Slackin'.......And Not Just With Blogging

Ever since this whole divorce thing started I've noticed that I've been slacking in a few areas. What I feed my children is one of them. I used to have plenty of time to make a healthy meal with all organic ingredients, I could spend hours in the kitchen backing bread, making sweets and trying new things. Now, I'm lucky if I have time to make anything other than noodles and peas. And as far as buying mostly organic...yeah, that's not happening. Money is just too, too tight right now. Child support kicks in on the first, so I'll be able to do my finances and see what I'm looking at as far as how much money I'll be able to spend on groceries. Right now I'm not getting very much money to work with, so I've had to really watch what I spend. I'm hoping I'll have a little more to spend on fresh produce and mostly organic things the kids eat all the time, like yogurt, milk, bread, peanut butter, noodles and such. It's not easy, but I'm trying to get better at it. I'm just so sick of them eating the same thing all the time and I want to be able to provide them with better options. No more excuses! I'm doing this.
