this week

To say I have had my hands full has been an understatement.
My two new foster kids are a handful and then some. They both have huge aggression problems, coupled with their behavior issues. Well, its been interesting.
On a more positive note, my husband was approved to go to school spring quarter. So, with any luck he will be done the end of July! He just wants to be done with school. He will be home for a week in April. I have to begin my honey do list, lol.
Yesterday the boys and I cleaned out the garage. I put some stuff on freecyle so we'll see if the people show up like they said they would. We cleaned out enough stuff to by a work bench. My kids ( and hubby when he returns) will now have a space to work on projects. They boys need a space to work on their rc cars. They were working on their cars on their beds, which did NOT work for me. The boys seemed confused why I was upset about them setting objects that had been out in the street in the same area they sleep in.
I think my next project will be to draw up plans for a new shed out back. I want one with a loft. One of my long term goals ( the end of the summer) is to have the shed built and the side of my house organized outside.
I bought a new stove. I am so excited about it. It has 5 burners.
Here is the picture

It has a 17,000 BTU burner which makes me super excited. I figured it will be a bit easier with canning to have a larger burner. The oven is a convection oven. I have not cooked with one before.
It should be here Friday.


  1. Hurray for a new oven! How exciting!

    Good luck with your new kiddos. I hope they are able to calm down a bit!

  2. Nice stove!
    It is nice to meet you.
    Blessings :-)

  3. Sorry to hear about the new foster children. Sometimes it can be really tough.
