One day at a Time

UPDATE: I’m not sure why you’d be interested in the play-by-play of our day, but I thought I would share…

Andy decided to help (well after my meltdown, but we won’t speak of that).
-Laundry is *mostly* done.
-All dishes are done
-floors have been vacuumed
-The mop bucket is waiting in the kitchen.
-Dinner has been cooked and eaten (BBQ chicken, corn, mashed potatoes).
-1 bathroom is spotless.
-1 trip was taken to the grocery store by DH (out of brown sugar).
-Apple crisp (WW!) has been made (for homegroup tomorrow night).

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
7 medium Granny Smith apple(s), peeled and sliced
1/3 cup apple cider
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 sprays cooking spray
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Combine first four ingredients in a blender or food processor; pulse four times or until crumbly. Set aside. Combine apple and next five ingredients in a large bowl; toss gently to combine. Spoon apple mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with crumb mixture. Bake at 375°F for 40 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm. Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 3⁄4 cup).


Laundry is *in process* in the basement.

*Some* dishes have been washed.

Two bathrooms desperately need to be cleaned.

One dinner needs to be cooked.

And yet….you will find me in my scrapbooking room. Andy gave me an early birthday present (Sept. 7th if your interested – send cards and gifts) this weekend and I LOVE it. The Cricut. A personal die cutting machine. What more could a girl ask for?

I’ve been on a scrapbooking hiatus since around February. We’ve had way too much going on with youth group and church to even think about scraping anything. And this summer was WAY too hot to be stuck inside. I’m happy to report though, that i’m back! Fall is here and I couldn’t be more happy.

Ok…off to make dinner.



  1. What more indeed! I too have a mountain of laundry, a hungry husband and rooms that need cleaning. I do not have a scrapbooking room to hang out in!

  2. Come on over!
