    Hey Ladies! Jina, I hear you, I am super tired too. Hopefully you will get your energy back soon. That stew recipe looks great! I am definitely going to try that next week. Mmmmmm, I love beef stew. We call it Pirate Stew because my MIL made some homemade and sent some home for us, and when she was trying to get T to eat it the first time she told him pirates eat it all the time (so he would eat it too.)

    Bonita - That chicken recipe looks really good and easy too. Definitely sounds like a nice low key dinner option. I had to giggle about putting a whole stick of butter on it, but I have to admit that I love butter in cooking, so I'm sure it turns out delicious.

    Lynn - YUM, crumb topped baked tomato sounds amazing! (Can anyone tell I'm hungry, since all I want to talk about is food?) I like to make a side dish where I slice up a tomato, top it with pesto and parm cheese, and then broil for a few minutes. I bet adding panko to that would be really good! How do you do yours?

    AFM - I did not make my Mustard Something Chicken. Aaaaargh! I forgot that Tuesdays are Swim Lesson day, so by the time we get home it is already after 6:30, and then I have to get T in a bath before bed, so we rarely cook on Tuesdays. LOL I feel like I am NEVER going to get to use my new kitchen. Tonight! I will make it tonight!

    I have a drs appt today at 3:30. It's not an u/s, so it probably won't be terribly exciting, but I'm happy that they are keeping such a close eye on me.

    Yay, Good Luck! I can't remember, did you used to go to the ROC?

    However, the reason I'm posting is because it's 926 in the morning and now I want beef stew, grilled asparagus, fish, salad and ramen noodles.

    Actually - I love asparagus. DH won't touch the stuff. So, like...three weeks ago, I roasted some with olive oil, salt and pepper...and ate the entire bunch. I was SO SICK the next day..omg it sucked so bad. It was sooooo good though!

    What a cute pic of T riding a horse!
    Welcome!

I just have not been into sweets lately. Using taco filling for the calzones sounds like a great idea. Oh man....I still want some tacos...lol.
    Thanks, Day 1 did go well. Day 2 still went well, but I was supper tired.

    LOL Jina, I have no clue what they are going to do. I think just a general check up? I don't know, I guess I'm just glad he's paying close attention to me. LOL

    Bonita - I bet it's very tiring until you get back into the swing of things. What did you do today?

    We started out with the Pledge. Then we worked on memorizing a verse they needed to know for church. After that Alyssa sat at her desk while I worked with Brianna. She counted to 100, said her vowels, and sang the ABC song. Then she worked on her papers while I worked with Alyssa. She counted to 100 froward and backwards. Then counted by 2's to 100. She also counted money. After that they worked on their own for awhile. Then I listed to Brianna read and read to Alyssa out of her history book. She took an open book test on the history that I then had to grade. After they were done with their seat work we made puppets complete with yarn hair and wiggly eyes. Alyssa also practised the piano, read a chapter in Little Woman, and did some math practice online.

    I was going on very little sleep because I waited up for DH to get home from work last night at his part time job. He did not get home until almost 12:30 AM and the girls were up and ready to do school at 7:30. So I took a nice long nap this afternoon. I woke up with a fever so I am taking it a little more easy tonight.

    I posted the pictures of our first day on the homeschooling board if anyone wants to peek at them.

    Awww Bonita, those pictures were darling! What cute little girls you have! Also, I was impressed by how "professional" your set up looks. It's obvious that you take your girls' schooling very seriously.

    Jina - I FINALLY made Mustard Something Chicken for dinner tonight! And it was as good as I remember! Felt sooo good to eat a real meal again off of real plates.

    Had my OB appt today. We just kind of talked through all of my b/w tests and the results of the u/s and made sure we were on the same page about my medications and everything. Then he offered to do another u/s in two weeks simply to put my mind at ease since 8 weeks has been my "danger zone" with the last 2 losses. So I have an u/s on Monday, and then another one two Wednesdays from now, and then assuming everything is going the way it should be, we'll probably get on a more normal schedule. I love my OB that he is willing to do an extra u/s just to make me feel better.

    Also, because of the spotting on Sunday, I decided that I need to take it easy for the next little bit. I haven't used much vacay time at all this year, so I took Thurs and Friday and then all next week off for the express purpose of laying around and watching movies and slack a$$ing around. So as of right now, I am on vacation!!!! Whoop!!!

    Bonita, love the pics! Your girls are adorable! Wow...sounds like a very full day of fun and learning. I hope you are feeling better today!

    Alissa, yay! I bet the chicken was like the most delicious thing ever! haha! Yay for extra u/s. Isn't it an amazing feeling to know that your OB really has your best interest at heart? And as much as I hate ultrasounds, it was really reassuring to get weekly scans. Woohoo for being on vacation!! I think it was the right call. lol...I seriously put myself on bed/couch rest for like 6 weeks. I didn't want to take any chances....though, I think I went a little over board. Anywho, maybe I can keep you company here and there by chatting!

    AFM, shoot! Hubby's B-day is coming up in 2 1/2 weeks and I have no idea what to do. I seriously haven't had anything else on my mind but this pregnancy. I think I might get him a nice pen or something. I don't know....yikes. Oh and he starts his classes back up ON his birthday. Boo! He took the summer off and it sure was nice.

    What is everyone doing for lunch today? Haha...it seems like I'm always asking about food. I'm starting to get hungry but nothing sounds appealing.

    Thank you. I am feeling better today. After I got the girls done with their lesson, I let Daddy take over so I could go to the store. I went to the used book store and to the Hobby Lobby to do a little early Christmas shopping. Plus I am excited it is raining for my garden.
