"We have received baptism, entrance into the Church, and the honor of being called Christians. Yet what good will this do us if we are Christians in name only and not in fact?" ~ St. Andrew Kim Taegon
Happy Schmappy Thursday.
What do you do when bad news looms.. you know, while you are waiting for the sunshine to pop out from under the raincloud?
Me - I clean. Cook. Bake. And this week, I am so happy to be taking part in the Pantry Challenge. It's saving my sanity.

The Odds are... my husband will be fine. But I am scared. I can't give details this publicly for now.... but they are scanning his brain. HA! I will keep you posted.
My small successes...
1) We are doing very well on the Pantry Challenge. Have not even spent $75 on dairy/produce. We are trying new things. We are really enjoying being in the kitchen together. GO US!
2) My husband and I went on a date this past Saturday. We rarely do that. IT was awesome. This is a huge success because we rarely leave Christopher with anyone. We are blessed with good people in our lives.
3) We played Sorry and I won. Ok - I know what you are thinking... SO WHAT! HA.. I never win. So it's a success I tell you.
4) I grounded my son from the Xbox and meant it. Ok - again, not impressive in your world, but he's GOOD ya'll.... at manipulating his mama. I love him... but still.
I am sure there are way more small successes. Like, this week I didn't cut myself with a sharp kitchen utensil, but I have to go clean my kitchen before I go to bed...
Oh - and another success, getting this post done. You're welcome!
Hugs & Blessings,
