Today for lunch I had a delicious sandwich on a baguette featuring lots of “Tex Mex” shredded cheese, which contains lots of cheddar.

I observe Lent, so today (final day before lent begins on Ash Wednesday) I’ll be eating lots of treats and eating a delicious dinner with the family. Looking forward to the yumminess :heart: But because Ash Wednesday falls on the same day as Valentine’s Day this year, we will be giving the kids a nice “treat” breakfast" before we begin our observance.

I had a frozen dinner that had some cheddar in it.

That sounds really neat, I can only imagine the discomfort an NG tube would cause :grimacing: .

The way they had the tube rigged up and taped eventually caused a permanent indentation on one of his nostrils. When I noticed that (because he never complained about anything) that I came up with the “harness”.

That sounds awful! Thank goodness you not only noticed, but were able to come up with a solution as well!

My husband was certainly grateful!! Later he just got them to let him drink the stuff which worked a lot better. :wink:

So great that you were able to create something that worked for him in the meantime, though!


Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’m too tired to put all the other stuff for today here, lol! Bu they’re all listed at the top of the thread :slight_smile:


I didn’t do anything for Valentine’s Day, but the kids and I created a display for Lent. The kids did do Valentine’s crafts too, but honestly I only had energy for one craft today, especially since we had a really busy day with activities outside the home.

Next Everyday Holidays Craftalong

For next month, I’ll do another monthly post, but starting in April, I think I’ll do it quarterly, like the Nerd Games. I think that’ll give everyone more time to participate. And the idea will be the same as the Nerd Games, where the crafts aren’t time sensitive. So you could do crafts for holidays that are held in April in June and it would still count.

What do people think of this?

I’m open to ideas!
