So, yeah, getting back in the grove.  I have been crazy busy the past few weeks, what with catching up with life after going to Colorado, going to Ohio this past weekend with the whole family, and working my little tail feathers off…  whew!  Yeah, I would rather just bake and blog about it, but apparently you have to pay for the bacon you bring home.  Bummer!

My hubby ran the Columbus Marathon (yes, if you check his post you will see that he can make being a jock completely geeky – gotta love it!) while we were visiting his dad.  One of my husband’s sisters and her daughter came along (she is so cute!) and made it really fun.  It was just a short visit, but good.  I am hoping things settle down a bit now, more to the normal amount of craziness.  You know, before the whole holiday season thing hits.  ;o)

I am not linking up to any menu plans this week as I got this up so late.  I will be back tomorrow with Gluten Free-zer Friday and the second half of the OAM Mom’s October Freezer Menu.  See you then!

And just because I am feeling like a bit of Jazz today…
