Bad Week

It's been such a bad week for me, I'm stressed out about various things, mostly relating to money and my hormones have been worse than they have ever been with my pms. I've been sleeping a lot. Normally I like to stay up late and play on the computer after everyone goes to bed, but I haven't been able to stay up very much past 9pm this week. I'm half asleep before we get both girls in bed, which is sad. and I have no energy, So I'll be glad when I get passed all of this.

Ashley had a bookfair at her school this week, She used money she'd been saving from her piggy bank to buy herself 3 new books. I'm so proud of her, You may remember she was held back to T-1 because she wasn't reading yet. The other night she sat at the table and read 37 pages of Dr's Suess Hop On Pop. I couldn't believe it!! Just in this short time she's come such a long way. I'm so proud of her. Her Teacher is wonderful, Ashley has always loved books, I knew she just needed the right person to help her.

I've been cooking at home all week, We knew we wouldn't have the money to eat out very much this week so I bought plenty of meals to get us thru to payday. So that means cooking everynight :) Here are a couple of things I've made this week posted to my recipe blog . .

I have a few more I'll try to get posted on there tomorrow.
Tonight Ashley and I are going to attend the meeting of another campfire group. They are learning safety sells and cents, so we're going to join in, This will help Ashley earn her Sells and Cents emblem.

I haven't been doing very much knitting, I'd like to get some hats and scarved started soon. But I'm unmotivated for all of that right now.

Until next time . . .

High five to Ashley for buying those books and I'm so proud that she's reading so much.
Wish I had those cookies...that might make me feel better. :P

I'm sooo happy to hear Ashley got the help she needed and is reading so well now!!!

I can fully understand how you're feeling and being tired. I hope it passes quickly!

I've been on vacation so I didn't get to read your post until today. I hope you're having a better week!

37 pages?! Wow! She's rocking the reading!

Cooking at home can be a pain but it sure does save money! Over time, I have found out that I actually prefer eating at home (and I NEVER thought I'd say that)!
