Our day here did not start out so well. For no real reason, all three of us were in a foul mood. There was much whining, complaining, crying, yelling and slamming of doors. Ugh. And then we had to go to Wal-Mart. I try to avoid this as much as possible, but today we just had to go. We only had to get one boring car seat, but it is just impossible to come out of there having only bought what you walked in for. So we came home with this...

And oh my goodness, it rescued our day for one crazy, kid freak-out hour. Eleven dollars well spent, even at Wal-Mart.

I'm Cooking: We had another boring pasta dinner here last night. I've been thinking a lot about our family eating less meat lately. I mean, how we need to do it. And how we don't. One or two vegetarian meals a week seems like a very good idea, and really not a big deal, even though we are all avid meat eaters. My first one is up tonight, and I'm excited. More on that tomorrow.


  1. Bubble blowers rock! Kids loved ours right to death last year :) I'm so excited that I will get to see some veggie recipes from you... I really need ideas. -Tracey

  2. I know Tracey, I'm just so used to making meat the center of the meal. But there are so many good recipes out there.
