The Beginning of the week from hell

Yep, Thanksgiving is in 3 days. And I thought it was going to be just my little family but then my dad said he was coming. So now my house has to be 'dad clean'. Which is slightly worse than 'mother-in-law' clean. I wish he had told me last week, then it wouldn't be so stressful!

Rachel and I were out and about today, picking up some bday presents for Mary and some cranberry sauce which for some reason I could not find at walmart. So it was a fun day.

Food I ate today
mcdouble and fries
no bake cookie
spaghetti and 2 meatballs
4 pieces of bubble bread

We're counting the days til the new little grandbaby hits the scene. But until then we have Bethany's baby she brought home from school--Everett. And it is very comical her responses to it. She gets flustered so quickly, especially when people are watching how she is going to handle all the crying. She is NOT happy about taking it to school tomorrow, but it is for a grade what can you do? It will be interesting to see how she handles it during the night. 

Man I had 8 babies. I remember how hard it was! And I had no help either. My husband didn't wake up at night ever. I was on my own. I really don't know how I did it all. Especially the last one, how in the WORLD did I homeschool and cook and take care of all those children! 

Dinner was really good tonight. 

I am noticing a difference in how my pants fit. 

Making wise choices be my new standard of living,

  1. Good job for making wise portion size choices!

    How did Bethany's "pregnancy" go? Pretty sure Everett is annoying the heck out of you all by now. I don't think I got up overnight with my daughter & her "baby think it over", [nor did she expect me to]. I did feel bad for her to have a rough night though. She did a great job.

    Odd that your Dad expects, or even cares if your place is spotless.? Curious which way 'worse' than MIL clean is? Cleaner?? My Dad will mostly care about the food! :) Enlist as much kid help as you can!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Laura!
