It's been forever since I have been able to blog and I've missed it so much.SOOOO much has happened in the past 6 weeks!
My computer crashed and it took forever to be able to afford getting it fixed. My youngest son moved in with us until he goes off to basic in Jan 2011. Our oldest daughter has changed colleges and majors (instead of a vet she is studying to become a chorus teacher- which suits her more since she was in chorus all through school). High school started back for my youngest, she is a junior this year and is following in her older sister's footsteps and is now in Woman's Chorus Honors along with three other honors classes. My youngest son's car broke down so we had to buy him a new used car (can't afford a New New one). Now to work out all the little kinks in it so he can get in on the road.
I have missed Menu Plan Monday's so much and had actually stopped doing ANY menu planning since my baby boy moved in. I had forgotten how much a young man could eat! We have averaged between $250.00 to $300.00 a week! That is everything I make going for food every week!
I am contemplating going ahead and legally opening a family daycare. It would mean taking some classes, getting first aide and CPR certified, setting up a tax schedule, etc.... but, I think it would be a great step for me. I mean, I already have 5 toddlers between the ages of 17 and 22 months old! Just a thought I've been researching.
On the crafting front, I have started an afghan for my youngest. Just a Granny Stripe blanket in white, teal, purple, yellow and baby blue. She likes the colors so it's off and running! You can find the free pattern

Hoping everyone is well and happy!
