Florida Bound to a Gymnastics Competition!!

I am going to Florida for a few days with Tara, my oldest daughter and two of her girls.  My granddaughter, who is seven, is competing in a gymnastic competition.  She takes lessons and is on a gym team.  They practice three hours every night after school.  She just loves it!!  It is amazing what she has learned and can do!! 

I have not flown for years and not sure even what I can take or not take.  I am on the Internet trying to see if I can find a list.  I just looked at the weather and it is suppose to snow on Thursday and that is when we are leaving.  Oh gosh, I hope this won't be a problem.

I have been trying to figure out some things to cook for my husband to eat while I am gone.  I made spaghetti yesterday and I made up three plates for him and froze them so he can just pop them in the microwave.  Tonight I made a yummy soup and I filled three bowls up and I am sticking them in the freezer.  Tomorrow morning I will take them out of the freezer and remove them from the bowls by setting them in a bowl of water.   They loosen up very quickly and then I just wrap them up.  Then all he has to do is pull one out of the freezer and put it into a bowl and stick it in the microwave.

My husband said, I am making things to easy for him.  He said, he would appreciate me more if he had to fend for himself.  Sooo, I guess I am not going to worry any more about him.  He needs to miss me a little!!
Here are some pictures of the soup that I made and how I wrapped them up.  This is a great way to save leftovers for a rainy day, or a day when you are just to busy to cook.

Now I had to get very specific with Dave that he needs to put the frozen soup back in a bowl.  I could just see him microwaving the package and soup all over in my microwave.

  One time I had to go away and I had my pressure cooker cooking on the stove.  I asked Dave if he could turn this off when the timer rang and he said sure.  Well the timer rang and he did exactly what I told him to do, he turned the timer off.  When I got home, my pressure cooker was still cooking.  Luckily I had soup in it, but there sure wasn't much left, it all cooked away!  This is one thing you don't want to do with a pressure cooker, it could of exploded!!

He aways says he did just what I told him to do!  Now you know why I need to be more specific!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Weekly Schedule Calendar!!

Good Morning Everyone, I am up bright and early, as usual, and I saw this really cool calendar to hang up.  I copied it for my refrigerator.  As you know I watch my grandchildren and with seven my calendar is always full with basketball games, birthdays, girl scouts, gymnastic meets, etc.  I also have to keep track of when I am babysitting because it varies from week to week.

This is really nice and big also, so it holds all of the information that I need for the upcoming week.
I thought surely someone else could use this.  Kids and families are just so busy these days!  Enjoy with the link below!!

Over The Moon is offering this calendar and it does come in different sizes!
Thank you Over The Moon!!
