I have mentioned here recently that there has been a lot of stress in our home, especially concerning my husband's job. He was employed by our local newspaper as their sports editor. He held the job for over 8 years. Over the last year or so, his immediate boss has been making his life extremely difficult... accusing him of things he didn't do, hiding cameras and saying that Bill never turned them back in, searching through his computer when he wasn't there, etc. We both felt that she was trying to find anything in order to fire him. There was extreme lack of communication, etc. It got to the point, where there was workplace bullying going on and it was causing Bill to have mental and emotional stress. He was also being forced to work close to 70-75 hours a week on a small salary. (If he didn't cover something he would get written up, or told that this could cause him to be let go, etc.) This let to physical fatigue as well.
I love vegetables. My family loves most vegetables. But I find that I am getting in a rut when it comes to preparation of said vegetables. Added to the fact that our life has been crazy busy and it is a struggle for me to get dinner on the table in a timely manner when I am trying to feed the kids and hubby a healthy dinner. (Especially hard when I get home at 6:05 from work each night and am trying to get dinner on the table by 6:30 at the latest!)

I was so …
On Monday, I had the privilege to meet a fellow blogger. I got to meet "Sluggy" from DON'T READ THIS; IT'S BORING!. She and her hubby were gracious enough to come visit me, Bill and the kids in our town as they were heading back toward their home at the end of their month long, cross country road trip.
She is as genuine and wonderful in person as she is on her blog. My kids loved her and Ben told me that he missed her when she left!
We had a lovely visit and I got to hear several funny stories from their road trip and from her life. We treated Sluggy and Dan to a home-cooked lunch--- pasta bake, garlic bread and green beans.
After lunch, Sluggy gave us some treats....including shampoo from her toiletry stash and her homemade relish for my hubby. She also gave us a lightbulb from one of her stops in Idaho! She also gave me 2 books that I look forward to reading.
She also blessed the kids with some fun treats that she had picked up for them on her travels! They were so…
