"Eat everything on your plate!"

I read this article and while it doesn't really have anything to do with being a wife- I just wanted to respond to its main question... "DO YOU / YOUR FAMILY FINISH EVERYTHING ON YOUR PLATE?"


My answer: Yes, I pretty much always finish everything on my plate- but that's because my parents raised us to 'not waste'. Many times I couldn't chose my portions, therefore- this 'finish everyting on my plate thing' has allowed me to gain several unwanted pounds.

As for my kids, it varies. They're only 3 and 4 so if they're hungry and they LOVE it, they'll eat it all and sometimes ask for 2nds. But I don't 'make' them finish it if they're not hungry. I don't want them to develop the same over eating habits I have (and blame on my frugal parents.)

Cleaning Quest #2: The Kitchen

Again, proud of the results- although, there is still more work that needs to be done.

Aren't you proud of me??? :o)

I sure am!

Cleaning Quest #1: The Master Bedroom

Okay- here are two pictures of my current cleaning quest. (before and after)

and while I'm not really in the mood to talk about it much- I really am proud of the results that I accomplished today.

The goal, is not to necessarily do a 'quest' everyday- but when the urge strikes to clean, I want to take a
picture of it's before and after appearance that way I can hold on to the 'proudness' for as long as possible.


As you can see in the after photo- there is still lots of work that needs to be done cosmetically (lamp shades, shelving and wall hangings) but compared to it's before pic, this room is looking MUCH better now. Yippee!
