...haven't blogged in a while...busy with kids...trying to do something creative everyday! Today we are going on a rock hunt and painting them. The kids have been getting up earlier this week....augh...what happened to 8:30/9:00??? Now it's 6:45 or earlier! Spencer actually got up at 4 AM the other morning! He took a 4 hour nap that day, though mama really needed one, too! So I am going to bed earlier...not looking forward to school starting again!
I know most of you probably don't care about the green updates...but for those locals that do...Raley's is starting to carry a lot of green products! Yay! They have a bunch of laundry detergents (though they are pricey) and body care (toothpaste, shampoo, lotions, etc). I went to the market by myself (ahhh...) the other evening and just browsed for awhile. (Sad that an evening at the grocery store makes me happy...).
I am also trying to eat healthier. I bought Jessica Seinfeld's book, Deceptively Delicious, a while ago and finally am trying the recipes. I made the chocolate chip cookies with chickpeas (or garbanzo beans for us Californians!). The chickpeas give it a nutty flavor and texture, though my boys didn't seem to like them much! We went to the park yesterday to play, and when I asked them if they wanted a cookie, they got excited. But when I pulled out my bag of these, they actually said, "No, thank you." Not a good sign! Tonight I am making tacos with soy protein instead of meat...shhh, Maddie, DON'T tell Joe! I will tell him....after dinner!
Sorry no pictures to share..need to break out the camera more...and Joe has been very good at uploading my pictures to the external hard drive, so I don't have them on the computer very long. Too lazy to hook it up to do it myself...told you I am tired!!!
