What will become of this afternoon? August 7, 2013

It’s 2:12 p.m. 

What will become of this afternoon?

I feel a strange combination of exhausted and energized. 

I feel a pull to “check out” for a while and possibly take a nap. On the other hand, I feel a bit of a drive to work, work, work and get some things done.

If Thing2 does take a nap, I guess that will be a deciding factor.


“What’s for Dinner?” August 5, 2013

FlyLady is right. There is a sense of peace and purpose when you know what your family is having for dinner.

I forced myself to assemble a casserole this morning, using chicken from the whole chicken we roasted over the weekend. We were fortunate to have on hand the other ingredients (shredded cheese, cream cheese, onion, butter, whipping cream — we eat low carb around here).

I’ve been feeling rather off kilter today, with so many competing priorities and not a lot of energy, but I do feel a bit better now that dinner is in the fridge and ready to go in the oven this afternoon.

Power to all of the mamas who, like me, aren’t that great at meal planning!
