First let me say that Kodak and Juice Box Jungle sponsored me to write this post. Hey, I am totally O.K. with that, it bought me 2 trips to Smoothie King this month!
They wanted me to ask, What are “The top and bottom 3 things you spend your time thinking and worrying about, or hoping for…in the role of MOM.”
Wow, where to start! The bottom three is harder to come up with as obviously they are things I really don’t think much about. If I had to guess I would say…
Bottom 3 I worry about:
#1 Are my kids loved enough? Absolutely. I don’t ever worry about it!
#2 Do they have enough toys? Absolutely. I don’t ever worry about it!
#3 Have they all laughed and smiled today? Absolutely. I don’t ever worry about it!
Top 3 I worry about: This has made me cry today…
#1 Are my kids loved enough?
#2 Will they make good choices?
#3 How can I keep them safe?
I lay awake every night and worry about those three things and about 100 other issues with my children. My husband and I are discussing this as I type and his answers were surprisingly the same as mine. That is what made me cry. I expected close to the same with a few “I worry ______ won’t make the ______ team” thrown in there. But we are really on the same page as far as what deep down we worry about. He just doesn’t wear it on his sleeve like I do 🙂
What do you spend your time worrying about?
P.S. I took the quiz on Kodak’s site and I am WAAAYYYY over spending on printer ink. Darn, I was afraid of that!

Last week’s plan went really well. I found that my husband even looked to see what was on the plan and got dinner started one night. Brilliant! Anything in blue is a link to the recipe.
Dinner: Hamburgers found pre-made patties at Kroger for a steal!
Dinner: Tuesday nights are crazy for us, so I think I am going to have Breakfast for Dinner! Either Banana Pancakes or Cream of Wheat with toast and fruit. Either way the kids will love it!
Dinner: My cheapest meal ever only $.58 a person! Kroger mega event leftovers! Chili and salad!
Dinner: Pan Fried pork chops and asparagus. I have to use the chops up in the freezer, now I justhave to remember to pull them out!
Dinner: Pizza of course! Unless I find a great deal on something I can’t pass up!
