On The Road Again?!

It seems I can never get away from stress. So we have been living at home since the first of December. It has been great. But job and money wise not so much. Derek has looked and talked to people about jobs local but nothing.  His hour and a half commute is rough. Not guaranteed hours and so on. So the choice on hand, back on the road. Where back on the road? Way to far away. Options being Abilene,TX, Nevada, California, and I can't remember where else. None driving distance on weekends back home. And a lot of the jobs Derek would be working 7days a week.  Tyler and me would be all alone most of the time. I'm just not sure if I could handle it. I am so sick about it. I know God has a perfect will for us. We just need to find it. The lord has answered so many prayers already. I can't express how thankful I am for his love. We sold the RV last night and it was just in time. I was in tears and praising the lord because I was in aw of the MIGHTY GOD we serve.

I'm A Big Kid Now?!

So it seems weird to be thinking about potty training before I even get Tyler off his pacifier. Or for that matter into his own bed.  But he has been showing more and more signs that he is ready. And is interested in it. When you ask him if he went he says yes and he is! Then he will lay down for you to change him. So any thoughts about it? It's crazy. I'm gonna give him a little bit more time then we will go buy him a potty chair. Who knows I may have him trained before his 2nd birthday which would awesome! Tonight we are starting him sleeping in his room. He already takes his naps in there. He seems very comfortable in his room. Plays in his room hours at a time. When you ask where Tyler's room is he will take you straight to it. So I hope that he is used to it and will take right to it.   He is growing up so fast. He will be 18 months this month. CRAZY! It's hard to look back at him when he was a baby=( Each day he is becoming more of a daddy's boy.*sniff*sniff He loves to play basketball and wrestle and run around the house following his dad. He wakes every morning looking for his dad. He will yell at the top of his voice DAD, DAD, DADDY!  Till I tell him he is gone to work. I love my boys.

I love trying new recipes and cooking. I cooked my first turkey for Christmas this year and it turned out real moist and good. Then for the new years eve party I tried out a couple other new recipes. Just last week I tried my hand at homemade biscotti. Super good and super cheap to make. Sunday I made some homemade bread. Can you say gain 20 pounds instead of lose!  My husband and I got into cooking together a few years ago and when we get the chance to do it, its sooo good. We have mastered PF Chang's chicken lettuce wraps! But for some reason every night weekly meals have been going bad for me. Meals I have cooked for years going the bad route. They just don't taste the same. I don't get it. What am I doing wrong. It's weird. Maybe I just need to change everything and do new meals all the way around. Of course it is harder to cook when you have a 17 almost 18 month old toddler to keep in mind.  Who is a picky eater at times.  Okay picky most times.  But yeah.
