Life is really hectic.
baby bean, at 10 weeks, still sleeps no longer than 3 hours in a stretch. I'm starting to wonder how long I can keep this up! Add in that all day long he wants to be carried around the house-- if I put him down, he screams- and I am one tired lady.
That said, I am trying to get in the habit of cooking, because we can't just eat take out forever. Well, we could, but..
So, I bought a crock pot, which has allowed me to throw random ingredients in, turn it on when beaner finally passes out at midnight, and then have at least something inexpensive and reasonably healthy to eat in the morning.
Note: I am looking for good crock pot cookbooks if you have any suggestions
So far this week: I've made one pot roast and tonight I am making a lentil bean/ Okra stew that my hubby is excited about.(I didn't tell him it was a mainstay of my diet as a 20 year old broke waitress.)
Also, the $6 strawberry patch I planted has yielded at least 12 quarts of berries so far, and I still have more to pick. You can't beat the ROI for homegrown organic fruit!
That said, I have done absolutely nothing for the tiki challenge this month.And, well, nothing in my actual freelance career lately. It seems that until that kid sleeps through the night, all bets are off!
