Hope you enjoy my blog. It’s life according to Azra . Me! I’m sure most of it will be ramblings of random things with no real signifcance to most.. but there is a method to my madness. LOL
It’s been a while August 19, 2009
I haven’t posted in a long time. Things have been crazy here. It’s never a dull moment that’s for sure. Sam and I were having some issues in our marriage and we are trying to work them out. It’s a long hard road, but I hope that I am making the right choice.
The kids are growing so fast. I can’t believe how fast. Makes you realize that faster they grow, the older I get. For me that’s has been the hardest part of it all.
It’s a new school year, and things are finally starting to slow down. I thought it would be a great time to get back to posting about my favorite thing.. Cooking. I have some recipes that I that I want to share with all of you.
Well it’s off and running…. October 14, 2008
I am excited to announce that Sam & Ozzy’s Lunch box is off and running. It’s a scary thing when you try to make your dreams come off the ground, when you have everything riding on it. Good thing I have faith… that all will work out. I got Jack & Jill ( our local small town grocery store) to place our take out menu in all the shoppersbags, and I have to say my ears have been ringing all night. So I know there is some talk going on LOL. Which is a good thing. I want people talking. 300 menu’s went out through the grocery store, and that doesn’t count the ones that I took the schools, the bank, the city office, and other places.
I am prepped and stocked, bring on tomorrow, I am ready.
