2 Things That I Need

September has been a whirlwind of activity. I am pleased to say, though, that the kids seem to be at least somewhat enjoying school and we have been keeping up with the pace that I set in the beginning.

This month I have been driving Lincoln to all of his speech stuff, and the older boys have their photography class. In addition I have been volunteering full days at the co-op. That is all over this week though, and then- oh the extra time we will have!

But, through this month I have discovered what I need to have daily:

1. hot chocolate
2. 4 pieces of toast with butter, peanut butter and jelly

Otherwise I am just so sad.

I tried to give up butter- I had decided it would save both money and calories, and so it seemed like a win-win. Only I lost. I had no interest in my breakfast, I didn't look forward to the start of my day- so I went back to the butter slathered toast. Now I am happy.

And my hot chocolate. I am not a morning person, nor am I a coffee drinker. Hot chocolate and a hot shower (not at this same time though!) get me going in the morning. No matter how expensive Swiss Miss is, I will not be leaving it anytime soon.

Well, I am off to do some studying and to read a little. I am reading "Heaven is For Real". I was skeptical, but I am really liking it so far. Good night!

I was chatting to my 1 year old as I prepped dinner last night with her on my hip. I taught her that butter makes everything better. Then I threw a stick in with the freshly drained spaghetti and we watched it start melting. Mmmm
By the way...the word verification below is "parti" HA!
