I wanted to take a minute and welcome all of the new followers to OhMyGoodyGoodness! I am so happy that your here and I hope that you have enjoyed what you have seen so far. Thank you to all of the readers that have been with me for awhile, I apologize for being MIA for so long!
2013 has been quite a crazy year for my family and it is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of September already. I just have no idea where all the time keeps going. This year has proved to be one of the toughest ones yet for me, as I have been dealing with some health issues that have affected nearly every aspect of my life. In my quest to figure out how to live with the things that have happened, I am learning a lot about myself and how to have more compassion for others.
Of course, through all of that, life does go on and life around here is crazy! Between home schooling an 11th grader and one in kindergarten, running the office for our very busy small business and taking care of the every day stuff is enough to make me want to clone myself several times.
I kept thinking that I was going to have so much time over the summer to catch up on blogging and get new recipes on here for all of you. As most of you know, that just didn’t happen the way I planned! Then, about 7 weeks ago, we found 4 abandoned 3 week old kitties in the attic of our workshop. Oh, boy! It has been quite interesting around here since they arrived in our life! My daughter thought she hit the lottery she was so excited! They were so tiny, scrawny and covered with fleas, they were pitiful! We syringe fed them kitten replacement formula, rid them of fleas, and brought them into the family! It has been quite the adventure, as you can imagine!I am working on getting more recipes uploaded as well as making this site more user friendly. Things like, adding in a print feature so that you can easily print out your favorite recipes, as well as some other upgrades and changes that will be an asset to the blog. I know this isn’t the fanciest food blog you have ever visited, but keep in mind that I do this for fun and for something to share with others who love food as much as I do. Until I can get to all the fun upgrades, please hang in there with me! I have a lot of great recipes coming along soon! If you want to read about why I started this to begin with, you can check out the About page.
Until then, I wanted to share the links of some of our favorite recipes that are already on here.
