Our Pat has chemo #1 of 6 today. An update from Lauren can be found HERE.
One hundred million points and a silly surprise to the person who can correctly identify the object in these photos by Thursday:

I’m the first to admit to having a lot of room for growth in my life. I am indeed an imperfect mother, wife, and friend. That being said, it hurts my heart to confess I have been called out on one particular area more than once in our marriage. It is a recurring battle. A bruise that will not heal. I am hoping you can help me.
Apparently, the snacks readily available in our house suck eggs.
[hangs head in shame]
Mulder usuals: string cheese, goldfish crackers, popcorn, oreos, chips and salsa.
I took the 2nd step (the first being admitting there is a problem) to correcting this problem by buying some appropriate goods to store things in (step 2: make a plan). I hate having open boxes and smooshy bags in the pantry. With a roaming 4 year-old, this is simply asking for trouble. And, time-out. These lovelies by Snapware are made in the USA and BPA free. You can fit your whole hand inside if necessary, and the lid pops up but STAYS ATTACHED. There’s even a glass option. Mercy. Somewhere in my youth, or childhood, I must have done something good.
I bought 3… 2 large and one small. They are filled with chex mix and nilla wafers at the moment. I stand before you a woman ready to be taught (step 3: openess) in the ways of snacking. What are the cool snacks? What should always be available?
I need to start practicing buying these things (step 4: action). I want to be the ‘cool house.’ I want to be the house where kids come over knowing there’s rockin’ treats in the pantry. Goodness knows, my kids will be on Opra’s cable network for plenty of other legitimate reasons involving their upbringing. We need not add “Poor Snacks” to the list.
Teach me. I ready. What’s in your pantry?
Happy Valentine’s Day, Folks! We love you here at TexasNorth!
