I'm so thankful for the super great, sweet, fabulous friends that I have that took care of my other three kiddos and got them off to school, fed them, packed lunches, did homework, got them to play practice, to early morning band practice, took them to church, etc., etc., etc.
I had a great time having a break from all of those things, plus eating out, running and walking along a beautiful river, reading a book, etc.
Now it's back to normal life, plus a lot of laundry piles. At least it's all clean laundry though. I'm off to hit the grocery store, but I menu planned first, so here it is:
Monday: we had chicken pot pie from my freezer (I love freezer meals!)
Tuesday: Waikiki meatballs, rice, veggies
Wednesday: parmesan chicken strips, roasted new potatoes (freshly dug)
Thursday: spaghetti with turkey meatballs, easy, yummy french bread
Saturday: homemade pizza
Sunday: perfect pot roast, new potatoes, carrots, gravy, one hour rolls
After I hit the grocery store, I need to whip up some peanut butter cookies that my five-year-old sweetly requested twice yesterday. And then attempt to make a yoda costume and a goddess costume out of a pile of fabric. Hopefully my sewing machine cooperates. Ugh. Not a seamstress. Too bad I'm a kid-pleaser and I'm too cheap to buy each kid a $25 costume.
Have a great day! And if you feel like becoming my favorite person of the day, post your menu too. :)
