A little chicken?

As dinner time was quickly approaching, I realized I had forgotten to put my whole chicken in the crock pot this morning. So I took yet 'another' opportunity to get on the blessed computer today and googled "whole chicken recipe" and came up with a very satisfying bird. Very very simply, I shook and sprinkled nothing but salt, cracked pepper and onion powder on the chickie (inside and out), and then put "dallops" of margarine on the top of it, after inserting 3 tbsps of margarine inside the bird. I was giggling to myself, scratch that! I was full belly laughing as I was invading this foul's space, repeating, "You want me to put my what...in the What What???" Am I the only one who remembers that commercial from a few years back? Well, I know my older sister remembers it, only because I remind her of it each and every time either of us fix chicken or turkey. And we both still laugh hysterically like little school girls.
Wanna know why I forgot to house the chicken in the crock pot for the day? I'll tell you anyway! I got out my Motivated Mom's cleaning schedule (that has been nicely tucked away in a desk drawer and forgotten about for a year and a half) and decided to get busy. Ahhh. It is wonderful to step into the kitchen in socked feet and not get stuck in dried juice drops, shaken from the spout of a "no-drip" sippy cup from a toddler. Why? Because the floor was mopped!!! And there are no more smiley faces drawn in the dust on the piano bench. Why? Because it was dusted!!! I love the Motivated Mom's system. (don't scoff at me--its been a busy year and a half!) Some women took oodles of time and divied up the household duties and split them up into very do-able tasks, and then published it for all of the domestically impaired house wives to use and learn from, for a very minimal fee. And if you are like me, and have a hard time doing a daily Bible devotion, they even have a calendar with daily reading built in. BONUS! Kudos to the Motivated Moms group. My husband thanks you!
