1. In a jam, children's liquid pain reliever will work for mommy headaches. I was out of ibuprofen & desperate. It worked!
2. I didn't know what to make for dinner tonight, but I had a can of corn, a can of Rotel, a can of refried beans, and a can of salsa verde. I also had rice & ground beef. Unfortunately I had no tortillas or tortilla chips. But, I still was able to throw together a rice dish that (most of) my family ate. Oooh. And, we topped it with some fresh cilantro which has started popping up again in my father-in-law's garden.
3. I'm reading a new book for the book club I've recently become part of. It's called Little Bee by Chris Cleave. It's the story of a Nigerian refugee girl who escapes to England. It's not a book I would have chosen on my own, but it has completely drawn me in. It's powerful. And, even though it's fiction, it's a story that could be true. I'm reminded again of how blessed we are.
