Playstation Move

This post brought to you by PlayStation(R) Move. All opinions are 100% mine.

Click HereImagine this....You're sitting at home with nothing to do. Ok, well you probably have something to do but none of it appeals to you. I mean, who wants to spend all day cleaning and working? Now, what if suddenly there was a ...*poof* and in front of you stood a genie who offered you the brand new PlayStation(R)MOVE? What would you use it for? 

If it were me, it would be used all the time. It would be great for those nights when I have the boys here and we're in the mood for some fun gaming. It would be great for those mornings when I want to sleep in. The boys could easily hook it up and have some fun while mom catches up on a bit of sleep. Plus, since it's a controller that works on body motion, it would be a great way to get some exercise while having fun. If you're like me, that's not something easy to find. The bowling game looks fantastic for all of these!

Now, I don't expect a genie to pop up and hand this to me, but if we owned a PlayStation 3, I'd seriously considering adding this to our system. At $99, that's less than a gym membership, a day at Cedar Point or the cost of a nanny.

(almost) Wordless Wednesday

Yet again, I'm behind over at Sunday Shutterbugs. However, today I found the perfect picture to handle both of the themes! This photo was taken over four years ago now when I visited England. Oh how badly I wish I could go back. I fell in love with the land over there and want to spend more time exploring places like this. This was taken in Hastings on a very foggy, rainy day but I never regretted getting soaked to the skin because I had the chance to see this. Oh, in case you're wondering, this week's themes are Rock and Rain. I wish we did more things like this with our resources and anyone who says to come in out of the rain has never experienced the pure joy that being in nature can bring.

Tackle It Tuesday

I soooo meant to post this last night and I have no idea what happened that I didn't do it. Yesterday was a good day around here. I got more cleaning done in the kitchen and started tackling the laundry monster that has been threatening to take over our house. It makes me smile and feel good inside to see things coming together and to actually accomplish things.

The big thing that I'm going to need to accomplish has started arriving. What is it? My grad school application. The department portion landed in my mailbox yesterday and it has me a little bit freaked out. I have no idea who to ask to write these recommendation letters. Ok, actually, I have ideas on who to have write them but I have to track down their contact information plus hope and pray that they remember me well enough to do these. I guess I'll know soon enough. I'm putting contacting them down on next week's to do list. At the same time as doing that, I'll need to be pulling transcripts from various schools. I need to call WMU again to find out if I should have everyone send everything to me and I'll send it all in one big packet or if it's better for everything to come directly to them. There is so much to this whole going back to school thing and honestly, it's freaking me out just a little bit. Well, little bits is how it's going to get done. They're far less overwhelming than looking at the whole thing.

But, for now, I have a washing machine that's waiting to be started and more cleaning/organizing/purging to be done!

Menu Plan Monday

9:47 PM 0 Comments
It's Monday and after looking at this week's weather, I can say that Autumn is certainly on the way. It's looking like a rainy, chilly week and honestly, I'm thrilled! I love this time of year. I love pulling out the crock pot recipes and making chili.  I know I could do that year round but something just always makes me wait until Autumn. This year isn't any different.

Sadly, the boys are back at their dad's and until I move into town, I'm on my own during the week. I'm trying to remind myself that it doesn't mean I can't eat good food too but it sure is harder to cook for one than it is for 3 or 4. Am I the only one who has noticed that?

Anyway, my menu for this week is going to include something a little special. My birthday is next week and Roger was really upset when he heard no one was going to be celebrating it. So, I've decided to have a little mini celebration this weekend for the three of us. Nothing extravagant, but something special for us.

Monday - Breakfast for dinner
Tuesday - Steak w/ veggies
Wednesday - Pesto Chicken
Thursday -  Pasta
Friday - Pizza
Saturday - Chili (w/ brownies & icecream for dessert for my birthday)
Sunday - Steak (I bought 2 and need to use them both up!)

Looks yummy! Now, I just need to stick with it!
