Well this is day two and my daughter doesn't want to budge on putting her toys away. I asked her a few times if she was ready to clean up or if she was ready to get her toys back and she looks at me thoughtfully and say no not yet mommy. Really I feel so bad about this but at the same time I am telling my self if we go through 1 week with no toys but get 18 years of compliance out of her then that will be great. The one thing though that is so weird is that she has never in her life been so calm and happy as she has the past two days with no toys. It is crazy! I hope you ladies are having a great week if you have ever expierienced this before share your story!

I know this is a silly title but that is how I am feeling today. My daughter has decided for almost a week that she doesn't want to clean her room. Which normally I just shrug it off and eventually d it myself. Well not anymore and after her screaming at me for an hour this morning that she didn't want to clean it. She officiall has no toys in her room I took everything that was on her floor and threw it away. (Well put it intrash bags and stuffed it away where she can't find it. We had a little fireside chat and I let her know that she would not get to watch tv all day since she didn't have toys she can either read her books or she can sleep and then of course part of th day we will be learning so that is taken care of. It was probably the hardest thing for me but I know I have to do it for her to know I am serious and I am not going to argue any more I am just going to do it. Well ladies we are getting back to scool now I will have pictures later on my homeschool blog.

Well it has been really crazy around here my son had a terrible temp thursday, 104, took us almost 24 hours to get it to break and man I have never been so happy to check on my sleeping little one and to find him in a pool of sweat. I just said praise the Lord he is better. I guess I should start by saying that the kids and I do not have insurance right now so it is stressful when one of them is sick. Well sat my best friend called and she was taking her little ones to the urgent care and yes they both had strep along with two other kids at church so yeah we were exposed 4 times and so I had to take my little one in on sunday morning, and yes we have strep, now I am sick and can hardly swallow, although my friend got me some antibiotics from her vet clinic it is the same thing you take as a human but cheaper. Now my daughter is complaining about her throat and we are out of money and she needs to see the doctor. It deffinantly has been a manic day! week! weekend!

These are our yummy strawberries, we have been so blessed to have fresh strawberries many days this week. The children have loved when I bring them in they stand at the sink while we wash it off and I hand each one a couple of strawberries. Also we are so blessed to have such yummy fruit that is completely pesticide free.
Okay this isn't really food but a couple of weeks ago my aunt was getting rid of some things that she had that were my grandmas that she had never used and she had this amazing gaget, (and oh how I love gagets). If you don't know what it is it is from pampered chef and it is an apple corer, slicer, peeler, it does it all at the same time and my kids love having apple rings now. I love pampered chef so much altough this is the only thing I own, I have used some of my family members things like there stone pans and pizza sheets and they are awesome!
Okay this is not from our garden but will be soon as we have many jalapenos growing. But I made a batch of Chocolate chip scones and a batch of jalapeno cheddar scones. So delicious and you may say how can you let your children have choclate chips for brakfast, but my take is if we can go to the store and buy doughnuts full of sugar, fats and all sorts of yucky stuff with tons of icing, surely my kids can have homeade chocalate chip scones with semisweet chocolates. We got a fraction of the sugar in these as compared to doughnuts.
Well ladies I hope that everone has something to be thankful for in your life right.

So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Well ladies it has been a crazy week, and it is almost over can you bellieve it! My husband is suppose to get home tonight although it is looking as though it will be way after the kids are in bed because he has not even left Houston yet. This has been a good thing in a way though because I really wanted to b able to have the house all in order and spick and span when he got home. I know how it feels when you come home to a perfectly clean home it is so relaxing. So anyway I have been able to get a lot done I was behind on my laundry and I am almost caught up. ( I get behind because it takes my dryer 2 to 3 hours to dry sometimes, we need a new one but that is a large chunk of change that will have to wait for) and then I unloaded, purged and reorganized our master closet, changed the sheets and cleaned up the room in general. Down stairs got pretty well cleaned now all that is left is putting away clothes and cleaning the kids areas up. I say this because I know how cleaning and keeping our house neat is a never ending battle and so I thought w might need a little encouragement today, I know I do! Have a great rest of the day ladies and as my little one says give them snuggles!
