It has been a week or so since I posted. Crazy one at that. I was substitute teaching a bunch last week. My oldest had 3 volleyball practices since they have a tournament next weekend in Washington DC. Plus we had the pre-op appointment for the babies. We received their surgery time — 7AM. This particular doctor does the youngest first, so my 3 are the first patients of the day. I think that is great. We can get done and get home fairly early.
Besides the surgery on Tuesday, on Monday my DD14 and DH are going to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC for an 8th grade field trip. Then my oldest has the volleyball tournament in DC. So it will another crazy week, or should I say normal week for our family.
There are a few things I need to get under control once again. The first thing is menu planning. That has fallen by the wayside the past few months and my budget is noticing it, so here is my dinner menu for this upcoming week. Breakfasts are quick affairs like cereal or muffins during the school week. My older DDs pack their lunches, the middle 4 buy at school. DH and I either have left overs or sandwiches for lunch. The babies are still eating baby food, but are slowly moving to table foods.
Sunday, February 10
Chicken Parmesean, Spaghetti, Salad, Fudge Pie
Monday, February 11
Leftovers (with late arriving field trip, faith formation and volleyball practice I am not even going to try to fix something….)
Tuesday, February 12
Crockpot Meal: Pork Roast, Potatoes, Broccoli
Wedneday, February 13

So the menu is done for the week, the food is in the pantry or freezer so I am good to go for the week.
