so, starting monday dave will be done with his gone-for-a-freaking-month trips.
HIP HIP HOORAY.
PRAISE THE LORD.
THANK YOU DEAR JESUS.
ahem. sorry. it's been a long few months.
but i have made it through these months...thanks mostly to the help my grandmother IN LAW, lucille. god bless that woman. and not just lucille, but my mom, dad, mother-in-law, sister-in-law and a few choice friends too. THANK YOU ALL OF YOU, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND I LOVE YOU.
but back to lucille.
she has been my crutch through these crazy months. she picks up hallie off of the bus everyday (except monday - thanks barb!) from school and keeps her until i get home with henry around 5pm. most days she will find a basket of clean clothes to fold, or cloth diapers to stuff or hallie's bedroom to clean.
god bless that woman.
and did i mention she makes us supper? everyday? yeah.
GOD BLESS THAT WOMAN.
luckily, i pay her back. she gets to do this as much as she wants:
and then see him do this:
i'd say we're even, dontcha think?
dave will be home to pick up hallie, which is great, but it means i will start needing to cook for our family. waaah.
5pm-ish is a tough time at our house. everyone is hungry, i have a baby on my boob and need to get hallie fed before starting the bedtime routine at 6:15. that's 1.25 hours to get dinner on the table. but first i have to nurse henry. always. nursing. henry.
so i need to get a GRIP and start using my crockpot more.
so, all of that to say...
GIVE ME YOUR FAVORITE (easy) CROCKPOT RECIPES.
ones that i can make up the night before, plug in first thing in the morning and have cooked to perfection when i walk in the door at 5pm.
