I'm just not Supermom anymore....

I think I’m just worn out with blogging. I’ve been around a long time and I think I have given all the advice that I know. You firs...

Dear Diary,

We had snow today and more coming this way. It's pretty unless you are driving in it. I guess my snow dance worked. Just don't tell Laurrell about that. I know I can trust you Diary.

My back has been killing me lately. I wonder if it is because I was walking every day for 15 days on my treadmill? I think I pushed myself too hard but it's only because I wanted to lose these 20 extra pounds I have. So I've been in awful shape for a week. I don't like this one bit.

Today I hid in bed with ice, my tens unit while Nurse Sophie took excellent care of me. I guess I will take it easy for a few days, as much as I can with kids and such, to see if my back feels better.

Dear Diary - I'm so glad we can have these chats. Time for bed.

When Siri gets it WRONG.

Lovely O was playing with Siri one day asking all sorts of silly questions and we were all laughing.


Lovely O asked Siri if she liked Michelle's daughter, meaning her.

Siri replied

Michelle Lee @The Adventures of Supermom

No!!!  I absolutely did not want Siri to search the web for vagina.

Then I took the phone away.

Supermom is in the kitchen again. Or I was that day anyway.

For Christmas I made my Mommy Lynn her favorite Friendship Bread.  It's all she talks about!!!  I'm not in the kitchen as much as I used to be but I feel a little bit stronger as each day passes.  I got this.

My friends online feel like family

We have been happy together.  Laughing together.  Smiling together.  Sharing private jokes.  Living.

We have cried together.  We have suffered losses together and we have lost people special to us.  We have fought with those not worthy of our time and we have survived.  That's what we do as humans, survive.  We are doing our very best on each given day.

We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays together.  Hell, we've just celebrated every day of the week that ends in “Y” with each other.

We have even shared meals together.  Sorry about all those food pictures I've been known to post.  Now that I have a new camera I ask for forgiveness now for all the pictures that will be shown.

You've seen my kids be born and you've watched them grow up.  You've seen them breastfeed, you've seen them walk for the first time and you've seen them dance and sing for you in videos.  Perhaps they have felt like extended family as I've shared so much of them with you.

I have shared so much of me with you.  {Haven't you felt all weird knowing so much?  You stalker.  Ha ha!}

You've seen me grow up.  You've seen me depressed and anxious.  You've seen me at my best and you've seen me at my very worst.  You've called me and you've written me and you've held my hand and you've told me that you love me.  You've been there when I needed a shoulder and you've been there to laugh at me, I mean laugh with me.

We've even talked about sex or the lack of it.  Which reminds me I must do another sex survey.  You seem to get a kick out of those.

Writing this blog has been entirely my pleasure.  I had no idea that it would grow like it did and that people would actually care what I had to say.  I'm just a southern girl from the mountains of North Carolina.  But I'm just like you and we share the same situations.  I just blog about it.  Good or bad??

I may not have lots of parenting advice to offer these days since my kids are getting older but if you ever have a question or ask for help, then I will be there for you!  I can offer my opinion and hold your hand if you wish.

That's what I do.  I share myself with you.  Showing you the good and the bad of parenting, marriage and life.

But I know that there are so many milestones yet to share with you and for you to share with me.  It's called life and it's only beginning.

Del Monte knows Comfort Foods ~ Top 10 List: America's Favorite Holiday Comfort Foods
{Baby it’s cold outside.}

Del MonteGrowing up I was always in the kitchen with my Mamaw helping her cook {getting in the way}  There’s something about being together as a family in the kitchen.  The smells and sneaking bites or even licking the bowl.  We’ve ALL done it!  Now that I have four children and a granddaughter I love getting them in the kitchen to help but most of all I just love cooking for them.

They all rely on mom to feed them so I cook things that they love and be a member of the clean plate club.  We all have comfort food that makes the world just perfect.  Comfort food keeps you warm, takes away your sniffles, fills your belly and makes you happy. 

I recently partnered with Del Monte (the makers of premium canned vegetables and so much more) to share with you some fun stats on what Americans love to eat during the holidays. They just published their Del Monte Comfort Food Index, which ranked the Top 10 Holiday Comfort Foods.

1.  Potatoes (mashed or scalloped):  84% (percent who feel "comfort" by eating the food)
2.  Pie:  82%
3.  Baked goods (cookies & muffins):  81%
4.  Macaroni & cheese:  75%
5.  Cake:  71%
6.  Casserole:  69%
7.  Stews and hearty soups:  68%
8.  Meatballs (with or without pasta:  65%
9.  Sweet potatoes (mashed or cut):  61%
10.  Cornbread:  60%

With winter here and you’re shoveling snow you need a warm yummy dish thanks to Del Monte.  Come wrap your arms around this delicious recipe.

Happy New Year {2016}

Michelle Lee @The Adventures of Supermom

Happy New Year everyone!

What did you do to celebrate?

We were in bed.


That's how we roll.

No more kidney stones.

No laptop.  I've been using this fabulous tablet Samsung sent me to review last year.   It's amazing.  

All I can do is give great praise for my tablet.
