sorry, it won't rotate
a couple things i've added are the monthly menus that i create, essentially i put on the calendar any evening or weekend activities and print it out, then i pencil in my dinner plans. i try to do the whole month, but sometimes i only get 2 weeks at a time done, and i have to work my way through. i've been doing this for about 10 years (+/-) since it allows me to plan means for those evenings when we need something quick. when the boys were playing baseball, it was not unusual for me to pack a picnic basket and eat our dinner at the ball field. i have a feeling that when andrew leaves for school this will be used mostly on the weekends. it also really helps with the grocery shopping and cooking enough stuff to carry over into another meal. i thought it would be fun to include this in the PL album, as i normally just throw it away. on the other side is my weekly 52 lists that i get each week from mooreaseal. i'm getting better collecting bits to add, like this article
it's about the bizarre blizzard of 1993, i had hoped to find this is the printed newspaper, but instead i had to print it out. i recounted our experience on the back side as this was the year i was pregnant with pj, and we were stuck in the blue ridge mountains with no heat or electricity for several days, not fun on a regular day, but even less so when there are 3 pregnant women! i thought is was a timely addition to the album. now to the lesson-sophie spent 3 hours with the groomer the other night. i knew sophie had high maintenance hair, but it was until this grooming session that it was fully explained to me how high maintenance it was. she MUST be brushed/combed every day, when she is washed she has to be blown dry and BRUSHED! she has the equivalent to very very curly human hair, and the idea is that it needs to be straightened in order to be manageable. sophie's aunt mary i'm sure can relate! so, hopefully we'll be able to keep this style going, and maybe a tad shorter during the summer. i wish i'd taken a photo of the amount of hair that was cut off. the groomer uses both clippers and scissors to complete the grooming-wow, i had no idea, but i do now!
