It's been awhile since we've had a few days without the kids. It always seems that after September, the boys have AWANA on Wednesdays, Friday School, and then Christmas program practice on Sundays so sending them to a grandparent's house is really difficult to fit in! Well, it was time for a trip to Nana's - the boys have been asking since November - and it has finally worked out! If you have followed this blog for any length of time you know that when the kids are away . . .this lady doesn't cook (much)! It gives me a great break and helps keep the cooking burnout at bay :-)
Here's the plan for the coming week.
Friday - The boys head to my moms so, I'm going to meet Darryl in Grand Rapids for dinner.
Saturday - Darryl and I have a "date day" planned to do some shopping, eating, and hanging out.
Sunday - No kids - we will either eat out or Darryl will bring something home. (We don't mind eating out at Fast food in town either - it's just nice to be just the two of us!) I think Darryl will be working today so I might even head into town so we can eat some place we don't have at home like Long John Silvers :-)
Monday - No Kids = No Cooking
Tuesday - No Kids = No Cooking
Wednesday - back to reality! The Kids are coming home :-) We will probably have frozen pizza before heading to AWANA
Thursday - I have a haircut appointment at dinner time so I'll leave Mac and Cheese to be cooked for dinner - easy and everyone likes it (I'll even buy Darryl Velveeta Mac and Cheese, his favorite!)
Wow, I love the way this menu looks. I almost don't need to go to the grocery store (Except I still need to pack Darryl's lunch HA!)
