This week... I have done very well this week. I decided that trying to make a menu at the beginning of the month and sticking with it are just not the right decision for me. I spend too much, change my mind, and then still want to get the deals at the end of the month when my budget is blown. So...I made a menu for the week, I printed off my trusty meal plan organizer here: , and went through my cabinets to see what I had and shopped for the difference. The thing I like about my meal planner is that there are no specific days for each meal--so, when my mind changes...I can feel free to pick out whatever meal I choose. (without ruining an organized plan)

The boys had colds last week and have been tired...and I am having surgery this week on the 8th...this is surgery number 4 since June and that means 2 babies and 4 surgeries--3 being abdominal. It is this point many of our friends are thinking about getting pregnant again and trying to decide when to "try". However, we are still recovering from the twins delivery and cannot physically even think about having another child until at least another 18months. And that is only the actual physical part...not to mention all of the other emotional stuff that goes with an OB injury of this extent and my husband having to take on all of the burdens of a sick and recovering wife. Hopefully though, my colostomy will be reversed sometime in March or April, once my rectum heals from this weeks surgery and then my body can rest.

The template for the menu is really cute. I need to get back into the menu planning. The holidays threw me off. I usually plan a month at at time. It works for me, but I have to plan lunches too since Dan is home 3 days a week.
I see your surgery is this week. I was going to see if you and the boys wanted to come over but I guess that'll have to wait a bit.
We'll be praying for you!
