Hello, and Happy Monday to you all!
It was another busy weekend at our house, filled with Saturday baths for the puppies, car washes and grass cutting. And some great times with great friends on Saturday night. The weekend was capped off by the very best part – Picking up Big Girl on Sunday from her Boot Camp weekend. It’s a weekend retreat the church does just for sixth graders – to focus on them for one whole weekend as they transition to middle school.
Little Bit has been sick with a cold. And has tried to share it with us big people. I have been running a low fever today so I think she may have been somewhat successful. Big Girl sent me a text at 1AM on Sunday telling me she was all stuffy and had a sore throat. I guess she got infected before she left us on Friday.
Regardless, it was a good weekend. And I think she had a good time as well at her retreat. Sunday was the best day of the two – of course – because Big Girl came home. I couldn’t wait to see her!
She was exhausted (of course) and ready for a hot shower and some peace and quiet. We were all in bed by 7 last night! The power went out because of storms so we just all decided to turn in early. I think we all needed the rest.
This week, I’ve got some comfort food planned for the first part of the week – at least until we kick this virus to the curb.
Here’s what’s on my menu plan this week:
- Monday: chicken & dumplings – requested by the sickies.
- Tuesday: Fajitas
- Wednesday: Teriyaki chicken & fried rice
- Thursday: Leftover buffet or sandwiches
- Friday: Low Country Boil (? – if SuperMan will make it)
- Saturday: pizza for the kids – we have a date night!
I’m also making some homemade bread – trying this new recipe out. Big Girl is making some brownies for lunch snacks and I’ll probably make some other lunch snack/sweet later in the week.
