Life in Adoption . . .

As a parent of children who were adopted out of Foster Care. I would like to recommend another blog. It is called Confessions of an Adoptive Parent, and has been of immense encouragement to me. I wanted to reblog a specific post, but couldn’t find a reblog button. So, I’m sending you to it here.

This post has been very helpful to me more than once, and I hope it will help you to see what parents like us go through. When you see a family like this, don’t judge them, be compassionate instead.

As always, I would just love it if you would join me in all of “My Journeys Through Life.” Just go to the subscription box at the top of the blog and enter your email information. After that, you will always know when there is something new happening. I hope to see you here very soon! -)

My Factory Original Parts Are Wearing Out!

You all know that I recently had a total knee replacement on my right knee. Plus, the left knee still needs to be done. And, I have cataracts. Well, now my left foot is bad, too! I have possibly a torn tendon, nerve damage, a definite dislocation, and may have to have a hammertoe redone! I’m telling you . . .

Getting old is NOT for sissies!

Freezer Meals!

As you know, we’ve been doing freezer meals for a while now. It has been the best thing ever! Now, there’s no more “oh, we forgot to check and see what we can put together for a meal, guess we’ll need to pick up fast food!” Why? because we can simply check what prepared meals are in the freezer, thaw and cook!

This is what we put together this time:

We made two of each recipe for the freezer, in less than two hours of work.

Here is “The Artist” browning ground beef for the Beef Burrito Casserole, which was the only -pre-cooking needed.

Shiloh thought he was going to get something, before we sent him away to play with one of the other boys!

Everything is done! Nine packaged up, and one made directly in the slow cooker and put into the fridge for Sunday dinner the next day.

Tomorrow night, we’ll be having Baked Cream Cheese Chicken, then we’ll start the rotation over again! Sometime next week we’ll be doing another prep. Looking forward to deciding what meals to make!

This is where all of my freezer meals come from, and it’s one of the best household expenses I’ve ever made! Check it out at MyFreezeEazy, I bet you’ll love it as much as we do!

Milestone Birthday!

My friends, this is what sixty looks like in my house!IMG_20170924_195933

Today is my birthday, but I actually went out yesterday for an early birthday lunch . . .

IMG_20180105_145356

Which was delicious! (yes, that soup is Zuppa Toscana  and the entree is Chicken and Cheese Piadina from Olive Garden, one of my favorite places!) I also went and got my nails done . . .

This is when I am warm . . .

This is when I’m cold!

I just love the color changing gel polish! They didn’t go all the way dark, because I just ran cold water over my hands to make them cold, and by the time I got back into the living room for a picture, they were warming up!

I have a post yet to do about Christmas, but really wanted to post this on my actual birthday.
