Coupons, Coupon, Coupons Everywhere!
A good friend of mine saves her coupons for me. She usually saves up a plastic bag full and then delivers them. I have been clipping coupons for about an hour and decided it was time to take a break. She also put a few magazines in the bag as well. I can't wait to look over them and pick out some new recipes to try! Speaking of magazines, I want to share my most favorite cooking magazine, Cuisine at Home Magazine. Here is the website: http://www.cuisineathome.com/ You can sign up on the bottom right of the screen for free weekly recipe emails. This is a great way to get new, unique recipes!
After my crazy day of working 8:30am-5:00pm, I went to pick up all four kids at two different locations. My kids were in a pretty good mood until we came home to just change clothes for swimming lessons and then it all went down hill from there! My 3 month old started screaming at the top of his lungs while I took the dogs outside, my 1 year old was walking around the house dragging toys everywhere , my 5 year old was not following directions about putting on clothes over his swimsuit (it is winter outside!), and my 7 year old decided she was going to sit down on the sofa to play the DSi, while I was trying to rush to get out the door. After swimming lessons it did not get any better. My kids got Sonic for dinner, because I was not going to worry myself with cooking since everyone was in a mood. I told myself to get that crazy thought of going to Sonic out of my head, but I just couldn't. After the kids ate, I bathed all 4. My 3 month old screamed because he was hungry and did not like having to lay, he wanted to be held! I finally got everyone ready for bed and my 5 year old decides to have another meltdown. Since he was screaming at me I told him he could not have a cupcake for dessert, and that caused an even bigger scene. Then my 1 year old decides to start crying with the other two and it was total chaos! I decide right then and there that it was time for bed at 7:10pm. I laid my 5 year old down, hugged him, kissed him, and told him I would be right back after I laid his sister down. I came back into his room at 7:15pm to snuggle and he was snoring. It's amazing how ugly a tired child can get! I finally got everyone in bed and sat down to eat a bowl of leftover chili and clip coupons while watching the Biggest Loser! I sure hope tomorrow goes better because we have Bible Study and Awanas going on after dinner...that reminds me I need to pull the pork loin out of the freezer for dinner tomorrow....
