie pan
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until firm in middle


Conversations in Passing...

Heard in passing while putting up many loads of laundry...

Big Sister: "What stinks?"
Little Sister: "That's ME!! I pooped! You want some?!?"

I immediate pick her up and take her to the changing table...

Little Sister: "I pooped! It stinks! You want some?"
Me trying not to laugh: "No thank you but I do want to change your diaper"
Little Sister: "Oookkk. Here I hold this leg. That diaper is for me."
Me: "Thanks"

After finishing changing the stinkalicious diaper and redressing her...

Little Sister: "My poop stinks! Can I take it to the trash?"
Me: "Yes. Then we need to wash our hands"
Little Sister: "Ok. Can I get a ride with you?"

Me vs Elliptical Machine

Well the elliptical machine kicked my large bum! Don't worry there WILL be a rematch tomorrow.

Sitting here now after only getting to second base with a machine(I made it halfway), I really think I need a shower! Maybe some oxygen, a massage, babysitter and a chef would also help. Oh don't forget maid because I really don't think I will be able to pick up all those toys.

Before you get too jealous, it ain't happening sista! Only in my's more like this....


True Friendship

After not hearing from my "best friend" for more than 2 weeks, I sent her a text asking what she was up to these days. Her reply "Still on vacation and potty training". This is the actual text message I sent back "I am sorry I think you were misinformed, we do not offer vacation time or a health care plan with this friendship. I don't care if your grandmother died, you have a job to do. I was also told that you were potty trained when you were brought on"


New Year, New Schedule

I am still working on the "New Year's Resolution - Bucket List 2011" so until then I will share what the new year has brought so far. Today we started a new rewards system for the girls. Now my 7 year old is very excited about the whole thing but of course my 2 year old has not idea what I am talking about, imagine that!

I mainly wanted to use it to help with potty training. I am sick of wasting money just because I am too lazy to take her to the bathroom every 20 minutes!  Big sister is really excited because it gives her the opportunity to earn extra time on the Wii and staying up late.

So Day 1, we woke up late, thanks Dad! (He forgot to reset the alarm!) Big sister is sick and has laid in bed most of the day! Little sister is a character today! Some days I laugh more than I yell, thank goodness! I did get Big Sister to brush her teeth, brush her hair, wash her face and get dressed all by herself!! That is HUGE for us! Day 1 - Success!

Tomorrow is a new day!!
