I should really think twice before I try to combine challenges. last friday the SCS Challenge was to use the color black as a background color and the hanna Stamps challenge was to create a beach themed card. I made a snow globe so I could dream about warm weather vacation spots. Snow globes don't have to have snow in them after all, they can have sand.
I am thinking about creating a menu plan for my family and a rotation of meals that most family members will eat most of the time. I still seem to strike out on anything that everyone enjoys, there is always one whiner. Actually I disallowed whining years ago. You don't have to eat it, but you can't complain about it. Just sit at the table and make conversation and maybe nibble on the bread or make yourself a sandwich. I don't care, I just don't want to hear it. Mealtimes are more enjoyable, but still I always feel at a loss about what to cook. Maybe if I can just look at the schedule and say "Oh, crock pot chicken night" that will take the worry out of it for me. Of course, chili night in June won't be great for anyone, so I'll have to rotate it seasonally a bit.
