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.
Lynn, haha...glad I'm not the only one!
Alissa, Pirate Stew....that's cute! I really like that! lol I hope you get to use your kitchen tonight. Good luck at your appointment! What kind of appointment is it? Are they doing b/w? Maybe another u/s? Please KUP asap!
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?
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.
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.
