F-I-R-E-D!!! + Tub Caulking, Hand-Washables, and Frozen Soup

I'm SO fired...

Has it seriously been more than an entire MONTH since I posted...? Ugh. Life has taken a few turns in the past couple of months and I find myself transitioning from a full-time stay-at-home mom to a working-full-time mom. My husband has been unemployed for 4 months, so the first one of us to find a job took it! For now, this is how we're functioning. It has been a difficult transition, but I'm starting to feel like things are settling into a new routine and I'm not so completely overwhelmed and exhausted at the end of the day that I can't focus on anything else. So...

To make up for the lack of posting in recent days/weeks, I'll give you three teeny little tips that I've had on my list of things to post about...

1. When caulking your tub, fill it with water first. That way, it won't crack with your first bath.
2. Use a colander to rinse hand-washables. Drip dry in the colander for a bit, then lay flat to dry.

3. Take soup leftovers and put one serving each in a smaller freezer or sandwich ziploc bag. Squeeze out as much air as you can before sealing the bag really well. Lay the bags flat in the freezer. Once they're frozen, you can stand them vertically in a basket, labeled along the top. When you want to have soup with your sandwich for lunch (or take it to work to warm up), you can flip through your choices in the flat freezer bags. Fun, huh? Although I do suggest getting the soup out of the freezer the night before and putting it the fridge to defrost. Depending on your bag, I would NOT suggest heating your soup in the bag, open or closed. Defrost it and put it into a bowl first.

So... After all that... Do you forgive me, even a smidge, for being such a slacker of a blogger???

I hereby promise to post AT LEAST weekly from this point forward. :) I swear!!
