My family keep trying to talk me out of it since I don't need to transport so many kids all the time but I really like it. The new vans have the seats that collapse into the floor flat so you don't have to take them out. I keep thinking that I could just use one of those minivans as a travel trailer. Collapse the seats at night, put down an air mattress and sleeping bag and save big time on hotel bills while travelling the country. My entire family thinks I am nuts.I have a friend though whose youngest is the same age as my youngest (they are great friends) and she feels the same way about her Honda Odyssey.

Good thing your husband is so handy. My BIL in Houston is as well. He completely overhauled his old rusted out Camaro or Firebird (I can't keep them straight) and it is gorgeous. He had taken every bolt and every part out of the car. He is now going to renovate his SS 44 (does that sound right?) for his son. We are not handy like that.
I am sorry to say, but I have to side would your family on this one. My personal experience with vans was not positive. I used to drive a van when the kid was little.... Didn't like it at all. It was so difficult to move, steer around, and react fast, especially for city driving. I was ecstatic to get rid of it after three years. And so happy to be making donuts around with my new SUV when we finally replaced the van with it. My van was like a tank, slow on the uptake and a big gas guzzler.

I don't know how safe sleeping in a van is in strange cities and places but I think you have a good idea there you will save a bundle!

I wonder if it's head hunger or something...my kid starts yelling at me.. MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA who ate my cookies...not me..cause if it was me robbing the pantry I go straight for the salt LOLOL!!

So I have the toughest time man..it's why I start recipe hunting on Sunday Night.. I swear.. OMG one day I put Turnips in a crockpot roast.. I thought wow that is pretty good.. it tasted like the meat juice.. he said yuck I dont like it blah blah..

I am also thinking of making that cabbage and egg pie.. I really love that so much.. but I may have enough for Sunday...
Men! Same thing at my house. We never have any leftovers, because they keep coming back picking and picking until it's all gone.

I've never had turnips in crockpot I wonder they would taste okay.

I drove a mini-van once as a loaner when our car was being repaired. I really liked driving it because I was up so high and I felt like I could see everything. I felt like the Captain of the Highway.

That's why I like my SUV. I can see everything so well from up above. When I've had to drive cars on a loan I know I never liked being close to the road. But the SUV is times more maneuverable than the van.

So I'm thinking of trying out this recipe for my eggplant. It's from Ina Garten on Food Network: (and I like the fact that it serves two...so if we don't like it I don't have a ton to throw away!)

Eggplant Gratin

2007, Ina Garten, All Rights Reserved

Prep Time:
15 min
Inactive Prep Time:
--
Cook Time:
30 min

Level:
Easy

Serves:
2 servings

Ingredients

Good olive oil, for frying
3/4 pound eggplant, unpeeled, sliced 1/2-inch thick
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
1 extra-large egg
1/4 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup good bottled marinara sauce

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat about 1/8-inch of olive oil in a very large frying pan over medium heat. When the oil is almost smoking, add several slices of eggplant and cook, turning once, until they are evenly browned on both sides and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Be careful, it splatters! Transfer the cooked eggplant slices to paper towels to drain. Add more oil, heat, and add more eggplant until all the slices are cooked.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the ricotta, egg, half-and-half, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

In each of 2 individual gratin dishes, place a layer of eggplant slices, then sprinkle with Parmesan, salt and pepper and spoon 1/2 of the marinara sauce. Next, add a second layer of eggplant, more salt and pepper, half the ricotta mixture, and finally 1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan on top.

Place the gratins on a baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the custard sets and the top is browned. Serve warm.

So I remade the bed and got right in. Tee hee I took a nap although I laid there for over 45 minutes before I fell asleep. It wasn't a waste of time though because I was praying. Dh and I are going out tonight. Not sure what we're doing but we need to spend some time together. I wanted to be able to not yawn all night with him.

My cupcakes are good, at least according to ds14. He is my taste tester. They are only about 1.4 carbs each although they are the size of mini muffins. I still need to make a lc frosting to put on top. I'll do that tomorrow.

I think going outside among nature and moving about will be really helpful. Even if you are by yourself, unfortunately. I just read that synthetic vitamin D is not nearly as good as the stuff we make through our skin..

It is sad but I have to hide food in my house. Like right now, I have 2 bags of cheddar goldfish on top of my jewelry box in my bedroom. The boys know they are there but won't take them. LOL My friend from prayer group has 3 boys and she hides food too. Another friend has only 1 boy and 2 girls and she didn't understand this.

Chewie, On Pinterest I saw this funny picture of this poor mother hiding food insidel empty tampon boxes. She had to resort to that because she knew the men in the house would never look in there.

I'm planning on doing the same thing. Unfortunately, it only works with non-perishables, or they will wonder why Mama keeps tampons in the refrigerator!

It's the weekend, and lo and behold, DH is working again therefore currently sleeping. DS is is at Cisco computer competition in Waco and currently traveling back home, so the only excitement I've had today is to go shopping. What an exciting life I live! Not!

On the bright side, my lesson plans are done, my shopping is done, and some of my laundry is done. So, for tomorrow, I just need about two hours cleaning done in the morning and then I am absolutely free for the rest of the day.

Good job Eliza!!

I just got all the fruits/seeds out of 3 pomegranates. I tried some tips I read on the Internet but they didn't really work as planned so I stood there for about 30 mins painstakingly taking them apart like I always do. haha! I didn't want them to go bad and I needed the room in my veggie bin anyhow.

That's what I tried. Except I didn't remember the wooden spoon part. I was just wacking it with the heel of my hand. Maybe that's why it didn't work. I also read to get rid of the pith to put them in a bowl of water and the pith will rise to the top. Well it didn't work so hot..and I nearly froze my hand off in that cold water trying to clean off all the pith.
