Good morning!  There is some light snow falling and I am glad I have no where to go today!  I am working on a month of meal plans and trying to incorporate more greens and oranges into our diet.  I have the winter blahs and am hoping some bright food colors will help!   I spoke to DH about how hard winter is for me and am insisting we go on a winter trip next year-thinking cruise-to somewhere warm. 

Zeph made it into the Regionals for the HIstory Bee and is vey excited.  He already sees himself winning the finals. There will be 120 kids seeded by scores for the next part.  If there is anything we have learned from past competitions (karate, swim, geography bee) luck of who you are up against plays a big part of the outcome.  My part is to keep him realistic and encourage him at the same time.  I  still have to go throgh the rules and scoring to figure out how that works.  I ordered 2 more American history books  to bring him up through the 1990s as we as an a Cram For the AP European History Test book.  I am going to readjust our typical school schedule to accomodate all of this extra history reading.  Plus he needs time for the documentaries and audio books still to come.

Not much else going on today besides typical housework. 

Breakfast wass broccoli cheddar quiche with fresh mango, lunch is roast beef sandwiches with spinich/tomato/cheese, apples and carrots.  Dinner is grilled chicken breast with gnocci/polenta/peas/kale in a light marinara sauce.

Thanks for hanging in there ladies! I know the boards have been a bit more frustrating than usual lately!! If you are having any problems that I can try and help with, you can either head over to the help board, http://www.ivillage.com/forums/ivillage-women/around-ivillage/ivillage-help or feel free to email me at tracy20745@aol.com. As for today, busy morning already. I have a bunch of projects to work on today. Not sure about lunch yet, we'll see how things go. I left my smoothie on the counter this morning when I left. :0( No plans for this evening as of right now. Jordyn goes from work straight to the basketball game tonight. I am sure I have more paperwork for DH to do and we need to get the rest of the stuff around for the taxes to get to the accountant. He seems to be dragging his feet for some unknown reason and he is frustrating me! Not sure about dinner yet. Have a great one!

Good morning!  It is a better morning.  I am still coughing but feeling a lot better.  I am tired from lack of sleep, every time I cough I wake up.  So sometime today I will squeeze in a nap I hope.  I have the kitchen almost squared away.  It got a tad cluttered while I was sick cause no one cleans it up like I do.  I hate a cluttered kitchen.  I hate working in a cluttered kitchen I should say.  I bought a large bag of bread flour and finally have it poured into plastic containers.  I might make some coffee cake in a bit.  It's a long process but I want some so bad and so does Tim.  LOL   I plan to vacuum our family room, pick things up in here.  I also will be doing a load of towels since the hamper has gotten a tad full.  Nothing going on tonight.  

Dinner tonight might be pork ribs if I can get them in the oven soon enough.
