Sweet and Sour Chicken

I am still searching for meals my kids will eat. So far we have spaghetti, tacos, quesadillas, and chicken adobo. Tonight I am going to try Sweet and Sour Chicken from a recipe I found on Disneyfamily.com. It has soy sauce, ketchup, and sugar so it can't be too bad.

I have to cook 2 pounds of chicken because it is getting more and more difficult to have enough food for my kids. Ever since I weaned Eli, he has been eating like a pig. I think Eli eats more than anyone else right now. He eats waffles, apple sauce, and anything that I happen to be eating. He loves to beg his father for food the most though. I think Eli does it as a way to bond with his daddy. Eli is 20 months old now and can pretty much eat anything.

Another boy that is getting older is Jon who just turned 9. Jon still loves Star Wars, a life long love that began when he was 1 year old. Now he collects Star Wars the Clone Wars Lego Mini-figures. He even makes custom mini-figures. They entertain him for hours. He also loves to read Rick Riordan books and mythology. That makes me happy because I also love mythology. Since mythology can be "R" rated it is nice to have them kid friendly in Riordan's books. Jon still does gymnastics and is doing well. He is excelling in parallel bars and rings.

Viki recently turned 11 and is loving her new iPod Touch that she got for her birthday. I now can enjoy her Facetime! She is obsessed with Smallville right now. She is currently on Season 2. She also loves Rick Riordan books and has read all of them. She still enjoys her friends and helping out at church. She loves baking and taking care of little children.

Aron still has some behavioral issues at home but is doing great at school. I am still trying to get him more disciplined. He is a very good reader but for some reason does not do well on his tests at school. I love to talk to him about his day and to read the Hobbit to him before he goes to bed.

Right now I am still obsessed with the Middle Ages and would love to be a professional Medievalist. I am reading Montaillou  a book about 14th century France. My heart is still in the 13th and early 14th century.
I still love genealogy and would love to somehow combine the two obsessions together.

Well, this is my life- on to cook Sweet and Sour Chicken!

I Am a Yield Sign

Yeah, girls, it is my honesty time. I am now like one of those people in a reality show in those confession rooms ready to tell all!

I am embarrassed about this usually but I think I should share. I am a size 12 but my chest is about a size 16. Yeah, honey, I do not have a problem in the chest area! However, what most people don't think about is that a big chest does look fat, otherwise they are more than likely fake. I have big arms and shoulders to hold up my 36D's. Another problem with these things is that my back aches and cleavage shows in almost every shirt. I would have been a goddess in the 1950's but now I look like a cow!

I have an inverted triangle body type. I am wide on the top but have small hips and no butt. My legs and arms are skinny and bony. It is not the most attractive body type and most clothes were not made for me. When I lose weight I lose it in my butt first. I have a great body for swimming. As I have gained weight I look more like an apple or a …

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs.

My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I ch…

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made.

It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of wast…
