meals for the week: 2 weeks worth :) (3.18 through 3.31)

well, we're knocking on April's door...  hard to believe...  then again, we've had crazy hot weather for March, so maybe April will be cool and inviting :)  i don't have my fingers crossed, but i think i can dream a little :)
i didn't get a meal plan posted last week...  for a woman who doesn't run to a formal 9 to 5 job on a daily basis, i sure do feel like a chicken with her head cut off sometimes...  the weeks seem to be busier than usual...  no real reason...maybe it's the longer days and more time outside?  maybe it's just that i have more on my lists of "to do"...  i've stopped trying to figure it out and i'm just resigned to the fact that i'm busy or a poor planner of time...  i'm sure my two sweet kids don't have much to do with this fury of time that passes... :)

so, our eats of the week... :)  well, the last 2 weeks...  i do this more for my records...but if it inspires you, then so be it :)

deep thought of the week... 
i know i've mentioned it before, but we're very blessed to be going to a fantastic church... 
in today's sermon, our pastor talked about VISION and how one sees various challenges...  he spoke about Florence Chadwick, who attempted to swim 26 miles from Catalina Island to the coast of California.  After 15 hours of swimming, surrounded by boats with armed men to scare sharks away, a dense fog set it and she had to stop swimming by her own choice.  She said she lost sight of her destination...  how sad she was to know that she got into the boat a mere mile from the coastline... 
is there anything that's keeping you from achieving something?  have you lost your VISION? 
just as a side note, Florence swam her 26 mile journey, again, two months later...  she said she kept a mental image of the coastline as she swam...  she finished, and even beat the men's record by over 2 hours. :)
