Good morning!

 

Jean, I'm with you on the running out of ideas! Over 26 years of meal planning has just about run me out of ideas, too. I'm trying to use the crock pot a bit more because of ds' swim practice falling right at dinner time. Maybe we could share a few recipes once a week or so. I'll link below some I have tried in the last couple months. 

 

Done:

breakfast and lunch for dh

fed cats

coffee

 

To Do:

shower and get ready for day

meals

print some things for my tutoring students

school with ds

tutoring sessions

drop off ds at swim 

go to bible study

prep for tutoring session tomorrow

 

 

Sausage and Kale

Chicken, Sweet Potatoes, and Kale

Chili Pineapple Chicken

Chicken and Peppers

Crockpot Mexican Casserole

Good morning!  DH is taking DS13 on our co-op field trip today (to see the NOAA Hurricane Hunter facility and airplanes) so I thought I'd have a day all to myself, but sadly I'm quickly being overtaken by things that need to get done.

 

-coffee

-get DS16 out the door for school

-workout (1 hour interval cardio training that will kick my butt)

-Publix

-three different library branches to pick up books for DS13's WTMA writing project - only made it to one

-read 5 chapters of Great Expectations to catch up with DS13 for literature class

-dentist appointment at 1:30

-DS16 to dermatologist at 3:45 (he is taking himself)

-DS16 school baseball practice at 5:30-8

-dinner

-DS16 homework

I had a bad dream and woke up early.

We have two friends coming over tonight for dinner. They are coming for dinner, and to play a longboard game with Dh. They arrive when my boys are at teen group at the library.

Good morning! Busy day today. I am not sure that I will have much time to knock off another big chore today. But I will try-need to get the house in shape for the winter.

Dd2 has a terrible cold and is currently embroiled in stupid girl drama. Why is it that the "nice" girls are the most passive aggressive? As dd2 says, at least the mean girls will be mean to your face and you know what is wrong and where you stand.

 

To do:

ds2 to cc

ds3 up and working

try to get one chore in..clean freezer? clean dryer vents? back patio?

dd2 to sports physical (registration for high school swimming started)

dd2 back to school

jen things if time

ds3 bike to tennis

dd2 pick up/swim

ds2 to judo (my turn)

 

quiche and salad for dinner

 

Have a great day!

I am worn out with drama with ds lately. 

 

It's a glorious fall day and I think it would be plain wrong to spend most of it inside.

So I let him sleep til he woke, which was 8:45! 

He did piano, Bible, literature and math. I'm calling it enough. Time to play outside!! 

 

So I can do stuff around the house and he is happy.

I feel like I get a lot done and then I crash in the evenings.  It feels like I'm being lazy.  I'm not, but I obviously tend to do everything in the day time and my evenings are empty.  

 

School with kids

organize AHG stuff for meeting

Troop Hike

Troop Meeting

Pick up chocolate fountain

dinner out

Kohl's to buy dd tennis shoes

home before bed.... maybe

 

 

As for dinner ideas...I'm with you about making the same old stuff.   I have made more new things this month than in the last year!  Today I printed out a new recipe.  Nothing NEW to my family, but a different recipe in the way it's made.  I'm hoping the flavors are same enough but different enough to enjoy.  I'm also going to try Lentil soup.   I made a new tomato parmesan soup last week and even my meat boys like it!  For me it's about the motivation to cook something new.  I want new, just not the work of learning new LOL  But tonight I'm just grabbing a salad while out and about.  I'll cook at home the rest of the week

Oh, we love lentil soup! I make it with bacon and cream and just a bit of sherry - so good on a cold night! 

 

I go in waves on new recipes, a bunch at one time and then none for weeks and weeks. Depends on how much energy I have to think about meals.

Dd was playing with her artificial arm and now she's behind in actual scheduled school.  I'm reminding myself that being an autodidact and being enthusiastic about learning about intricacies of the circulation system etc. is good and that I really shouldn't be so rigid in my thinking.  I wasn't this rigid in my thinking until high school.  How did this happen?  I didn't plan for this to happen and it doesn't really fit my homeschool philosophy.

 

Load #1 is now in the dryer.  Load #2 is in the washing machine.

Got car tabs. Parked farther away from the licensing department than I meant to. But it was a wonderful walk in a beautiful fall day.

Got groceries. Dinner is steak, baked yams and steamed broccoliini

All done for the day, whew! It was windy and wild and cold during chores tonight.

 

I decided to make homemade veggie pizza for dinner instead of salmon.

 

I'm waiting for my hockey game to start, but I'll probably miss most of it. It doesn't start until 9:00 and I'm usually conked out fast asleep by about 9:05.
