Just in case you were wondering....

Just in case you were wondering and to keep me very humble, this afternoon I found myself very tired. I had trouble sleeping last night and I am still fighting a cold. This morning I posted my menu plan for the week. I cooked several pounds of boneless chicken breasts today for several meals this week and to freeze for future dishes. At about 4pm I talked with my husband. He came home unexpectedly for a short time and then headed back to the office deciding to pick up a sandwich on the way. So I did what every other well organized woman would do. I asked the kids what they wanted from McDonalds, got into my car, drove up to the black box, ordered 3 chicken bacon ranch salads for us girls and 3 chicken meals for the boys. I brought it home and we enjoyed a carpet picnic on the family room floor. I picked up all the trash and was thankful that although I posted my well intended plans today and just in case someone saw me driving away from McDonalds, when mom doesn't feel well the plan can change!

Good for you! Sometimes moms need a sick day and should have the night off from cooking. I hope you feel better soon. (haven't we been saying that to each other for far too long now?)

Lol!!! Doesn't it always happen that way....as soon as you go public with a plan it breaks!!! Good Post. I hope your feeling better.

Sometimes those spontaneous deviations from the plan (even when they're brought on by not feeling well) end up creating the best memories for our kids. Sounds like a great picnic!

I THOUGHT that was you driving through! Shame on you!!! (Just kidding!)
Hey, I'm a big fan of the drive through when need be, especially if Dad isn't coming home for dinner. I'm glad to know I'm in good company.
