Operation Sweet Potato

I think she likes the sweet potatoes. That or she axe-murdered The Great Pumpkin.


Operation Stuff the Child with Solids is going into full force today due to the failure of Operation Create a Budget That Can Withstand Five Cans of Formula Per Month. We will introduce new foods in order of frugality. What is the cheapest vegetable known to man?

Also, I'm back to work. A little. The time budget needs some help too. A nice firm deadline will do wonders, I'm sure. For those of you who are new around here, I am a freelance editor, so I work at home, and not very hard (just kidding, blog-stalking clients. Hey, aren't you reading this at work?).

I do still intend to blog about our Ethiopia trip. It's just . . . hard to find the words to start, and I can't explain why. As much as I want to share it, I think part of me wants to just keep it for myself because it's so inexpressible and I know you won't fully understand. I know some of you know what I mean. Still, stories are for telling, so I will.

After the work. Always the work!

Hey there!

I haven't blogged our trip to Ethiopia for many of the same reasons, and well, we've been home for nearly five months. Guess I need to share soon too...

Nice photo; looks like a good one to bring out again about 13 years from now. :)

Rebekah loved prunes, green beans, and oatmeal. Sometimes together. Yum-yum!

She's just adorable! Take your time sharing your story. Sometimes things like that have to rest in your heart for a while before you can tell the world. :)

She can talk already?

For food, just start her on what you guys eat. Our biggest mistake was too many jars, not enough "table." Just cook a little extra of your own and see what she'll eat. Should be easier on the budget, too.
As for your trip... I'm going to blog myself about it.
