Menu Plan, week of July 17th

Shortly after I moved, one of my friends asked me when I was going to make a menu plan again.  “After I finish unpacking,”  was my reply.  However, wandering the aisles of my new grocery store (I love you, Seven Mile!) with considerably less focus than usual was not super pleasant, or productive. Cue heroic… Continue reading Menu Plan, week of July 17th

Parenting is really gross

Warning:  this post contains a high level of gross!  Proceed at your own risk. I am not easily grossed out. I like it when my husband gives me gory details of some procedure he did at work. I flip through the pages of his medical journals and don’t wince at the pictures of who-knows-what.  I’m… Continue reading Parenting is really gross

Around the Web and Pictures of the Week

[Amusing sidenote:  I wrote this on Friday and totally thought I published it.  Not sure what happened there.] Well, it’s really crunch time now.  In less than two weeks, the movers are coming.  I’m trying to tie up loose ends and get everything in boxes, etc. So, I’m feeling a little blah about doing a… Continue reading Around the Web and Pictures of the Week

May Menu Plan

Well.  It’s the beginning of the month again, which means it’s time for menu planning!  Last month I didn’t post my plan because we were out of town for eleven days, and I kept having that nagging feeling that it’s not good practice to advertise extended absences (not that I have much to burgle anyways,… Continue reading May Menu Plan

Redefining Homemaker

Some of you may be aware that I’m a fan of traditionalism in marriage, and that I can be a little old-fashioned at times.  After reading my friend Chavi’s guest post, I realized that even though I do think that the traditional model has a lot of merit, I don’t fit quite so neatly into… Continue reading Redefining Homemaker

Torah Tuesdays: Making a Mommy

I once heard a story about a Mommy who shut herself in her kitchen in the morning.  When her children knocked on the door, wondering what she was doing in there, she replied, “I’m busy making a Mommy in here!” Mrs. Miryam Swerdlov says it in last week’s Binah magazine, when she was talking about… Continue reading Torah Tuesdays: Making a Mommy
