I'm here as well. Still trying to work on the menu and grocery list for August. It's a very slow work in progress. But we're out of just about everything it seems. So I'm working on a list, looking for q's, comparing prices, etc. It's taking me a bit longer, but I'm hoping it'll be worth the extra effort. I am hoping to include more fruits and veggies too, and finding meal ideas my baby can eat too. And prep ideas, etc. So it's a lot more planning, but hopefully it'll be worth it. And hopefully we won't spend an arm and a leg either! I've just been working on it when I can, or writing down an idea when I think of it. I'll let you know if it is worth the time later..LOL!

I used my Pampered Chef credit from the virtual party I hosted recently, and got some items really cheap. I count the shipping in the cost since it's OOP, so it's not 100% free. But I got a cookie scoop, and tried it today making snicker doodle cookies. So far it works really well! I hope to make some chocolate chip cookies soon too! Yum!

Lol, Laura messaged me to say the new thread was up. Cause ya'll know I'd be wondering for days where everyone was and why weren't ya'll posting! Hahahaa.

Kids had 8am dentist appts. EIGHT-FREAKING-A-M! What on earth were they thinking? All our appts have been at 10/1015/1030. I wonder if the lady who always did my teeth (and our appts) retired...cause she wasn't in today and there was a new lady. Hm. Anyway, my dd ratted me out to the new hygienist when she asked dd about scheduling their next appta. Dd told her that mommy was NOT HAPPY with the early appt. Hahaha. Omg. The lady was nice and we had a good laugh over it. But this am was EXTRA HARD because I didn't sleep much on sun pm, so last night I took a pm med, and while I slept good....I was still sooooo tired when I woke. And grouchy. Whewboy! (Dh asked me tonight if something was bothering me cause I seemed mad all day. What?! Lol. I told him insomnia + pms is a bad combo!)

I had an appetite today...perhaps the trick is waking at freaking-six-thirty-a-m? (You'd never guess I spent yrs waking at 5....just those yrs that ds slept in the room above my bed, lol!!) I had a blueberry greek yogurt for bfast, leftover enchilada bake for lunch, and dinner tonight was porkchops, garlic butter smashed sweet potatoes, and jalapeno corn. All delish. Sadly, not much leftovers for tomorrow's lunch....nor for dh's dinner tomorrow. Oops. (Kids and I will be at our old church for their monthly wed worship service, and will pick up something while out. Dh will fend for himself.)

Other than being a cranky-pants all day, I listed a ton of books, cleaned a bit, did some laundry, and sat around bored cause I was too tired to.do anything much. The weather has been amazing the last few days....windows open in the am!!.....so I kicked the kids out for forever this am. They kept trying to come indoors. Grrrr. When I let them in at lunch, they started roughhousing. Outside....they sat quiet and read or drew. Really....you're gonna come indoors and be wild?! Yeah, cranky mommy came out a bit. But the kids were laughing, and so was I.

My dad picked me up and I was very extremely quiet. Finally he made the comment that he hadn't heard me this quiet since I was in my coma after my heart surgery. I said it's to early to be nice so I'm keeping my mouth shut.

Damionmom good idea with your meal planning. I hope it works well and you find your effort worth it.

Laurabeadle: Thank you for directing Jfred here, we would have missed her awesome posts for several days while she was wandering around the website lost.

jfred: We're happy that you found us. I just had a couple of days whereas I seemed to have an appetite all the time. Hope you slept better last night.

DamianMom: Hey, we're happy to have you join us for another month. Good luck with your menu planning. It is great that you are trying to add more fruits and veggies to your menu.

MamaS: Hey, we missed you for a while. It was great to see you jump back onto the board last month and start posting again.

The Pampered Chef ice scoop is a great item. The grill spatula is very large and has a long handle which is great for use on the grill. Pizza stone works, but wish I would have spent my money on something else. I have a few other Pampered Chef items as well, but my kitchen is not stocked with Pampered Chef.

The Pampered Chef products are expensive, but I don't mind buying something at a party, because they are heavy duty quality products that will last a lifetime.

So, how did that virtual Pampered Chef party workout for you?
