My Goals for 2019: Week 5 of 52

I am smashing out my goal to earn 10% more this year.  In fact, if my workload continues as it is now, I will earn well over 10% more this year.  Woot woot! However, that means that to find the time, a lot of my other goals are falling by the wayside. But I’m not […]

Freezer Cooking, February 2019, Session One Recap

Last Friday, I had a small freezer cooking session, and shared the process on Instagram. I like doing these small sessions on Friday mornings.  I just spent two hours, including clean up, making meals, so it was totally doable.  Plus, two of the recipes were slow cooker recipes, so that definitely helped with time management.  […]

I’ve Joined WW (Weight Watchers) – Chasing 141

I’ve struggled with my weight all of my life.  When my health started suffering and everything I ate seemed to cause a physical reaction, I gave up dairy, and then gluten, and then soy.  Finally, I turned to Paleo AIP.  That seemed to help my health issues, and I lost a dramatic amount of weight.  […]

Freezer Cooking January 2019 Part Two

Pulling meals from the freezer is working simply mah-vah-lus, darling, so I made a few more freezer meals.  I didn’t have a lot of time this freezer cooking session, so I only made a few meals.  I’m still stocked up on lunch meals, but I added one more for variety, and I also added several […]

How We’re Using SchoolhouseTeachers.com This Year

As I’ve mentioned, I currently have my kids in online, public school.  For one child, this is a fantastic option, and I hope that child continues on with this type of schooling next year.  For another child it’s an okay option for now, and I plan for this child to finish the academic year at […]
