Restored Excitement

I am feeling a bit better about things today, thankfully. I got a shower, dried my hair, threw on some make up and I feel more like a human being than I have for a few days. I'm afraid that Aunt Flo is on her way because I've spent most of this morning in a tizzy over what The Big Little One is getting into. Thankfully, his father took him to the doctor and I'm attempting to get some housework done.

I've been reviewing our budget lately and while we haven't been absolutely strict on it, I need to get a better grasp on our spending. We never over spend, but the majority of our budget is for food, diapers and bills. There isn't much left over, unfortunately. I'm going to go ahead and start cloth diapering The Little Little One A.S.A.P and start using the cloth ones I already have for The Big Little One more so that I can reduce our :gulp: $140per month diaper budget. Oy vey. It's disgusting that I LITERALLY throw away $140 a month. So, next paycheck I'm starting a stockpile of bumGenius 3.0 to use and wash. Thankfully, The Cloth Diaper Whisperer has a lot of tips and tricks for cloth diapering, and she's restored my excitement to do so!

Since I have such a great friend who informed me that I can play my 30 Day Shred DVD on my laptop, I will be able to start working out again today during naptime. That is, of course, if both kids should cooperate, which rarely happens these days. Maybe I should do it now that I noticed The Little Little One is dozing in her swing. Hmmm...

Tonight I'm making a new recipe that my mother in law introduced me to during our visit. It's really delicious and I'm serving it with a side of egg noodles along with corn.

WW Crockpot Chicken Stroganoff

1lb Boneless/Skinless chicken breast FROZEN
1 can FF cream of mushroom soup
16 oz FF sour cream (I'm using Light cause it's all I have)
1 envelope dry onion soup mix

1. Place frozen chicken in crockpot
2. Mix sour cream, soup and onion soup mix in seperate bowl and pour over chicken
3. Cook on low for 7 -8 hours

The chicken HAS to be frozen or it will (apparently) dry out.

WW Points = 4 per serving
