Week 364 Menu and Goodbye Facebook

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!  I have so much I'd love to write, but I'm trying to manage my time better, so I'll keep it short (maybe).

Did you have a great weekend?  Ours was pretty packed, but I simplifed (or slacked) by not making dinner the last three nights and I took a little nap after church yesterday.  I'm happy that baseball season is winding down and soccer season is finally over (my son has been playing with his competititve team off and on since last May).  

I think we've been a bit overscheduled and stretched lately, so I'm trying hard to keep our summer as unscheduled as possible so we can all relax and enjoy being together as a family.  And, I'm looking forward to being able to make dinner at a normal time and eat together at the table, instead of packing food and taking it to the baseball field, or standing around the kitchen counter at 7:30 trying to feed everyone.

One more thing before I get to my menu, I wanted to tell you that I've decided to say goodbye to facebook. 
Goodbye, facebook!  My husband has been telling me forever that I should just get off of facebook, but I finally decided to do it.  (I actually didn't delete my account, but just deactivated it, but I'm planning on logging back in again anytime soon).  

I have mixed feelings about saying goodbye to facebook.  I love hearing what my friends, far and near, are up to.  However, it's been super nice not to feel the urge or need to check it so I don't miss anything.  I still have instagram though, so I haven't totally called off social media.  I'd like to be a better example to my daughter and focus more on my life instead of looking up people to find out what they are up to.  

Yesterday I was wondering if I should have just had more self control and just logged out for a few weeks instead of making it impossible for anyone to contact me, tag me in something or message me.  But then I got an email from one of my friends from college, which kind of confirmed to me that it's okay.  If people want to contact me, then can figure out another way.

I was sad to lose my blog facebook followers, but honestly, I feel realived, because facebook is one less thing to feel like I should be updating.

Instagram is another story....and addiction.  I know it's a lot like facebook, but I feel like it's a lot less in your face.  There aren't things all over the screen telling me who liked what and who commented on someone else's photo.  

Anyway....so if you like updates for when I post here on the blog, I'll post something on instagram or you can sign up for rss feed, or use feedly (I love it).  And you can contact me here on the blog or click on the little email button on the right sidebar.  

All righty...

Menu time:

Monday:  we're having Greek grilled chicken, pitas, tzatziki sauce, veggies for dipping

Tuesday:  crockpot perfect pot roast, roasted veggies

Wednesday:  taco soup

Friday:  easy night

Sunday;  teriyaki meatballs, stirfry veggies, rice/quinoa

How about you?  What are you making this week?  And, what are your feelings about facebook?  I'd love to hear what you think. 

Have a great week!

  1. Good for you for signing off of Facebook! I feel like it's such a time-suck for me. I get what you mean about Instagram - it can be a time-waster but it's not nearly as much as Facebook is. I recently made two accounts for Instagram: one to follow friends and one just for fun. It is easier to keep up on and then, when I do want to just "veg," I have that just-for-fun acct where I can log out and not feel like I'm missing anything really important from people I know IRL. (I count you there because we met that one time!!)

    I've realized that I tend to do better with menu plans if I make them midweek - am I a weirdo? I don't have any time on Sunday to plan; I do better doing it during some downtime on, like, Tuesday afternoon. So I'll share what we've eaten and what I've got planned, too.

    W: bacon cheeseburger soup
    Th: Hawaiian meatballs in the crockpot
    F: homemade pizza (trying to improve my crust and my sauce .. It's getting better!)
    Sa: chicken taqueria and salsa
    Su: waffles
    M (today): chicken broccoli casserole with rolls
    T: pizza pasta
    W: tater tot casserole (unless I swap this for soup ..)
