Well, this week has been a mess. On Monday, we skipped our usual grocery trip in favor of a wonderful bike ride and picnic with friends. Can’t beat that! I didn’t make a meal plan on Sunday because I knew I would not be shopping on Monday. So…I thought we would shop on Tuesday. I never got to meal planning on Monday, and Tuesday morning slipped away from me. I only had enough time to grab items for our Pancake Supper.
On Wednesday, I had the most excrutiatingly strained neck and a headache. Ouch…big time. I did not feel like going to the grocery store, or anywhere really. I limped my way to an exercise class that actually helped my neck quite a bit. Luckily, we have dinner at church on Wednesday, or else we would have had toast for dinner.
It is now Thursday. I have no groceries and no meal plan. Our car broke down, so I have no vehicle to go anywhere. To top it off, I have a sick child at home. Even if I had a car, we would be curled up here with kiddie movies, lots of construction paper, new crayons (the best!), ginger snaps, and tea. Not half bad. The groceries will happen when hubby gets home, and I’m just going to care for my little man and not worry about grown-up matters like menus, shopping lists, and budgets.
Hoping for a more thorough report next week…

It’s nice to have a week off from silly grown-up things like shopping and menus! And yes, there is something special about a brand new box o’ crayons. I loved that feeling!
yikes! Sounds like you are having a tough week. Is your neck and headache better at least? I totally agree about the new crayons. I love the smell of the fresh box, the orderly way they’re all in there with their smooth points…bliss!
Sounds like you are having one of those weeks – sometimes life gets in the way of menus and budgets! Hope you are feeling better!
