Back to School Countdown

I am working on some posts with 3 new non-sandwich lunch box original recipes.  I'll post them this week, but I need to fine tune a couple things before I do!  I've received some emails and messages about back-to-school lunches, so I'll be answering those questions too!

Until then, I have some news...

We're at one week and counting before school begins, so all the traditional back-to-school activities have begun; teacher assignments received in the mail, shopping for shoes, preparing for the PTO school supply sale and buy G a backpack. 

Oh, and one more non-traditional activity, we bought our first pets.

Want to guess what sort of pets we bought?

Would you like a hint?  How about two?

Their names are:  Captain Finny...

still no guess?

and Mr. Fish Fish.

Yes, we bought two fish.

G, and to a lesser extent, R, have been asking for a pet.  I went all-out and offered to buy some fish.

G wanted goldfish, R wanted a beta.  The fish store worker took one look at the 5 and 8 year old future fish caregivers and said, "how about some Danio fish?  They're really hearty." 

So, we have two new members of the Sweet Pea Family, happy in their kitchen aquarium.  I am hoping they'll understand the next time I cook seafood!

See that orange fish?  Introducing...Captain Finny.  Mr. Fish Fish was feeling shy.  Note to self:  taking pictures of fish is even harder than taking a family photo in which everyone is smiling...these fish move fast!

I call these fish "starter pets," when they aren't listening.  We'll see how R and G do caring for them and then move up the pet chain...

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
