The meal plan for the week has long flew out the window. In my defense, it was not for lacking of trying! Monday I had not anticpated a stop at CVS for a prescription to take close to an hour. After trying to keep Brooke occupied there that long, there was no time or energy for dinner preparations. Daddy brought home Wendy’s. Fast forward to last night when I had planned to just slide Monday’s dinner of Spaghetti and Meatballs into Tuesday’s slot. That was until I turned the faucet to get Brooke a drink of water and realized the City was still working outside on a water pipe issue and our water was turned off. So much for making pasta! My confession is I probably could have come up with an alternative but at that point, I gave up!! Last night became pizza! pizza! night at our house and Keith picked up Little Ceasar’s on the way home.
My favorite quote is by John Lennon…”Life is what happens to while you’re busy making other plans”. I’m going to keep meal planning but when things don’t work out according to plan, I just gotta go with it!
Now, on to Working Mommy Wednesday!!!
We had a choice of writing about our favorite or most annoying celebrity or write from our child’s perspective of a time when they had to wonder what the heck her Mom was thinking. I chose the latter.
Last February in an act of homesick desparation, Brooke and I made the trip back to my hometown in Michigan to visit family & friends. The February before that I swore that I would NOT be visiting February again. I like my Texas winters for a reason!! As mentioned earlier though, I was really homesick so off we went!!
Now Brooke is a native Texan and this would be her first encounter with a Michigan winter. So of course everyone was excited to see her reaction to the cold and most importantly, snow!!
One of the last nights of our trip we got Brooke all bundled up and plopped her down on the snow. I wanted to get pictures so my dad helped her stand up in the snow which was that really crunchy kind that doesn’t really give under your feet. Standing wasn’t really working too well so we sat her down and I’m sure her butt must have instantly frozen!! She looked at me with this pitiful face and after a couple more pictures (I’ll admit it!) we headed back inside. I can only imagine what she must have been thinking and I know she had to wonder what I was thinking…
