My Life in a Nut Shell

3 surgeries for Endometriosis, countless medications, and lots of difficult years trying to conceive. We put the medical stuff on hold and decided to work on being parents instead. In July of 2000 we were blessed beyond all measure with a phone call announcing the birth of our daughter, Megan. Megan's birth mother had given birth the day before and was leaving the hospital. We had no warning that Megan was coming. At 4:29 in the afternoon we were a couple, at 4:30 we were parents. Deciding that we wanted a sibling for Megan, we looked into all our options. This time insurance covered IVF. One round and we were blessed with triplets, Abigail, Brigid, and Caroline. Did you know that there is a 70% chance of divorce in families of Higher Order Multiples? Almost two years after the triplets were born my ex-husband and I separated and eventually divorced. During that time both my Mother and Father passed away from cancer. In February of 2007 my sister came to live with us to help out. In December of 2008 she had to leave so now it is me on my own with the girls. In February 2010, Lisa passed away and finally found her own Peace.

Dinner #2

Here is my second attempt at cooking from scratch and on the cheap.  I made two bacon and cheese quiches.  I used eggs, half and half, bacon, 2 types of cheese, and red onions.  I froze the second one for another dinner.  That means altogether I spent about $10 for TWO dinners!  I put out fresh spinach for salad and fresh carrots for dipping.  The prep time was less than 10 minutes.  I did use pre-made pie crusts. They were on sale for $1.99 for two. 

Along with this I cut up apples and sprinkled them with cinnamon, brown sugar, and a little bit of powdered sugar for color.  The girls loved this one.  Brigid and Abigail sat on the floor after dinner and gave this one 8 thumbs up (4 thumbs and 4 big toes).  I know, my girls are goofy!
