Well, yesterday had its difficult moments.
I did go out to the store and spent some money on something business related, BUT….it was totally necesary.
What wasn’t necessary was the Subway sandwich combo that I needed because I had been very bad with my time and ended up with a major blood sugar low, BUT….I didn’t get it. I wanted to. OOOOOOHHHHHHHH! How I wanted to! I managed to resist by asking Jon how much lunch for the two of us would cost, and when he said $14, and I knew that I could go home and make $2 worth of soup for the two of us (plus baby) – well, we just drove home. I’ll admit, though, if I could have justified the expense somehow, I would have – and I was trying to figure out a way to justify it. I was trying REALLY hard!
I made it past that temptation and carried on with my day.
Just for posterities sake (and to get it over with)
Breakfast – Eggs and Toast
Dinner – Vegetarian Chili & Brown Rice
Breakfast – Eggs and Toast
Dinner – Veggie Stirfry with Chicken over Rice Noodles
Today we have to go and buy a birthday present for a 10 year old boy. I’ve already determined that we are going to Michaels with their 40% off coupon and getting a present for under $20 which means that it will be around $10 with the coupon.
Aside from that I don’t have anything on my Shopping List right now and so my total spent still stands at $34.17, and for us – that is pretty mch a miracle….even though it is only 4 days into the month….let’s see how well I’m doing at the end of the month.

I mailed out the first few orders yesterday – so a huge THANK YOU to all who bought. It feels amazing to have this working out. There are just 3 more days in the buy 2 get the 3rd (of equal or lesser value) for free sale – so if you were thinking of getting in on that deal…that was your reminder.

Yesterday was a bit of a rough day for Siah, he seems to be falling over quite a bit, and I’m not sure if he’s just getting more confident or if he’s fallen one too many times and I need to take him back to the chiropractor for an adjustment.
He really smacked himself up good yesterday. He was playing by the block box and bopped up and down and smacked his lip on the corner. Then he started screaming – A LOT! and the BLOOD….oh my goodness the blood. When I got close enough to check things out there was a split on both the inside of the lip and the outside of the lip and it looked like he had put his little razor sharp bottom tooth right through his bottom lip. NASTY!
So, it bled…he cried….I mopped up blood and tried to comfort him, but I imagine that it hurt brutally bad. You can see the bruise under or inside the lip all the way through from the inside to the outside. It looks awful, and if it feels as awful as it looks, is it any wonder that he was up as much as he was last night. Fun times, let me tell you, FUN TIMES!
He also managed to fall over and hurt himself about 4 other times yesterday, but just general bumps and hurts – nothing major like the lip. Poor little kid – or maybe I should say poor mother….he is seriously a crawling machine and it takes a ton of energy to just stay on top of him and to make sure that he hasn’t made it up on top of the fridge to get to the cereal boxes, eh Momma?
Well, I’m gonna go and started cutting up the potatoes to make our BIG SATURDAY MORNING BREAKFAST. We usually eat a big breakfast a bit late on Satuday mornings, and it is both breakfast and lunch. Today we are having hashbrowns, eggs and Farmer Sausage. YUMMY!
