Weekly Menu Part II

Most days we're running at full speed! From the time I wake up at 5:30 am to get ready for school, get the kids movin', etc. , we're runnin!

My menu has been less than spectacular lately, and I'm sad about that. I used to enjoy making my menu for the week, but we have so many things that start early in the evening, by the time I get home from work between 3:30-4:00, I have about 1 hour to make supper, get everyone fed, and leave again for the evenings activities.

I know I shouldn't be complaining. I realize I have the perfect job that allows me to get home earlier than most and get my kids to their events.

I realize that I shouldn't be complaining because I actually have a job, and many don't.

I realize that I should be enjoying this time in my children's lives. But I'm just tired.

I've never slept this hard in my life.

My "free time" doesn't start most evenings until about 9:30 pm. By the time laundry is done, lunches are packed, the dishwasher is emptied and reloaded, coffee made, etc. I'm beat. I would love to sit and watch some shows, or read, but I usually wake up in the chair about 2am, and realize I have been there since about 10pm.

Not good.

But I digress. This is not what my post is about's about my menu for next week.
