This week was busy with appointments and such. That seems to be our every week anymore (LOL) The biggest thing that happened this week was our daughter got braces. I don't know that I've ever seen a child so excited to get braces! She got them on Thursday and then went and ate a sub sandwhich :) She was sore the next day, but says today isn't so bad. She's had a busy few weeks with getting her wisdom teeth removed and now braces. I would be surprised if she wasn't sore (LOL)
I thought about school for next year, but haven't really done any planning. I really want to sit down with each of the two kids and find out what they would like to do this year. I want to have us work together a little to plan our year. My daughter pointed out that we don't have much more than a month to go before school starts. Every summer this seems to happen to me where I don't get anything done (LOL) I can say I've read a few good books this week though. That seems to be top priority for me lately! These are the books I read this week:
A Promise of Hope
$3 Meals (While I don't think these meals are $3 in this day there were a few good recipes I'm planning to try :) )
Return to Paradise
I did a little work in the yard/garden this week. One of the most exciting things was a super huge haul of green peppers out of the garden. I picked 22 green peppers this week. We have a ton of plants b/c my husband didn't realize the number I gave him was total plants and he bought 4-packs (LOL) I wasn't too upset because peppers are super easy to freeze, so that's our plan. I froze 8 peppers ready to stuff and the rest were cut up for things like chili and spaghetti. I'm hoping our tomatoes do well because I try to freeze enough until the following summer. Somehow my husband got the little tomatoes instead of the larger ones, so I'm not expecting much this year. It's still nice to have something though :)
