1. We've found a renter for our house in NC. No, it's not a buyer, but it will help us pay the bills and take some of the financial pressure off my hard-working husband. Hopefully, in the next few weeks my successes will include a statement along the lines of "our renter moved in and we got our first rent check in the mail"
2. The house has stayed in (relatively) clean condition since we got the holidays put away. Yes, we're still looking for places to stash all the new toys, but we're staying on top of the big stuff. What's the big stuff...well, right now it seems to be vacuuming up Cheerios that Nathan is dropping on the floor in his attempt to find his mouth and doing a thorough wipe down of the tables/counters after every meal since John has decided that he likes spices and sauces and tends to miss his plate when he dumps them out to taste them.
3. I've gotten back in the kitchen this week and I love it. We're eating at home more (better for our pocketbook and waistline) and really enjoying our cooking. So far this week we've had tilapia and yellow rice, pork chops and roasted potatoes, Chinese coleslaw, homemade salad, sausage and fried cabbage and I found time to make homemade salty snack mix. I really do enjoy cooking and I forget that when I get caught up in the day-to-day feeding of two tiny boys. :)
