Why is it??.....

Why is it as soon as everyone has been tucked into bed and kissed goodnight, there is all of a sudden a million and one things everyone needs or wants?? It is just about 10 pm here and 2 out of the 4 kids are still not sleeping. First, it's can I have a drink of water, then it's I need ____________(fill in the blank with animal, blankie, etc), then you just get the diaper on the little one and all of a sudden NOW she wants to go pee in the potty! What do you say no??? After all you are trying to potty train her and if you told her no then you would have to start all over at square one right? Some night's bedtime is pretty easy and then you have nights like tonight where you wonder if they will ever get in bed and stay there. I think a lot has to do with the full moon we have tonight, I think it makes it even more crazy and chaotic than normal.

I worked on my menu plan for the week, last night and tonight and by tomorrow night it will be complete. Tonight we had kielbasa, potato and sour kraut bake with home-made honey mustard sauce on top....YUM! This was a rare night that everyone ate dinner and for the most part liked it. That doesn't happen here very often there is usually one or two out of six that doesn't like something about dinner. The recipe is very easy......

1 lb kielbasa, cut into bite size pieces
5-7 russet potatoes, unpeeled and cut into bite size pieces
1 can sour kraut
1 pkg onion soup mix
1/4 c oil (I used less)

mix all ingredients together and bake for an hour or until potatoes are tender and cooked at 425 degrees F.

That's it! I'm off to relax with a shower and then a netflix movie.
