All of a sudden, life seems to have imploded on me. My trip early last month took a week of planning and a week of recovery, and I’ve been racing to catch up ever since. But, time waits for no mom. Life continues: laundry piles up, schoolwork needs to be assigned and corrected, and my days are just chock full.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like feeling overwhelmed. Thankfully, I have a husband who’s great at troubleshooting. We put our heads together and decided that adding some convenience items back into our life is a good thing for this season. Freezer meals, baking ahead of time, homemade baking mixes, sandwiches at lunchtime, and breakfast from a box have been ways we’ve chosen to lighten my load as a homemaker so I can spend time on other things.
And a few paper plates never hurt anybody either.
What’s cooking ’round here this week:
