This week I am determined to make this ham!!! Lol I've planned it for like the last 3 weeks and still have yet to eat it! Also, I had a surprise Valentines Day dinner date with my husband, so I will be trying that new recipe this week. Besides those things I stuck to last weeks plans.
I keep thinking that "things will get easier when (fill in the blank)"... Right now my husband is in the process of getting our church's 2nd campus ready for opening on March 11th, my oldest daughter is cheering twice a week, my oldest son has baseball 4 times a week, we are involved in our church on Weds nights, my husband is restoring his "dream car" with his friend, we're both enrolled in online college classes and we're trying to find another house to move into that will give us more space. And then of course there are the normal everyday things like kids school, homework, projects, house chores, bills to be paid, etc. It seems when one thing ends it just makes room for another activity to fill it. For example my daughter's cheering ends next week and then my youngest son will start with T-Ball 2 days a week.
I really prefer to be at home. Not like I'm a homebody, but I hate driving all over the place. It makes me feel so much more pressured to stick to a schedule. Now I do love schedules, but I like them to be flexible. With our life right now, that's not possible! I guess I just need to get used to it... At least for the time being.
One thing that is suffering is my meal planning. The problem isn't meal planning itself, without it we would just eat out constantly. But I don't have as much time in the kitchen and if I don't start early, it's not happening. So in an effort to make it work I need to plan quick or make ahead meals! I'll be sharing my findings later this week.
