I'm not sure when the lasagna will get done. The recipe that I am using says that you can use either a 9x13 pan or 2 - 8in pans. I planned on using the 8 inch pans since 9x13 is rather large for our family. Well, the recipe also says not to cook the noodles. They are too big for the pan! Now I'm stuck. I guess I'll make a 9x13 pan and once I cook it we will have leftovers for another night.

I am starting to feel less nervous about this pregnancy as well. With KK I had preterm labor at 31 weeks. Every time I get a little pain here or ache there I start worrying that it is the beginning of labor. Now that I am at 35 weeks I am a little more relaxed since things are going well.
Piggy is offshore, hopefully he will be staying on land once he makes it back. I'm so nervous I will go into labor when he's gone. When he comes home I will have him take a belly pic for all to see! I can't wait until I can post pics of my little one!

So at the end of the day I didn't accomplish everything I had hoped. I'll blame it on Piggy, he decided today was the day to plant the garden and spring clean the backyard. We spent most of the afternoon outside pressure washing toys and planting seeds (snap peas and corn to be exact). I have a dr's appointment tomorrow morning. I am hoping to get the lasagna done when I get home. Tuesday I hope to get the breakfast hot pockets done. The pancakes can wait until this weekend.

Maybe it's taking us longer than usual to adjust but things still aren't running smoothly here. The kids aren't going to bed until after 9 and that makes for rough mornings. In our house rough mornings lead to rough days. It's a never ending cycle. The first day of the change my daughter accused me of lying to her because it wasn't morning when we went outside to wait for the bus.
It IS nice to be able to play outside in the evenings but I'm starting to wonder if the chaos is worth it?

1.) Re-build emergency fund. I say re-build because we had a small amount of savings but our refrigerator decided to go out on us today and we had to buy a new one. What a way to start off the new year! Not doing so great here. Something always seems to come up, new tires for Piggy's truck, new part for the stove, etc... We're trying!
2.) Have all debt except student loans paid off by December 2009. We're getting there, so far we have paid off roughly 72% of the debt!!

Piggy is working some weird hours the beginning of this week so meals will be simple since I get cankles if I stand for more than 10 minutes!
Monday ~ hot dogs & chili
Tuesday ~ homemade pizza
Wednesday ~ leftovers
Thursday ~ spaghetti (I cooked this a couple of weeks ago and put it in the freezer)
Friday ~ pan fried catfish and shrimp
I am planning a baking day for early April. This will help me to stock my freezer with meals and snacks for once baby is born. Depending on what the doctor says tomorrow this may get pushed up. I will post my planned menu once I have everything figured out.
