Me

My photo
I am a lucky Woman, I have a Husband that loves me, a beautiful grown step-daughter, a 15 yr old son and a 8 yr old son. I try to create a home that is warm and will linger with memories of Mom's cooking and being home for my children. This isn't always possible, considering they rough house, I get tired and hit the Mcdonald's drive thru and sometimes buy clean socks for them instead of wash it.... I try to do a menu plan, hang our clothes out to dry, use coupons, go to Church every week.. and pretend I am a stay at home Mom while working 40 hours a week

January-Oh what have you done to me...

Let's face it- December is a month of gorging, I don't know about you all- but I am in total decluttering/saving mode now. I suppose that is my *gasp* resulotion! To not be a spendaholic like I have horrible tendicies toward.
I made a Meal Plan for January, cut up a credit card... and I am placing things in give away boxes before I have the chance to blink.

Oh~ I wanted to clarify the whole "Becker Style" name of the blog- I was talking to my sister in law, explaining how before Brian and I go into any situation we look at each other and say," I love you- we are a team".... I was telling another freind at another time this strategy so as not to fight with each other and she came back from a holiday and said " We did our holiday " Becker Style" and it worked!"
I loved it- to think that my crazy life actually made sense to someone else was validation- that it is okay - we are all insane, but we try- we make and muddle our way thru things in life.. like Phil from Modern Family " The truth is, our parents faked our way thru it, we fake our way thru it, you just have to not raise a serial killer"....


I made it thru the first day of work without stopping at our local Sheetz for a schmuffin and diet pepsi, like I really wanted to, and stuck to the first day of the Meal Plan, not too shabby. Now if I can make it to Jan. 15th~ I will be estatic...
