Homekeeper Journal 6/15/10

What’s going on in my kitchen this week ….. Not much! We’re eating dinner at church every night through Thursday before VBS, and I’ve got one kid at Indian Camp eating brown bag lunches all week, so it is definitely not a big meal planning week! I did manage to make myself a homemade ham, cheese, and pickle pizza yesterday, but I may be eating it the rest of the week.

Every time I try to ….. get something started this week, something else gets in the way. This will probably be our busiest week of the entire summer, so I’m just giving up! I’ll catch up next week. Maybe.

Thinking very heavily on this right now … how God gives us just what we need when we need it. My 7YO started Indian Camp yesterday and got to do arts and crafts and go to the aquarium. Today they were going bowling and roller skating. He’s having a ball and feels grown up. My 5YO wasn’t old enough to go this year, but said he was happy to be home alone. Today I took him to see a movie, and his entire class from his old daycare was there to see the same movie. He got to see all his buddies and be part of the group for the movie. I think he was afraid I might leave him with them though, because at the end of the movie, he came and sat by me. Oh, and yesterday he got a birthday invitation from his one of his other little girlfriends from the daycare and he’ll get to see some of the kids from the other class he was in at the party on Sunday!

I wish my Mother or someone had told me that ….. hanging out with the kids would be so much fun. I might have started doing more volunteering sooner!

I am determined to ….. get the kids to bed before 10 pm the rest of the summer. I’m able to have some quality time reading before passing out when this happens, I’ve realized this week. And apparently reading is very important to me and my mental health.


  1. Pickle pizza???? I've never heard of that. I would love to get my 3 year old to go to bed early myself. I lay her down at 8, but she usually doesn't fall asleep until around 9:30 or 10:00.

  2. What a nice journal entry. Pickle pizza? Hmmmm.

  3. You could have gotten the clue about how fun it is to hang out with kids a little earlier ... from your Grandma Irene who loved to be with the little ones!!

  4. Try the pickles. I'm sure you won't be disappointed, if you like pickles, that is. I think I'd stick with obvious companions on the pizza though, like ham. I'm not so sure about pepperoni and pickle pizza, although it's fun to say. I also like fried pickles - both the spear and the sliced versions. Have you had those? Mmmm.
