This Week in Review 43/52 :: This is What We’ve Trained For…

(This Week in Review is my NEXT attempt to squeak out at least ONE blog per week.  I WANT TO FREAKING WRITE again...It gets my heart going again. So let me try yet again.)

If there was a "Mom Boot Camp," this week would be one of the COUNTLESS scenarios we would train for.  Like, I should be the drill sargent for the next batch of women.  And HONESTLY, if this week would have happened to me a year ago, I would have lost my COOL!  But thank the SWEET LORD for my Decluttering Journey (mind & stuff alike)!

I have MASTERED the art of pulling NITS (<-- That would be LICE eggs) out of Joanna's hair.  A month ago, I bought Ruthie & Joanna Halloween costumes at Goodwill (SCORE!), proceeded to lose them (SUCK!), bought new ones, then found the old ones.  #winning  Ruthie progressed from a witch, to a mermaid, and has now landed on a SEA WITCH... aka a mermaid costume with the witch's hat.  She gets her creativity from her mother.  We are at a TIE with Joanna... it's cuteness OVERLOAD!  Pineapple OR Butterfly.  I can't handle it!

We started renovations on turning the storage area of Country Feed into the kitchen for a restaurant we are putting in, The Feed Store!  More to come on our adventures there... And we finally ended today with a sick kiddo, sweatpants & a cup of hot apple cider.  Sounds 1/2 way sublime.

Last little snipet before I breakdown the rest of the week... WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DINER FOOD?  Is it a particular dish?  Type of food?  When you walk in for dinner at a small town diner, what's some general expectations you have.... PLEASE give me your feedback in the comments...
