Monday Quiz #MQAM

Acting Balanced

1. Today is look up at the sky day - what does your piece of the sky look like today?

Currently sitting on my couch I can see the moon through my window. It was pretty cloudy here today and still is so won't get too much of a good view of the lunar eclipse.

Menu Plan Monday April 14/2014

This is a pretty busy week for us with all the stuff going on with school/work etc. Plus we just started taking sign language lessons again but now on both Sunday and Monday. It is also Nathan's Birthday this week so that means I will be making a cake and of course cupcakes for his class at school. So most of our meals are simple and easy to make this week.

Monday:  Chicken Salad rolls with fruit
Tuesday:  Whole chicken in crock pot with  salad and boiled mini potatoes

Menu Plan Monday February 17/2014

Here is hoping that we are not coming down with the flu now as my stomach felt a bit off tonight. Hence the quickly thrown together dinner of Tortellini, something that the kids love!

Monday: Tortellini with Alfredo sauce. Side of cucumbers for kids and sauteed mushrooms for adults. Not gluten free but quick and easy. I didn't eat much of it anyway.
Tuesday:  Tuna Curry with rice and peas. Substituted with rice flour to make it gluten free and evaporated milk since I don't have half and half on hand. I made this recently for a friend while her baby was in the hospital and even her pickiest child loved it!

Decorating with wall decals: Vinyl Disorder Review

Living in rental units we used Wall decals to spruce up the kids bedroom walls as it was a great non-permanent solution. 

I had always wanted to put up a wall quote in our bedroom but there were so many to choose from and I wasn't sure how difficult it would be to apply something with words rather than the characters we were used to putting up in the kids room.

The Kindness of Strangers

Mama's Losin' It

I am linking up with Mama Kat's Writers workshop. When I saw the prompt "A time a stranger helped you"  I knew that I had to share this story from when I was pregnant with Nathan, back in 2001.

It was Friday night, right around 6pm {this fact will become important later}.

I was 16 weeks pregnant.

A co-worker offered me a ride home and I asked to be dropped off at the shopping mall.

I stopped at McDonald's for dinner {darn pregnancy cravings} and at the grocery store for something.

I started off to walk home. I approached the cross walk and the light was green. I thought I had time to make it across as I had done so many other times. So I did not wait until I could press the button and cross on the walk signal {that never lasts long enough anyway}.
