Organized? Really?

Before I had kids I was a neat freak, I was organized, I used a planner.
With 2 kids, one on the way, and a disorganized husband it has been a complete disaster.
I go to pinterest and search for organization ideas and found like a million blogs and I don’t know where to start.  I see one blog and I like that, then I see another and I like that one much better.
This is exhausting!
So I am going to go back to researching blogs while the hubby plays his war games.
Wish me good luck!

Mama Kat's Writers Workshop

She has a few topics that I want to discuss:
The Prompts:
1.) A blog post inspired by the word: modest
2.) 7 kitchen tips based on mistakes you have made in the past.
3.) Your favorite childrens book.
4.) Something new you’re loving.
5.) Something that is a challenge for you.
I decided to choose the kitchen tips based on mistakes since I love to cook and bake.
1) Cornstarch is never a replacement for flour unless you are thickening sauces
2) Foil on top of an old dark baking sheet will still make cookies burn on the bottom
3) There IS a difference between baking powder and baking soda
4) Believe it or not, there IS such thing as too much cheese
5) Make sure you have an oven thermometer in an old oven
6) Meat you leave in the fridge for over a week should never be cooked, let alone eaten
7) If you make your own recipe go by a recipe you find in a book or online before attempting to re-create your own

Being a procrastinator isn't a good time right now

So as I'm getting the ideas for my baking business AND my blog for my baking business I have to get ready to move.

I. Hate. Moving.

But that is more from growing up with a dad in the army and moving every 2-3 years THEN I was married to a soldier who moved every 2 years, was married to him for 10 years then I recently got remarried to a soldier who got out last year.

So procrastinating isn't a good idea for me right now.  I have a 6 and an 8 year old AND will be having a baby in April..whew..yeah, crazy life I lead I know.  Unfortunately I can't do much til he is born but right now just researching, blogging, reading other people's blogs, getting some influence is helping me right now.

Til later
