FishChick and Gpa Lee

The week was pretty uneventful — until this morning. Grampa Lee had a heart attack. Thankfully, he recognized the signs that something was amiss and got medical care right away. He’s recovering in the hospital for the next couple days. This pic is of him and one of his favorite little cowgirls from a few years ago. We appreciate your keeping him in your prayers as he recoups.

In other news, I did a little blog hopping this week. That was pretty fun.

:: Check out my three-part series on freezer meal over at The KitchnIntro | 5 Great Meals | Tips for Power Cooking Freezer Prep

:: Head to Keeper of the Home where I’m chatting about Keeping it Real for homeschooling and homemaking, and well, life in general.

School starts on Tuesday, hockey in a week or two, and I have a big deadline at the end of the month. Life is heating up. Time to get my game on. I’m testing out a new app called Schedule Planner HD by Intersog. (That’s my affiliate link for the iTunes store.) I found the app when I was looking for something to help me keep track of my time budget. Hoping to get it to work for me.

I’ll let you know how it goes. If you’ve got an app that does that, please let me know.

Meanwhile, here’s what’s been happening on Life as MOM:

Coming next week:

  • another FREE Meal Plan to Print and Cook
  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Homeschool Organization Tips
  • There’s a Bully in School
  • Freezer Cooking Days

Be sure to let me know what stories and articles are helpful to you and what you’d like to see more of in the coming weeks. I want to make your “life as MOM” as fun and as easy as possible.

  1. Our summer had been pretty uneventful until two weeks ago when my husband (early 50’s) had a heart attack. Thankfully it was mild, but he had to have quadruple bypass surgery. He is home now recovering. Such a shock. We have a Grandpa Lee, too. =) He had open heart surgery last year and I helped to take care of him as he recovered. Certainly did not expect to go through this with my husband this year! But none of this was a surprise to God, and His grace is always sufficient.

  2. Praying for Grandpa Lee. Thankful he recognized that he needed to seek medical attention.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
