Melodious Music

Here's a sampling of some music that has helped me get through the last few days.

Meaghan Smith - Here Comes Your Man

Angus & Julia Stone - Big Jet Plane
  I wanted to post the music video, but YouTube wouldn't let me...
  so, you're just going to have to watch it here. I think the girl is
  channelling my soul  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFTvbcNhEgc&feature=list_related&playnext=1&list=AV4oVf-d_DwKAslvJyjclszx6VD_gc7Y_2

The Weepies - Be My Honeypie

Olin & the Moon - Not in Love


Lunch Prep

As many of you know we have been trying out a meal planning service called Make 5 Dinners in ONE Hour. I will admit that I have fallen off the meal prep wagon in the last couple of weeks. We have all been sick, our weekends haven't gone as planned, blah, blah, blah. But... I still believe in the plan and am reminded daily at supper time just how nice it was to have my meals waiting in the fridge for me. I've passed the word on about the plan and have a few other people loving it too.

Lunches are still a bone of contention though. I was just thinking the other day about how much I hate packing lunches and I only have 1 to pack. In a couple of years I will have to pack 3 lunches! Yikes!!! I know that there has to be a better easier way than how I do it right now, but I have seriously lacked the ambition to try and figure it out. Then today, TA-DA! I was checking out Michelle's blog, Make 5 Dinners in ONE Hour, and she had a couple of posts dedicated to lunch making. Thank you, thank you, thank you! She has some awesome ideas posted that will hopefully encourage me to do something similar.

Now, if only there was a trick for making your child actually eat his lunch and not stash it in his locker instead...

Lex Land

I love music that is off the beaten path. Thanks to a new reader, Lilolu (Jackie), for leaving both a comment and the advise to check out Lex Land. I'm so glad that I did! Her voice is sultry and smooth and she makes me wish that I was enjoying her in a hot, smoky club somewhere.

I grabbed the link to her music player off of her website for you. I recommend that you give Could've Had Me a listen.

Overheard From the Back of the Van

The Mr. told me the funniest story about driving the boys home today.

They were driving along behind a truck and there was a burning oil smell...

Mikah:  Ew! what's that smell??? Is our van making that smell?
Mr:  I hope not
Mikah:  Did our van fart?
Lukas:  Our van doesn't even have a bum!
Mikah:  Yeah, but it has a gas hole!

This stuff can't even be made up.
